I've had a similar issue with a bug for reacting in disgust. However instead of them doing it all the time randomly like most say, my experience with the reaction is it triggers my game to lag out when I try to cancel the reaction, she was reacting to someone declining her selfie or autograph. The first time I canceled it, she stopped moving and I went into chests and reset her. Then she continued on fine but It popped up again right after and I let her do it. And then she was fine. The second time I tried to cancel it I was In the stage area and it stopped all actions and everyone stopped moving. Then I reset her. And she couldnt do any action. Then I tried resetting a few other sims and it fixed itself. But then her react in disgust popped back up and I canceled again to see if that's what it really was. And then it completely froze the game :/
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
My Sim is a Global Superstar. She started to "React in Disgust" at level 3. She currently has no quirks, but has twice had and removed both "A Stan" and "No Touching". She has a "Pristine" reputation. As something of a control, her mother, who also has a pristine reputation, never advanced past Celebrity level 2 and never began to "React in Disgust".
The reaction seems to occur whenever anyone recognizes her. I had my sim wear her celebrity disguise to see if it had any effect. It does not. Sims still recognize her, and she continues to "React in Disgust" while wearing the disguise.
My two superstars and the 2 level 3 stars occasionally react in disgust even though no one else is in the room but the child of the two superstars appears in their queue. Also happens if he is in the room but so far it is only briefly there so I have not been able to test cancelling it.
My sim is global superstar
I think it started at proper celeb but not sure
She has the "no touching", the "Fan-mail", the "Paparazzi draling" and the "Refined palette" quirks
She reacts in disgust to everything - even her husband at home... sometimes after a woohoo but i don't know if we should blame her for that or not....
Hope this helps
I've noticed that it even happens to pets. My sims (1 at 2 stars, 1 at 5) have a dog, and the less famous sim reacts as normal to the dog, but my 5 star sim reacts in disgust to both his fiance (2 stars) and the dog. I guess its not the worst thing that could happen, because this reaction doesnt seem to be affecting their relationships, however it is annoying to see my sim act like that to the guy he just proposed to
This honestly just seems like another dumb mechanic/animation that EA/Maxis just threw in with no intention of explaining it. Or, it's meant to have a purpose, but they just didn't take into account that if it were to bug out, which it has, it would be another annoying aspect of the game that just takes you out of it.
