[FIXED] [DO] Sims Taking Other Diner's Food

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.52.100.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Famous, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work Jungle Adventure, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat Laundry Day Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Kids Room Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Movie Night Stuff, Spooky Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go out to eat at a restaurant and leave your food unattended.
What happens when the bug occurs? Any other Sim at the restaurant who isn't busy eating their own food (like the many that are just standing around instead of sitting at their own table) will just come and take any food that's lying around.
What do you expect to see? Sims who are out to eat, should be sitting at their own tables and only eating their own food.
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. The patch on June 18, 2019.

My Sims who eat out at restaurants have been constantly getting their food stolen if they ever leave it unattended, or even if they just don't immediately start eating it as soon as it's delivered.

 

Other Sims at the restaurant, especially those who are just standing around talking for some reason, will not hesitate to just pick up and eat food that doesn't belong to them.

  • Random Sims will no longer steal your Sim’s food and eat it.


Fixed for PC  in Patch 1.54.120


This issue is still open for Console players.

Free-for-All At Restaurants!

★★★★ Novice

So, it's the Night Out holiday and my Sim family went to a restaurant for dinner. At the restaurant, the kid and the husband decide they didn't want to wait, so they stole food from another table. Not cool, but I can direct them away from it. They wait until the food is delivered... and then someone steals their food! WHILE THEY'RE EATING IT! Is this a new issue? Hopefully it doesn't affect all restaurants, since I like having my Sims eat from time to time, but not when they have to fight for their food...

 

(though, now that I think about it, that's a pretty interesting idea for a theme restaurant)

When my sims dine out at a restaurant, other sims take their plates and sometimes other sims take the plates from the one who took my plates. The ones that take the plates are other diners who are sitting down. When I tried to take my plate back in build mode, another diner came and took my plate away.

Re: [NEEDS INPUT/A] [DO] Sims Taking Other Diner's Food

★★★★ Novice

My sim has been to the restaurant three times and had her food stolen 5 times (it happened three times during her first visit). They will steal it before they eat (2x), while they're eating (2x), and when they're in the bathroom thinking about eating it (1x). I have found you can steal it back if you act fast enough and know who stole it, but only for the sims you can control. On a date with an NPC, your date is out of luck. One of the "before she was eating it" thefts happened while my sim was taking the picture of experimental food.

 

The visit where it was stolen three times, all three times were by the same sim. Also, the only ones that stole food on mine had been shown to their table first. The paparazzi and fans who were standing around in the restaurant haven't tried yet.

Yes, I noticed this as well now, this was not the case before the June 18th Patch (PC 1.52.100.1020), sims will walk up to your table and grab a plate, even if you had eaten some of it.
