Vampire Sims Can't Use Dark Meditation After Patch 1.52.1

★★★★★ 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? 1.52.1
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions, all game packs except Outdoor Retreat & Strangerville, stuff packs: only Laundry Day.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a Vampire Sim try to use Dark Meditation.
What happens when the bug occurs? The Sim will wave around confused and a question mark will appear in a thought bubble.
What do you expect to see? Dark Meditation being used (the Sim hovering in the air and their energy restoring). ‌
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. This problem only started for me after updating to 1.52.1. I uninstalled all mods, checked the issue vanilla, and it still occurred. I've checked all my mods for updates as well and updated the ones that had updates, and removed the broken ones.

I found another user in the comment section of this SimsVIP post with this issue: https://simsvip.com/2019/06/18/the-sims-4-new-game-patch-june-18th-2019/ (attaching screenshot of the comment as well).

I'm having this issue too. Is this going to be fixed with a follow update? I have no idea how to do any manual updating.

I am also having this problem.

 

In addition, my vampire sim cannot Control Emotions since the patch. Both abilities were working fine yesterday before I updated the game to the most recent patch.

 

I have no mods installed (never have, this is a clean install for a legacy challenge).

Same here. I have far fewer expansions and don't mod or cheat. Its frustrating to log in to find that my vampire sims can't meditate, can't control emotions.

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.


Merged your post with existing bug report on the issue.
