Aging up preventing saving

★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
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 but bowling
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Every time I play the game I can’t save or enter build/buy mode because it says a sim is aging up. There are no sims aging up!!!
What happens when the bug occurs? I can’t save and I lose progress!
What do you expect to see? I would hope to save/build in the game. There are also last exception files in the electronic arts folder. They appear when I try to save the game, they don’t seem to appear before that.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes

Re: Age up stuck and won't save or allow build

It happened to me, too, tonight.

After cca 5 hours of building house, decorating it and playing, it just didn't give me option to travel cause of sim aging up. So I baked a cake, aged up sim. Nothing. Made second sim adult from young adult. Still nothing. Google it, found this topic. Tried both hacks. NOTHING.

When do you plan fixing it??? It's too annyoing to happen after years and years. Makes me sad and angry. 

We paid for the game, you know.

A way that i fixed this was by getting my female sim pregnant then getting her to have the baby at the hospital. Fixed the issue immediately.

Hi @Stil_Puff

while this is a rather widespread issues since pets (hence I merged your post), an interaction with the gnome causing this is a bit weird.

Did you try that without mods/cc installed ?

Hi, thanks for the answer.

Nope, but I only use cc though, no mods. I will try even though all my sims will be bold and naked now ...

Do you still have a save shortly from before you get the issue ? If so, would you be willing to share it ?
