Product: The Sims 4
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? 126.96.36.1990
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All but Batuu
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have multiple fires
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims immediately will whip out the extinguisher before the particles of the fire can even load.
What do you expect to see? Not that, unless the sim has the brave trait or something.
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
This happens consistently in every save game I have since either latest patch or the one before it. I tested this with a cursed lot trait & 8-sim household and nobody freaks out about the fire, they all immediately whip out the extinguisher. All 8 of them. The fire doesn't even have a chance to progress. I hope the change wasn't intentional, the game is already extremely easy so taking away any chaos that may occasionally spice things up is a horrible idea.
