Kids running away from home?

Anyone ever had their kids (or spouse) disappear from their home forever, even though they weren't killed?  Like, the last tape you have of them shows them running out the door, but then the tape after that shows them gone?  And when you come home, they're gone?

Largestherb reported this to me a while back, and I saw it happen myself on tape.  But now I can't find his post about that on the forums.... maybe it wasn't Largestherb.  But I'm pretty sure it happened in Miller's house (I have in my notes that it was Ronald Roy Constant's tape of robbing Miller where Miller's kids left for good).

Can anybody help me with more info here?  Especially with finding the posts where we discussed this (the date is important, because then I can go pull that database backup and get the tape back).

Re: Kids running away from home?

My kids always want to stay until the reach their thirties at least. sad

But might it have been a deleted post in the bugs forum? (I noticed that posts there seem to be deleted at times.)


In fact you can be batman.

Re: Kids running away from home?

yep, it was mine who ran away.

i've been ~trying~ to recreate it where possible, by killing other peoples partner next to the doorstep, with some dead dogs in the original path and children having left first (or being left behind), then revisiting the house to see if the kids are gone or still there. so far they have always come back.

but i vow to keep killing people's partners in an effort to get their children to run away.

Aha!

If some of the family leaves the house, but you kill one of them (to force the house state to save) and then commit suicide, the escaped family members do not return to their starting positions and are gone forever.  Will be fixed in v10.
