Hi @LonelyFew

 

haven't hear of that one.

 

Are you using any custom content or mods in your game ? If so, have you tried without for testing purposes ? Are you ever given the option to hire a specific caterer or do you just hire a random one ?

There is no option to choose a random caterer I have to hire a specific one. I removed my cc and and it still doesn’t work. My sim still becomes the caterer.

Hi @LonelyFew

 

I merged your posts into one.

 

Have you tried a fresh save or different household to see if that has the same issue ? Also, does the same happen for  the party or just when you use the fridge option (the fridge option does seem a bit bugged as the normal caterer one is missing, as you said.

I started a new save completely and now the caterer option is completely gone.

Yeah, I think if you're referring to the one on the fridge, that's very wonky.

Here's the thread on that: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TO-ADD-Caterers-chefs-option-not-available/td-p/6441170/jump-t...

Going to hold off with further testing on this until after today's patch.

Currently I can't duplicate the error.

as the other issue with the caterer was solved in today's patch, could you retest this.


Thank you.
