[FIXED] [BNSP] NPC Bowling basements no longer Attracting Sims

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

I've noticed other people complaining and I've noticed in my game as well that bowling lanes in basements of bars are no longer attracting NPC sims to bowl. I decided to investigate and realised it was happening to my basement nightclub bowling venue as well. If the 4 lanes of bowling are on a main floor of a bar or nightclub then NPC's are attracted right away, but in a basement they no longer are. This was working either before the last update or before I purchased the Fitness pack. Not sure which timeline. My workaround until fixed is moving all lanes to the main floors of those venues. Thank-you.

Sims should now choose to bowl at underground bowling lanes… If you were to build an underground bowling alley.
  • Where were you last night?
    • I was at… the… club.
  • You were at the underground bowling alley… weren’t you!?
    • No… it was the… dance club.
  • Why are you wearing a blue and pink polyester shirt that says Bubbas Bowling League?
    • It was polyester shirt night?


Fixed in Patch 1.33.38

Hi @ruralfpsgamer

 

does this also apply to clubs or just normal NPC bowling ?

I made a bowling league club and removed my active sim from it to test and they wouldn't show up in the basement lanes either. Only the active sims would see the lanes and use them occasionally. No other sim would use the lanes unless they were on the main floor. When I originally installed the bowling pack and made the basement 4 lane venue it worked fine and all sims active or not used it without issue. Not anymore. Tried on a new save as well. Same issue. Thanks.

I'm guessing this EA latest patch from their patch notes is the culprit.

 

"Sims will no longer attempt to bowl at inaccessible bowling lanes."

 

Are basements considered inaccessible bowling lanes now?

I don't think so, does sound like a bug. I'll add it on the next round
