[NEEDS SAVES] Eating fruitcake reaction gets stuck for all foods

[ Edited ]
Champion

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? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, Get To Work, Get Together, City Living, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Parenthood, Dine Out, Fitness Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Luxury Party Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have sims taste gourmet fruitcake for the first time, either cooked by themselves or from a welcome wagon event.
What happens when the bug occurs? The reactions they make while eating fruitcake get permanently stuck active, so that when the sim is eating any other food they still react with animations like they are eating fruitcake. This can be either permanent disgust or permanent delight.
What do you expect to see? After eating fruitcake, their reaction for eating other foods should be normal.
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? No

This is a previously reported bug, but the old thread didn't have the bug template. The old thread only addressed the "grossed out" reaction being stuck after eating fruitcake, but I currently also have a sim who is stuck thinking every food is tasty even if it is poorly cooked (because it turned out he loved fruitcake - he does not have the glutton trait either).

 

The workaround noted from the old thread was to have your sims eat fruitcake again to return their eating animations back to normal.

I've uploaded my save to the Box widget. It covers both bugs, as I only play one saved game for everything.

Thank you so much @simvasion, it's super appreciated! Unfortunately some of your message got cut off when you uploaded the 2nd save. "[Bug 2] In Willow Creek in t" is as far as I see. Could you tell me the name of the household for the Known Alien issue? Thanks so much again for all the help!

Sure, the other bug you can see if you load the "Hsieh" household in Willow Creek - there's a sim there called Whitney who, when you look at her relationship panel, she thinks her husband is a known alien, when he's 100% human.

This is a very old bug. One of the reason I instantly quit welcome wagon event and clean up the cake. And also removed fuitcake/gourment fruitcake from all restaurants.

I have had one Sim that thinks everything he eats is disgusting, and I do specifically remember that he hated the welcome wagon fruitcake that his son apparently had in his inventory. Is there a way to fix him? I mean he's old and is dying soon anyway but still.

Just make another gourmet fruit cake and have him eat it. That will make it go away.

I still had this bug on one of my older sims. Eating the fruitcake again did not solve it.

 

This solved it however:

 

Open console menu and enter the following:

 

testingcheats on to enable cheats

 

if your sim are reacting with delight to all foods enter: traits.remove_trait trait_Hidden_Likes_Fruitcake

 

if your sim are reacting with disgust to all foods enter: traits.remove_trait trait_Hidden_Hates_Fruitcake
