Could you finally bay the bills now? Or you just got the power back? Because my electricity isn't affected Frown

But I'm glad it worked for you!

A Trigger

★ Apprentice

I was able to trigger this while I had a bill to pay. At the time, only my power was shut off, but not water.

 

I went into "Manage Worlds" mode, and marked my household as unplayed (by clicking the green diamond in "Manage Household"), then immediately went to play the household. The option to pay bill wasn't available.

 

I hope it helps for bug fixing. For prevention in the meantime, if you have bills to pay, don't mark your household as unplayed.

Switch households and then switch back to normal household. Then you are able to pay the bills.

Hello.

I have a big problem when you play The Sims 4 game becomes unplayable after picking up mail from the mailbox. 2 times I had to demolish the house and build again and moved the family back to I solve the problem of an unpaid bill. Once again, to post to the mailbox and Sims will pick up the post which appeared in the "Inventory" envelope will not be opened and offered no action. game before offering to pay the bills, and when I clicked on "pay" so nothing has happened. After a time I turn off electricity and water and I can not even eat or wash. Consult me please as I have solved this problem. I do not want the game to return, I love her but I want to play.

Thank you and Have a nice day.

  • Fixed an issue that was causing the pay bills action to become unstable if the player queued up Pay Bills more than once in a row.

Something was fixed. Feedback appreciated.

Re: [Common] Bills can't be paid/Don't receive bills

★ Guide

As of today I still have a Sim from about a month ago who has an unpaid bill stuck in his inventory. No utilities have been cut off. The only option I have on the mail box is "Get Mail" and it's greyed out since nothing is getting delivered now. He's had a child since getting this bill in his inventory and it's made no difference.

I doubt that it fixes already bugged Sims.

 

Did you try the cheat households.force_bills_due ?
