Anyone else have goofball sims obsessed with mischief interactions? I realize they did an update on traits but this isn’t good considering aliens have “memory erase” as a mischief interaction. I also had to take away my sim daughter’s stuffed animal away because my mean sim is obsessed with hitting it constantly. He never wants to do anything else. I’m on console and PC now. I am aware I can fix the issue on PC but not on my console.

Yes, it seems that since the patch my Goofballs are constantly being mischievous and pranking toilets. I expected a little bit of tuning to the traits but this is excessive and makes playing Goofballs unenjoyable for me. They watch the comedy channel more, but they seem to lean heavily on mischief interactions when talking to other sims.

The problem is, is that it’s not tuned at all and it’s 99.9% of it is mischievous. Maybe one friendly interaction here and there. Idk why people accept obsessive behavior.

Yes that's the problem I'm having too, it's pretty much all my Goofballs are doing now.  Most of their socials are mischievous interactions and it's excessive.  I think it's been tuned too high and could use some adjusting .Make it less frequent than it is now.

How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.72.28.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, City Living, Discover University, Get Together, Seasons, Outdoor Retreat
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I'm not sure if its related, but out of the sims that keep doing it, one has mischief skill and the other is a goofball. Have them exist in a house with a toilet.
What happens when the bug occurs? My sims will prank their own toilet on their own without prompt. This has happened twice in one day.
What do you expect to see? Sims should not prank toilets (especially not the only one in their house) without being prompted to.

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

My sims are now peeing themselves because the toilet is always broken and dirty.

@palithepancake Going to merge this with the goofball thread. Sounds the same issue.

@iamoz96The toilet pranking is the worst! I mean come on EA, at least provide us with the ability unprank it! There isnt even a cheat code! Its ridiculous that Sims are forced to always use and break the toilet and have to fix it every time its been pranked. How about handiness skill determines how effectively you can unprank a toilet without it going off?

I have the same problem, after the latest patch, my goofball sim is always using mischievous interactions, when he should be using more funny interactions, since the extra command for the goofball Sims is under the Funny Interactions menu. In my opinion for the goofball Sims there should be a percentage of 70% funny interactions and 30% mischievous interactions. If it happens to a cohabitating couple it's pretty annoying, because then they start fighting if I leave them independent. And the toilet prank is definitely the worst.

 

I'm playing on PC.
