Prom
« on: June 04, 2011, 02:39:18 PM »
I just had my first Sim Prom today in my Dynasty and it's a really interesting thing! The Limo arrives about an Hour before it starts or you can drive there yourself, it seems that your Date arrives at your House to go there with you although neither of my Twins dates went with them in the Limo, then your date arrives and you get notifications that X is really getting on with Y. I had my Dynasty Spare take a Guy she just met to Prom, they went from Aquaintances all the Way to maxed Relationships and even became Boy Friend and Girl Friend in there! The Prom Queen gets a Moodlet and a Crown. One Twin had One more School Friend than the Other and that seemed to be the determining Factor, the Pictures your Teens get also have different pictures. One Twin and her Date were dancing almost, the other Twin had her Boyfriend doing the Girl Position and her doing the Guy one of him draped on her showing off his legs! Lol! I only had a positive experience of the Prom so far. You get a mini Photograph like from the Mobile or the Small Portrait on the Camera and if they get Prom Queen they get a Crown.  :)

Just like samoht said, I had one twin teen go single and the other twin took her date and were named Queen and King of the prom.  The first twin managed to snag a romantic interest while there.  Some of the sayings in the right corner were really neat.  I have more pics of other things in Generations too.

I am wondering what prompts the Prom? Is it when the teen is nearing the end of teenage days? Because I play with aging off, so I'm hoping I can still do prom.

My teen went to prom every Sunday evening she was a teen.  It seemed like it was just on the schedule automatically.

My Girls had Prom on the Monday of their last week at School. I'd think it could be random but It would give you a few days just to make friends and get in a chance at winning the Prom King or Queen, I think amount of Friends influences that.

My eldest teen girl got the prompt to invite someone to the prom as she was approaching her young adult birthday, but her younger teen brothers soon got the prompt as well. All three rode to the prom in a limo--they would have missed the prom entirely if I hadn't heard the limo's horn because I had all three of them slaving in the garden as it pulled up! It was a Tuesday night--I guess her upcoming birthday determined the date.

Berta, my eldest girl, was elected prom queen and her step-brother, Sam Sekemoto, was elected prom king. Um... awkward. They had a great time and improved relationships with their dates, but their younger half-brother was a typical freshman dork, falling flat on his face on the dance floor. Poor kid!

It's a nice addition to the game, I think. The messages in the corner are a hoot.

Are prom nights, rabbit hole events? i.e. you can't see what's happening or are prom nights like parties when you can interact with other Sims there? I'm just two days into generations... Thanks! :)

It's in the School Rabbit Hole. So far I think the only way to influence Prom King and Queen is through Friends at School.

Prom seems to be a random event.  My teen's date showed up at his house but did not get into the limo with him.  According to the announcements, he and his date and a wonderful time.  He was also crowned King of the Prom and brought home his crown and a picture of the two of them dancing.

The funny part was that his date stayed at his house and did her homework then played with his brothers.  Somehow she ended up being in both places at once ???.

My brother and sister Sims just went to the prom last night.  They both did not have any dates, but that did not turn out to be a problem. They had a great time and were separately crowned King and Queen of the night. I say separate  because each of them had a solo picture souvenir. They both received their crowns. It was a wonder to me that they were crowned because first of all, they had no dates, I thought only pairs get crowned. I was thinking it was because of friendliness ( the girl "April" had the friendly trait), but her brother Willard had the evil trait, so I guess popularity is not it. I still thought it was fabulous and I was so happy for them! They used to live kinda boring lives, April is a home buddy who spends time watching TV and caring for her toddler sister, while her teen brother Willard just goes on his evil ways, unpopular, just wants to be a scientist. Generations sure made their lives interesting!  ;D

Same here, one of my Girls Dates came to their house first with his Brother who was with her Sister, I then realised that only 3 of them left and 1 stayed but apaprently he was still at the Dance!

I had a male teen attend Prom with his Romantic Interest - it was Thursday of his first week of school, which he started on Monday. She came to the house and didn't get in the limo with him, but eventually left (I assumed to go to the dance - there was no 'goodbye' pop-up).  I got a series of pop-up messages: he and his date had a lot of fun dancing, he was crowned Prom King, and he came home with a Girlfriend instead of an Interest (which I hadn't quite wanted, but sometimes I have to remember that the game isn't kidding about the free will thing. :) )

I sent my heir, his 2 adopted brothers, 2 adopted sisters, and a former imaginary friend to the prom.  Several of them came home after getting into fights and being rejected.  The former imaginary friend and one of the adopted brothers are now romantic.  It was definitely interesting, oh and two of the kids were brought home by the police.

I sent my oldest daughter and her younger brother to prom. Jillian, the daughter, went with her girlfriend and Darius went solo. While there Darius was crowned king and Jillian queen. Darius got a romantic interest while he was there except there is a slight problem. His romantic interest was a dude.  :o I was shocked. Like i think there is something in the water in twinbrook. (i believe that is the name of the neighborhood). Besides that they had a wonderful time.

As I was starting Generations for the first time, a game tip on the loading screen said that popularity IS how you win prom king or queen
It always seems impossible until its done.

In my test game the brother and sister ended up getting prom king and queen! I thought that was hilarious..must have been embarrassing to have the couple dance with your brother.  :D

I definitely don't want my sims to go with one of the same gender. No offense though. Is there any way to choose the gender you want or something? Reject the invitation from someone with same gender??

One way, is to have your sim have a boyfriend/girlfriend and one ask the other to the prom.  If they go by themselves, there is a chance they will end up with a romantic interest and once at the prom, you can't do anything to stop the interest. :)

My Sim went to prom with his imaginary friend who he'd made real, and they became romantic interests there!

Oh. I actually don't mind, is that most of the time my little sister sits watching me play. I can barely do anything. I figure something out.

My prom experience was defiantly interesting! My sim was asked by her Romantic Interest, her brother was asked by his imaginary friend who's a boy. The sister was crowned as Prom Queen, and her brother (who has no connections outside of his family) was crowned King! But then something interesting happened, the sister started going steady with the imaginary friend! When I read that, I nearly spit out the juice that I was drinking at the computer screen! Later in their life, the imaginary friend and the sister gave off beautiful offspring. :P

Do all Teens go to prom? Because in a game I'm playing to test Generations the two teens have just aged up to Young Adults and they never got the opportunity to go to prom.

I think it just happens randomly. In some of my games, the teens never get to go the prom, but on other games they do.

Week 3, Day 1. That's my time in the game. I have 3 teens, 2 twins, Summer and Rosa, and a boy who is in Military School by City Hall's request (long story).
I have their aging days set to Max due to no Prom. I am still waiting, they are about to age up and there is no Prom on the way. Summer is rebellious but yet has Honor Roll and Rosa isn't rebellious and she has Honor Roll.Is it because they caused to much trouble? Is that a bug?
I am confused.
