[NOT BUG] Sims complain about smelly stuff although nothing is dirty

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

My Sim is complaining about dirty plumbing. How do I fix that? I tried clicking every sink, tub, and shower and the clean option isn't available. I even tried to use a service, but there wasn't anything available except for a maid.

 

Does anyone know how to clean the plumbing? lol.

I'm going to mark this as solved as I believe there's always a reason for the moodlet.

 

Trying to summarize

 

  • Spoiled food in inventory
  • Bad Fish in fish tanks
  • Popcorn machine (even if nothing looks spoiled)
  • Some hidden left over plate somewhere
  • Fridge or any of the machines with spoiled food in it.

Must be a bug. I used the console (Shift+Ctrl+C), turned on the testing cheats (testingcheats true), right clicked every plumbing object and selected "Make Clean". If the item is dirty, the "Clean" option should be available, but it appears that is not always the case. Anyway, if this happens to you, just use the cheat to get around the problem for now.....

I've been dealing with this all night, I have three sinks in my Sim's house, two showers and two toilets, I cannot for the life of me actually find a sink, shower or toilet that has "dirty plumbing".  One can only assume that there's some kind of feature going to come out later that a "Plumber" will be able to be called out.

sim uncomfortable

★★★★ Novice

there is a BUG that is getting very annoying.

a sim keeps getting stuck with uncomortable.

and it even affects other sims it gets near.

 

its a moodlet and it says +3 uncomfortable, 

ive emptyed its inventory .. no change

ive cleaned the house .. no change

ive changed all items in the house .. no change

the sim stats bars are all full/ green .. no change

 

there is one thing that works for a short period of time, and that is .. to goto the wardrobe and pick .. plan outfit.

but even this is temporary , and its getting very annoying 

 

this BUG  needs to be sorted out and soon.

Does it say why the Sim is unconformable (when you hover over the moodlet) ?

Re Re: sim uncomfortable

@crinrict

the full wording that it says is:

+3 uncomfortable

Filthy Surroundings

(from bad environment)

Most Sims hate being surrounded by filth and squalor.

 

which should mean some-thing needs cleaning.

it is all clean, i even have rebuilt the house, and got new items.

 

but the sim still makes other sims uncomfortable being near him/her.

so its not a problem with the house and items.

its a BUG problem that keeps showing up on the sims

 

i have even visited different places with the sim, and it has the same affect.

 

so it must be a bug/glitche on the moodlet, seeing that the sim gets it for no real reason.

@Forwick Merged with existing thread then. Needed to make sure you have the same issue.

 

Do you have a one Sim Family ? Is it just the one Sim ?
