[NEEDS INPUT] [DO] NPC Sims Not Eating in Restaurant

[ 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? 1.49.65
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? GTW, CL, GT, Dine Out, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Vampires, Bowling, Kitchen Stuff, Movie Hangout, Perfect Patio, Vintage Glamour.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim eat out in a restaurant and watch the npcs.
What happens when the bug occurs? The npc sims order food and then sit there and talk and never eat the food. They sit there for sim hours and talk and don't eat a bite. They do drink their drinks. This does not effect npc sims who dine with your sim.
What do you expect to see? Npc sims eating their food when dining in 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. Most recent patch.

Removed mods folder and cleared cache. Observed when my sim was on a date with npc (no objectives on date.)

Did this just happen once ? Did you test a different restaurant to see if you have the same issues ?

@crinrict  After posting, I did retest at a different restaurant (one formal dining, one casual, both with custom menus.) Same thing happened. One place it was the Jangs not eating, the other it was the Fengs. With the Fengs, I switched to manage worlds to play them, I wanted to see if they weren't eating becuase they are too full. Victor's hunger bar was in yellow, no reason he shouldn't be eating. Lily's was still green, but getting close to 50% hunger.

 

I also had weird glitches when I went into manage worlds in the restaurant, after I switched from my sim to the Fengs - is that normal? Never did manage world in a restaurant before. Hope I'm being clear, need coffee! Standard smile

Seems to work fine for me but it might just be very random as most issues at restaurants.

I'll add as needs input for more voices from others.

I just paid attention in my restaurant and definitely all NPCs are eating (if they don't jog).

 

However, sometimes certain restaurants have specific problems (e.g. waiters who never manage to clear the tables). Have you tried a different venue?
