  • What was your Sim doing when he reset ? hugging another Sim.
  • Did only your Sim reset or others in the surrounding too ? If so, what were they doing ? only the Sims hugging.
  • On which lot did the issue occur ? Nookstone and others, it's not one specific lot.

 

  • What was your Sim doing when he reset ? having a drink.
  • Did only your Sim reset or others in the surrounding too ? If so, what were they doing ? Sim(s) sitting and drinking at the bar.
  • On which lot did the issue occur ? last seen at The Blue Velvet. but it's not one specific lot.

 

i forgot to write about these. the resetting doesn't happen every time. maybe 25% of the time? there are no lastexception files present.

the hugging thing also happens when Sims are closer to each other, and they raise their arms in the opposite direction. i don't think it happens when they hug properly.

cc/mods removed, but both things have happened back when i didn't use either.

I also have this issue. Flex autonomously kissed my sim's hands (they were not in any relationship) to my surprise which isn't an issue I think it should happen more often he was flirty, but the animation was just a mess. The arms streched very awkwardly as my sim standed there.

Do you also have them just standing around ? 

 

Was it just that animation or do you have it in general ?

Yes, my sim was standing after he changed into the robe and suddenly that happened. I've seen it with a few animations including the "issue a citation" animation.

The citation one is a known one so I think your issue might not be the same one as OP.

I'm not sure but it's happening a lot for some reason.

I can't help but laugh at this point.
