Mysterious choking death I finally witnessed the mysterious choking death that Maxis (apparently) refuses to acknowledge. I was playing my regular family, the twins had just turned into adults. When I noticed the Grim Reaper!. My sim was crumpled on the ground, apparently dead. Since I had just started the game, I closed without saving and tried again. But the same thing happened, so obviously it wasn't random chance. My female sim got out of bed put her hands around her neck like she was choking and dropped dead. All her stats were green and she wasn't sick. I had to reload a couple of times till I managed to get her husband to plead for her life. Thankfully that worked. Then after this episode was over, I find out she's pregnant. So that's another thing that seems to correspond to MCDS (mysterious choking death syndrome. Actually now that I think about it, it happened around the time she should have been throwing up. Could that be the association. hmmmm.
