[FIXED] [S] Random NPCs enter/leave via fireplace

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Apprentice

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? 1.52.100.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions and packs almost all stuff packs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Sulani-Lani St Taz Area 50x50 Empty Lot
What happens when the bug occurs? I have created a new house on that lot and i moved my current family to Sulani after moving the Vendors started using my house they are appearing on the third floor and they are going to their Vendor shop through my house on the end of their shift again they are entering my house and disappearing on the third floor.
What do you expect to see? They should choose another route for their work instead of appearing/disappearing inside of the house
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I am not sure if this started after the latest patch because i was waiting for Island Living so i am not sure if it is from the patch or Island Living

After installing Island Living i wanted to try the game and check the new world i decided to use my current family that i have on my old save before the latest patch. I wanted to use the 50x50 lot on the Lani St Taz area so i replaced my old house that i was using at Willow Creak on that lot after moving the house and my current family i have realized that the vendors instead of appearing outside of the lot they started appearing inside of my house. When the shift starts the Vendor appears on the third floor he or she is using the stairs to go outside and they are running to their shops at the end of their shift they are using the same route so they are returning to my house they are using the stairs and they are disappearing on the third floor Standard smile

Vendors will no longer use your Sims’ fireplace as an imaginary portal to mysterious places.

Fixed in Patch 1.58.63

Sims left by fireplace

★★★★ Novice

A sim had a club meetup at their home.  After the meetup all the sims on the lot left by the fireplace.  I guess the fireplace is now a portal to leave a lot?? 

 

P.S.   I have no cc or whatever.

Well, this is quite a funny bug. If this bothers you, try to fix the game on Origin,

Yeah, since the Seasons holidays hit, many Sims experiencing Winterfest have come to be Santa wannabes. Did they leave presents before they disappeared up the chimney? If not, don't worry about it too much; they may just need more practice. You might need to report it as a bug though if your roof caves in from the weight of all their reindeers.

 

(Sorry, I just couldn't resist. Some bugs really are game changers!)

I’m not sure if this counts, but I added a restaurant to this same lot and Sims were leaving via the fireplace. I don’t have a save to share unfortunately, as I experienced other problems in that save and ended up starting over.

Hi @Kita5399

 

 

don't think this is related to the thread you posted in so I've merged with this one in tech.

 

I think a proper bug report would be good though.

 

Just create a new thread in the bug forum.

For me, this is a normal sims behavior now. Half of my Sim's guests leave his house by the fireplace. I rather enjoy it.

Hello @anoses 

 

Are you able to see this issue with an empty Mods folder?
