HI @corenren 

 

I'm not able to replicate this.

 

Does it matter which interactions you queue ? Have you tried a fresh save and a different family for testing purposes ?

 

Also try repairing the game through Origin.

This is also happening to me too. It's incredibly annoying. It eventually cancels but it takes a long time and sims just stand there frozen.

This happens to me occasionally.. But whenever i cancel, they still walk to the place and then stop once they are there, even when i cancelled..

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Action doesn't cancel

I have this problem occasionally too. Although the most annoying thing for me is not that they keep doing what I told them not to, but the fact that 1 every 5 times I manage to stop the action - The icon doesn't disappear from the cue. The cancelled icon gets "stuck". The sim can still do the new actions I give but the old one is still there unless I restart the game...
