Vampire Sims do not show up for work at the restaurants whether or not they where already a vampire or turned by my sim.

Tried adding them to World in manage household before and after I turn them, and they still do not show up for work.

Hi @davidmcdowell33

 

I assume you employed them first then turned them ?

 

Are you using any mods in your game ?

Could you test if they show up when you open the restaurant at night ?

Hi @davidmcdowell33

 

I've tested this in my own game and they didn't show up during the day but did when I opened the restaurant at night.

 

Guess it's just another of bug of that instance (unless that might actually be by design).

 

I'v moved this to the bug forum for now.

Same here. I had 2 employees that I wanted to keep forever, and turned them into vampires. Then, they stopped showing up even though they were still employed. It is obvious that them not showing up during the day is a bug, because vampires still show up for group gatherings during the day.

I'm having this issue as well. But only for vampires I have turned not for ones already in the game.

For many situations with vampires, the game checks if they're capable of going out during the day. This is mostly to prevent vampires from spawning and burning to death in the streets. One thing I might try is to have the vampire take all 3 ranks of sun resistance. If you want a way to test this in a more immediate fashion, Caleb Vatore already starts with these ranks and you can try hiring him if he's available.
