[NEEDS INPUT] Auto-solving hygiene need causes Clean Objects instead

[ Edited ]
★ Pro

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.65.77.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Dine Out GP, Perfect Patio SP, Cool Kitchen SP, Movie Hangout SP, Backyard SP, Fitness SP, Laundry Day SP
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? have a dirty surface in the house. click auto-solve for a Sim's Hygiene.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sim will clean the dirty object instead.
What do you expect to see? Sim taking care of their Hygiene, as auto-solve is for personal needs.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

not sure if this started after the latest patch or i'm only noticing it now. this last Sim it happened to is Neat, however auto-solve should still mean 'take care of your needs' and not those of an object. i suppose it could have to do with the trait, though?

 

the dirty surface itself (a counter) wasn't even giving a negative moodlet since he was in another room. but clicking auto-solve on Hygiene prompted him to walk up and clean it. a second click did send him to the shower.

 

(i did see "auto-solving Hygiene causes Sims to get a drink" but didn't post there as didn't seem like a collection post.)

@unseenlarks The post "Auto-solving Hygiene causes Sims to get a drink" was by me and I noticed another bug with this: Auto-solving hygiene also causes sims to go to the talking toilet (if there is one on your lot) and perform the interaction "Use and Sanitize" on it (there is a shower in the same room though).

I think that we can create a collection post for this because there are multiple issue with this.

@crinrict--the post title was accurate. it's auto-solving Hygiene that's causing the issue, not Energy.

@unseenlarks Sorry, too much c/p. Wanted it to have the same format as the other auto-solving issues

Happy Gaming
