Any way to disable phone text messages?
« on: January 22, 2017, 04:38:32 PM »
Ehrmuhrgurd, I'm sick of getting texted nonstop "I can't get you out of my head!" "Let's get breakfast!" "You have good taste, go to the festival with me" ad nauseum. Turning off the phone ring doesn't help, since it still comes through or starts ringing when they're calling a non-active sim. And not only that, when they come through it sets the game speed back to 1.

Is there any way to turn off these messages? Heck, I'd take a trait "Cantankerous Sim" if it'd get rid of them :P

Unfortunately there is no way to stop these txts and phone calls from occurring. There may be a mod out there that does do this but not in a vanilla game.

Once you have a few sims in your household they just become untenable. It drives me a little demented!

Unfortunately, Playalot is right; I haven't seen any way to stop them from coming. Although thanks for the new word :P

I agree that it is unfourtunate that we cannot turn off text messages. The sheer amount of text messages that my Sims receive is just insane!! Also, they always seem to come at the most ridiculous hours!

I've never gotten these messages, though I've seen them on gameplay videos. I assume this is something that was added with an expansion? I only have the base game.
