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? 220.127.116.110
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? normal gameplay, it happens the whole time I am playing
What happens when the bug occurs? My sim will go to make the "de-stressing concoction" on every grill they can find in all areas there is a grill. Even with autonomy off.
What do you expect to see? I expect him to not make the same remedy over and over spontaneously ruining the game play.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Eco lifestyle or the June update
I even turn autonomy off and my sim will still spontaneously stop what they are doing and go make a "de-stressing concoction" on any grill. He doesn't have any herbalism skill at all, doesn't have the ingredients, has not discovered the walking stick and get not experience skill points from doing it. Sometimes he does finish making the remedy, but most times he stops and walks away leaving a pot on the grill. Does it 5 or 6 times in a few real life hours. Its always the same herbal remedy. I don't know how to stop it.
The Flower Bunny just tried making the de-stressing decoction and set my house on fire.
Please make it stop.
Make it stop.
Oh god, make it stop.
You can laugh. It is funny. :P
The irony of lighting themselves on fire while making a de-stressing remedy is not lost on me.
The De-Stressing Concoction is triggered by the Self-Sufficiency NAP. It should only be NPCs doing it (which I suppose would include the Flower Bunny, lol). Unfortunately, there's a bug where played Sims can pick up autonomous behaviours intended only for NPCs. It happens when a Sim is on a lot as an NPC (either visiting the active family, or just walking by, or being visited by the active family), and the player switches households. The NPC behaviours aren't cleared as they should be when the Sim leaves the lot normally, so they stick around (more or less) forever.
There are three ways that I know of to fix it:
Once your Sims are fixed, they can still possibly get "re-infected" any time you switch households (unless you use Simvasion's mods). Keep that in mind when playing with NAPs, especially with NPC voting on.

@PansekshuElle this is Answers HQ, a site where players help other players.
You've said you have the mod and it doesn't work - do you have the version from 10 June? That didn't include a fix for sims that had already been bugged out. The newer version from 17 June does - so if you haven't tried that yet, download it again give it a try. It was only released two days ago.
EDIT to add:
Update: this is what has been happening when my Sims actually try drinking the Decoctions. It's not a gif, the guy is raising his empty hand to his mouth over and over forever until I stop him. Anyone else?
so my sims are autonomously brewing herb potions and leaving them half way done on the stove and they dont have the herbs to do that, i can make them to finish doing it but is it normal?
