[OPEN] DJs and Mixologists Do Not Stay on the Job

[ Edited ]
★★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
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? CL, CD, S, GF, IL, OR, SD, DO, V, PH, JA, SV, PPSP, SSP, CKSP, MHSP, RGSP, KSPS, BYSP, BNSP, FSP, MFPSP, MSP
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Any venue where there is a bar and/or a DJ station. If a celebrity appears, or any Sim does something that other Sims will watch (like group dance or dance battle) then the service Sims leave their posts to watch/cheer/whatever.
What happens when the bug occurs? This happens whenever something unusual is going on nearby, like a celebrity Sim appearing. It is especially irritating when the service Sim is *supporting* the action, as when they stop the music to watch a dance battle - thus ending the dance battle because there is no longer music playing.
What do you expect to see? I expect service Sims to be more persistent in staying at their jobs. Maybe if a Sim catches on fire - that would be reason to run and see what's happening, but stopping your DJ because a group dance is happening or a celebrity Sim happens by? C'mon!
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

My Sims never go to bars or clubs anymore because of this problem. It's not fun when the music stops every 30 seconds and then it takes forever for the service SIm to get back to it.

@JasonVega2 Hm, also not something I've seen in my game at all.

The DJ has been a bit wonky and mostly not present before the patch a lot but the party I went to after patch was fine.

Let's see if anyone else is seeing this.

I said something about this when get famous was release. when celebrity Sim walks into a nightclub the dj will just stop playing and watch the celebrity Sim dance until the celebrity Sim stops. its old and annoying.. when my Sim dj, she'll do the same thing. she'll stop and watch the celb sim.. I been asking for a fix.

 

edited: as for the Mixologist. they are robots. no problem with them

@crinrict I have this with nightclub DJs if they are in range of a celebrity on the dance floor. For example if Judith Ward poses right next to them they will stop and watch instead of DJ.

Possibly even more if a high reputation sim arrives and they need to do the reaction to a sim’s presence.

I think I’ve seen similar with bartenders too at Orchid-a-go-go. But I haven’t checked recently.
