Product: The Sims 4
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? 4
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work. Get Together. Get Famous. Cats and Dogs. Seasons. Island Living. City Living. Jungle Adventure. Outdoor Retreat. Vampires. Strangerville. Spooky Stuff. Romantic Garden. Laundry Day. Toddler Stuff. Vintage Glamour
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Make sure game is updated for Nov '19 patch that has Discover University household merge options. (I think this is what is causing it) 1) Live mode: Have a sim get married or be super friendly to another and choose the Move into Household option when it comes up in live mode. Move all of one household into another. Select Sell furnishings. 2) Manage Worlds: Merge two households. Select sell furnishings.
What happens when the bug occurs? 1) Live mode: a)No credit given for sold furnishings or lot value, just current household funds from merged household. b)About 2/3 of the time, the furnishings stay in the household inventory, other times they just dissapear into the void. c)All sim portraits dissapear. d)MCCC gives a Last exception report and a script error when installed. If MCCC is not installed, game will crash. e)About 50% of the time it crashes the game. f)Approximately 1/4 of the time it prevents my sims from traveling via the M key. I tried this the first few times when the portraits disappeared in the hopes they would come back. Had to go to Manage Worlds once and then go back into the household g)some sims become pixellated in live mode. Only happened once and only with the new household members. 2) Manage Worlds: a)No credit given for sold furnishings or lot value, just current household funds from merged household. b)About 2/3 of the time, the furnishings stay in the household inventory, other times they just dissapear into the void.
What do you expect to see? Well I expect it to work just fine without the problems state above.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The Discover University patch from Nov '19 where you can separate just one member of the household and control flow of funds. That's the big issue. Someone at EA needs to look at that code because it doesn't work properly and it messes up completely merging households.
I have tried with and without MCCC. Immediately after the patch, I did not have MCCC installed for about a week. The game crashed a lot because of this. Then I put it back in and I get a lot of Last Exception Reports for random things, but especially this. And I got a Script Error a few times.
No custom content.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
