Re: [OPEN] NPC invites occur on wrong lot

★★★ Novice

Just started experiencing this as well. 


Have about 90 hours of play time with no mods or cheats and this bug never happened until now.


Not sure if it's related but last night I went on vacation to Selvadorada just to check it out but I didn't save the game.


Honestly I was hesitant to even do that because it seemed to me it would cause problems but I thought "why am I being so paranoid this game can't be that broken". 


So yeah not sure if it was that.


But also **sidenote** I reloaded my game and sent a "happy text" to get an invite. Accepted the invite but this time selected to bring a friend along and I traveled to the correct location. This might be a workaround but I don't always want to bring friends along .

Since the last update I've been having this issue as well. I don't use mods or custom content. It's really annoying when my sim gets asked out on a date to a nice restaurant but instead we're whisked away to an empty lot. I hope they fix this like yesterday. For now i'm selecting no to all invites which really sucks.

This has been happening to my Sims for a while now, and in my last game I ended up in the jungle and could not get home.  This bug is not a huge problem, in that it's not preventing me from playing, but it's very inconvenient to expect to be at one venue and end up at another.

This is happening to me also! Ever since Get Famous came out. I thought it was fixed, but it's definitely not. Every time I'm invited out somewhere, I end up somewhere completely different.

Re: BUG: NPC events arriving at wrong venues

★★ Apprentice

I just want to mention that this bug is still happening. Every time I am invited somewhere, I end up going somewhere completely different. I think by random chance I ended up where we were supposed to go ONCE. Otherwise it's a roll of the dice... And it's usually places I don't want to go. I got invited to a date at nice restaurant and ended up at once of those 10x15 parks... Frank + Beans on the grill and a swing set isn't my idea of a fancy night out. Why did I wear my tux!?

Is anything being done about this bug? I seem to get it just about every time my sims are invited to most venues and it is tiring and annoying. Started a new game, immediately the same problem again.

Me too. I have this issue whenever my sim is asked to go somewhere. They never go to the right lot.
