Bella Goth was NOT accidentally deleted by Maxis
Ugh, a simsecret this week started this rumour out of nowhere and now the comments are full of people going “What?! I never knew!!!1”
NO. NO. Bella Goth was NOT accidentally deleted by Maxis. They are NOT that goddamn incompetent. If they HAD deleted her, they could have gotten her back, or simply made a new one. But she’s NOT EVEN DELETED. She is RIGHT THERE, with all of her data. All you have to do is remove her death token, set her “unlinked” variable from 1 to 0, and move her into a family. Her disappearance was very obviously deliberately done by Maxis, since they fiddled with her so that she would be unavailable but still show up as alive in the Goth family tree. Quite clever, actually.
Please kill this rumour before it starts popping up everywhere and annoy the fuck out of me.
