This is also happening to me and is making the game absolutely unplayable. It started happening immediately after the most recent update.

Time Speed Glitch?

★ Novice

Hey, since the update on 12/12/19 (MAC: 1.59.73.1220), I've had this obnoxious glitch with time speeds. Every time I try to use a speed lower than ultra, it almost immediately jumps back to ultra. This happens whether I use my keyboard to change it or if I click on it. I haven't had any problems with my keyboard otherwise and checked to make sure the 3 key wasn't sticky, so it seems to be an in game glitch. Has anyone else had this problem? It's not even that serious of a glitch but it's been driving me crazy!

Happening here, too. Cannot play the game at all. A quick look on twitter confirms it’s pretty widespread and is happening with or without mods, and with no real specific triggers. Hopefully they’ll put out a hot fix because with the holidays coming people will be playing a lot more and can’t

Happening in my game since last night. I had to end my game because I couldn't control what was happening. Don't know if my maid was there but the butler was. But I can say it was triggered as soon as my Sim's kids went to school.

Please, if you can't fix this fast, at least make a new update that lets us reverse from the previous update which brought this issue, so we can play the game, if possible.

@WizardJenkins I don't know if it's the same issue, but the same thing happens to me, but it only occurs when the maid comes over. There was a bug before that was fixed in this last patch, that ultra speed wouldn't work when the maids came over.

Since the 'fix' I have an issue similar to what you're describing. As soon as the maid arrives, ultra speed turns on on its own, and even when i go down to regular speed, ultra keeps coming on on its own until after the maid leaves.

This is happening in my game, but only when the maid comes over. While the maid is there the games goes ultra speed on its own, and I can't stop it. Once the maid leaves, I'm able to stop the ultra speed.
