[FIXED] [CD] Fishing Sign backwards in Deadgrass Isle

[ Edited ]

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have sim travel to Deadgrass Isle in Brindleton Bay and head for the beach near the Lighthouse.
What happens when the bug occurs? The fishing sign at the beach is pointing in the wrong direction, causing the sim to fish on land.
What do you expect to see? The fishing sign should be pointed at the ocean, so that the fishing animation looks normal.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. New with Cats and Dogs expansion (in Brindleton Bay)

Here is an image of the problem:

 Sims now face the right direction when fishing in Brindleton Bay. The water is thataway!


Fixed in Patch 1.44.77

 

I hope all instances are fixed. I didn't test.

 

If anyone still has issues, feel free to come back.

Didn't find this in the compiled list but did by searching the site.  LOL, couldn't imagine this not being spotted before now.

 

Err, fishing in the sand in fully patched game on 12/29/17.

I have that problem as well. But I also have a problem on another shore near the lighthouse where my sim is not able to fish. She only gives the something is in the way sign and I wonder why since its supposed to be a fishing spot.

Hi!
So this was reported this on the Swedish version of http://forums.thesims.com, so I checked it out and found that they were right (thanks Lena!).

Thought that it belonged better here than there. Should be easy-fixed, the sign is probably just too far out or the area where the sim can walk should be extended. Or remove the fishing sign, that's also an option :P

Here are some pictures of area and location

@BryonyRae

Maybe they never actually wanted us to fish on Deadgrass Isle! Frown
