Poor bastard of a romance sim

Well, after I first installed and started up Nightlife (and discovered
that the first sim I played really likes stinky women in their
underwear), I decided I wanted to send my most prolific romance sim on
the prowl to try it out. I sent him downtown in the hopes that he'd
find a newly created downtownie who he could add to his conquest list,
which currently stands at sixteen (all legitimate, hack-free conquests
too!).

Well, he didn't find a downtownie, but he did find a woman who he was
quite fond of but with whom he hadn't done anything. So he asked her
out on a date and they got busy.

While this was happening, the other sims were making asses of
themselves, throwing water balloons around and just generally being
pains in the ass to one another, and that's why I didn't notice at
first the inordinate number of sims just standing around looping the
embarrassment animation, with double minus signs spamming constantly.
After they had dinner and went into the photo booth for a shoot, that's
when I noticed that the embarrassment seemed to be directed at our fair
protagonist and his date. They got out of the photo booth, and
immediately two sims came at them, poking them and shouting at them.

That's when I realized, a date counts as a *constant romantic
interaction* and the sims who were upset with my sim were relatives of
the women he had already "conquested". Since about ten of his sixteen
lovers were sims from my families and not townies, there wasn't a
single downtown lot he could go where he and his date wouldn't face the
constant barrage of the town's consternation.

So, our protagonist went to the bathroom, and his date got into a fight
with the father of one of his lovers. Things were no better for our
protagonist, as the brother of another of his lovers followed him into
the bathroom and blocked his exit from the toilet stall. It ended in a
stalemate that lasted two real life minutes, before the brother gave up
and walked away. By then, the date was over and she had had a good
time, fights nowithstanding. I suspect it would have been better had
he not spent the last half of it locked in the toilet.

So sadly, I've discovered that my romance sims really need to restrict
their dates to their residences, and the only sims I'll have going on
dates downtown are the married and/or monogamous ones, those whose
romantic relationships are restricted to university townies, or
virgins. It's more than a little disappointing, since only about 6 of
my 210 playable sims fit that description.

You are so right. I have a romance Sim whose lifetime want is to have 20
simultaneous lovers. So I thought great! Nightlife should make it a snap!
Wrong. On his first date one of his loves stumbled into the club. Instant
rage. She kept coming to his house and stealing newspapers and knocking
over garbage cans. That happened twice. So I thought, only date at home.
But that didn't work either! His new love came by while he and his date
were outside, and bam! Another hater. I worked hard, and got the three
loves back in his harem. But I have to be very careful now with dates.
Must make sure no service Sims are around (he has a thing for female
gardeners, he has collected three! Also two maids!) and only date indoors.
I hope if they stop by and I don't greet them, they can't bust him!

I have the "no jealousy at all" hack from MTS2. It works fine with
Nightlife! Yay! I tried playing without it (or any other hacks other than
objects).. using Carrigon's Golden Spider object (kinf of a boolprop for the
impaired ;-) .. and had everyone on the lot loving this Romance Girl Sim..
but as soon as she flirted with one Sim.. the rest became enraged.. I had
one chick slapping the heck out of her for 10 real minutes.. a -100 on the
relationship meter! The Social Bunny made an appearance. I had to stop
playing after i reused the Spider to reset everyone back to "love" and go
grab that hack out of my backup folder.

Now i just threw a party for 2 Family Sims that are married and she's
preggo.. she kissed all the guests and he woohoo'd 1 guy and 1 gal in the
hot tub.. and then the happy couple swapped spit as the party ended (a roof
raiser ;-)

I love these kinds of hacks!

Suddenly Beluah Kinsman's furious reaction to Kaylynn Langerak Kinsman's
date makes sense... I failed to realise that Kaylynn is married to Beluah's
half brother (or that Beluah would care). I sat here trying to puzzle out
how or when Beluah would have developed a romantic interest in Kaylynn that
could have caused her to go off the deep end (-100's all round, multiple
fist fights and flaming hatred were my clues that she was unhappy but none
of them told me why). Who knew that she was that attached to her
much-younger half brother?!

It isn't that, I think. The half-brother is angry on his brothers'
behalf.
