Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 188.8.131.520
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All EPs. All GPs except Vampires. All SPs except Toddler Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? All I know about how to trigger the bug is that your sim must be swimming and then you either exit to manage worlds or you cut to another sim who isn't around. Like, if Sim 1 is at home while Sim 2 is at the beach swimming. You would switch control over to Sim 1 while Sim 2 is swimming then pull Sim 2 over to Sim 1 by using the bring "sim's name" here.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim shivers and turns blue for an extended period of time. The moodlet says Sudden Chill (From Swimming) - a sudden cold spot in the water envelopes "sim's name". The moodlet occurs even when a sim is not swimming.
What do you expect to see? I only expect to see my sim cold from swimming when she is actually swimming.
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? Neutral/Not Sure
Basically, Tessa, my sim, becomes light blue and shivers at random times. I check and the moodlet says from swimming. Moodlet solvers do fix the problem temporarily but do not permanently fix the problem. The problem started after Tessa went swimming the ocean and I cut back to her husband, Griffith, who was at home. I brought Tessa home and the next sim morning, she got cold from swimming even though she had just woken up. She remained blue for about 3-5 minutes before returning to her normal skin tone. The moodlet never leaves even though it is only supposed to last for two sim hours. (I did remove the cc / mods, but after seeing that problem persisted, I added it back)
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 Sulani sim went to a cafe in Windenburg during winter, in her party wear. she got the sudden chill moodlet long before she got the regular sim is cold moodlet. put her in cold weather moodled but the sudden chill one stayed. she hasn't been swimming for a sim week.
One of my Sulani sims went to the beach during the spring time, but did not swim or even go near the water at all. She was in her Everyday outfit, not Swimwear. When she began to leave to go home, she got the "Sudden Chill" moodlet and turned blue. The moodlet was still there when she loaded at her home lot.
Her traits are Snob, Romantic, Materialistic, and Domestic. Her Aspiration is Successful Lineage. She has level 3 fitness skill.
My 2nd generation matriarch for my 100 baby challenge went to Sulani, swam for a few sim minutes, and now has this moodlet off/on ever since (more than 100 sim days) and she's never been back to Sulani. She was created (born) before I bought IL. I've moved on to my 3rd generation matriarch and when my 2nd gen visits, she still shivers and turns blue at least once an hour. It doesn't appear life threatening, just kind of a pain to work around. Traits - Perfectionist, Geek, Family Oriented. Aspiration - Bestselling Author. Fitness level 7.
My sim was visiting Sand Simoleon beach in Lani St. Taz
and exited Aqua Zip (owned by beach) outside of the lot
(rendering aqua zip too impossible to delete)
I tried to get him on land but he didn't respond to commands
so I reset him and the aqua zip many times
ultimately getting him swim on land.
He was still not answering to most of the commands that related to multitasking or sitting
but I managed to get him back to home lot (Admiral's Wreckage) after some tries
and everything seemed to be fine.
Until he started to get cold spot in the water multiple times a day,
while being on land. Freezing blue.
I did also try moving him to different lots in the world and giving him Iceproof trait
but it didn't seem to change anything.
Only thing I have been able to do to help him
is to make him take bath the second buff appears
since it gets rid of tense buff
(and ultimately helps him to not freeze dead)
none of my other sims have had the problem
not even the ones that were on beach with him
I have it happen too, and he is now never in water when it happens, and I know it says chill is from water haha
I am just glad he is not dying from it
This affects only one of my Sims living in Sulani, she was a lifeguard and is now a conservationist.She can turn blue several times everyday any season despite having the cold acclimation and waterproof traits. The first time it happened she was swimming, but now it’s anywhere, anytime.
