[ARCHIVE] Relationships get lost (aka Relationship Culling)

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

EDIT (Crin)

 

This thread has become a bit of a collection thread, so I'm going to summarize the current issues

 

  • On rotational game play, Sims are completely removed from the Sims panel (this is by design)
  • Relationship decays very fast (This has gotten worse since the June 2nd patch

 

 

 Original Post: 

 

Spoiler
Every sim day, my child sim goes to the park, meets tons of other child sims and sometimes even makes a friend or two.  The next morning, when she wakes up, her contact list is empty except for her own family.

Sims Forget All Non-family Relationships Overnight

★★★★ Novice

My Sims forget everyone they met every day when they go to bed.  This is making it pretty difficult for them to develop friendships, get married, or get promoted in careers that require a certain amount of friends.  This just started happening over the weekend (9/6-7).  I've downloaded all updates, ran "repair game", and uninstalled and reinstalled, but it's still happening.  

 

Any suggestions?

Hello,

When My sim goes to bed I lose almost all relations ships I have with other Sims.

They will just all dissapear from my contact list... Sometimes I make 2-3 friends in one day, when I go to bed they go away from my contact list

Bug: Non-family friends disappear from friends tab after taking potion of youth

★ Newbie

Prep Steps: 3rd generation (child of child of original) character.  Advance to young adult.  After most of that time is exhausted, apply potion of youth.  Repeat.

Problem: Making new friends causes them to appear on the relationship tab.  However, between 2AM-3AM (Game clock), those friends all disappear.  Does not cause family members to disappear.

Tester info: I suspect there is a state bug in the relationship subsystem that is causing this problem once two potions of youth have been applied

Attempted corrections: Saved and restarted game.  Rebooted PC.  Problem remains.

Environment, PC, Windows7, English (North America)

Relationships disappearing

★★★★ Novice

My child sim has an aspiration to be friends with 5 other children. As they can't meet other children in school in 4, I've sent her to the park several times and had her introduce herself to several other children. She interacts with them for a while, builds a relationship, and then when she returns home the relationships are gone. I try to call them and they don't show up, and when I click the relationship tab, they aren't there. It's making it impossible to complete this aspiration.
