The death of a sim can be an emotional time. The Grim Reaper shows up with his scythe in hand, the family gathers around to send their loved one off, and a period of mourning descends upon the house. But, if a Sim has lived a good, long life, this can also be a chance for celebration in recognition of time well spent.
Players are reporting this all happening after a visit to create-a-sim (CAS), or during the loading screens. This is even when the game’s “Long Lifespan” is enabled.
