What do you expect to see? I know for certain that in April of 2022 if a played sim in an inactive household died, the urn could be found at the front door. I used this to create generational cemeteries in a game at the time.
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. Installed patches and base game updates form 4/17/22 to 06/22/22 as well as the Werewolves Game Pack

I know for certain that in April of 2022 if a played sim in an inactive household died, the urn could be found at the front door. I used this to create generational cemeteries in a game at the time. I stopped playing for a couple of months and came back with the Werewolves Game Pack. Now the played sim in the inactive household does not leave behind an urn or tombstone. This is very distressing as I like to "retire" my sims to a retirement home when they become elders, then I go to the household when a played active sim is notified of death and move the urn to a "Simetery" i almost always have build in Newcrest. I cannot do this anymore. To have all the ancestors stay in the active household till they die of old age will fill up the family very quickly.

@dragonflysara To be sure, the Sim died of old age and not a Neighborhood stories accident ?

@crinrict ,

 

It has been tested in two games and on 5 sims total. They were all elders. Odds are at least one would have been of old age. Also, I thought Neighborhood stories were disabled in played households.

 

I also thought the first couple of sims were maybe off the lot when they died. But again all 5 is very not probable.
