Stay Away from this Guy in Egypt!
« on: January 10, 2010, 11:49:03 AM »
Remember me telling you all about my sim that had a son with the Special Merchant in Egypt that she didn't know about? That guy had apparently fathered like 5 kids all from different mothers. Well the current sim I'm playing is now in Egypt and he showed up in town. He's not the Special Merchant this time, but I still think he has less than honorable intentions! His name is Sekhmet Hawas.......so beware of him!!

He started walking over to my sim and this is the balloon that came up over his head. It looks as if it's a want to break up a marriage. (even though my sim isn't married)  I had her teleport away from him right away so they couldn't meet. LOL



Here's a better view....I know it's hard to see, but it's definitely broken rings that he's thinking about.

Must be a hopeless romantic with commitment issues. Reminds me of my heartbreaker and gold digger. I like this guy ;) I actually had to check the wish list on the wikia to see if there was one to ask x sim to break up with y. It's a social interaction, I know, but I couldn't find a wish to do it on the list. I really thought one of my Sims wanted Nancy Landgraab to leave her husband. Maybe it was just me.

I don't know what he's up to....but he's just creepy in my opinion. LOL I know that sounds silly, but he's always lurking around trying to hook up with the women. I don't like him.  :D :D

Well, I'll tell you what he's up to...  I noticed my Sims last name changed from St.Parent to Hawas.  Hmmm, no big deal, I thought.  Maybe that was the translation of the French name, I don't know.  So my MARRIED Sim goes home, and she's still called Hawas!  Hmmm, so I have a quick look at her profile.  Erk!  She has an Egyptian SON!!  By this Hawas character!  She didn't go through a pregancy or anything, and I have no idea where my son is, but he's over there somewhere.  Now I wonder if I have to go look for him and take custody!!  Very peculiar....

Phyrie, the EXACT same thing happened to my sim! Problem is, when she went back to Eqypt and found her son, this creepy dude was nowhere to be found...he skipped town. I literally looked everywhere because I wanted her to divorce him! Since she had married that guy, she never got the interaction to marry the guy she was really in love with.

That guy Sekhmet has a hidden agenda for sure! He's out to impregnate and marry all the female sims I think!  :-\

How very odd!  Have the developers not addressed this?  As I searched for this topic, I discovered that this same thing has happened a LOT to others!  My Sim is already married to the one she left at home (I find two Sims on vacation too distracting to manage) so I guess she had a ** out of wedlock?  In real life, the boy would have her husband's name, and would legally be his, since they are married when she had him.  Curiouser and curiouser...

Just saying as a precaution for all challenge players : If the challenge requires you to go to Egypt, or you go to Egypt for some reason (to get seeds maybe or fish), play as a guy, unless this guy is heterosexual and marries both girls and guys. Then, I'm not sure what to do. That'd be just  creepy

Good advice jmz. It seems that with this guy, all you have to do is meet him to have a child by him. (that's why I wouldn't let my current sim even meet him....LOL)

I would think that the game developers have to be aware of this. How could be there be ONE guy in Egypt who seems to have the ability to marry and impregnate unknowing sims?  I would think there would have to be some sort of special programming to have that happen over and over again. I bet it is some developer's idea of a joke.

Even I don't think it's funny, so that's saying something. I mean all of us spend huge amounts of time with our Sims whether it's just personal games or highly competitive challenges, and to have a monkey wrench thrown in like that would just infuriate me. I'm a control freak. I like to micromanage. It gives me a sense of pride when things are running like a well oiled machine. Oh, my god. If that happened to me I'd go absolutely Braveheart on my computer.

LOL Metro....it DID infuriate me! Especially since it seemed to change the course of her life. (couldn't get married to the one she really loved)  Now that I'm aware of that guy, I just try to have my female sims steer clear of him so they don't suffer the same fate. It's really weird too because it's as if that guy gravitates toward all the female sims. I've played a couple of different female sims since the one that got pregnant by him, and he always seems to want to come over and talk to them and get to know them. Now that I know his intentions, I just try my best to keep my female sims away from him!

ETA: Maybe I should try a test and allow another female sim to meet him and see if she also gets married and pregnant by him.

I mean if EA wants to humorously create this unique Egyptian love machine guy, great. It's funny. But, the consequences aren't funny if you really take your game seriously and have certain expectations of how you'd like things played out. I mean what the heck? Is this EA's idea of some bizarre immaculate conception and Mr. Homewrecker is the god figure? Crazy. This really should not happen. Yes, there should be some chance and unknowns in the game. That's real life. Getting pregnant by this guy who you never had your Sim Woo Hoo with is not cool. Tsk, tsk, EA.

I totally agree Metro!  I think I will do a test tonight and take one of my other sims to Egypt and let her actually interact with this guy. Nothing fancy or flirty....just basically the same interaction that my other sim had with him....which was cordial but not overly friendly. Then I'll see what happens and see if any kids show up in her friends panel after a few days.

