[ARCHIVED] [CD] Can't lecture/train pets

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I've bought all the sims 4 game packs, stuff packs, expansions, free content and have all of them installed.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I discovered it by transfering pets I've made into a pre-exisiting house.
What happens when the bug occurs? You can't scold or lectuer them. "lecture about barking" etc. doesn't come up. Only 'scold' under the mean option.
What do you expect to see? I expect to beable to lecture the pets about their bad behavours.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

So the Sims I've been playing with have 4 dogs and 2 cats. With the release of the pets expantion pack, I wasn't sure if there was a way to enter CAS and make the pets without resetting my Sims so I just made a new sim, made what their pets look like, added the random sim with the pets into the world and then tranfered the pets into the household by the map. With the 4 dogs and 2 cats being transfered into the household instead of being created a long with them, I noticed you can't lectuer or scold the pets about certin things, like if they drink out of the toliet or bark and wake them up where if you create them with a family or adopt them, you can.

Hi @OhnoArno

 

that's all working well for me. Didn't have an issue with these.

 

 

Not sure I understand right how you got them into the game.

 

You created the with another Sim and then added to your existing household ?

Yes. Because my existing family was before cats and dogs. So I went into CAS, loaded in a sim I had created a while ago by replacing the randomly generated sim you get. Then I made the pets I wanted for the existing family, which was 2 cats and 4 dogs. Then I placed the sim that had all the pets on, in a random lot and using the map, transferred the pets into my existing family. Once I started playing that family, whenever the pets would do something 'bad' the option to lecture or scold them wouldn't come up. I thought maybe it was because my sims didn't have a high enough relationship with them because they didn't start off knowing them, so I had to do the introductions for all of them but once I got them up to friends, I still can't tell lector them. 

 

I did the same thing with another family and I can't lecture them either so it seems like a consistent bug on my end lol?

Could you start a fresh save for testing purposes to see if it works there. There seem to be a lot of issues with existing saves.

I don't mind, I'm just not sure how. Do I just upload the whole save folder? and can you recommend a place to upload it, to link it please?

Best would be either google drive, oneDrive or dropbox.

 

If you know which save, you can just upload that, if not, zip the whole folder
