How long do I have to wait before I can adopt again?
« on: November 07, 2011, 10:55:46 AM »
Hi - Short story long, the wife had twins just as a fire broke out, and then the fireman got stuck, while the toddler was screaming and the teenager was having a mood swing...  End result, my doggies were taken away by the social worker for neglect!  I blame it on my lack of memory and game glitches preventing me from moving fast enough.   >:(

Now I'm trying to adopt again and it's saying I have to wait "quite a while".  Does anyone know how long that is?  I don't particularly want to deal with charming a stray into my fold and it's been *days*.

Does your Sim have a debuff in relation to this?  If so, it probably has a timer on it.  Otherwise, I don't know.

You can always add two new dogs via Edit Town to the household.  Just go into CAS and make the two dogs you want then merge with your household.

Dellena: Do you mean a moodlet?  I don't see one.  The probation period makes sense to me as a game-play thing, but I'm pretty sure it's been at least three days since the event and I'm still turned away for having a record when I try to do it by phone.

I didn't think about trying to add via town edit - That should work.  Still, I don't like having a record - I'd like to know the rules.

Debuff is a term in The Sims Medieval, and a general term in games like RP's - it's a negative moodlet. Buff is a positive moodlet.

In Ambitions, if you're caught detonating often, you'll be stopped from blowing stuff up for a week. Maybe that's how long you need to wait?

When a child is removed from the home (I've had this happen before..thanks bugged babysitters!), the wait is 7 days if I remember correctly.

Thanks everyone - It sounds like 7 days is a good bet and I don't think I've gone quite that long.  I'll report back if I can pin down the actual amount for future readers.
