[NEEDS SAVES] [ROM] Sims Stops Having Their Familiar Present

[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Svenska
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.55.105.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansion packs, Vampires, Jungle Adventures, StrangerVille, Realm of Magic, Kids Room Stuff, Luxury Party Stuff, Holiday Celebration Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Make a sim have a familiar present, after a while the familiar will disappear (go back to the void or whatever it's called). It happens randomly when you play a sim, and it happens all the time when you play with another household.
What happens when the bug occurs? When a sim has a familiar present for a while.
What do you expect to see? That if a sim has a familiar present it will stay present even if I play with other households.
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

So, if my sim has a familiar present after a while it disappears without me telling them to do so. If I play with another household the familiars always go back to the void. it feels odd that they won't stay present, because when you're in the Realm, or anywhere for that sake, you expect sims with familiars to still have them present when you meet them. Now it's just the played sim who has it (and even when you play with them the familiar suddenly will go back to the void without me telling them to), and that takes away a bit of the magical feeling.

@Katrus91 I sometimes get a message that they don't have room to spawn and then they disappear. Did you never get such a message ?

As for rotational play, I'm assuming that's cause they go about their lives while you're not playing them.

@Katrus91 Do they disappear only when you travel somewhere or also randomly at your house when you're moving about ?

Any idea if it's when you're going to certain places (like taking a shower maybe) ?

I happens randomly, haven't noticed it happen on specific occasions. Not when showering, bathing, sleeping, going to the toilet or anything like that.

@crinrict, I can confirm this too.Frown  However I'm not sure if they disappear randomly, or jus when I'm traveling.Wondering  I was not playing rotationally at the time, and I have no Mods/CC. Angel

I just figured it was by design.  That they only stayed for a limited amount of time and then you had to summon them again.
