Re: Sim frozen in place until they die

★★ Apprentice

With the release of the patch yesterday (November 18), this is happening once again.  I had a sim freeze in place and as I tried to get him to move, or do anything, the commands I entered scrolled off the top of the queue.  It happened 2 times within an hour - on both occasions, I had to restart my game to restore the sims ability to move.  I discovered, in the past, that if I do not reload my game, a sim will stand frozen in place until they starve to death.  There are no warnings or signs this is happening.

@TheSolidRequiem Did you have a Winterfest in your game ? Just Sims freezing or time freezing ?

Happy Gaming

Sim waits for hours before doing a command PS4

★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
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? 1.34
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I have everything installed except for Snowy Escape, Journey to Batuu, Kids, Toddlers and Dogs and Cats.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I'm guessing, just turn the game on and play a sim with the PS4 game. It's happening every time I play now.
What happens when the bug occurs? My sim will literally stand around for up to 3 hours of game time before doing a queued command.  Sometimes,  the commands don't even take at all and disappear.  Also,  the clock will suddenly speed up 20 to 30 minutes only to jump back the same amount a few seconds later.  This has happened several times while I watched.
What do you expect to see? I expect my sim to actually do the commands that he's given and for the game to work properly.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I noticed it after the 1.34 fix for the no sound and crashes bug.

I'm on PS4,  and since the 1.34 fix,  my sims will literally stand around for up to 3 hours of game time before doing a queued command.  Sometimes,  the commands don't even take at all and disappear.  Also,  the clock will suddenly speed up 20 to 30 minutes only to jump back the same amount a few seconds later.  This has happened several times while I watched.

 

 

My sim is unplayable at home.  He does his Scientist job at the lab  just fine with no hesitation with commands.  Its only when he is at the home lot.  I saved the game,  and had him move houses thinking my house was too large (or had too much stuff),  but he instantly started standing around for hours on end at the new house as well.   

 

 

ETA:  I wanted to mention for clarity that after the 1.33 update,  my game save was my sim at a lounge.  He was accepting commands fine,  but with the game crashing and losing sound... I only played an hour or so before giving up to wait on the patch.  Its entirely possible,  that the Sim would have been standing around for hours at time at home after the 1.33 update.  I only noticed after the 1.34 fix,  and when I sent my Sim back to his house.

Sadly EA couldn't care less about our issues. Their absolute silence on this thread should be evidence of that. What fixed it for me was completely uninstalling the game and never playing it again.

Not a single Sim in my entire game will do anything!!   No matter which Sim I play,  they stand around doing nothing.  Items will NOT allow any interaction until you hove over them for a few seconds.  Time gets stuck and then  suddenly jumps forward 30 minutes only to then suddenly jump back 20 minutes!   

 

 

I have 3 different saves including one that had not been played since before the 1.33 update.  All 3 saves have the same issue!   I am about to try a new game,  but I fully expect to have the problem right from the start.   

 

 

I have paid good money to own every expansion pack, game pack and stuff pack except for a small few, and to have a game that has flushed all my hard work down the toilet is ridiculous!   

 

 

If I'm the only one having this problem,  please someone tell me how to fix it.   I do not want to delete this game,  but its totally unplayable right now unless the new game makes the problem go away  (at the expense of hundreds of hours of gameplay).

For what its worth,  the new game I started is working perfectly.  Of course it is,  because I don't have my tons of hours of gameplay tied to this,  but I'm letting my irritation get me off topic. 

 

 

I can only guess that my save was glitched somehow either by the update (and having saved before the patch fixed problems),  or just because there's too much stuff and too many Sims in that game world.  Or maybe its just the save bloat I've heard about.  Regardless,  I'm NOT happy about losing that saved game,  but at least I'm able to play again with all the packs I've paid for.  That's something at least.

New games will always work perfectly. As you advance with your character, buy furniture, increase in level (work, music, artists, etc) it begins to slow down. Especially when you add members of the household or make your house larger and add more furniture.

 

EA has not had an answer to this in years snd they refuse to fix it. It's also like this on the pc and I have a gaming machine that isn't that old and I'm experiencing the same thing. My sim just stands around for a while, not like on the ps4 though, and then will act after a while. And I'm also experiencing the issue where you have them do something snd it disappears and the sim won't do what you want them to.

 

I've emailed EA and submitted a ticket and still have yet to hear from them. It's been over a year. That should give you an idea of how much they care about their game and their customers. They simply don't care. They refuse to fix this game, probably because they are working on a new one and they are expecting people to buy that and forget about the Sims 4.
