Household History Edit
The Sims 3 Edit
The Sims 3 household consists of the Caliente sisters - Dina Caliente and Nina Caliente, as well as a third member, Luisa Libros. Their bio text states that the Calientes are teaching Luisa new ways to live. It's possible that Dina and Nina lived in Barnacle Bay with their family, then their parents died and they moved to Pleasantview. However, Dina's biography contradicts this, and both Dina and Nina have more skills in The Sims 3 than they did at the start of The Sims 2.
The Sims 4 Edit
The Sims 4 base game features Dina and Nina in an alternate timeline, living with Don Lothario and their alternative mother, Katrina. Although they do not have individual bios, the household bio text gives a similar story of a flirtatious household who may have troubles with commitment. The bio states that Don has joined the family as Katrina's "boy toy", although their relationship at the start of the game does not show this. It is implied that Don will develop his usual romantic interest in Dina and Nina as well over time.
The family is much wealthier than in previous installments of the game, having §28,500 in household funds (compared to just over §1,000 in The Sims 2 and §2,400 in The Sims 3) and living in a much larger house, in what is obviously intended to be an upper-class area of Oasis Springs.
- The Sims 4 takes place in an alternative timeline from that of the rest of the PC games. Dina, Nina and Don are Young Adults, as they were in The Sims 3, suggesting that the two games take place at around the same time in the respective timelines of these characters. (Though it should be noted that all three were Adults in The Sims 2, despite their appearances in that game canonically taking place before The Sims 3, but this is due to the Young Adult life stage functioning differently in that installment.)
- Dina, Nina and Don are all 20 days away from becoming Adults when first played in The Sims 4. This is the case for most Young Adults in the base game, with the exception of the members of the BFF household.
- The Sims 4 is the second game to feature Dina, Nina and Don living in a single household; the first was The Sims 2 (console).
- Despite the alternate timeline of The Sims 4, Katrina Caliente is the only Sim to date whose existence is actually contradicted in the original timeline, since she replaces Flamenco Caliente and Nighat Caliente as Dina and Nina's known parent(s).
