[FIXED] Maid has issues if toy box is present

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Tested with a completely new game, new Sim, and no CC or Mods.

 

If there is a Toy Box in the house, the Maid will not leave, and just stand at the last place they cleaned / put an item away, and constantly twitch / reset, like they are stuck in a loop.  The work around is not having a toy box, but, where to put all those toys for the Toddlers!?!?!

  • Nannies, butlers, and maids should no longer stand idle for long periods of time after cleaning a toy box.


This issue was address in patch  1.33.38

 

Any feedback welcome

My maid was able to clean up the toys fine but she never finished her chores although the toys were cleaned up.

 

Moving the toy box to the household inventory solved this.

 

I will keep an eye on this in my own game but add for now

Yes, she cleans and puts away toys, she just won't leave when done.

For me it has been hit and miss so far but I could definitely see it

My maid dismissed themselves before done?

★★★★ Novice

I Had a lot of dirty things in my home so i called a maid. They cleaned like 3 things then left, a whole bunch of stuff still dirty. They did charge me. I Would call again but they take hours (sim time) to arrive. I also could have my sims clean but they always get tense after cleaning a couple things.

The maid's performance has always been spotty at best since release. Sometimes they get fixed, then regress.

Do you have a toybox in your home ? They seem to cause issues for maids

I'll give it a go. I've noticed the maid has idled in my house for the maximum duration allowed and cost a lot of money with little done. A shame if it turns out to be the toy box. Frown

 

Edit: Toy box seems to be the issue for me. Bah.
