[OPEN] [CD] No Ultra Speed While Pets are on lot

[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

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? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a pet in the household and make all the Sims go to sleep.
What happens when the bug occurs? If a pet happens to be awake while the Sims are sleeping, then the game will not play on ultra speed.
What do you expect to see? I would expect ultra speed to work while Sims are sleeping even though pets are awake, ESPECIALLY since we cannot control pets.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Cats and Dogs

I saw the thread about ultra speed issues in apartments, and it reminded me of a similar issue I've been having. Even if all Sims on the lot are asleep, if even one pet in the house is awake, then the game will not play on ultra speed. I'm not sure if this is by design or not, but it still personally fills really off to me, ESPECIALLY since we cannot control pets.

For me it kicks in fine.

 

Do you have anything else on your lot that could cause the issue '

No, there's nothing on the lot that would cause ultra speed to not work. There aren't any visiting Sims or anything, and everyone in the household (except for the pets) is asleep. Like the other thread, this issue is especially prevalent in apartments, even if there isn't a festival going on.

The festivals aren't the only issue causing it for apartments though.

 

Do you have it in houses too ?

I just tested this in Brindleton Bay. It's still only going at maximum triple speed if pets are awake when the Sims are sleeping. It will not go on ultra speed. My mods are completely disabled. I am also playing on a brand new computer with more than enough specs to run the game.

Did you try in a new save or the same one in different hood ? Could be a save game issue

Did some more testing and it kicks in fine for me in apartments and houses. Hm

 

Putting this on feedback to see if someone else has issues with this.

Sadly, I do not think I can do that. I've tried to understand the instructions, I really have, but I don't. My problem is figuring out where the Sims 4 saves are even located in my files. It's really frustrating. I don't understand how I'm the only one this is happening to with no mods and max PC specs.

 

Thanks for trying to help, though.
