WooHoo Wellness & Pregnancy Overhaul, module #4

Description of Paternity testing – related features

———————– How the system works ———————–

Requirements for the paternity test system to trigger

– Sims must WooHoo / try for baby after the mod is installed. Preexisting pregnancies can’t be recognized.
– Pregnancy triggered through MCCC cheats and such will not trigger it.
– If you use WW interactions or MCCC cheats to start a pregnancy, you must mark Sims as ‘WooHoo’d With’ if you want the paternity system to trigger normally at pregnancy discovery. Do so by clicking on another Sim and going to ‘Actions’ then ‘WooHoo Wellness Settings’.

If a pregnant Sim WooHoo’d with only one other recently:
  • They do not doubt who the father is. Immediately upon discovering pregnancy, the real father will be marked as such.
  • They can, if they want, lie to the father to tell them they’re not actually the father.
  • Fathers can doubt about whom fathered the child and express those doubts. They can request a paternity test.
  • If the Sim’s Official partner is not the dad and was not WooHoo’d with anytime recent, upon the pregnancy being discovered, they will know they were cheated on.
If a pregnant Sim recently WooHoo’d with several who can impregnate:

They will doubt who is the father, they can’t know for sure! 
– They can “Admit to Not Knowing Who is The Father”, which is also a confession to having cheated of course – if cheating applies (ie if not in a non-exclusive relationship).
– They can go to a Psychic. After that, they can lie or tell the truth to Sims they woohoo’d with recently.

What lovers of the pregnant Sim can do, prior to knowing for sure

– Sims who can impregnate can question being the father of a love interest’s child if they WooHoo’d together soon before the pregnancy happened. This will lead the Sim questioned to immediatly say they don’t know if they don’t. If they do know, it will lead them to either tell the truth or lie.

– Sims who can impregnate can also request to do a paternity test no matter what.

———————– Notes on Test Results ———————–

Finding Out by Elimination Processes
  • The game ALWAYS knows how exactly is the dad. My mod does not make it up, but grab that info from the game. Everything else in the system is added code by me.
  • If there are only 2 possible dads, and the one tested with is the real one, the other one will automatically be marked as not the father, because by this point by elimination the Sim obviously knows who it is, and can be lied to or told the truth.
  • If there are only 2 possible dads, and the one tested with is not the real one, the other one will automatically be marked as the father, also as logic dictates, and can be lied to or told the truth.
  • If there are 3+ possible dads and the one tested with / about is the real dad, all others will be marked as not the dad. If the one tested with is not the real dad, he’ll be marked as not the dad, but since there’s still 2+ possibilities, the Sim still doesn’t know who is the real dad.
  • When a Sim figures out who fathered their child, be it by elimination or by testing with the right one, they’ll get a certificate in their inventory. It’s not doing much of anything for now, I’ll add more to it later. It’s a souvenir for now.
New Possibilities After the Test
  • As mentioinned previously, once a Sim know who is the father, they can say it, trtuh or lies.
  • If the mother has already found out who is the other parent, potential fathers can’t ask to go do a test but instead will be able to ask for proof of who is the father. This will tell them the truth just like doing the test would have.
  • If a Sim is told they’re the father, or have found out they are, they and the other Sim can ask each other to “marry because of having a child together”. It might be accepted or rejected. Relationship preferences impact the result.

———————– Reactions to Finding Things Out ———————–

Different relationship configurations and pregnancy wishes give different reactions.

More Info

A fling of a night will be happy to hear they’re not the dad, but a husband certainly may not.
Therefore, Moodlets from the paternity test and some other interactions (most notably, being told that they are / are not / may not be the father) depend on whether the test is positive or negative, and on whether the relationship is: Non-Exclusive Official with a partner who wants children, Non-Exclusive official with a partner who does not want children, Non-Official, or Exclusive Official.

