Re: grounding a teen sim from phone caused them to have to do everything stealth

Parent Sims, were your Teens misbehaving? You grounded them, but they keep doing mischievous things? We have fixed an issue with Teens misbehaving stealthily while Grounded via the Phone. My parents grounded me in person, but hey, whatever works.

Fixed in Patch 1.72.28/ 1.39

If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.

@hamiltonlb yeah I'm experiencing this right now too and it's getting very annoying. The sim being reprimanded can't even do basic needs, especially in front of their parents.

buff_Grounded_Controllers_No_Phone has no interaction tag filter (unlike other grounded controller buffs). I assume this bug only occurs if your Sim is grounded from using their phone, right?

@kusurusu That's what it originally said in the title but I had to adjust that cause there was no room.

I'll see if there's a way to add that info back.

I am not sure if it happens while grounding from other things as I am in the middle of a 100 baby challenge and that is something I can ground them from that doesn't normally interfere with my game play. but I will try another option next time.

This just happened to my teen sim too. Nothing seems to fix it and now shes very tense just because she had to do her homework stealthily... I did just get the latest update and downloaded the snowy escape pack so that might have something to do with it I guess

Parenthood grounding glitch

★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Expansion Packs: Discover University, Island Living, Get Famous, Seasons, Cats & Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work Game Packs: Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Outdoor Retreat Stuff Packs: Laundry Day Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? With the Parenthood stuff pack, you are able to ground children for one thing e.g phone, tv. When you go to ground a child from one thing (I did phone), for any action that sim can perform at all (even going somewhere or eating) it says ‘.... stealthily’ instead of only the thing you ground them for.
What happens when the bug occurs? When I ground my child from one thing (example: phone) any action (such as going somewhere or eating) it says ‘(action) stealthily..’ and then the child gets reprimanded every time they do something.
What do you expect to see? All actions should be normal and they should not get reprimanded. Only the thing I grounded them for should come up with ‘stealthily.’
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Unable to attach screenshots I took.

I've noticed that children are suddenly being very stealthy about everything once they have been grounded. Even for doing homework. I don't recall this being an issue before

I've had the same problem. It only occurred after Snowy Escape. I do have mods, and I've cleared out mods, and it still occurred.
