1. I think it sucks you cannot increase your social motive when your alone at your lot (especally that isn't money/skill dedicated one), as you need to moderate the lot and wait for visitors to arrive. Potential Solution? Potential Solution: when talking in pm with a certain person, you should have your social increase. Even If they're long distances (i.e. in another lot) away from you. Everytime the person you pm replies back, your social increase gets double (the code will keep track of it). Same goes everytime you reply to that person, his/her social gets doubled. Reasons: 1. This would make pm more useful and add immersion logic that your sim gains fun from talking. 2. Encourage people to talk via chat, when for example while focusing on honing their skills and making money. 2. You cannot interact with other player's sim long distances. Potential Solution: Player A makes a call through a phone on his lot to Player B (they must be friends!). The telephone rings on Players B lot. She, Player B, answers the phone. Now these two players can use the following interactions: Greet Friendly: Talk to Whisper .... Romance: Flirt. ... Mean: Insult End the call: "See you later" [friends] "No, you hang-up!" [partners] "Go to hell!" [enemies] "Farewell" [Acquaintances] Prank call: makes a call to a random lot, opens up a text-box to write immature stuff and ect.
