Post Possible gossip mod?
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, I'm not allowed to ask about this for whatever reason, etc. etc. but I just wanted to put this idea out there. :nod:

The Gossip interaction...I always thought it had potential to be SUPER funny, but instead the game gives us boring stuff like “Did you hear that so-and-so is filthy rich? I never would have guessed!” or hearing that some husband and wife have been flirting.

I think that a mod that makes the stuff that pops up in the Gossip interaction more hilarious and/or scandalous would be AWESOME. It would bring a lot more laughs to the game and be a whole lot of fun. I know that interaction is designed to let you know what's going on in town, but getting some blatantly fake, ridiculous gossip mixed in with the "normal" stuff would be a treat for me, not going to lie.

I run two blogs for my two themed Sims neighborhoods, so gossip from a mod like this would be very funny for the people who follow my blogs, not to mention hilarious in general, especially if it added quite a lot of dialogue!

Is such a mod possible, though? I’m surprised one hasn’t been made yet! I'd make one myself, but I know next to nothing about scripting and it would probably turn out awful. I'm a writer, so writing several pieces of fake gossip wouldn't be too hard, but when it got down to the scripting...don't think I could do that too well. :cry:

Any opinions?

Hello, and welcome to the forum!

I freaking love this idea :D It would be much funnier.

If I'm not mistaken... NRaas story mods do somthing like that, don't they? I'm not positive, but it is certaintly possible. I just know that a certain NRaas story mod adds personalities to the neighborhood, and I think it ties into the Gossip interaction, aswell as displaying the adventures of some of the characters & neighborhood interaction.

Am I just crazy, everyone else?

Hello to you too! I'm super shy, so who knows how much posting I'll do, but I really really REALLY want to make a mod like this a reality. :shy:

Hmm...I don't remember it actually tying into the Gossip mod! I do so love the Story Progression mod, personalities and all, but I think it would be AWESOME if the gossip was hilariously absurd. Same goes for the Share Secret interaction.

Off the top of my head, things like:

"I heard <sim name> and <sim name> sneak off to the graveyard every night to 'sing to the ghosts!' They must be nuts..."

"I had a dream that <sim name> and <sim name> fought to the death over their love for me."

"I heard that <sim name> puts curlers into their armpit hair!"

"I heard that <sim name> took a bit too much of their medicine, stripped naked, and jumped into the fountain at the park. I wish I was there..."

those are really dumb but if I had time to think I could come up with some funny stuff, I'm sure! :smile:

If someone knew how and was willing to script this mod, my friends and I would write out all the fake gossip for them and let them do the rest. :love:

There is some silly stuff that comes up for gossip already.
I think I once got "have you heard that said sim is possibly an alien?"
Just saying :smile:

But I agree The gossip should be more scandalous ;)
