[NEEDS INPUT] [CD] Endless Return from Daycare Notifications

[ Edited ]
★ 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? 1.68.156.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them except Journey to Batuu
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Take a toddler on vacation
What happens when the bug occurs? I get endless notifications that my toddler has returned from daycare, even though he is on vacation with the rest of his family.
What do you expect to see? No notifications because he was not at daycare
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. The 11/20/2020 EA patch

I took a Sim family on vacation to Mt. Komorebi. Every 30 seconds-1 minute, I get a notification that the toddler in the family has returned from daycare when on the rental lot. Out of the house on the mountain there are not notifications, but as soon as he returns to the lot, I get many. Then they reoccur until he leaves the lot again. I saw this happened with Jungle Adventure, as well. I removed all of my mods and CC and it still happened. This has been happening since last night, which was the first time I'd played since the latest patch.

@parryotter So I just tested this with my save and can't duplicate.

Were your toddlers at daycare when you went on vacation ?

Thee used to be an issue with this but that's supposed to be fixed so the JA issue you saw, was that a while ago or after Nov patch ?

@crinrict No, they were not at daycare. This is from the latest patch.

@parryotter And you get it every time ?

Can you delete the following files from your doc folder (no worries, they recreate)

- notify.glob
- localthumbcache.package

I encountered the same problem today. Though I thought it's about my pets! I tried 3 families with a toddler to go on vacation. One family no pets - and no problem. The second family has cats - went on vacation and left the cats at home then I got the endless notif about the toddler returning from daycare. The third family has dogs - went on vacation and took the pets with them as well and I do not seem to have the said endless notifications.

Hi!!

 

I'm having the same issue as well ("soandso has returned from daycare" repeated notifications - despite clearly being on the lot), since the most recent patch.

 

I tried quitting the game and Origin and then clearing the caches, plus deleting the files that you had suggested, and it still kept filling up the side of the screen. I finally had to send the poor tot home to be with a nanny and the dog, because it was getting extremely distracting!

Hello! Try bringing the pet dog with you during vacation. It worked for me! I did not receive a single notif about returning from daycare. I did this just yesterday my sim family went on the snowy mountain for vacation for like a week and no problem at all. 

 

Another option is using a mod "Spend the weekend with" I get rid of my pet to be with another family while I go on vacation. They will be gone from my household list and I can go on vacation with my toddler and I didn't encounter the endless notification as well.

I do have a pet cat and I brought her on the vacation, but this bug stills happens.

So I was able to duplicate this but only if I had a pet in the household and left the toddlers at home.

Maybe there's some other constellations as reports seem to vary.
