[NEEDS INPUT] [GF] NPCs leave work lot making it impossible to perform

[ 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? 1.47.49.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Famous City Living Get Together Get to Work Vampires
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Unknown
What happens when the bug occurs? In Sims 4 Get Famous ever since I got to 5 star celebrity and I go to work in the acting career there is a big crowd around me when I arrive and then some of the actors leave the set. Because of this I can not perform some, or all, of the scenes. When I try to interact with the acting marker on the ground of the set there is no interaction.
What do you expect to see? Everyone who works on the set should stay on the set.
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

I have tried re-booting the game, and I have tried "invite sims to current lot" option on the phone with the actors chosen and it does nothing. I have also tried the repair option on Origin

Hi @jmilligan4

 

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

yeah, before I tried what you had recommended I thought I would try tweaking a few things myself. With cheats I lowered my sims celebrity to 4 stars, which did nothing. Then I lowered their reputation from pristine back to neutral and that seems to have done the trick. Even got back up to 5 stars and having no problem

So maybe it has something to do with a pristine reputation ?

Putting this on the test list

My Sim has now prestige reputation, acting career 10 and fame 10 .. still can't get this to happen.

 

Anyone willing to share their save game ?


If so, please zip your saves folder and upload it somewhere like dropbox,, googledrive or OneDrive and PM me the link.
