[ARCHIVED] Hired sims don't appear

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Click on any object you can hire a serviceNPC on and click hire blaba.
What happens when the bug occurs? The NPC does not show up although money is deducted
What do you expect to see? The NPC to show up
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 

I had about 10 birthdays and a couple of weddings in my game so far, and very often I hired musicians and bartenders. I mean the menu where you can hire a cook, a musician and a bartender when you organize a party. You can either select a known sim there, or use an option to hire someone without an icon (I suppose the game generates a new sim in this case or selects a random one?), I used the latter one.

 

So I noticed that pretty often they don't even appear at the party. I've seen them only a couple of times, in most cases the game takes money to hire them but nothing happens eventually.

Re: Hired sims don't appear at parties

★★★★ Novice

I have been having this problem too. But the weird thing is, when I hire a specific sim to be the caterer or mixologist or whatever, when I return home from the wedding location, the sim that I specifically hired is outside my house. As if they got called to my house instead of the wedding location.

No Caterers or Entertainers Show Up When Hired

★★ Novice

A lot of NPCs have died and now no entertainers or caterers show up to a planned party when I hire them. Even when I click on the stove or piano to HIRE, I get a notification saying someone is on the way but no one shows up. Do I have to sit and spend time creating new sims, getting them jobs, and leveling up their careers before they'll come to my main family's parties? Isn't the game suppose to create jobs for these NPCs? I run into a ton of NPCs that are "Unemployed".

There are no mods. The entire mod folder was deleted about 200 saves ago

Could you try  a new save for testing purposes to see if it's save game related or a general issue
