Woohooer Glitch - This is Appalling! :)

Post by igazor » October 21st, 2018, 10:32 pm

Recently I was playing a short stint as a well-known Bridgeport premade because I didn't like where the game was taking him. Rafael is Richie's younger brother for those not familiar, I did give him a makeover so you might not recognize him by his thumbnail.

Anyway, divorced from his wife and now living with one of his young kids and his brother's family for a while, the poor guy looked lonely. I couldn't very well have him do up a computer dating profile as I take it his Technophobe trait would have made that a disaster so I sent him to the Day Spa to use the Matchmaker service, a feature I almost never use.

I guess I don't mind that the Matchmaker service has branched out and is trying to win over members of other species as customers now. Maybe it always did and I never noticed. I would hate to think what happens if they are told to call up their favored choices on their own and chat after being interviewed if they lack the dexterity to manage a telephone dial or keypad.

But Irving is a baby! Well, a puppy but in any event not ready for such adult forms of socialization. I was shocked, appalled, gasped and clutched my pearls in horror when I saw this (when I finished laughing :)). How could such a thing be allowed to happen? Or is this form of marketing all a perfectly innocent way of paying tons of Simoleons to find another puppy in town for ours to play with?

I went with the Rafael option on that menu since that is who I had choosing the service in the first place and was relieved to see that all of his potential matches were of an appropriate age and none of them, except maybe the occasional werewolf, were canine. Phew.

I crack up every time I read this!

The reason I keep coming back to it is that I'm looking for info on the matchmaker. What does Type stand for? I'm guessing that YSH is young single human, but I read somewhere else that H is for horse. (Would Irving have found D recommendations?) I'm pretty sure that's not right. The only other species I'm playing with is vampire, and there were no Vs in the recommendation list.

While searching, I found a 2-yr-old post that said there was a setting:
City Hall/Computer > NRaas > Woohooer >General >
... Matchmaker Only Lists Residents = True

I don't see anything like that. Was that something that was removed?

Thanks!

Vampires are not a species their an occult life state.
You need the Woohooer Scoring module for to have the option Matchmaker Only Lists Residents.

I'm glad this thread got resurrected because it never did get any developer attention probably due to its timing so soon after our move to this site. But the puppy love pun, perhaps we could have done without. (groans and smiles at the same time) :P

Another module, huh? {{sigh}} I resisted getting one for a long time. I now have more than 20 NRaas mods. I'm still learning my way around in them. I may as well throw in another one. ;)

So, do you know what the matchmaker's types are? All of the 2-3 letter types ended in H. Will I see V if the guy's vampire brother tries it? Do they only suggest matches from the same occult life state? If there were 3 letters, the middle was always S. I'm guessing it's for single, and anyone without the S is in some kind of relationship.

The H is for homeless whereas residents will only have T,YA,A or E.

OH! I did finally figure out that my first choice was homeless, but I didn't make the connection to the H. That means the current girl is also homeless. I don't think I would have figured that out by myself. Thank you!

Well could've had the experience this cat had after trying the Matchmaking Service.

This actually isn't a bug per-say. It's coded to work on pets. The only issue is the pets that you can find matches for aren't age checked. I suspect though that it wouldn't find any matches because matches are age checked.
