Another day, another whale of fail:
Spontaneous recombustion – is this part of their ‘weirder stories’?
But as Munchie885 said, so much for the smarter Simmies part:
We’d have been impressed by EasyToRead’s summary, had it not been recycled from Sims 3.
And according to Writin_Reg, she’s lost more Simmies to fires in Sims 3 than in any other version:
Erm, testingcheatsenabled true/moveobjects on and move the Simmie away manually anyone?
It’s atypical of EA that they create a fix adding something else into the mix (sprinklers), rather than fixing it properly in the first place (correcting the coding so Simmies don’t simply stand around wanting to be fried). As Writin_Reg is admitting, she has her Simmies doing the same cure that worked in Sims 3 (sending them to the showers – erm, that wasn’t supposed to sound that sinister!) – hardly progress, is it?
As MsPhy said, what’s the point of a sprinkler system which only goes off when objects are on fire but let’s Simmies burn happily away? Stupid, EA, stupid. Like CrackFox, we wonder why they didn’t tone down the fire risks if they were getting rid of fire fighters in the first place.
Of course, there is the ‘extinguish self’ option – getting it to work however…. which is where we came in.
