ResetSim normally don't affect the whims unless it causes the game to recalculate their mood or relocates them. Certain whims depend on what or who the sim is next to, but even then those whims can't always be fulfilled.

 

To me it looks like the game shows us certain whims, but those aren't always what the game expects. Meaning, it doesn't display the correct ones that correspond to what the sim wants to do. This is based on the fact that whenever I get whims that cannot be fulfilled, they're very rarely ever replaced by something else no matter what happens.

I'm getting a lot of Whims repeating that I've already done, such as Buy a Dryer when I already have one. Some whims are fulfilling perfectly fine, others are refusing to fulfill, such as the buy a toy whim no matter how many toys I buy.

I've been noticing this issue with the vampire family I just started playing in Windenburg, particularly with the child. Interestingly, he had whims to dance to stereo music and talk about his favorite band, neither of which I could get to complete, so I cancelled them. They fairly quickly came back up again and when I tried this time, they did complete. It seems random/inconsistent with when whims will or will not work.

I have nailed it down to this action as well. When I start a game whims work fine. But as soon as I have to travel elsewhere they stop working and won’t work again until I exit the game and restart.

This is now happening on PS4. Most whims do not fulfill. It used to just be marriage or baby sims, but now it's just about all of them.

For me the whims seem to be able to complete if I don't leave the lot in between receiving the whim and fulfilling it. If I go somewhere else, or go somewhere and then return the whims can no longer be fulfilled. Locking or not locking the whim doesn't seem to make a difference. Once I'm back home I can cancel all whims and try to complete the new ones that appear before leaving the lot again.
