Re: Butler not appearing on lot while visiting

★★★★ Novice

However I have found I can add a butler to a club - travel somewhere - start a club meeting - and the butler shows up. I like this.

Traits seem very unbalanced in general, wouldn't count that as a bug. Not sure about the age but I wouldn't necessarily count that as a bug either.

 

I'll check on the rest tomorrow

Re: Problems with butler

★★★★ Novice

I have this issue aswell. I had one butler for the Goths and then I hired a butler for Bjergsens and the same butler showed up. I fired that one from Bjergsens and hired a new one, but then that one showed up at the Goths instead! Arrrgh so frustrating!

No Mod or with mod, both are happening. It seems to happen to maids and neat sims too. They just never clean those plates.

My butlers seem to cook a zillion meals. I have to now close the kitchen off and set the door lock not to let them in. They are wasting food and it just too much for my sims to finish before they even spoil. It's like a buffet up in those houses.

Can't duplicate your issue.

 

Do you have a save you are willing to share ?

HI @LennethValkyri3

 

We are looking into this issue. What other traits does the Butler have and chef have? Can upload your save game ?


If so, please zip up this folder: documents\electronicarts\thesims4\saves and drop the file to this Mediafire-Link to upload.

 

Please make sure to name the zip file with your user name.

I am having the issue of the same sim being hired as butler for multiple households. Attempting to dismiss and hire a butler again re-hires the same sim.

I want different households to have different butlers, and can find no way of accomplishing this.

@roBurky    Unfortunately there's no fool proof way to accomplish it at the moment. Even if you fire the butler and hire a new one and actually manage to get a different one, usually the original one ends up coming back eventually. It IS annoying, and I hope that the Maxis team is looking into a way to let us select different butlers for different households. It'd be nice if they gave us a list to choose from like we have with restaurant employees. And while they're at it, it would be similarly nice to select from a list for maids, nannies and gardeners.
