Hi, I have a trouble with one relationship that I'm not sure if it's above lovebird or not. (it seems sometimes equal to lovebird in term of friendship/romance levels)

Can someone confirm me this is fine?
 The text is roughly "Love coming from friendship A strong friendship who became a love that last"

amoureux

I know this is the French term for love birds. From the pink bar, I would say it is. Anyone else? @MarianT @LenaLJ

I think that's the same as sweethearts. In any case, it's a higher level than "romantic interests" and at least as high as lovebirds.

Maybe it's the equivalent of sweetheart. For lovebird, I know the word used is "tourtereaux" which comes from the bird "turtledove".  But this one, sometimes the levels seemed equal with lovebird, annd in one case, it changed to this after I checked, and I wasn't sure of anything.

Thank you all. :D

"Sweethearts" is "The foundation of a strong friendship has formed a lasting love."  which seems pretty close to the translation you gave.

So, if I'm calculating right :
Lovebirds and highter : 69
Gold date with them : 55

69 x (1 + (.05 x 55)) = 258.75

It was a fun and great challenge.

David Letterman followed everything to the letter, of course, and was able to obtain 61 Lovebirds with 52 GoldMedal Dates.

(52 X .05) = 2.60 + 1.00 = 3.60

61 X 3.60 = 219.60

Lovebirds = 52 Sims = 52 points

GMD = 52. 52 X .05 = 2.60. Final GMD = 1.00 + 2.60 = 3.60

Total = 52 X 3.60 = 187.2 points.

Lovebirds = 59 Sims = 59 points

GMD = 28. 28 X .05 = 1.40. Final GMD = 1.00 + 1.40 = 2.40

Total = 59 X 2.40 = 141.6 points.

My sim had 81 lovebirds, all having a gold date too, that should end out in a score of.

GM = 1,00 (81 * 0,05) = 5,05
Total = 81 * 5,05 = 409,05

Posting my score at 5 minutes to midnight, technically my sim hasn't aged to adult yet and has one sim-day left but I'm going to post my score to where I reached anyway if that's okay?

Lovebirds: 37
GMD: 37
37 x 2.85 = 105.45

Carl hits me up with a sneak peek of his latest YouTube video on how to seduce Father Winter in Seasons. It's really great stuff and has a ton of solid, general romancing tips.

Congratulations LenaJ!!

I had to sit this one out. With so much going on around the past few weeks, I just didn't have it in me to do it.  :-[ :-\

Ohh finally a win again, but still a bit sad to see so few participating, might have been because of the summer?

My strategy was rather simple. First I made a list of the sims already in town. And marking them with their age.
When starting the game I imediately joined the club Partyhouse, as they have the Rally the Troops ability, so that i did not have to think about eating or sleeping.
I ventured out with them to different lots in all worlds, trying to get the game to spawn different new sims.
Each time I saw a new sim I added them to the right place in the list.
All the time traveling, I tried to boost my charisma as high as possible, and made sure to become friends with Jade Rosa so that I could take over the club.

When I reached that point I took a trip to Salvadorado, here the game creates alot of new young adult/adult/elder sims which I fastly added to the list. At this point the charisma skill was high enough to make an enchanting introduction, to get them started for when they later had to become lovebirds.

All this was done within the first 24 hours.
I then set up the home lot with only 3 sofas (added the decoration gotten from the gold dates later), just around where people would come to the lot, and a shower. I later added a pc for when the fun was to low.
Then I removed everyone from the club, except my next target lovebird.
A date would not last too long, did not really time them, but it would always included sit and talk with your date, flirt 3 times with your date, and then either give massage or passionate kiss.
With those things you nearly have the 10 interactions needed, and that is enough for the gold date.

So from that point it got rather repetetive, with only something else going on when one of my targets would not show up directly in the add to club menu, and I had to travel to another lot to get them to pop up.

I hope it explains what I did,  I am rather tired so not sure how good I was at explaining.

Congratulations @LenaLJ!

I also made a list of all the sims already in the world and traveled around to spawn/meet more.  I joined Good Timers for the Rally the Troops and moved into the cheapest apartment, furnished it with a sofa and a big TV.  I merged the two bedrooms into one, and put a TV, a bed and a fridge in there.  At the gym in the Windenburg, I baked a cake and put it in the fridge at home - that was for aging up sims to YA.  The club activity was watching tv, so that's all everyone did.  I had to move the bedroom tv to home inventory before unlocking the door to keep extra sims from going in there when the door was unlocked.

Then I added the next batch of sims to the club, started an event at the apartment, and took them into the bedroom one at a time, locked the door, asked them on a date and romanced them and got a gold date.

I didn't think of going to Selvadorado - that was a great idea.  I probably wouldn't have had to age up sims if I had done that.  The only sim I couldn't romance successfully was Eric Lewis - it was his turn right after both Vivian and Dennis died, and he was too sad.

My sim lived in Mid-NoWhere in Windenburg, which had the advantage of no street traffic, which was very useful later.  I built a three room house, a kitchen/seating area with kitchen stuff & a sofa, a bathroom, and a bedroom.
I went to the gym to up my charisma and meet some people.  After my charisma was around 4, I joined & quit every club except the Good Timers (for Rally the Troops) and then created my own club - the new club is where I would add the next lovebird.  Club activities were friendly, funny, and romantic interactions.  When club points were high enough, I bought the playful perk so that I could switch club vibe and make both sims playful at the same time.

If the sim lived with other people, I'd go to their house, introduce myself (Cheerful if there were other people around, Enchanting if they were alone & the final person in the household alphabetically) to the adults & young adults, then head home.  They would have a GMD and then I'd drop them off on some random lot and then go to the next lovebird's place.  If they lived alone, I'd have the GMD at their place. Every so often, I'd go in public to meet the randomly spawned sims, but as the game went on - that got iffy.  I couldn't give a massage most of the time (just didn't have the option and I still don't know what it takes to make that a possibility.) 

As far as fun - James would like you to meet Kendrick Behr, Dax & Barayan Bjergsen, Reese, Yang, & Bo Caliente, Halle Capricciosa, Caitlyn Delgato, Micah Fyres, Alexandrea & Cornelius Goth, Bristol Haas, Tanya Landgraab, Cory & Lisa Lee, Addyson & Erika Lynx, Rodney Munch, Uriel Ojo, Justice Pancakes, Layton Pizzazz, Madalyn Rosa, Rosemary & Ember Spencer-Kim, and Alysia Villareal (actually, he needs to meet most of them - he hasn't yet).  Dates ended on a very positive note.

It got a bit repetitive toward the end, but it was pretty fun.

@SueDenim I was only able to get the massage option when the coupe was sitting.  There is a "Give Massage" and an "Offer Massage" - one comes up when they're sitting and one when they're standing, but maybe the standing one takes a stronger relationship, because I never got that one.  But if they were sitting and flirty, I'd always get the sitting one.  Sorry I don't remember which one is sitting and which is standing.
