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 think this is a bug, or if not it shouldn't happen anyway. Releasing a spirit is supposed to take the sims ghost completely away from the world, right? And still they are calling so often it gets irritating. And this happens to me with every dead relative, I keep their urns in my household inventory after releasing spirits and game treats them as NPCs in regards of them calling and inviting my living sims to bars and restaurants.


In the attached picture, there is couple of things that feel wrong to me:
1. The sim is dead and spirit released, they shouldn't be calling anyone anymore
2. The mom died literally that same day and she already is guilt-shaming her daughter for not loving her (message basically saying "I raised you with love and care, is it too much to ask to come visit and tell your dear mom at least occasionally that you love her back")

3. They lived in the same house. Where is she inviting her to come?!


*edit The second picture call happened immediately after the first one. To the other daughter this time

Re: Dead mom calls even after spirit being released

I've seen this on PS4. The released relative will call for a day or so after being released. It is very odd. It started happening after one of the patches, maybe in December, I don't remember exactly. 

I don't work for EA. I'm a player helping other players. I do not respond to PMs.
