[NEEDS INPUT] Sims cancel interactions to play dolls

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Buying a doll house
What happens when the bug occurs? Everyone in the household stops what they are doing just to play dolls
What do you expect to see? See above
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I've had this problem since the laundry day patch, and now its getting on my nerves.

I don't know if someone has already reported this or what not, and im sorry if this is already a post

Basically what happens, is i make my sims do something ( other than play dolls ) and they cancel that interaction JUST TO PLAY DOLLS
sometimes the " play dolls " interaction just doesn't work. they stand near the doll house and nothing happens ( when i tell them not to play dolls )
All my toddlers want to do is play dolls, same with my child sim and their mother. 

They cancel whatever i tell them to do, just to play dolls. I eventually has to sell the doll house.

I have tried repairing my game in origin and i still get the problem!

I think this is one of the obsessions from the Parenthood Pack. It also happens in my game frequently. The other ones are watching Kids TV and washing inexistent dishes.

Hi @CitrineSimmer

 

We are having trouble trying to reproduce this issue.

 

Would you be willing to send your save files?  If so, instructions are here:

That would help us a lot!.

 

Thank you very much!

I don't have that save file anymore unfortunately, but to find the bug, all you have to do is buy a dollhouse, turn on autonomy and wait.. Sometimes they don't play dolls straight away, but most of the time they cancel interactions or ' Play dolls ' will be in their interaction que and they will just stand still for a while and the interaction to ' play dolls ' cancels on its own!

Tagging @SimGuruIcarus for feedback.

I don't usually place doll houses, but my main household has one and until I had autonomy off, they would gravitate to play dolls. It's usually a whim for them too. I've noticed it for my toddler, child, and mom. The dad doesn't seem to, at least that I've noticed.

When my power comes back on (in a week+ ) I plan on testing a new save for this and other multiple issues.

Hello everyone!

 

We have been unable to reproduce this issue. Saves would be very appreciated. 

 

Also, do your sims have the childish trait?

 

Thank you very much!
