The original catch all. General game help, banter, things you should probably put in the correct forum, This is the place.

I use scan room when I want to see who my sim finds most attractive between a number of available partners. My sim has either got a few love interests and/or knows the other sims really well (good friends +). Also, if I want a true reading of scan room, I make sure the target sims all have the same strength of relationship (on the bar) before doing a scan room. That way I feel the score is more accurate. Then he/she can zero in on the highest rated sim.  There has been times when I want my sim to be with a certain other sim, but  the scan room score shows he/she has other ideas, so I usually go with their choice, not mine. :)

Taking attraction scores in that direction will be the point of NRaas Chemistry, a mod that is still in its early stages of development and not ready for use yet.
That sounds like a cool mod.
I promise I'm not that shallow either and often let sims be with whomever, but I do like a certain amount of "pretty" couples in my games.

It would also be nice to have some kind of award or trait where a sim is truly faithful too. It's far too easy to get a sim to cheat on their spouses and partners. Someone should create an "always faithful" trait or Lifetime Happiness award so at least some sims would never actually cheat on or leave their partners. I have tried the 'no jealousy" and other traits that are supposed to help, but you can still just walk up and ask a sim to leave their partner and many times they will without hesitation, even if they have a 100% liking gate with that sim. I did that by accident once with a mother/daughter and mom had 100% liking gate with her hubby and both even had the faithful moodlet and she dropped him at her daughters first request. LOL   Seems kind of silly to me and damned if I could hook them back up easily either! I ended up exiting the game and starting at my last good save! Gotta watch that clicking too fast thing! One twitch of the mouse and you can give your sims a really bad day. haha
Besides there really are people who remain faithful, even if it may seem unlikely to some people out there. :)

My sims never cheat on their spouse. In SP I have Chance of Adultry and other settings related to relationships set to zero. Also, in Woohooer I have Romance set to spouse. Not in game at the moment so not sure of all the settings, but in Woohooer there are ways to set woohoo and try for baby to spouse only. I also have Breakup for married couples set to zero. Other settings allow partnered (steady) sims to cheat. I figured that until married, sims have the right to change their mind. :)

There is just so very much to try and find to set everything the way I want I honestly get confused and forget what I have set and what I do not. I don't mind some drama in my game, so I don't want all sims to never cheat, but I'd like certain families to be faithful and stay together. I was reading about some tuning mods that alter the attractiveness to other sims. I was wondering if that was something that can be done with Retuner?  Perhaps where I could set it so anyone with the eternally faithful moodlet will be unattractive to other sims? 
Sorry to the OP if this got too far off topic. But since it's about attractiveness interactions I thought it may still be on topic?  I'm not sure what the moderators will think.

Leave Tay Bayless alone! (Oh wait, I already said that...)  :D

You're fine. But you may need to think in terms of traits rather than moodlets. My Family Oriented sims would never cheat on their partners or flirt with anyone else even if I left them to their own devices without SP Caste protection. There could be more to it than just that trait, though and of course it's not suitable for every sim -- you shouldn't have to want lots of kids in order to want to be a faithful and devoted partner. Unflirty might work too but that has too many negatives, way too many.

It's an interesting question. I like to think that the happy couples I have in town, the ones I never play and who have no Rotational Caste protection, stay faithful and together with their long-term partners because they want to, not because of restrictions I've placed on them. Then again, I may be totally delusional (but I kind of like it that way).

Ah yes, this gem. Gosh it's been 9 months since I've done any modding having been dedicated to working on this site. Do I even remember how to? :P

...I honestly get confused and forget what I have set and what I do not.

I had the same problem, many years ago and that was when I decided to start keeping a record of every setting I'd changed (and what the default setting was) in a Notepad file. That then led to me uploading all my settings to tumblr to share with others and it also serves as a backup in case my hard drive ever dies. That's not very likely now as I have an SSD but it's still possible.

It makes it so much easier to search, previously within the file or now on my tumblr site, for a setting I think I may have changed, to find out whether I have or not and what I changed it to. With my goldfish memory, there's no way I can remember lol! ;-)

That is a decent score for an RI couple, yes. It will likely increase over time if they progress their relationship forward and even more so again if KamaSimtra is in play, though the latter is not required.

I tweaked theBayless family a bit, actually I tweak all the townies in all the towns a bit to get more diverse features, it is something I do with my daughter and we have a blast, tweaking the sims and rebuilding the towns. I have expanded, fixed versions of a lot of the EA towns and we are working our way through them, well we will be again once we get the computers fixed.
