347 Comments / replies (Who?) - 15 Feedback Posts, 10 Thanks Posts
7/26/21 - Updated for Cottage Living/1.77 Patch.

6/19/21 - Updated with misc. fixes and a few new features, including an optional add on package file (requires the XML Injector mod: https://scumbumbomods.com/xml-injector) that adds computer interactions, such as rant about cheating partner online and for famous sims 3-5 star celebrity sims to interact with fans. This mod is being heavily edited, restructured, and worked on so more fixes and new features to come soon . Chinese Translation included by mency1129. Thank you, mency1129!!!

11/25/2020 - Updated to Fix LE & errors in MC Command Center log

11/14/2020 - Updated with Russian translation by Origamika and Portuguese translation by melqui1. Thank you Origamika and melqui1!

11/10/2020 - Updated for 11/10/20 Patch

10/31/2020 - Fixed an LE (Last Exception) that was occurring when loading saves with the mod and the buffs for children reacting to cheating not disappearing. Please keep reporting if you encounter any more and thank you all! [/B]

10/17/2020 - Updated with Chinese Translation by mency1129. Thank you, mency1129!!!

10/16/2020 - Updated with Russian Translation by Origamika. Thank you, Origamika!!!

Update 10/2020 - In this update, there have been a number of bug fixes for all the reactions included in this mod. The biggest change is to the reactions to cheating. Sims will no longer consider flirting to be "cheating." The base game's Flirty Spouse buff will still occur (meaning the sim's spouse will still react), but they will no longer declare their partners as cheaters when flirting. The Flirty sim's children will have new reactions if they see their parents flirting with other sims.

Also included, Portuguese Brazil translation by melqui1. Thank you, melqui1! (Working on learning the Sims 4 Translater so that translations can remain even as the mod updates)

Updated on 8/7/20 with Russian Translation Provided by Origamika. Thank you, Origamika!

Updates for 8/4/20:

- Fixes for Eco Lifestyle Patch Updates
- The feature for children reacting to their parent's cheating has been added back to the mod
- Autonomy for the confess to cheating interaction has been disabled by default since some users were experiencing an issue with the interaction being spammed repeatedly. A toggle has been added to the Realistic Reactions menu to turn on autonomy for Confess to Cheating.
- Fixes for various bugs

7/8/20: Updated with Russian Translation by Origamika and Chinese Translation by MMCCC

Updates for 7/1/20:

- Some coding used for testing was causing Sims to show "Cheated With" relationship, even if they have been monogamous. This has been corrected.

- Added toggles under the Realistic Reactions Menu to "Disable Flirty Spouse Cheating Reactions". With this option, the sims will still get the default game's flirty spouse buff, but will not get this mod's cheating buffs/interactions. Married/Partnered Sims will have to woohoo with others to be considered cheating

- When clicking on a Sim's partner/spouse/significant other, there is now an option under the Realistic Reactions Menu to "Remove Cheating Relationships With This Sim". This will remove the Cheated With and Unfaithful relationship bits.

Currently being worked on:
Adding autonomy and autonomy toggles
Options to turn on/off different parts of the mod you wish to use
Traits affecting reactions
New modules for the mod

The Realistic Reactions Mod:
The Realistic Reactions Mod for The Sims 4 is designed to overhaul how sims react to situations in the game. Currently, there are three categories included in this mod:

1. Cheating Overhaul
2. Overhaul to how Sims react when seeing family members fighting with one another
3. Sims reacting to teen pregnancy (if mods are installed to allow teens to get pregnant)


Due to the intensity of moodlets/buffs, you may wish to use with mods that disable emotional deaths. Previously, this mod was split into three individual modules. This has been cleaned up to now include one zip file containing one package and one script file, both of which should go in your Mods folder.


Please delete all previous Realistic Reactions files before installing this version! Due to updates in Mod Constructor, this version of the mod was completely rebuilt from the ground up, so all buffs from the previous version will be removed. Also, the current version is only available in English.


Changes made in the 6/23/20 Update:
- Combined all modules into one
- Added Toggles to turn on/off certain modules in the Realistic Reactions menu
- Update to fix LE's that were occurring from different aspects of the mod
- Autonomy for Confess to Cheating has been completely turned off. Sims will only confess if you select for Sims to do so
- Fixed accuracy so Sims should now only get cheating moodlets if they actually cheat
- New Interactions. For now, these do not have a toggle, but the next update will allow you to turn these interactions off if they do not want them in your game. The new interactions include a special menu for conversing with mixologists at the bar (similar to the one in The Sims 3), the ability to ask the parents of your bf/gf for their hand in marriage, and the ability for Sims with children to brag about them.
- The feature for children reacting to their parent's cheating is being perfected and has been removed (this will be added back in next update)

As always, this mod is being worked on and revised so thank you to everyone that has let error reports and mod suggestions in the comments!

Great idea; I've downloaded and will be using it, but I have one question, do you have any plans to expand your mod to include the unmarried sims who are in a love or soul mate relationship? I've seen so much cheating going on with sims who have an established love relationship with another sim and it's kind of infuriating to see them get away with it. I have been longing to see guilty sims finally getting caught as a result of poor decision making. Thank you for sharing this!

Hello! Yes, I'm definitely going to expand it to unmarried sims. A lot of options will be coming soon in an update (including menus to toggle options for individual sims as well )

Much needed

You know what bugs me the most?! If someone else flirt with your sim's spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend etc they still get angry with them even if they refused the flirt, and not with the sim who flirted with them, and there is no way to solve it, like telling the spouse it was the other sim fault and remove the moodlets from them.

Does the Forgive for Cheating is only available if the married couples never had a fight from "Fight for Cheating" interaction? My sims was going to forgive her spouse but I don't see the option under the Friendly menu.

Also to point out that, The Angry buff for cheated spouse expired prematurely without the sim doing anything calm him/herself down. The Embarrased Moodlet for the cheater is fine though. Other than that I love this mod it makes sims less robotic with their reaction. Though I hope you can make the new interaction autonomous depending on both parties traits. Such as automatically fight if the cheated spouse has mean or evil trait.

That's a great idea! Working on updates now, so will investigate how to make this work.

loot the angry flirty spouse buff for removal, on removal of the buff, add a loot to re-add it... that could be a way.

One question, why I can't find "Convince That Your Cheating Is Their Fault" interaction? I've tried so many methods, even removing all other mods I have.

Hello. Currently, that interaction is set as to appear for the cheater under mean interactions when clicking on their spouse that they cheated on (after the person cheats and receives the "Caught Cheating" moodlet). If that buff is removed either by it expiring or their spouse forgiving them, the interaction goes away. Can you try it with having the desired sim cheat and see if it appears under the mean category?
