  • Fixed an issue where Vampires were failing to route when directed to perform the Dark Meditation and Influence Emotions powers.

Fixed in Patch 1.53.115

 

Console Players please use this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/PS4-XB1-Dark-Meditation-causes-routing-failure/m-p/8027033

 

Going to lock it as it keeps getting bumped by console players.

Prior to today, the vampires always meditated with no problem. Now, even on older saved games, they just shrug and get a ? over their heads.

Same issue only started after patch, I've tried repairing my game, reinstalling and removing + disabling all CC.
Most of my main sims are vampires so I've tried it with different saves, households etc and it stays the same.

Latest patch

After the patch i can't use the Vampire ability "Dark Meditation" anymore. i also had problems with making food while in the vampire turning phase.

 

I have made a new character. it still happens.

 

I used the repair game-files option and it still happens.

Champion

There seems to be a new test set added to the global tests for the Dark Meditation interaction by this patch in preparation for the wading in water stuff in Island Living.

 

    <V t="test_set_reference">
      <T n="test_set_reference">214011<!--testSet_InWater_NotInWater_TargetSim_Tooltip--></T>
    </V>

This seems to cause a routing failure because it looks for a target sim to test, but Dark Meditation is an action performed on self and not on another targeted sim.

 

I replaced this test set reference with another one I found in the new patch which performs the test on the sim itself:

 

    <V t="test_set_reference">
      <T n="test_set_reference">213995<!--testSet_InWater_NotInWater_Self--></T>
    </V>

This seems to get Dark Meditation working again, while presumably keeping it able to automatically hide if you're wading in water (although it doesn't have the tooltip saying "you can't use this while in the water").

 

If anyone wants the working mod fix, you can Google search for the mod page on my WordPress blog using the search terms "simvasion sims 4 mods" or there's a thread called "Vampires can't use dark meditation any more?" in the General Discussion board on the Official Sims 4 forums with a direct link.
