[NEEDS INPUT] [IL] Island Spirits won't leave

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Polski
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.55.108.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Island Living, Get to Work, Get Together, City Living, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, Get Famous, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Dine Out, Vampires, Parenthood, Realm of Magic, Jungle Adventure, StrangerVille, Luxury Party Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Cool Kitchen Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Kids Room Stuff, Backyard Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Bowling Night Stuff, Fitness Stuff, Toddler Stuff, My First Pet Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a lot with Island Spirits trait. Wait for the spirit activity to start.
What happens when the bug occurs? The glowing swirly spirit things appear, but there's no spirit figure to interact with to make them go away and I'm stuck with a paranormal light show in the house.
What do you expect to see? I interact with the spirit figure, choose the desired option, the spirit activity stops and the swirly things are gone until next time.
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? No

Removing the trait from the lot did no help. Disabling mods did not help. Kicked out the family and had them move back in - also didn't help. Demolished the lot and replaced it with a previously saved gallery clone - spirits were gone when the lot was empty, but once the house was placed there again, multiple spirit figures appeared (pic: spirits2), but only one could be interacted with. Then they all left, but the swirly lights are still here (pic: spirits3).

 

I've had the Island Spirits appear in this house before and everything was just fine up until now.

@MelesInfelix Can you make the same happen on a fresh save that never saw any mods/cc ? Do they also glitch ?

Do you get them also if you place the house on a different lot ? To see if it's lot or house related ?

@crinrict I've created a fresh mod-free save recently to see what happens, it may take time for the bug to trigger. As I said before, the Spirirts visited me for about an in-game week before something broke.

 

And I've only just discovered one more thing, just a few minutes after making this thread. I replaced the lot with a cloned save of the same lot, but saved from a world state where it hasn't been lived in - and the spirits were gone. Then, just to check something, I put the cloned save of the spirit-infested lot in the brand-new, mod-free save - and got the bug again. So it seems like the spirits are somehow tied to the lot like objects, but for some reason cannot be removed like furniture or walls, etc.

 

The upside is that replacing the lot with a new one seems to be a solution... but the downside is that it would mean refurnishing the whole house, which I'd like to avoid.

 

(By the way, the lot in question is the one on the right to the Ohan'ali Beach.)

@MelesInfelix 

 

are you still having issues with this ? Do you still have the same that had the issue ?

 

Would you be willing to share your save with me ?

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

@crinrict I have a copy where the house is still full of spirits (I've placed a new house in the original file and overwritten it). I'll send you the link in a minute.

@MelesInfelix It does look like the swirling lights have become permanent on that lot. The question is if you can create the same situation with bugging the lot without mods installed.

I mean, I can see it's still happening even on a modless save but if the lot is bugged, it could have happened because of them and the house becomes permanently bugged.

Only thing that does seem to work is place it unfurnished and place all furniture again.

I'll refrain from adding this for now but I'll forward it with your save.

If anyone else has this happening, please let me know, especially if you don't use mods.
