is so much talk about how DNA will secure a Sim's physical traits to be
passed on to the children, but did you know that your child might already
inherit your personality? Scientists report recent changes!
as long as any living Sim can remember, a sim baby have basically inherited
its skin colour from its parents. That's all. Looks were not really resembling
its parents, Eye colour, hair colour, nose size, skin shape etc. were more
or less random. We didn't really questioning why it was like that, most
of us would not know that before those Aliens stole our dimension (ref
Simmish Prophecy), a Sim's physiques was passed on to his or her children.
A random personality
how about personality? Would two very nice sims have only nice children?
Or how about two very active sims, or two very shy sims? In our recent
past there was no specific indication to any obvious heritage when it comes
to a baby's personality. After those Aliens changed our existence, new
sims got their own random personality, a blessing to some while others
easy going sims might have wished their children to become like them.
I started my baby research some years ago, Simmerville was a very small
hood with only 10 families and no organized transport connecting us to
any specific locations near by. Back then I gathered detailed reports about
each child that was born in the hood. I found that there was no significant
connection between a child's personality and its parents. Well, most children
could of course have a few traits similar to one of its parents, but the
random order was just as common.
A recent change!
have always done research on our genes, DNA and similarity between children
and parents. There was registered enough cases to see that recently there
was another change! We do not know for sure when this happened, but most
likely it's a change that can be connected with either Old Town or Magic
of this I did a few new analysis on a couple children that were born in
Simmerville lately and after Magic Town became so popular. And what I found
was very interesting and pleasing: A child's personality traits are once
again inherited from its parents!
simplify things, let's say that each Sim's personality trait is set on
a scale from 0 to 10. If mother is active=4 and father is active=7 then
their child will be active 4, 5, 6 or 7. If mother is nice=8 and
father is nice=10 their children will all be nice 8, 9 or 10.
only exception is how playful the child is, because in most cases a child
will be more playful than its parents.
don't know what caused this to happen or when it happened. One thing is
for sure, and that is that these changes do confirm parts of the Simmish
Prophecy. Some scientists think that the Aliens managed to return a little
slice of our future before they were cut off by the military operation
earlier this year.
might be correct, most scientists expects the great changes to take place
