Sims 4 Incest Bug makes characters date their fathers

SIMS 4 introduced a bug in the latest patch that causes Sims to kiss and/or date family members.

The latest expansion pack, High School Years, has added a number of features to the base game.

However, EA has also included some of the features from the expansion pack in the main game.

One is that players can now enable an option that will grow their Sims’ body hair, which you can then shave or groom.

The other is the introduction of the “Want and Fears” system, which allows players to keep their Sims happy.

Fulfilling some of their desires and avoiding their fears will make it easier to keep your Sims happy.

However, an error has occurred in the Wants and Fears system, which has unintended consequences.

One of the Sims’ common desires is to kiss or go out with their Sim crush.

However, the game decides if they have a crush based on how close the Sim is to another, and the person they are closest to is often a member of their family.

This means that Sims often express a desire to kiss or date other family members.

They are still unable to actually engage in these activities as the programming does not allow for romantic options between family members.

EA is aware of the error and is already working on a fix.

A member of EA’s live operations team addressed the issues on Twitter.

He said: “I just wanted to acknowledge that ‘wanting’ with a family member is something we know we’ve reproduced ourselves, we’re working on.

“We’re trying to fix it as soon as possible, thanks for all the bug reports, we appreciate it. Of course, we are also working on the aging error.”

The aging error occurs when players choose either a long or short lifespan for their Sims.

However, this has the side effect of instantly aging all other Sims in the game.

A new update should fix both problems shortly.
