Journey To Batuu

★★★ Newbie

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? Most Recent PC
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except paranormal
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Join the first order in Journey to Batuu 2. Make it through the first order aspiration until you get to the goal to arrest resistance members 3. Check the id of a resistance member
What happens when the bug occurs? My sim will check the id of a resistance member, the resistance member will put their hands up, then for a short period of time the "make arrest" task shows up in my queue. The "make arrest" task almost immediately disappears and the resistance member just walks away. I can queue up other tasks and move on or, if I let my sim sit there, the task queue will expand and shrink a bunch of times like it's trying to reconcile an error. Occasionally when I try this, the "make arrest" task will show up about 20 times in the queue and then disappear. Either way, I can never complete this goal of the aspiration.
What do you expect to see? I expect to be able to successfully arrest a member of the resistance like the game tells me too in the aspiration.
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? No

Note: I have reached the highest rank of the first order by doing missions. Also, I know for sure that I am attempting this with resistance members and/or resistance sympathizers (for the other mission).

Hi, it looks like this is still an issue because it keeps happening to me as well. I check the ID, get into a fight, then the sim gets stuck when "escorting." What I do is delete the mission I am doing in the control panel. I was surprised to see how old this issue is and how it is STILL not fixed Frown

JTB Can't make Arrests

What is your current game version number? 1.75.125.1030

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to Batuu, join the first order and check IDs of suspicious Sims
What happens when the bug occurs? Throughout my playthrough of Journey to Batuu, I have been unable to make arrests for the First Order. I have no problem with checking IDs, but once my sim goes to make an arrest, the action disappears from her queue and both she and the suspect just stand there, before going their separate ways.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see my sim make an arrest, so she can complete her tasks.
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

I would really just like to get this fixed. It's been happening for three days now, and I'm getting angry.

@etrilla I feel this, can't get my aspiration done because of it and so I have given up on JTB. There are so many bugs.

I just discovered the immediate fix for this:

Do the resetSim cheat for the full name of the Sim you're arresting when it glitches out. You can find their name near the top of your "Relationships - R" panel, since you recently interacted with them.

Then it's all fixed!

This interaction seems to only be broken at the higher levels of First Order rank - when I was at a lower level I was able to arrest Resistance members just fine, but with "Check ID" at rank 4 the "Escort Prisoner" action didn't go through. I tried twice - the first time, my Sim had a conversation with his droid queue up instead of actually arresting anyone, the second time "Escort Prisoner" did actually pop into the queue but he walked to a different part of the map and eventually the prisoner left the lot.

 

I've tried resetting Sims by clicking on them and that didn't work - haven't tried the resetSim Firstname Lastname cheat.

Re: Batuu First Order Escorting Glitch

★ Novice

* this works 

CTRL + SHIFT + C > testingcheats > you should get a message saying testingcheats enabled

SHIFT + left click on the sim that is causing the glitch, add them to your family. Then, with your sim selected, remove them from family.

@WellThatWasDumbSame happend to me, what really worked for me to get unstuck and be able to save my game without loosing progress was let the speed up and just wait it took like 12 simmer hours and she got unstucked and i was able to continue and save my game.

@crinrict This happened to me too and this workaround helped. Let the game speed up until time has passed and the other NPC Sim that your Sim was escorting leaves your side. I believe the issue is due to 2 conflicting features in the area:

 

1) TIE Echelon

 

and

 

2) First Order Prison Building

 

The NPC was supposed to go to the building but decided to sort of go towards the TIE Echelon and the game stuck, was unable to save and unable to click anything and unable to resume normal gameplay, at least until this workaround (quoted above) helped. This issue also happens in The Sims 4 base game as well as dialogue can become stuck and characters stay stuck until time has passed by. This is a technical issue that needs addressing.
