[FIXED] [V] 'Compel Deep Drink' action icon won't clear the action queue

[ Edited ]
Champion

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? 1.46.18.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a Vampire compel another Sim for a Deep Drink and then complete the action.
What happens when the bug occurs? The Vampire will not be hungry and will get experience points, but after they are finished drinking, the action icon in the action queue won't disappear! You can try to "X" it out but it remains. The only way to get rid of it is to travel to a different lot or to exit out of the game or to the Main Menu.
What do you expect to see? I expect the action queue to be clear of an action that has been completed, like it is for when my Vampires "Compel for a Small Drink" or when they ask for permission.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I'm not sure if this was always present or if it happened after a patch, Wondering but it has been going on for over a year.  Since it was just a nuisance, and not affecting my gameplay I have tried to ignore it.  It is most problematic if I'm playing for a long time and haven't left my lot or the area surrounding it, as the action icons begin to stack up in the queue.  But going any where that requires a loading screen will clear the queue, as will returning to the Main Menu or exiting the game and then starting it again. I don't' seem to have this problem if I ask for permission to drink or if I compel for a small drink -- it only seems to happen on the deep drink, where it happens 100% of the time!

  • Vampire Sims will no longer be forever Compelled for a Deep Drink. As much as that sometimes might be what Vampire Sims would be compelled to do, they don’t have to. So it is not something that they probably want to have in their interaction queue forever and all time. Forever is a long time...


Fixed in Patch 1.74.59/ 1.41

Sounds similar to the issues reported here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Garbage-Commands-and-Llama-Icons-Stuck-in-Queue/td-p/6460...

 

Do you have this with any other commands too ?

I can 100 % confirm this bug. I think it doesn't happen with any other interaction at the moment.

@crinrict, I have a bit of an update -- sometimes this also happens with the "Compel for a Small Drink" too, but never if I try to ask permission first!  Usually when I ask for permission and am declined, I will have my Sim go ahead and Compel for a Small Drink.  So I never realized that both of the "Compel" commands have the same problem of their actions not being cleared from the queue when they are completed.  OopsEmbarrassed  Sorry for the mistake!

The only time I've seen this is if I'm currently in a conversation with the target sim when I compel them for a drink.

This happens about 75% of the time with my vampires.  I also had the action fail until I reset sim.

 I've seen this happening since 2017... I just shift-click and reset my sim. Easy fix outside original posters "travel" solution.
