I have the Sims 3 Ambitions and Late Night expansion packs installed and when I detonate stuff to get scraps and the challenge, I seem to be losing friendship points with all my friends and even family members even though I am detonating my own stuff at home.

This might be related to the fact that I have a 1 start celebrity star and paparazzi sometimes disgrace me using saying I'm vandalizing.

Can I detonate objects without losing friends?

@Bora Magicka rivals TF2 in the "surprisingly gory" category. –  Maxpm May 9 '11 at 4:29

It would not surprise me if this were yet another bug. –  Raven Dreamer May 12 '11 at 1:47

I have detonated many of my own objects, but I do have a higher celebrity rating (5).

Maybe if you build your celebrity rating before you try to detonate anything else.

If you still need scrap, you can buy an inventing workshop and buy scrap, or you can go to the dump and scavenge for scrap in the piles of rubbish.

where do you detonate these? i always do it in the garden, maybe doing it inside would help but one of my sims peed itself in its room and the paparazi still found out. –  Andy May 9 '11 at 11:03
    
I do it inside, but I don't think they actually peed themself, sometimes paparazzi just make stuff up and then your sim has to live with 3 days of public humiliation. –  Zoe May 11 '11 at 5:27
    
@Zoe it does say 'false aquisation' on the moddlet then though. –  Andy May 12 '11 at 7:39
    
@Andy so that should have been a one off thing. If you try to detonate again, it probably won't happen. –  Zoe May 19 '11 at 1:44
    
@Zoe no i get it every time, even if i still have a moodlet, it just resets timer on it. its also never a false aquisation for my outdoor detonating. would the fact that i blow up multiple things and sometimes fail to blow them all up causing some residue to catch fire be causing these problems? –  Andy May 19 '11 at 7:38
