Re: Traveling resets other Sims' aspirations

@moneser In your title you talk about aspirations, in the text about whims. From your description it's the whims ? Is that correct ? Is there also an issue with the aspiration ?

@moneser Hey, I just noticed the same issue! Checked everything without mods. it's still there! Basically when ever my sim travels all the other sims that are left at home have their whims completely reset even if i pin them.

I have the same issue, and it's already driving me batty. Especially with toddlers, as most times their whims completely reset, so all I have to work with is an emotion whim for awhile!

I mean whims, sorry. I'm not sure what's going on, because sometimes the title appears as "whims" and sometimes as "aspirations"--but I'm talking about whims.

 

It's driving me batty too. My favorite expansions are Get to Work and Dine Out, but any time I send my sim to work or the restaurant, it resets everyone else's whims.

I changed the title tag from NEEDS INPUT to OPEN because I answered the question.

@moneser Needs input has nothing to do with answering question but more to get more voices from other people.

Please refer to this what tags mean: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/INFORMATION-How-does-this-forum-work/m-p/3445297#M83544

@emaalinen Merged your post but question: Does it only happen when travelling to Strangervillle for you or other hoods too ?

This bug is present for a very long time and has not been fixed! I am a whims-based player so it is very frustrating for me that I constantly have to travel with all my sims or not at all, since if I travel individually the whims of all my other sims in the household will reset. No more romantic dates for mom and dad! Now they only can go out dragging their kids and grandma along. In all seriousness I really hope that EA acknowledges this issue and fixes is after all!
