[NEEDS INPUT] [CD] Robot Vacuum always heads outside

[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

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? 1.46.81.020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All EP's GP's and SP's
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Using a robot vacuum on a ground level without foundation.
What happens when the bug occurs? The fully upgraded vacuum always heads outside to do who knows what, which means that it never actually cleans anything inside, also when it rains, it means that it is constantly broken.
What do you expect to see? I expect the vacuum to roam the interior of my home and pick up the waste on the floor.
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? No

Hi @Simming_Spoonie

 

does it only happen with the fully upgraded one for you ? My not fully upgrade one does go outside occasionally but it's not that bad that it doesn't clean anything else.

 

Going to tag as Needs Input for now to see if others see this as well.

I see that sometimes aswell. Sometimes it returns but then the loading station is blocked even when its perfectly accessable.

Sameee! I recently moved my sims house to a different town, from palm springs to the town that came with the cats and dogs expansion. 

I had no problem with the roomba ever going outside in palm springs but now. Everytime it goes outside to clean what? Who knows. And I can't figure out why it's doing this. Surely it knows it's outside.

@Ryannfayythe Could be something about the house itself. Does it only happen in that particular one ? Does it depend on the neighborhood ?

This happens to me with fully upgraded vacuum cleaners in all households.

I have the same problem except I have a split level house with the new platform tools and my robot vacuum hopped the different levels and then went outside and stopped and wouldn't go back to it's dock when command by my sim. I had to manually do it in build mode...

@WildNerd12 Yes, this also happens in my game - the part when they stop half-way and won't return to the dock. It's very annoying...