———————– After Discovering The Truth ———————–

Jealousy and Cheating

With this mod, sims are marked for having cheated and if the cheating is revealed, their partner also marks them as cheaters in the relationship panel. These will come into play in future updates for this mod / in my Cheating Module for contextual social interactions, which may be re-done and move into this mod instead with additions. (There is an interaction under the ‘Actions’ menu to remove that marker  from a specific Sim clicked on or from all Sims known to your current Sim if you’d like).

A Sim learning they’re not the father in an official exclusive relationship will have jealousy triggered, so if you use cheating mods that base off of that such as my Contextual Social Interactions module (and I hope Zero’s newly improved cheating mod works that way too) then you get to ‘benefit’ from that as well.

Fathers may accept or reject being fathers
They can deny being the father if told they are:
They can outright tell the other Sim that they reject the child, or accept it.

Sims can Admit Getting Another Pregnant (if they were told or know for sure they’re the dad of an extramaritally-caused pregnancy)

Interactions relating to the children

Fathers who accept the child but aren’t the biological parent will be able to till the child that they’re not biologically related. There will be more interactions!!

———– Timeframes and System Reset ————-

Long story short: The system is in place until the next pregnancy.

More Info under the Cut

The next pregnancy resets it, to the exception of  knowing they’ve been cheated on (seen in the rel panel with their partner, which will unlock interactions in the rest of pt3 of this mod) and knowing the child is not theirs / is theirs (visible in the rel panel with the child, will also unlock stuff) – beware, this one will only happen if not being the father is discovered during pregnancy (I’m adding in a way for the mother to admit later on to her child and / or partner and all this having effect).These facts remain.  

What this means: Testing and interactions can be performed during pregnancy and after birth.

There are some small procedural differences but overall it’s almost the same. Just be aware:

The moment your Sim finds out about being pregnant again with a new child, the system resets to apply to the new pregnancy.

What if a pregnancy is terminated through another Mod?

If your Sim gets a termination of pregnancy from another mod and not mine, I advise doing the following right after: go the the ‘actions’ menu, then WooHoo Wellness Settings, then click ‘Remove All Paternity Testing Markers’

———– Impact on Children & Family Dynamics ————-

This will come with the next release / next part of the mod as it’s another big piece. Additionally I’d like to tie it in with the other post-birth stuff that I want to dd in in the rest of pt3 (Sims will have fun trying to convince another to accept and love a baby when it’s not even theirs and they didn’t want a child!). So for now that’s not there, for the exception of the few things mentioned throughout this description.

———– Notes, Issues, Limitations ————-

The game spoils who’s the father at birth. Your Sim will still be clueless, but if you wanted to not know, that’s ruined. I may change that too.

  • If you have Wicked Whims: this module is compatible ONLY if ‘Native Pregnancy Override’ is OFF in WW’s settings. (You can use a cheat to ‘mark sim as woohoo’d with’ in order for them to be considered for paternity testing)
  • If you have Mc WooHoo: this module is compatible ONLY if WooHoo Risk in Mc WooHoo is set to default (which is 0).

  1. Heyy,

    I had a slight issue with the confessing to getting another sim pregnant bit, so my male sim was married got a sim pregnant. She told him and they got a paternity test, but the interaction to tell the wife never came up, the only options for her were to demand a paternity test etc? Not sure if I did something wrong, it’s a bit weird that he couldn’t say anything and she carried on being friends with the other woman lol. Think your mods are amazing though!


    1. Hi, that is quite odd, since if they did the test, all the requirements are definitely in for him to know he’s the dad and tell his wife. I’m not sure what happened there? Hopefully it is a one time weirdness. I’ve not had that issue and neither have my testers. Thanks for writing!


  2. It would be really cool if you could lie to a guy(who isn’t the birth father) saying they’re the parent of the child and elope if you have multiple relationships. Lol


    1. It’s already a thing in the mod 🙂
      Of course only one marriage is possible legally so if either is already married, then they can’t get married over it. But otherwise this exists in the mod.


  3. Okay so i deleted wicked whims out of my game. in order to have this mod work in my game will i have to download wicked whims again?


