Re: [OPEN] Sims using far away object instead of close one

★ Apprentice

I'm having the same issue myself, and reading through some of the responses here, apparently it's an issue I've had that I've not noticed. Recently, my Sims begin preparing meals, such as garden salads/fruit salads, inside the kitchen, then take them outside to finish cooking if there are any counters placed in the yard (by a grill for example.) There was also a time where they'd go prepare meals on bathroom counters, cook through any half-walls counters are placed by, or act as if something was blocking their path to the counter when there isn't.

 

Reading responses here, I've also had issues of my Sims going to eat at tables farther away from them, use sinks in bathrooms that are farther away, etc. I've tried repairing my game, taking my entire Mods folder out, play in different saves, and with different households, to no avail. The fact that this thread is from November and nothing's been fixed yet really makes me sad :/ I guess I won't be building counters outside for a while.

I've also been having this issue. My sims just love using the bathroom sink to clean dishes and not the one in the kitchen.

Hi @Dex1dus

 

I move your post to the current 'collection thread on this.

 

Others have reported the issue wit the dishwasher as well but also with two sinks or counters. So keeping it all together.

  • Sims should now use the closest counter to prepare Garden Salads of any portion size.
  • Sims should now use the closest sink to wash dishes.
  • Sims should now only use a single Kitchen space to prepare a meal, even on Lots with multiple kitchens.


Few fixes in Patch Fixed in Patch 1.45.62
