I'd like to know if it's possible to edit a single occurrence memory file in SimPE so that it will repeat.

Obviously, there are memories such as "met aliens" or "had an accident" that will be added to a Sim's history every time time they occur, whereas other memories, such as "kissed.." and "made out with.." etc. never occur twice between the same Sims. It seems a pity to me.

I wouldn't have noticed it but for two Sims I sent out on a date who kissed but didn't get a memory of it. Then I realised they'd dated, kissed and made out before, back in their teens. Maybe it isn't such a big deal but, like so much I'm still discovering of TS2 after all these years, it irks!

Anyway, I'd be interested to know what any TS2 memory experts have to say on the matter. Thanks.

It's definitely possible. I don't know how to do it, but that's another story.

I'd start by cloning a memory with all the OW options unticked (this makes it a default replacement rather than a new memory), and looking at the BHAVs. Opcode 0x2000 (Sub - Add Memory) takes an argument called "Unique Per Sim". I'd imagine if you change the value of that arg you'd probably get the outcome you're looking for, though I don't know what all the values are or if there are any other spots in the BHAVs you'd have to edit.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

Memories are always applied using the 'CT - Add Memory' op-code, for sim to sim memories that usually calls the semi-global 'Sub - Add Memory Subject as nID' with four parameters.
Param 0 is Owner Nid, Param 1 is subject Nid, Param 2 is quality (Gold, Silver or Bronze). Param 3, the last one is the one you want which can be 0 for repeatable, 1 for unique or 2 for unique per sim.
