So they actually disappeared ?

 

Are you using mods in your game ?

The computer just disappeared, yes.

 

The only mods/CC I use are simply hair additions for CAS, which I think shouldn't affect this much, if at all as I'm not using any of it for this family. I have GTW and GT expansion packs though.

I don't know if this bug was solved, but this just happened to me. I only have the base game, no mod. When I selected send to geo council, my sim went to sit in front of my 4k computer and it disappeared... It's very inconvenient when your career and moods ask you to code and play video games. On the plus side I now have to go to the library to do those thing, while socializing at the same time.

This is not something I could ever repro actually

Could you please create a new thread for this

This is a bit old and doesn't use the bug template.

This has just happened to me. Sent something to the geo council and my computer disappeared immediately after. It’s not in the inventory anywhere either
