@awheels77 DO you see that in every household you play or just in a certain one ?

Could you test a fresh save for testing purposes to see if the same issue occurs there ?

The way I've seen it happens is this...

If YOU cue up an action, it doesn't automatically get cancelled in favor of the next one. You can cue up as many as you like and they'll all stay there until complete.

If the SIM cues up an action automatically and YOU cue up a second, the one the SIM cued up will get cancelled in favor of yours.

 

Your actions will always take precedence over the ones the Sim does automatically.

@Psychotps Yeah, I noticed that but the thing is I will ask them to do both and it just cancels out the eating interaction

@awheels77

 

If you cue up eating and another task and it cancels eating, then that's not normal. It shouldn't do your second action until the first one is complete. It's not a bug in the game 'cause mine doesn't do that. You may want to do a game repair and try playing without mods to see if that may be causing it.

 

Although there is an exception... there is a mod with the initials "WW" that we can't speak about here.  Actions from that mods override everything.

@awheels77 Are they already eating when you queue the second task or do you put both at the same time ? Could you test both scenarios if you haven't ?
