[NEEDS INPUT] [V] NPC Vampires don't autonomously come in anymore

[ 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? 1.44.88
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Seasons, Cats and Dogs, Get Together, Get to Work. Vampires, Dine Out, Parenthood, Spa Day. Kids Room Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Bowling Night Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a vampire break in on a public and private lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? 1) some npc vampires will knock at the door and stand there until invited in, and then when you invite them in they just hang around for a few hours and then leave. 2) When Vlad does his usual first bite(after introducing himself) he will walk up to the door and then turn around and leave, having done nothing. 3) Sometimes when on a public lot, a vampire will enter and my sims are unable to leave until the vampire quits trying to bite someone. This will last for several sim hours and the vampire won't even do anything!
What do you expect to see? Vampires breaking in, biting the targeted sim and leaving.
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 

This happened after I made a new save. At first, less vampires had tried to break in(I assume this was an update), but now when they do show up, they don't do anything unless you interact with them!

Hi @Tazzykiki

 

does this also happen if you start a new save ?  (just talking about 1 & 2 as 3 is covered in the other thread you posted in :D)

 

Which lot does your Sim live on ? Does that matter ? Do you have any doors locked ? Any garlic around ?

I'm not too sure because I've been in one save for a while now. I don't have any doors locked and it happens on any lot. I never use garlic. The only time I did was when Vampires were first introduced and they broke in almost all the time, but that was way far back.

Hi.

 

This is a problem i notice in the game. The Vampire invasion neve happen in my game, they only came at night (23pm), knock the door, stay for a while and go away. I already try everything. Removed CPs, Mods (i only use PosePlay), i start a new game, but the problem stil there, i put the sim to sleep, they know about vampires, but the problem it's still there. 

 

Reading a lot of foruns, i ended up on the Oficial one, now, i'm confused. Did they removed this event? Or it's a bug?

I have noticed this as well, my sim is also friends with a few vampires and they rarely visit.

So I tried to call to invite to house after 8pm and through out the night they are sleeping at night now.

before April 16 patch they were sleeping in day.

think this is the issue and was just about to make a bug report and saw this.

 

at first didn't show up took about a few game days. now i been testing it for about 2 weeks (in game sim time) and 1 vampire only visit 1 time and only stay till little after 10pm and was sleeping shortly after.

 

vampires should be sleeping in day not night.

Same here, but it might be a tuning change?
Many have been very verbal about how annoying they find the break inns.
