[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] Dead NPCs don't get replaced at acting lot

[ Edited ]
★★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Deutsch
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the actor career and wait until an elder co-actor dies on the set (which happens frequently).
What happens when the bug occurs? There is no way out of this situation for the played Sim. The game doesn't spawn a new actor, the scenes with the dead colleague can't be played and filming can't be posponed. The played Sim gets a bad review.
What do you expect to see? I expect the game to spawn a new actor.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

There was a similar report for no actors at the scene .. can't find it though atm.

What happens for you if you delete the NPC actors ? Do they not get replaced either ?

The problem only persists during the current filming session. The next time on the lot the game creates new actors. I can't delete actors during filming because the manage-world menu is greyed out.

 

I think this is simply a design flaw that was overlooked. Two solutions could  be possible:

 

1) Co-actors are immortal during filming (like I think suspects are in the detective career)

2) Dead co-actors are immediately replaced

Seems like this is an issue for all kinds of NPCs on the lot, not just co-workers.

Added this.
