I was playing sims today and I wanted a sim to go cook but when he got the ingredients from the stove he acted like something was blocking it. I reset the sim, Reset the stove, Moved the stove, Sold it and bought it again, then lastly switched out the stove for a different one but nothing seemed to work. is there anything that could cause this issue? (also I can't remove CC cause that is my entire house pretty much and all my sims clothing)

 

EDIT (Crin)

 

Several causes have been identified

Going to mark this as fixed for now.

I made a new thread for the pot rack: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-A-Pot-Rack-causes-routing-issues-when-trying-to-us...

 

The counter issue has been fixed.

 

The rest is not a bug.

More info can be found here: https://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2019/01/sims-cant-cook-anymore/

If the solutions don't help, please provide your save games.

This happens to me when my sim tries to cook on the counters in the bathroom. Try deleting all bathroom counters, so the only counters in the house are in the kitchen.

Hi @RosiedroidYT

 

there's two possible causes for this

 

one would be as @LiaRose1435 said an issue with the Sims using far away counters as described in this report: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Sims-using-far-away-object-instead-of-close-one/m-p/64121...

 

The other issue would be cause by custom content like sofas and benches that are outdated with the cats & dogs patch. You can batch fix those with the S4Studio (Just google).

 

Please try both solutions and let us know what is causing the issue for you. I will then move your thread accordingly.

Do you have any other counters somewhere in the house that are maybe blocked with deco stuff or by locked doors ?

That doesn't matter :D

 

It will all be removed when I test and I'm used to naked, bald Sims.

 

If I don't get the issue on your game, you should test it on vanilla anyways, cause as mentioned in the how to post in this forum, bug reports need to be on non-cc/non-modded games.
