Detective: cannot find suspect after APB

★★★★ Novice

I am a detective and I have finished gathering all the clues> I have been issuing a APB for the last several days of work and I cannot find the suspect at the scene where they take me. I ask people and they either say that they have seen that person over there but there is no one matching the description or that they thought they saw them but they may have left. I'm not sure what to do because I can't go forward without completing the case. Please help

I didn't have this issue until the update for City Living. I was just playing the other day and had no issue. New update, now I have this issue.

So you can't find the Sim on the lot where he's supposed to be ?

No, I could not. I realized it may have been mods.

 

I had MC Command Center installed and obviously the update disabled it. It's the only script mod I run. So I played the game without the mod. I tried to find the suspect, one fit everything but the trait and was incorrect. I decided to update the mod. This time it took me to a different lot with someone that fit the description entirely. I tried arresting the suspect and got a wrongful arrest. I got frustrated and just tried to arrest everyone in sight. I finally got someone and this suspect only fit one of the clues. 

 

I've not gotten far enough in a new case to see if this happens again and as you see I'm not sure if it was the mod, the update or something else entirely.

Reports here should always be on vanilla games, especially shortly after new patches.

 

I am keeping an eye on this though as it does still seem to happen occasionally.

Ok, it was vanilla when it was happening.  Although I'm not sure if having mods previously installed would have affected it, so I mentioned it.

 

Thanks Crinrict!

I posted this on the Sims forum and I was asked to post my issue here, so here yah go.

I HAVE repaired (several times actually), I have done the vanilla game. (moving the Sims 4 file out and letting the game generate all new files) ... and I have NO mods or CC in my game.

My issue has been since the October 2016 patch. A sim began the Detective career, and after finding clues, analyzing evidence and such... she issued the APB. The suspect clues (YA, female, geek, wearing tank top and jeans - for example) on more than one occasion - have been completely wrong. The sim she finally arrested didn't match ANY of the clues.