  4. Hi – so in my game, the husband cheated and got another girl pregnant. The mistress was able to tell the wife about it, but there wasn’t a reaction to the pregnancy and there isn’t an option for the husband to tell his wife about it.


      1. For the no reaction, I had the lady tell the wife that her husband got her pregnant, but the only sentiments that came up was that the wife was angry that he cheated on her. There was nothing about the pregnancy. I’ll try the lady telling the husband.


  5. I’m not getting any of the woohoo wellness interaction options. I know I’ve properly installed the mods because the fine emotion came up after the mother told the father she was pregnant. Do you know why this could be?


    1. So you are saying there is a custom pregnancy trimester moodlet showing but nothing else? The fine emotion exists in game so it is not an indication of anything. What we’re looking for is custom moodlets, menus, etc. There should be a loooot of interactions


    1. What other mods do you use (namely, do you have any of Turbo’s mods) and what is not coming up in what context? The mod is perfectly functional and whatever contextual thing is happening here we can figure it out with more info.


  6. Hello, i am having issues getting a lot of the options to pop up, like ask for dna test and confess to cheating etc so I did everything you said to do and I have wicked so I downloaded the extra file. would any other mod conflict with your mod?


      1. Native pregnancy is off and they tried for a baby..can you tell me how to put woohoo options back in my game? Thanks for responding


    1. OK, and you have the ‘normal’ version of my mod yes?
      What do you mean ‘put the Woohoo options back in my game’? My mod doesn’t remove those or try for baby, doesn’t touch that at all.


      1. Thanks for responding, so I do have the normal version and I grabbed the additional file. (I have wicked) and the file i downloaded said January 17. so i made sure all settings were as you said, for some reason a lot of the options that it says will come up are not coming and I am not actually able to get options menu when setting the preference. Do I need the paid version for all of the interactions to show and work?


  7. Hi! So i have a sim who got pregnant with her lover’s child but she told her husband he was the father, will she be able to tell him (or the child) the truth in the future or is that option only available during pregnancy/baby stage? Thanks!


  8. Hi. Thank you for sharing this incredible and fun mod. I have downloaded the normal version + WW fix and installed as instructions. However, I’m not getting the “woohoo wellness” interaction options in game when i clicked on his pregnant secret lover. The “relationship wellness” and “pregnancy & family” interaction work perfectly fine tho. Not sure do i have to change any setting to allows “woohoo wellness” show?


    1. Since v2, menus are different. The old ‘Woohoo Wellness’ menu that might still be on screenshots has been split into ‘family and Pregnancy’ and ‘relationship wellness’. Cheats are moved in a menu inside each of these menus. Cheats applying to other Sims than the active one are under ‘actions’ and then ‘Woohoo Wellness Pregnancy’. Hope this helps.


  9. Hi. So I got a weird thing. My male sim asked for a paternity test and it said he wasn’t the father. But in the childs Info it still says he is and my female sim can’t ask anyone else she’s woohood with to test and there’s no certificate either. Any ideas?


      1. I honestly haven’t tried yet, since I’m a legacy player and the new generation hasn’t got the whole “who’s the baby daddy” story.
        But I’ll get back to you in case it keeps happening.


  10. Your mods are amazing, they actually make the game worth playing! Thank you! I’m having an issue though that my male sim was sterilised and has condoms but still got someone pregnant.. and his girlfriend is on birth control and has condoms and also gets pregnant constantly! I use the woohoo interaction and the hook up interaction and both of them lead to pregnancies. Any help would be appreciated – I’m a bit of a mod novice so must be doing something wrong. I have MCC, slice of life and the turbo driver unclogger. Feel like I’m putting my sims through a lot of trauma terminating it every time!


