Without group gatherings, I also have clay everywhere. In parks, on the food stall squares of SanMishuno, in the gym, in the waters of Sulani, on the slopes of Mt Komorebi. Just clay popping up everywhere.
I thought they fixed this bug in December? But for me it started around that time (not sure if before or after bug fix). At first I thought it was funny, but now there is like 15 lumps of clay in the water in Sulani and I can't get them out.
I am having the same thing with restaurant staff, they keep pulling out lumps clay and then leaving them all over the restaurant.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
Are new lumps of clay appearing in these Sims' inventories, or have those lumps of clay been in their inventories for a long time now (from before the fix in the Nov 10, 2020 patch)?
If you think the lumps of clay have been in their inventories for a long time now, you'll have to manually delete them. If you think they're spawning new lumps of clay, would you be willing to share your saves with me? Instructions on how to share saves are here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/INFORMATION-How-to-Send-User-Files-to-The-Sims-4-Team/m-p/6065...
I think the clay lump problem has been around since December - not entirely sure.
They seem to just spawn new lumps - I also forgot to say it doesn't just seem to be the workers either - random sims do too.

I am also still getting clay randomly placed everywhere. I have a celebrity home so people keep showing up at the gate and leaving clay in the street outside my sim's house (del sol valley 64x64) and since it is technically off the lot's grid I can't even get rid of these without the tool mod.
