[NEEDS INPUT] [ECO] Save File Freezes When Community Vote Ends

[ 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? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Eco Lifestyle, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, Discover University, Get Famous, Island Living, City Living, Get to Work, Get Together, Realm of Magic, Strangerville, Parenthood, Jungle Adventure, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Dine Out, Vampires, Tiny Living, My First Pet Stuff, Laundry Day Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Holiday Celebration Pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I honestly am not sure. Currently it is only one save that is having this issue.
What happens when the bug occurs? When the community vote ends from Eco Lifestyle time, needs and sims freeze. Everything else still moves on. Trees move in the wind, TV plays, cars drive down the road, and the sky changes color like time is still passing.
What do you expect to see? The community vote should end and I get a notification stating what the vote is.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. When I installed Eco Lifestyle

I have tried removing my mods and custom content to see if that will work and I have also tried playing other households. Neither work. I can play other saves and they work just fine.

@kelseypayge I tested this save and it took a moment, then like 3 sims aged up and after that they were unfrozen.

Have you tried resetting your user folder and just putting back your save and nothing else ?

It does that cause I had a mod that controlled the age spans. Did you wait till 6pm and see the community vote end? And how do I do that?

@kelseypayge Since everyone was frozen when I loaded the save, I thought that was the issue.

I'll check it again tomorrow.

Here's the current list for broken mods/cc https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/976565/broken-updated-mods-cc-june-20-eco-lifestyle-patc... so do make sure you update those if you use any.
