I am getting notifications for unplayed sims in relation to their celebrity status, like this one: simsnotification.jpg.

 

Babs is a sim in my game that I created, but her household is not an active or played one, just a sim I moved into the world. I am getting these notifications for ANY sim with celebrity status, including the premade ones that came with De Sol Valley which I have never played. Celebrity sims are also constantly walking into my house and acting like they live there, even when I lock my doors.

Hi @Amy571

 

what kinds of mods are you using ? Did you try without them ?

I am currently using the most recent version of MC Command Center, and I am using 21 days in a season mod, Force to Leave mod, and Pet Pet Fix mod from LittleMsSam. I have tried without them and it still happens. I also tried repairing my game and it didn't help.

Could be a setting in MCCC then. Have you checked on those ?

 

Did you delete your localthumbcache file after removing the mods and testing without ? Did you also test a save that never saw any mods ?

This is normal. When earning a star you are likely to get one of these from someone you may only have briefly talked to probably on a Gig. I think it is to reflect real life where it is not uncommon that if you gain fame or fortune you suddenly hear from people you hardly know.

Well, seriously ? I've never gotten such a message so far.

Seems so targeted towards a certain person that's not you.

 

Sounds a bit like the investor message for households that you aren't playing. Maybe it only occurs if you're playing rotationally (although that particular one seems unplayed)

Re: Getting celebrity notifications from unplayed households.

I do not remember from what level it starts, but suddenly after getting the next star you will get these congratulations in a large amount. Often this is finished with the sentence: it's nice to have you among friends. And this is sometimes from people who your star gave autograph one times. Just like in real life ...
I do not know if it matters, but you must have great reputation to receive this congratulations.

It is easy to miss as it is not a phone call just a standard message and you will only get it if the sim that gained a star has acquaintances that are under the sims level in fame..Once i got it from the director of the last Gig I was on.Standard smile

Do you guys play rotationally or not ? Pretty sure I can't have missed cause I always read my notifications

I mean, I've seen this for my household but not for NPCs. As far as I understand the OP, neither of the two Sim on the picture are in the active household.
