[NEEDS INPUT] Sims cancel eating Leftovers (No drink)

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.136.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All EPs and Packs, and most Stuff Packs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? click on the fridge and select "get leftovers"
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim takes the leftovers, sits and the eating action disappears. If you click again on the dish on the table the action just vanishes again, so the sim can't eat from that dish anymore.
What do you expect to see? The sim sits, and eats the leftovers.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Last patch (June Eco Lifestyle)

"Get Leftovers" from the fridge most of the times does not work: the sim takes the dish from the fridge, sits and then he/she won't eat from that dish no matter what. You have to clean the plate up and get another one.

There are other things that happens as well. Sometimes a sim will be eating and will not finish the plate even though their hunger need is not full. Quite often as mentioned above when a sim places a plate somewhere in the house it will disappear with out without food on it. Very few times the plate has been found but not where the sim was placing it. Example would be the sim goes to place the plate on the dining room table, it would then show up on the coffee table after a few sim minutes, it's never been more than 1 sim hour if it shows back up. My detective sim was at work eating. I queued some things for him to do after eating. He ate for 10 sim minutes got up, place the plate on the dining table and poof it was gone forever. That was at the beginning of his shift. Also another one is a sim would grab a serving from the refrigerator and when I look back at that sim, they are still standing in front of the refrigerator and the plate is gone. This bug has been getting progressively worst since installing EL. From day 1 of installing EL I didn't have this issue. It started 5-7 days later with just one occurrence. I wouldn't see it again for another day or so.

@crinrictI had just repaired the game because I purchased 4 stuff packs. I always repair the game after installing in new packs. But I will repair again to see if that helps and get back to you.

@crinrict So I haven't noticed any food disappearing. I have noticed that the hunger need does not fill up when they eat a meal. I have to have them eat 2-3 times to get it filled up

@SexyLadyK For any food you eat ? Does your Sim still interrupt eating ? Is the Sim also drinking at the same time ?

Been having this issue too. Also idk if this is related, but the “Forager’s stew” recipe has no option to grab a serving, aka eat. You can only pick up a serving, then have to eat it from your inventory. Could be a separate issue, but I noticed them both at the same time.

Same here, usually the last serving of leftovers, and when taken from a counter or fridge.

 

Had it for a while and didn't really try to fix, am having error 134 now so can't try and fix this one
