Yep, kinda noticed this was funny when playing the little baby plantsim in Riverblossom. Dad taught her and they played together, but I wasn't sure if the wish was fulfilled. I'm restarting so I'll definitely get to test that again.

I just always took it as a want of the baby saying it wants attention. You aren't teaching it to play peekaboo. You are playing with it and it always wants to be played with.

Yes, there's no teaching involved, but the want is never, ever fulfilled. Always wanting to be played with should mean the want behaves like a "be tickled" or "be played with" want, where once it's fulfilled, it simply scrolls back on.

Servos are robots..but not. In ways they are just Sims wearing a robot costume. I just discovered they can die, and leave a tombstone! Maxis managed to make them not need food or sleep, but !!!!! made them so unhappy if there are messes everywhere (which is their REASON FOR EXSTING!) they will go nuts. I can see "running amuck" as a machine breaking, but doing it because their are messes to clean?! And what's with them needing companionship? So I'm off to find the (probably nonexistent) mods to make them act like robots!

I feel like Servos are robots kind of like WALL-E, which is why they crave companionship. He has his pet cockroach and eventually his romance with EVE. I suppose in a lot of ways he doesn't act "like a robot," but that's part of his charm. The massive garbage dump he lived in didn't seem to bother him, though, he just diligently worked every day to clean it. I feel like maybe that's how a Servo should behave, but of course you don't have to agree. Also, I've never really played with Servos much, so I'm probably not the best judge of how they do or should behave.

I love Servos, I make them look like a Regular Sim.

I recommend several Mods to make playing with them easier:
Cyjon has CJ-NoRobotSneezing.package
on MTS Dolphin26 has WaterproofServos.package

SW-Servo-Charging-Station.package this is an object that recharges a Servo when the Servo uses it. It is available from the link in Ihatethemanadatoryregister's signature.

Mike 1102 has RobotsNeverBreak, but he only had it in is his OneDrive and had not made it available on MTS, I have asked him to make it available in a PM, hopefully he will answer me and then upload it.

Thunderstorms. The odd one in summer would be fine, but three or four a day, every day, in any season but winter, gets seriously annoying!

I sometimes hate playing university because like, i want to be able to invite people inside, not just have them waltz into my home when they feel like it.
Like, does people even do this in real life? I just end up closing the doors...but still... special the cow guy is driving me crazy.
And lets remember these sims in university just use whatever they want. hungry? goes into the fridge and stuff face and they NEVER clean up after themselves.

I build small houses *^*

It's not a good advertisement for American universities, that's for sure! But if you get the Visitor Controller, you can ban them. The only Uni NPC I allow is the coach, because he/she has saved quite a few Sims from Academic Probation by forcing them to get that Body skill point in the nick of time.

Now, if I weren't so severely techno-challenged, I could have got the words 'Visitor Controller' to serve as a link, but I'll just have to do it this way: http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=17.0

When your toddlers are really tired AND really hungry, and you need to feed the dumb little $&#*ers a bottle before they go to bed or pass out, but they keep playing with the $&#* activity table and you can't, for some reason, get a bottle out of the fridge while they are doing this, but when you cancel their play it takes them half an hour to stop, and then they immediately go right back to the activity table because you had it on fast speed waiting for them to stop playing, and now you've missed the window to get a bottle out of the fridge AGAIN

Seriously wtf.

Yeah...that activity table is way too addictive. Maybe the crayons aren't wax...

My after school visitors usually end up playing on their own while whomever invited them over ignores them completely. Then I lose track of them totally and am surprised that they're still there when they say, it's late and I have to go.

Not so that it makes me go Grrrr, but still makes me wonder thinking about this.
A sim can call emergency on the phone when there is a fire in their home. Same for a break in. Though that same sim would probably get fined for a fake call, if another member of their household would collapse and die on the floor...

There's so little time for the kids to play before they leave, that this is the one situation where I use Macrotastics to make them socialize so they will become friends. Sometimes, I want my sims to be able to marry childhood friends/sweethearts when they grow up. So I'll make sure they make friends with any townies they bring home from school. If I like one as a match, then I'll have the townie age up along with my playable sim. Even sometimes I will do this if there's an especially appealing child sim that I want to have remain best friends with my playable sim. They can be roomies in college and everything!

I keep having to add more child townies when I do this but that's ok :D

I have a hack that lets children stay later. Mine weren't going home until 2am. XD Now that makes me think. I haven't seen parents pick up their kids for ages; not even at 2am. Must be the hack causing neglectful sim parents who don't wonder where their child is at 2am lol.

So you decided to throw a big wedding party. You visit all your playables first, make sure everyone has a nice formal outfit and hair do. You set up the backyard, hire a bartender (why can't you hire a DJ, too, btw?), and set up the cake and buffet table. Guest arrive, they start chatting and the party goes to Not So Bad. Then you start the ceremony and the game crashes.

Pet peeve: Sims don't turn off their computer after they don't intend to use for a day. Additionally, when I forget to toggle ceiling right before the cinematic. And speaking of special moments of these, why can't I screenshot or record these clips?

When you want to raise your Sim's skills and hobby points by doing certain activities, but can't because said Sim's fun is maxed out and they, for whatever reason, refuse to do said tasks, because apparently "I'm having too much fun to do that fun thing!". It's almost like the Fun need is not something you need to prevent from getting too low like literally every other need, but rather something you need to prevent from getting too high.

I've recently been having this issue with a YA sim. She needs a body skill point for her major, but even though Music & Dance is her OTH, she refuses to dance for more than a few seconds before stopping. I do have a mod in that makes dancing raise body skill. It's not that she's too tired/sweaty/hungry or anything like that. She's just, as you said, apparently having too much fun.
