I'm trying to figure out the family dynamics of the Tricou family, but it seems like every time I resurrect them I get a different result. Part of it might be the differences between the original and cleaned up hoods, and the Resurrect-O-Nomitron making the ressurector Best Friends with everyone.

Dina running

The first time I played them a long time ago, Kiernen and Jennail hated each other while Nyllisit and Kvornan immediately started making out due to ACR. The wiki describes a similar thing to what I remember. I just resurrected them using the original hood and Nyllisit and Kvornan now have negative chemistry and Jennail vaguely dislikes Kiernen while he seems to have no problem with her? I would appreciate if anyone's who's resurrected this family and played with them could describe how everyone got along with each other in your game.

ETA: I'm looking at their relationships in Sim Pe and it's all oddly imbalanced with almost no mutual scores between two Sims. Almost everyone dislikes Kiernen, but he doesn't dislike any of them back! And Gvaudoin has a 0 or lower lifetime score with everyone except Fricorith.

I've only done it once using Jon's Decendants method. I had a very similar experience to the first one you describe. I remember Jennail and Jennicor taking turn slapping Keirnan while Nylisst and Kvornon were making out, the kids embarrassed by the whole thing.
I actually remember Jon had the want to resurrect everyone EXCEPT Jennicor as well.
Hope that helps.

I'm actually using both a cleaned hood and the original, so I'm trying to figure out what the differences are.

I didn't resurrect them, I nabbed them from maxis_taste but I have noticed the odd family dynamics. Jennicor and Jennail stalk Kiernan and fight him constantly. Also Jennail isn't in love with Kvornan and Nyllisit doesn't love Kiernan.

When I resurrected them Jennail and Kiernan were immediately all over each other, but Nyllissit hates Kvornan, but I think he had a decent relationship score towards her.

I can't remember who I had resurrect who, so I don't know if that relationship boost had anything to do with it.

When I resurrected them in my game Rainelle seems to have had some sort of secret affair with Kiernan Tricou, which makes no sense because I'm pretty sure he was already dead when she moved into the HoFT. And this is using meetme2theriver's fixed neighbourhood templates. It's very confusing!

And everyone hates Kiernan, especially Jennail. They're regularly having punch-ups. Other than that, everyone is best friends and all dandy (thanks to the Resurrect-O-Nomitron, I think).

Yeah, I got that with the cleaned up hood as well. In the original hood she doesn't seem to have any relations whatsoever, though.

Lol, poor Kiernen! I had Fricorith resurrect everyone because he seems to be the only one that nobody hates.

I moved a sim in that house once, resurrected the kids first and all was fine. Then I resurrected the rest. I don't remember what Nylissit and the 2nd generation men were doing because Jennicor and Jon Smith were constantly making out and Jennail would start shouting matches with Gvaudoin and Fricorith would run off and cry. I don't know if it was the cleaned templates that did it (I used SaraMK's) or if that was just bound to happen. Or was it InSim's fault? Or was it the fact the sim I moved in there was a teenager? Dunno. But it seems like the only ones I found that got along were the grandkids.

In my game - when I resurrected them to make-over the house, Gvaudoin became enemies with Jennicor immediately after being resurrected...her grandmother only tried to give her a hug! XD

Re: The Tricous in my game
Thank you so much! These seem to match with what I saw in my backup hood. There seems to be a lot of drama in this family!

For what it's worth - I have not and do not intend to resurrect the Tricous, but I am using the Tricou descendants. When I look in their family trees in the game, they all have two dead parents - Jon Smith and some apparently random dead townie. When I look in the Family Ties in SimPE, however, they only show Parent A, Jon Smith. This is not just a matter of them being bastards, as one of my Tricous has carried on the family tradition and had a bastard, whose Parent B shows up in SimPE.

I've always figured that the Tricou family was the result of playtesting and experimentation during development that got left in either from rushed deadlines, sentimentality (you just know Jon Smith Tricou was some playtester's favorite sim ever!), or because they thought it would be interesting for the audience - the last of which certainly is the case.
Nov. 23rd, 2011 12:48 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think that makes the most sense. So much of the stuff doesn't seem to have much thought behind it. It's interesting that there are no living playable that come with NL.
Nov. 26th, 2011 03:05 am (UTC)
I'm not sure why the Tricou relationships seem to be different everytime the family is played. I've played with them a couple of times and it always slightly different, although Gvaudoin always has very low lifetime relationship scores with everyone except Fricorith, Jennail always hates Kiernan and Jennicor and Kvornan are always attracted to one another. Tis strange. :)
Nov. 26th, 2011 04:27 am (UTC)
Kvornan seems to get on pretty well with all the ladies in the family if he gets the chance, almost as much as Kiernen has trouble getting anyone to like him!
Mar. 3rd, 2012 06:44 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't know. I mess with their memories and relationships in SimPE to fit my story, and all I remember is that everyone except for Fricorith, Jon and Nyllisit hated both Gvaudoin and Kiernan. EA may have intended for the two to be vampires, and the three that don't hate them either like it or they don't care. In my Sims Story they're all going to be vampires (and die in a different order). As for the descendants, I really don't want to grow up Knut Sims/Orion Teens/Whatever-you-call-him because of his borky facial template, though my story spans over a long time (like, 700 years if you count flashbacks) so I... What the hell am I going on about? Well, back on topic, it's basic math: Nearly everone hates Kiernan and Gvaudoin.

Tricou family sims 2
I've created a sim named Dr. Taylor Mickwell whos job was to ressurect sims from the dead using the ressurectonomotron. I had on a mailbox cheat and made him know every person in town, including dead people. I resurrected the Tricous first because they seemed to have no living relatives and I wanted to see who they were. Everyone seemed to have a mutual relationship. Their memories were only everyone dying and them inheriting money from either Jon Smith or a dog. After I moved them out I resurrected the Neengia person. I found their story of living downtown and looked in the house of fallen trees and the gothier green lawns place, in the house was the teens and the neengia persons grave which made me wonder what had happened, I was going to just move them back in there as a big happy family, but there is something strange that doesn't add up about it all.
