This too has popped up for me since the Nov 7 patch, but it's happens ALL the time when the Sims are out somewhere, whenever their specific needs are in the red and it doesn't even have to be an ongoing social event either, happens anytime they're out and their needs are in the red. I can easily counter it by sending them home if it's not any social event at least though. If it's too frustrating i'll essentially just cheat and fill their needs anyway.
Thanks, SimSilv123 as well as OMGStars prompted me to stick my toe into the waters, seeing if I could make a simple mod to fix this and so far it looks like it works. Hopefully it gets fixed in a patch soon but hey I made my first mod ever! P.S. I just made the changes from this posting I would have never figured out where to look otherwise...
i'm seeing this at venues as well. Sims will not use the bathroom when i click on autosolve, but "return to active lot" pops up. it results in them walking outside to stand at the front of the venue. the "fun" and "social" needs do work with autosolve, but "hunger" only sometimes.
This is so bloody annoying does anyone know if there's an EA fix in the works?! We shouldn't have to keep creating mods and programs to fix the issues created by EAs patches, this should be on THEM to fix!
Sims at a social event with failing needs will now properly return to their active lot when you tell them to do so as expected.
Fixed in Patch 1.44.77
