[ARCHIVED] Sims interacting through walls/closed doors

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Guide

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? Backyard SP, Cool Kitchen SP, Fitness SP, Movie Hangout SP.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? have one Sim in a room. get another one to talk to them.
What happens when the bug occurs? they will talk to each other through a wall or a closed door.
What do you expect to see? both Sims talking in the same room.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

here is a thread using the new template. the original is here.

 

a Sim will be in a room doing whatever, and another one will walk up to them to chat. sometimes the second Sim will not go into the room, but talk to the first one through a wall or a closed door. might be similar to when a Sim takes a photograph, and a wall/closed door separates them from the one who is posing?

 

EDIT: This is a new thread for an existing one. Merged the old one in here. Original Me Too Count was: 48

Re: Socialize through Walls?

Hero

Sims can no longer Serenade other Sims through a wall.

Fixed in Patch 1.54.120

 

 

This is only a partial fix for all the issues reported in this thread.

 

Seeing that each interaction will probably need to be fixed seperatly, please create a new thread for each interaction you see them do through walls.


Thanks.

[OPEN] Sims talking/singing/serenading through walls

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I have my sims talk/sing through walls - one example they were in an apartment and one of the sims
went out in the hallway common area to stand on the other side of the wall to listen to her spouse
serenading her from inside the bedroom.

 

Yesterday it appeared again with the serenading - this time in a house in Windenburg - both of my
sims were standing in the kitchen when suddenly one of them ran out of the house and out in the
garden. Ending up in front of the wall to the kitchen then standing there listening to the one in the
kitchen serenading him.

 

The first example happened shortly after Vintage Glamour came out and was installed at my
computer.

 

After reading others having same problem - I thought I would post it here.

 

I have no mods.

This happens with me to, not just serenading, but general talking, the kids invite friends over and they talk through the closed front door. also sims are talking through walls, one will be in the bathroom standing there talking to someone in the next room, yet they have room in the other room to talk.

Same issue for me - seems to have been after Vampire release but I'm not positive.  Sims will hold conversations through walls & doors.  Usually I just have them "chat here" and tell them to go sit somewhere together.