I'll let you all know :)

Looking forward to hearing your report, Robin.  How does one let EA know that we don't find this amusing (if that was their intent...)?

They should make it such that polygamy is good in that marriages over borders don't count. This is a serious suggestion; what if someone wanted to play a sim who lives a bunch of different lives in all of these locations?

Maybe they should add a whole criminal aspect to the next expansion and make it so that our sims can forge identities and live two lives, even in the same city. (political career AND crook?!)

That one was a less serious suggestion.

BE WARNED:
there is a guy exactly like that in all locations.
My TEEN sim went there one day and discovered she was the mother of a child. It glitched up my favorite game, (my starter legacy), because at first I felt I should take the child back with me to Riverview. I did but anytime one person interacts with her she freezes up everything and makes it impossible to move. :(
Now I can't even get rid of her either.
I don't want to kill her either!
So I had to re-start my legacy.

This might be pushing it for a "T" rating though. And, since you can't stay for very long in other locations, and the places don't have any real jobs, they'd have to put in a LOT of coding, almost make it like a whole new game, like "Sims 3.5" or something lol.

Well this stinks!   ???

So I decided to play an existing sim in Riverview, take her to Egypt, and see if she'd wind up with any kids she didn't know about. The sim I was playing is named Tyra Esposito and she lives with Jaime Kent and Barbara Carr and their household is called the "Kraft" family.

Anyway, I played her for a couple of days, built up some skills, traveled to Egypt and she had made enough money to buy her own little house, so I had her buy the house just two doors down which was empty. (next to their house is the Carpenter-Rhodes house and then the next one was empty....a cute little row house)  I liked this sim so I decided to move her out so that maybe I could play her again sometime and I went and played a different family for a day and then went back to check on Tyra to see if she had any kids yet. Come to find out....she is back in the house with Jaime and Barbara and their household has ZERO funds again! What the heck?? She still has the skills she built up and the inventory of stuff she got while in Egypt, but she is now dating Trigger Broke and does not live alone anymore.

I guess when you're playing the EA created sims, they just reset back after you play them...I don't know. Anyway, she didn't have any unknown kids in her friends panel, but I'm wondering if I need to create my own sim to take over there to see if it will happen because apparently, we don't have as much control over the EA sims as we would think.

By the way.....I meant to tell you all this in my last post, but I suppose it deserves its own post. Regarding the Hawas family in Egypt....where the "dirty old man" lives......I decided to package up that household....(house and all its members) and save it to the library so I could place them in Riverview and play them. I wanted to see if there was anything out of the ordinary with that Sekhmet Hawas. I really didn't find anything too weird about him. His traits are light sleeper, angler, schmoozer, never nude, and absent minded. The only people who showed up as "family" in his friend's panel were the people he was living with. (son, Sopdu, daughter-in-law Nepthy, two granddaughters Meret and Shermine, and grandson Geb) The skills that he has built up were the fishing and handiness....but they were not maxed out.

So I took old Sekhmet out in Riverview and he does seem to befriend other sims pretty quickly...I guess because of his schmoozer trait. I haven't checked the other families yet to see if he's managed to reproduce with any of those sims yet....but I'll check. He has a girlfriend now, who I can NOT find in Riverview anywhere!!  He's going steady with her and he can call her but I can't find where she lives. I followed her yesterday to see if I could figure out where she lives, but she was going to work and she works at the Stadium. So I can't check her to see if she's had a baby by him or not. (her name is Shana Natcher....anyone know where she lives in Riverview?)

Anyway, playing the Hawas family has been fun. I like Nepthy and Sopdu and their kids! LOL Nepthy has a LTW of being surrounded by family and has since had another set of twins (boys) while I was playing them. So they have a total of 5 kids now. I had Geb grow up and move out because they were running out of room.  :D

If you go to Sekhmet's 'profile' page while you are playing him (where it has his aging bar), you can click on his family tree button and that will tell you who all of his children are and who their mothers are.  ;)

Bah, this just happened to me. My character Henry Jones was exploring Egypt and of course came into contact with this family. I then started getting notices referring to Henry Kamel. I checked my profile page and, lo and behold, I had been renamed to Henry Kamel and had also gathered a daughter (child, not toddler).

Luckily Henry is a single sim, so this was largely rectified by a trip to the city hall as soon as I got back and changed his name back to Jones (after all, the plan is for him to spawn young Indiana at some point  ;)).

Whilst still in Egypt I visited the child in question and after introducing myself (!), the first thing she did was complain about being hungry. So I'm now putting this down as Henry taking pity on a poor Egyptian family and 'adopting' the child.

As such, I can just about live with this, but I can see that this would be really annoying to a sim further along its life plan or with an already-existing family.

Oh, and "hello forum" :) Been lurking for a while, and this is a great resource.

This is really turning out to be a major bug! There are similar complaints on the official Sims 3 forum, so I'm sure EA is aware of the problem, and hopefully working on a patch.

Are you sure EA did not want it to be like this and add a little spice to your traveller's live?
