Checked this save. Seems to be a general issue related to the roof. 

 

Talked to user on Twitter.

@rbarkah do you know whether there has been any terrain manipulation used on the lot (i.e. ground made uneven by creating hills or valleys)?  We have an issue logged where using terrain manipulation and roofing can cause sim routing failures (see here).

Sims can't cook

★★★★ 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? 1.52.100.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get famous Seasons Cats and dogs City living Get together Get to work Strangerville Jungle adventure Parenthood Vampires Dine out Spa day Outdoor retreat My 1st pet Laundry day Toddler stuff Vintage glamour Kids room stuff Spooky stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have sim try to cook any meal in the oven.
What happens when the bug occurs? I tell my sim to cook, they get the ingredients out of the fridge and then immediately put it on the floor and wave their hand with the footprint bubble saying they can't get to the counter/stove.
What do you expect to see? Sims should be able to cook.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Started after the June 2019 patch.

I tried removing the pot rack, stove hood, and cabinets but the problem still occurred.

 

I next tried replacing the counters, fridge, and stove but the problem still occurred.

 

I removed everything from the room and put new counters, stove, and fridge but the problem still occurred. 

 

Moved the family to a new lot that was completely empty and put just a stove, fridge, and 3 empty counters outside and still had the same issue.

Re: Sims can't cook

I'm having no issues on either of the games. I think there's some cc still active in your game that causes this

 

 

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.
