[NEEDS INPUT] [DO] Food placed by customers in Restaurants

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

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? 1.54.120.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, Get To Work, Jungle Adventure, Dine Out, Romantic Garden Stuff, Holiday, Grim Ghoulish
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to a restaurant (any) and go dine out there (or work there if you own a restaurant), after a while you will notice something strange
What happens when the bug occurs? Multiple hamburgers are placed by a random sim.
What do you expect to see? Expect to not see other people (or my own, cant confirm this yet)'s food on the table when you go out to dine at a restaurant.
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. It happened after the recent patch; which had the issue with other customers eating other people's meals at a Restaurant.

So after a while, I cannot remember if it happens to your own sim as well, but I noticed some Sims will put their own food on the table, particularly hamburgers. It's not just a single hamburger but also multiple hamburgers on the table, enough to fill the table as well as other table (other customer's).

As the screenshot shown, the customer (guy with a mustache) placed several hamburgers on his own table as well as other people's. I have checked the burger's status it is owned by him.

I have also experienced certain cases where the food are rotten (green scent coming out) while the time i own a restaurant and was working there.

This also forced the Dine Out experience to be very displeasing (to me personally) and when owning a restaurant the waiting staff (and the owner) takes forever to clear out every dishes and after a while more are spawned again. The burger might not be hamburger (but vegetarian variation i cannot remember as i type this but i can sure i can replicate this problem again if i go out to dine again)

@tonyojimbo Wonder if that has anything to do with the grill stuff in inventory bug.

Do you play rotationally ? Are these Sims you ever played ? Have you ever seen food that wasn't grilling stuff ?

Also what kinds of mods/cc have you been using that you removed ?

I've attached a screenshot of the mods and cc I used / disabled at the time, they were not active when I was at the restaurant. It appears that the food are food from the grill, and typically vegetarian safe dishes like tofu dog, or burger...

 

But while i was testing this again, I also come across tables where they are not cleaned by the waiting staff at all; picture attached second.

 

it took me awhile to test the grilling food bug(?) so it seems that it doesnt happen as often and it was only that one time it happened twice in a row when I was working at a restaurant and then went to a restaurant to dine out.

@tonyojimbo Yeah, don't think those affect anything.

Let's see if others have this issue too.

@crinrict Yes. I believe this is related to the grilled food bug. All of the spoiled foods - whether in a community lot or residential, Sims will begin to drop them off individually. Filling up every single surface possible and causing the "uncomfortable" moodlet to nearby Sims.
