I just created a bug report on this. The trespassing options are not working. I disallowed all four options and the minute my back was turned, everything had reset. I held a yard sale outside my house and indoors looked like I had a party going on. It also took awhile for the send home option to appear.

Heya - I’m having the exact same issue but I forgot to put in a detail! My sim is a celebrity too - it’s not paparazzi that come in though. It always the option to “greet fan” or “sign autograph” although the intruding sim is not labelled as a fan.

This happened to me as well, it seemed like I was supposed to be getting an "inspection" as my landlord came in with a yellow suit on. But then Geoffrey Landgraab also showed up and they both kept grabbing water from my fridge over and over. I had no "send home" option but they did go away after a while. I just had to wait it out. After they both left, I got a pop up saying that I "passed the inspection" and a tip about sorting garbage.

@crinrict This is the same bug that appeared during Island Living and was later "fixed". It appears to be back.

The "Send home" option is there and works, albeit with a bit of a delay.

But sims just randomly walk into and through the houses all willy-nilly. Lol... I even had one walk in the back door, through the house, and stop INSIDE the house and knock on the front door (from the INSIDE).

People just keep on coming in. I keep sending them away, but it just keeps happening.

And the new "Disallow" feature is useless. It keeps getting reset.

Same issue here, but with a house. I've had three sims come in now without permission. One did so twice. None of these sims were even previously known by household residents. I'm in Evergreen Harbor.

I had the similar issue when playing Greenburg household from Evergreen Harbour.

They were having dinner and suddenly Darling Walsh from City Living decided to come into the house and join the dinner too. She went back home by herself later one.

 

The occurrence is somewhat weird but funny at the moment.

 

I did not consider this to be a serious bug because i had it only once throughout my first 5 hours after the patch and installation of Eco Lifestyle.

@Psychotps I know we had this before but the new options are supposed to fix it in another way. So there should be a send home and the options on the door should disallow stuff like that (and yes, the resetting is a bug)

My guess is, that the system they added with IL friendlyness is very fragile so they choose this option.

So, the Sims pouring in would probably still be an issue but the question is, can you resolve it now with the door options and the send home

So questions to everyone

- Do you have the send option
- Did you disallow trespassing (resets on travelling)

@crinrict I have the send option but only for sims that I invited or I agreed to let them in and disallow trespassing is resetting after travelling or changing family.

@maysbat and if you reset it it doesn't keep them from coming ?
