Alrighty! So I removed ALL of my mods/CC except for the Nraas mods, went into my game, switched to a different family in the same neighborhood, and straight away, they were attracted to each other! I switched back to my main family - that I'm having attraction issues with, and they're finally attracted to each other! Yay! So what exactly does this mean? I'm assuming this means I have a mod that's interfering with the attraction system. I've had a look through them again, and I still can't figure out which one it would be. By chance do you know which sort of mods out there - particularly from modthesims.org - would cause this sort of issue?

I really appreciate all of your help and patience with this! Thank you so much! :)

I finally found it! I have the Purity Attraction mod from modthesims.org - I must have downloaded this so that my faithful sims couple wouldn't be attracted to any other sims, not knowing that they wouldn't be attracted to each other as well. Anyway, I'm going to delete it, but would you happen to know if there's a way to do this with the Nraas mods - to make it so this particular couple is only attracted to each other?

Thank you so much! :)

Aha. The mod you found that you had is actually a variant of the Retuned Attraction System I linked to a couple of responses ago and from the same MTS page.

This tuning is a variant of the Variety version above, in which the 'Faithful' and 'Eternally Faithful' moodlets give a -200 hit to the attraction score. The intention of this is to stop sims who are ostensibly faithful to their partners from being attracted to others.

Yep, that would be the one. Though of course the scores you were getting on that couple couldn't have been what the developer had in mind. Unless they are trying to say that faithful sims aren't attracted to anyone at all, including each other, but that seems far fetched.

The answer to your question though as to whether NRaas mods can accomplish this properly is probably not, though I will defer to others reading this if they know a way. I for one do not mind if my Eternally Faithful sims are attracted to others, though in a more platonic way. The important thing (to me) is that they do not act on such attractions except in friendly, non-romantic ways and for the most part they do not do so. Instead, they just seem to enjoy being in the company of other sims whom they like. Occasionally I will see another sim try to flirt with them, not the other way around, but I just shut that kind of thing down by cancelling out the responses before anything that probably wasn't going to happen anyway gets a chance to. :)

Well, I suppose it doesn't matter then! It's only natural that my sims will be attracted to others, and others to them. I'm just glad to see that they're finally attracted to each other! Yay! I keep my autonomy level off so I'm not at all worried that my sims would actively be unfaithful or anything like that, so I'm just going to leave things as they are.

Thank you so much for all of your help! This is a wonderful community! :)

I don't know for certain that this will work, but perhaps it's worth a try as long as you don't mind adding the SP relationship module and activating the link between SP and woohooer. Go into Sim Options for both sims and set the following to 0.

Flirt: Affair Adultery Chance
Defines a percent base chance of this sim performing a flirt scenario with another sim not their partner
This value is adjusted by trait-scoring.
Note: This only affects affairs generated by this mod. Autonomous flirt interactions performed by the sims themselves are unaffected.
If you have Phase Ten of Woohooer installed, that mod will read this option and stop any romantic interactions, autonomous and user-directed, between sims partnered with a different sim
Default: 10
Hidden By: "Romance: Allow" = False
Module: Relationship StoryProgression

Flirt: Affair Liaison Chance
Defines a percent base chance of this sim performing a flirt scenario with a partnered sim
This value is adjusted by trait-scoring.
Note: This only affects affairs generated by this mod. Autonomous flirt interactions performed by the sims themselves are unaffected.
If you have Phase Ten of Woohooer installed, that mod will read this option and stop any romantic interactions, autonomous and user-directed, between sims partnered with a different sim
Default: 10
Hidden By: "Romance: Allow" = False
Module: Relationship StoryProgression

As I said, it does need the link between woohooer and SP to be activated and I know a lot of people don't like to do that because (I think) travelling can break it, but if your sims don't travel it might not be an issue?

@CMThomas - You are very welcome and yes, it is. :)

@kimlupai - Yes, but those scenarios concern sims' behavior with respect to the flirt scenarios specifically being generated by SP. Shutting those down, which is not a bad thing but I only do so if/when I see them applied in situations where I certainly don't want them, wouldn't stop sims from being attracted to each other.
