[FIXED] Active sim slides only once/ Walk back on slide

[ Edited ]

No mods/cc, new save – active sim slides only once and then wanders away (I checked with both slides). The bug doesn't seem to affect townies. Repairing the game didn't make a difference.

I don't know if any other Simmer than me was still affected by the walking-on-waterslides-bug, but today's patch finally fixed for me. I tested both slide types and Sims will queue up as intended and walk back beside the slide. Thank you a thousand times!

I've seen other reports on this

 

Could you list all the EP/SPs you have ?

 

I'm testing this atm.

 

 

EDIT: I can't replicate this in my game. It works fine for me. 

 

Are you doing trick ? On his own ? Other Sims in the queue as well ?

@crinrict I have all DLCs except for the Kids Room and Romantic Garden. I tried the plain slide, trick slide, sliding alone, sliding with others. I tried it on a generic lot and it worked (seemed to), but then I had issues again in a park (lots of empty space around the slide). Then the sliding worked. Then it didn't. If a sim doesn't walk away, it gets frozen for sim hours at a time – no wonder it's hard to replicate, because it changes for me all the time. When it works, I notice a lot of clipping with other sliders too.

OK. I do some more testing on other lots.

 

I've tried my retail lot where I have no issues

I can generelly confirm this bug - Sims stop to use the waterslide very quickly. And what is worse: After sliding they walk back to the start ON the slide.

Does it also happen on a new game for you ?

 

I haven't been able to duplicate this.

 

I don't think issues like this are save game related but would either of you be willing to share yours ?

@crinrict I started a new save today and thought the bug was gone, but after more tries it popped up again. There's no rhyme or reason to it though I'm afraid – but it happens more often with slide or slide with interaction I guess. What is pretty consistent are other sims standing and chatting on a slide when it's in use or coming back to the starting point walking on it (causing cutting with other sims). I'll PM you a link to my save, if it's OK.

My problem is sims are using the slides once then going off to other places on the lot.
