It’s not giving me the option to fill out the answers for starting a new topic for some reason so I’m sorry about that but I’m on PS4 so no mods and I’m on the latest patch. 

 

I’m getting excessive phone calls from family members. Specifically the “we’re thinking about trying for a baby” call. 
I have said no MULTIPLE times and she’s called me 3 times today to ask the same question over and over. It’s the same sim and she’s calling multiple family members (I play rotationally)

@SimGuruRitzy Hi, no it’s not that issue. It’s just the same phone call over and over asking if she should try for a baby. Even when I say no, she will call back and ask the exact same question a few hours later.

@SimGuruRitzy My Sim is in college and her mom calls her everyday it seems to ask if her and her husband should try for a baby. I always tell her no but she keeps calling. I like that we get these calls but not over and over again lol. Also a PS4 player here.

I've noticed that Sims who are Family-Oriented are particularly obsessed with babies, which makes a certain amount of sense. That said... any time I'm not playing the main household in one save the family-oriented Mom will just HOUND us asking if she should have a baby. I always say yes and she never does.

@xochiquetzl_xkvn Yes! My sim is family oriented too! Maybe that’s what triggers the constant phone calls. Perhaps it needs a bit more tuning

Same issue. Son called his dad at least 4 times and I said yes each time.

 

Both he and his husband are Family Oriented, as well.
