Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 188.8.131.520
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All Packs, Expansions, and Stuff except My First Pet Stuff, Toddler Stuff, and Laundry Day Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to Work as a Doctor and have the "Outbreak!" special event occur. (For me it happened as a Chief of Staff) If one of the Patients ends up being a Vampire, the Vampire will not be able to be interacted with with the "Treat Sick Sims" interaction, essentially making the special event impossible to complete.
What happens when the bug occurs? One of the patients that needs to be cured is not able to be cured. Your Sim will animate to try and encourage the Sim to "stand up" but the Sim they need to cure is already standing, and will not trigger the playable Sim to actually cure them.
What do you expect to see? The sick Sim to allow the active Sim to cure them, fulfilling the need for the special Outbreak event.
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
(See details above.)
(I am curious if this is as a result of the sick Sim being a Vampire, and since work happens during the day, the Sim is not animating properly because they want to escape the sun?)
This sounds similar to what I experienced on the second Outbreak I encountered, where the afflicted Sims were not able to be interacted with until they actually walked to the lot and collapsed; the only troublesome part was that the Vampire Sim (This was on the first experience) that spawned never walked to the lot to get into "position" so my Doctor sim could cure them, making it impossible to finish the event.
