I have now turned it off. I'm not really fond of the game deleting my families at random because single males keep asexually popping out kids. I am perfectly capable of keeping the neighborhood populated & interesting without the story progression effing everything up. I turned it off and I'm keeping it off.

It's quite an idiotic feature. The game will move in random families, decide that the neighborhood is too big, and then delete families you made. Idiotic.

I'm keeping it off forever.

What I thought was weird was when a married woman had a baby that had no father. She never even had a "lover" or anything, and her husband wasn't the father either.

I haven't experienced the other stuff yet (I only have one family!) but now that you guys mention it, I'm a bit concerned!

Are you sure it's not just a glitch?

It's even worse when random single males have babies with no mothers. Why did EA think that we'd like this feature? It should be default off.

It's not a glitch, because the newspaper will tell me about it. "So-and-so moved away, making some sims happy, some sims sad, and some sims going 'who'?"

Perhaps, it is a glitch, and will be fixed with the patch?

That really stinks if not.
What if I am making a story, or what if someone is making a video..
wants to come back to it, or has a Chapter 2 to work on?

Our Sims just randomly get deleted, and we lose our story characters?
That doesn't make sense.

Yeah, until you're families have kids and the game decides that the hood is too big again.

I will decide when my neighborhood is to big and I will decide what families will get the boot. Not the game.

You would think that if the game had to make a decision like that, it'd kick out non-played families rather than frequently-played ones.

This happened to me also, I had a family of 2 sims in a custom house I made. I wound up splitting them up and moving them into separate houses. Come back later and the female is gone and the male is back in my custom house and has a child all of a sudden with no mother.

Story progression is fail.

Wow. Atleast they could've made an in-game Orphanage or something to make it seem logical.
