Re: Problems with butler

★★★★ Novice

Hello,

 

So I am doing legacy challenged. And of course have family butler that everyone loves however, if I am at home for many days, or leave the lot and return home something happens that I so called a "swapping butler". Our beloved butler, that we adore is being swapped to this butler that we fired many times, that we hate and he hates us. It happens each time. And each time we fire him and hire new one, then our beloved butler comes back! Please help. It really messes up my challenge at times and no one wants a butler that does nothing.

  • Butlers will remember who they are working for, even if you load a different household to play.
    • Jeeves?
      • No madam, my name is Binks madam.
    • But he was taking care of the baby!
      • I’m sorry madam, but there is this notification.
  • Butlers should no longer appear in your list to hire a butler if that butler was formerly fired.

 


Two fixes for butlers on 1.33.38

I have some of the issues listed, but my main one is - the butler won't sleep... this means night time drags on even on fastest speed!

Hi @alanmichael1

 

Just some follow up questions on your save. The Household is Weiss but what was the name of the butler that appeared at the spice market? is the issue still occurring?

Hello @IrishMadCat_EA

 

my game has proceeded 2 generations further since then, but I still found the butler because he is one of those immortal repairman Sims. His name is Rachid Al Habib. The family is living in the self-built house on the island. I don't know if the issue still occurs. Generally the butler worked quite well, but I would love an option to send him to sleep.

Just want to forward along some info from SimGuruGraham about expected behavior with butlers:

 

"The butler silently rotates between roles in the background, from maid, to repairman, to gardener, to nanny. If the butler is currently in the maid role and has low fun, they're going to choose to read instead of repairing anything. Once they switch to to the repairman role, then they'll go fix something that's broken. "

I'm currently a bit unsure about how to handle this thread as some issues might have been fixed.

 

Would be glad if people could re-report their open issues on butlers.

Re: Butler need decay?

I cannot assign bed to butler. I've tried different beds, moving the bed, leaving and coming back, saving and doing a power cycle, ... The first time the butler apparently was dismissed and a new one returned when my Sim returned home. Frustrating.

Hi @Player_5tdc5pew

 

could you please make a new thread for this. This one is a bit of a mess. I think separate threads are more useful

 

I'm going to lock this one so it goes for all butler issues. Make a thread per issue.

 

Thanks.