  11. You make the best mods Lumpinou ❤ I have MC Woohoo and Wonderful Whims, I turned off Wonderful's native pregnancy override and have MC Woohoo's risk set to 5% atm. If I just installed modules 1 (Pregnancy Pref), 4 (Paternity), 5 (Teen Preg), 6 (Unwanted Preg), 7 (Cheating) and 9 (Adoption), would that work with those mods & settings? Thank you for all your time and effort making these btw Lumpinou, everyone in the community appreciates it!


  12. Hi! I got a teen couple pregnant, she had the baby, told him was his and he told him parents. But the game doesnt show that the child is his at the family tree, in the profile they show as aquitances 😦 did I do something wrong?


    1. No, that’s something that will happen if he’s a teen and the game doesn’t allow him to appear as father as a teen. It’s something I can fix for v3.


  13. Just downloaded this mod and it’s so good but I’m having a slight problem. I made a sim a surrogate and then after she came back from being inseminated, I took a pregnancy test and it said it was negative. However, I still have a relationship with the person that says I am carrying their baby and it will not let me carry a baby for someone else and says I need to give the baby away first before I carry another, although there is no kid. I turned off the wicked whims thing you said to turn off, but I did this after this whole pregnancy mess. What should I do?


    1. The impregnation is not allowed to fail ; if it did, you have a mod conflict. Either WW with native pregnancy override on or Mc Woohoo with risk above 0. You mention you had the WW override on, so that’s what messed things up. No biggie though, but you need to clear pregnancy markers on your sim under ‘pregnancy and family’ then ‘status’ and that will solve the leftovers.


  14. Hi, I have a couple questions. 1) can I get a legit paternity test (not psychic) during the pregnancy?
    2) can I take a paternity test when my sims only child is a toddler and there are three possibilities?
    3) can I ask to get married due to having a child together when the baby is a toddler?
    4) can I ask to get married to due to having a child together and actually have a real wedding ceremony?
    Thank you for your time.


    1. 1) yes, but to go to a ‘legit’ test they must go with a potential impregnator.

      2) yes, it works after birth too, so long as there’s not a new child born after that one yet.

      3) yes

      4) this being a ‘shotgun wedding’ in essence, the idea was some sort of hurried thing. As of now it works only with, they go immediately sign papers. They can always propose through the normal routes if applicable ; adding a parallel option for a proper proposal but due to the same reason is something I can think about


      1. If you want some ideas for interactions regarding shotgun weddings, maybe the sim could ask(not kneel down and propose) and in the days leading up to it the sims could have some conversations regarding the wedding. One that I thought of was the pregnant sim using the interaction to her partner or others “worry about showing during wedding” or something like that. Also it would be really cool if the check babies gender option worked for multiples.


  15. Hello, i have a question i’ve downloaded and all seem good except cannot get paternity test all 3 potentials are happy about pregnancy? i need help.


  16. Hi! I have used your mod for a bit now, but since the last update Paternity Testing is not working anymore. My sim can’t tell another sim if it’s their child or not and there’s no option to do the test. Everything else seems to be working still, it’s just that module that doesn’t show up.


    1. I literally can’t do that, I started modding after legacy became a thing, I have no knowledge or access to the older code system and therefore certainly can’t make anything for it


  17. So I absolutely love your mods – I’m new to them but the paternity mod doesn’t seem to work at all. I’ve had a sim sleep with four random men, all fertile, and they’re all thrilled about the pregnancy but no option to ask if the baby is theirs/any confusion on who the father is. I have arturlwww’s pregnancy mod installed but that’s it. Bit lost!


    1. The mod you mentioned is basically the only one that is completely incompatible with mine, as listed in the compatibility section of my download post. No wonder you’re having trouble having things work 🙂


  18. Hi! I have recently started using your mods (they’re amazing!) but I can’t get the paternity mod to work. I’ve tried 6 times with 4 possible fathers. I’ve experimented with try for a baby and woohoos minus protection. My sim cannot tell anybody that they’re not/are the father. No potential father can ask for a paternity test. My sim can ask all of the possible dads for money and to go to classes even if the child turns out not to be theirs. Am I doing something wrong?
