[ARCHIVED] Sims stand in or walk through solid objects/ Clipping gotten worse

[ Edited ]
Champion

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? Seasons Patch
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, Get To Work, Get Together, City Living, Outdoor Retreat, Jungle Adventure, Spa Day, Parenthood, Dine Out, Fitness Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Luxury Party Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, My First Pet Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try having sims use or stand around a pop-up bar (such as at a dance party or festival) or a baby in a bassinet.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims walk through the object as if it had no collision impact or stand inside it instead of beside it.
What do you expect to see? For sims to avoid clipping through solid objects.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. June 2018 patches.

Since the recent patches in June, I've noticed increased cases of sims completely ignoring the boundaries of previously solid objects.

 

Here's a pic of how they treated a portable bar at a chalet dance party:

They also seemed to walk straight through the DJ booth.

 

I've also noticed parents walking straight through a baby in a bassinet in order to feed them, instead of going around the bassinet. Then the other parent came over to kiss the spouse that was in front of the bassinet and walked and stood inside the bounds of the bassinet.

 

Previously, I'd only see sims resort to walking through a solid object if they were totally stuck while trying to avoid something. But now they just don't seem to register that the object shouldn't be walked into.

 

Could be related to all the weird pathing, routing and teleporting issues that are also present since the Seasons patch.

Fixed an issue in which some Sims could stand on, or walk through solid objects.
○ Specifically Baby Bassinets… babies were becoming quite paranoid they weren’t actually Sims…

 


Some stuff fixed in Patch 1.59.73 .. archiving this thread.

 

 

Please create a new thread if there'still clipping for specific objects.

Sims are walking through/standing in furniture/objects really frequently in my game - and also sort of “in” other sims. I can’t think why. I don’t use any mods or CC except MCCC, and I don’t have the move objects cheat on or anything. It doesn’t make the game unplayable for me. But, I wish they wouldn’t! As others have said, it seems to have begun since the June 2018 patches (also before I downloaded MCCC, so it’s not that). The crib has been mentioned, but that is one of the objects I have seen sims stand in, too.

I have the same issue. Sims are walking right through sofas, coffee tables and kitchen counters.

Instead of walking in the free space of the chair, a sim will prefer to pass through the counter.

In a Café, the consumers always pass through the counter after they took their product.

I'm seeing the same thing in my game a lot lately, but especially walking through counters when there is plenty of room to do otherwise. I have to say though, I'd almost rather that than the  foot stomping and hand waving even when there was a clear route to walk between objects that used to drive me crazy in Sims 3.

I've noticed this as well. The sims seem to be quite "magical" lately in multiple ways. :D

Not a particularly new topic, but I'm noticing this severely since the last patch.
