Both Sims Being Playful on Date
« on: December 19, 2015, 03:41:56 PM »
Hi, My sim is on a date w/his girlfriend and one of the goals is to make both sims playful at the same time. At the moment, he is very playful and she is very flirty. I got 1 out of 2 so far. I keep doing playful interactions, but she just will not become playful! Is there a cheat or anything I can do? She will need to be at work pretty quick so I don't have a lot of time. Thanks!

You could try 'testingcheats on' then 'Sims.remove_all_buffs' which would make her 'fine' and then start telling jokes. I don't know of a cheat to put a sim in a particular emotion although there probably are some somewhere.

Well, I don't know if your trick worked or if just repeating playful/funny actions worked, but I *finally* got the second both sims playful at the same time buff. After that, it was just 2 deep conversations and he had a gold date. :) whew! lol

Getting them playful enough that it overrides the flirty but without making them hysterical can be tricky. I keep my fingers that goal doesn't come up on dates and try to skip it if I can and still get gold. That playful emotion... it's a killer!  ;)

I like to put some My Sims Trophies and Playful paintings in the room. You can then enable/disable the auras as needed. The My Sims Trophies are the easiest way I've found to get Sims playful at the same time. But, like Playalot said, if they are already very flirty, it gets more difficult. They can also become playful by watching comedy on tv or funny videos on the computer. Playful isn't an emotion I like very much, so I tend to favor the trophies. Turn 'em on, Sims get playful. Turn 'em off, and they're back to whatever they were before that. They work great at parties. :)

@reggikko I used the My Sims trophies when the game first came out and my sim ended up hysterical lol. It was a pretty fast learning curve about emotions! I tend to keep the playful paintings in a small room somewhere close to the room I throw parties in and direct whoever needs to be playful to the room, turn on the playful aura and then turn the auras off the second the whim completes. Also if you have a sim in the entertainers career, the comedian branch drinking a playful essence of cow plant just before work starts is good as it's usually only takes a quick calm down in front of the mirror right after works finished for the sim in question to return to happy or fine etc. I'm still paranoid about the playful emotion as I've had so many of my dynasty sims hysterical, talk about inducing watcher-panic!

There was one small, minor problem w/your solution reggikko; they were in the park, lol. So no access to tv or anything like that. I kept queuing up playful/funny actions w/him and eventually she became playful. In the future, I might take a My Sim trophy with next time and see what happens. I'm not even sure why the playful requirement came up!

Oh! I always do my dates on the home lot, so I can count on fulfilling the requirements easily.  Flirty date reward in the bedroom and My Sims in the living room. ;)

@Sonshine
Whether I'm at the park or some other place, there's usually one requirement that I can't (or would take too much trouble/time to) do, like your "both sims playful," "work out together," "have a drink together," "play chess together x times," and so on...always a non-romantic activity.

My experience has been that I can just skip one requirement like this (only one of this kind per date; at home, it varies with what furnishings you have: workout equipment, bar, chess table, etc.) per date, as long as I do the main "socialize" one and all the romantic/social ones.
Just my two cents. Maybe I've just been lucky with what date requirements are rolled.

@Sonshine
I wanted to revise my preceding post. My teen just went on a date to a park and only achieved a silver date because he didn't (try to) satisfy the "Both sims playful" milestone.
I've been corrected in the party thread as well, but it seems that if a milestone appears early, it needs to be fulfilled to allow other milestones to appear. Otherwise, achieving a gold medal becomes impossible.

When going to someone else's house, though, it's possible to take along some playful paintings. I was able to fulfill that "Sims gets playful at same time 0/3" milestone by hanging up some playful paintings at the house where I was throwing the party. Don't forget to put the paintings back into your inventory before leaving the lot.

I struggled with this too. I use the plumbob lamp for that aura. Works every time.

I guess it becomes quite tricky if you are on a community lot. Telling multiple jokes in a row will work if you spam them fast and furiously. I tend to leave this goal till the last, just in case gold will complete without it. Then spam the jokes and the minute they hit playful, which tends to be very playful or even hysterical due to all the flirty moodlets, I head them straight for the bathrooms to use the mirrors to calm down. I still loath this goal.  ::)
Dragging a playful painting out of your sims inventory would work too though, and more effectively, I just always forget to bring one along.

I honestly skip that task and just keep the date on the "romantic" track as it is much easier to score gold without attempting the emotional yo-yo. The absolute easiest way to get gold is to have the date at home and to follow the romantic track to the almost inevitable woohoo. Unless something freakish and unforeseen happens, you'll get gold 100% of the time doing this. You don't have to complete ALL tasks that come up, only enough to fill the bar. Even on a community lot it is still typically easier to stick with the romance options. 

The only exception to this might be if your Sim has very low charisma (less than 4 or so) and low relationship with the date. Then you may get failures and embarrassed moodlets if you try to queue romance interactions.

Haha, I do that for parties but never thought of dragging a date to the bathroom to look at a playful painting together. That would just be too classy!

It's best, if the Sims start out merely "Happy" or "Inspired", before the date. I try for playful first, because if it's unprovoked playfulness, it wears off quickly, once an aura is turned off. I like the little Sim trophies, because they work anywhere & they don't need a wall. Once that is accomplished, you can put the trophy back in your pocket & playful will wear off. Then, just stick a flirty painting on the wall, or a use a flirty sculpture, if you've made any of those.
