Yep. This is happening to me. I’m playing a good vampire. Very annoying!

Found the issue located in the tuning file vampire_Drink_WithPermission.

<L n="basic_extras">
...
  <V t="loot">
    <U n="loot">
      <L n="loot_list">
        <T>195286<!--loot_DramaNode_Reputation_Dialog_Bad_CaughtTakingBlood--></T>
      </L>
    </U>
  </V>
</L>

This "Loot Action" shouldn't be in the list, especially when there isn't a broadcaster for general reputation loss when spotted like the "Compel" and uncontrollable drink interactions have.

 

 

 

EDIT: On a more serious note, this "Loot Action" is also found in vampire_Drink_Target and vampire_AskToDrink_Target. These interactions are pushed on the target while drinking from them. The result is the victim being accused of drinking from others.

So does that mean editing the file would fix/workaround this issue?

It's an instruction for the devs, but a modder with the correct tools could edit those resources to fix the problem. It's more involved than looking for something in the game's install directory.

i'm also having this issue. i have never drank blood without permission, i always ask (and receive) permission, and no other sims are even around to witness it other than the "victim" anyway. but i'll get text messages from random sims who aren't even on the same lot saying they can't believe i drank without permission right after i drink from someone else (with permission). and sometimes it does negatively effect my reputation, but it doesn't seem to happen every time (or maybe it does and i've just missed it).

 

the packs i have installed are:

city living, get famous, get to work, vampires (obviously), and vintage glamour.

Could that same solution work for Sims who have been drank from? I don't even have any vampires in my household, and after Vlad broke in, the Sim that was targeted got the scolding message.

One of my celeb sims received this message the day after a vampire drunk from her. Talk about victim shaming - my goodness!
In all seriousness, it was a bit strange. :O

The explanation in the edit section of the post is why victims are being blamed. Both the vampire and victim schedule themselves for a chance to receive the call within 48 sim hours.

Posting here, because when I try to start a new topic with my bug, there is no option to submit, just to preview. This is the closest I can find to my bug.

I had this happen to my sim as well today!  However, my Vampire Sim isn't a celebrity but his wife is.  She was accused of drinking from sims without permission but she ISNT even a vampire.  never has been as he refuses her request to turn her every time!  Is that a bug?
