Economic suicide

I find it kind of odd that the suicide button pops up if you spend all your money while working on your house, especially if your family are still alive and well.

Now that's a life message communicated by a video game. Who said games can't be educational? smile

Re: Economic suicide

The reason it does that is because the Suicide button is usually only available on the Self-Test page.

But if you have no money, you can't change your house in order to GET to that Self-Test page.

If your house has not been robbed, hitting DONE will take you back to the menu.  The only way to reach the Self-Test page at that point (if you are trying to kill yourself) is to ERASE something from the house, which is hard for people to figure out.

If your house has been robbed and some family members are now blocked in, the DONE button is hidden until you fix that.  But if you have no money, fixing that can be counter-intuitive (because you can't place objects, etc.)

So, the Suicide button is shown for convenience in that case.  It disappears as soon as you edit something in the house, though, because at that point, you've indicated that you're not simply trying to commit suicide.

Ah, okay. That's a good enough reason for me.
