How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all expansions, stuff packs, and game packs.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? make a club, be the leader... start a club meeting.. doesn't matter where. the sims will show up on bikes.
What happens when the bug occurs? 3 to 4 sims with spawn riding bikes at the spawn location be it an apartment, bar, or even nightclub

I didn't like the idea of bikes in the sims to begin with [don't like them in real life either], but this bug has made me want nothing more than to get rid of them completely. Screenshot included is a club meeting started at my sim apartment without mods.

★★ Guide

I agree that this is a problem. Even if this should be considered as "By Design" or an issue more appropriate for the feedback section, this meet-on-bikes does give raise to a major bug: If you save and exit to Manage Worlds (or the game) while this gathering of bikes is taking place, the game might actually leave some of those bikes where they were, now ownerless and unable to be deleted because they're stuck in the neighborhood zone! The only way to get rid of them now is by using a destroy cheat via mods.

I'm just going to state now.. that yes I am aware of Beichen's no bikes inside.. but I had the mod and it was still happening. I know I removed it at one point for some reason.. ill include a screenshot of an outside location this same thing happens. my sim started his vampire club meeting at an underground bar I built to replaced Vlads house with. there were 4 of them on bikes but this screenshot only includes an old don lothario lol. I also have it happen at the disco in Windenburg. The only place I never see bikes is actually the university world.

More annoying is when you go into Live Mode to those Sims households to delete the bikes in their inventory that is causing them to all spawn at Club Meetings on a bike...they have no bikes to delete either in their personal inventories or household inventories meaning this is most probably a Game Design as opposed to a bug. Marking the Club Members as 'Played' does not stop them spawning on bikes to future meetings either.

So far this mostly happens to me when I click "Stay here" - if I go to the actual meeting location, they usually spawn as normal. Of course, now that I've said that, my game is going to make a liar out of me! But it is ridiculously annoying when it does happen, as you can't seem to interact with them until those stupid bikes despawn back into inventory...which can take a while as the game really likes to think about that one. If it's by design, thumbs down.

This happens on PS4 also.

Agreed. I have all the club people show up and park their bikes in front of my house.

Please describe the patch or change you made. Get Together and Discover University

Before Discover University all members came usually on foot during a gathering but after i've installed Discover University back in January 2020. Some of the members are coming with bicycles on lots. I first thought this is a bug.

 

I've started with the pre-made Bjergsen family from Windenburg when Clara starts a gathering with the High Society members at home. Hugo and Mila arrived at the lot but both appeared with bicycles and sat for some In-game minutes then getting out from the bicycles and put in back to inventories. Then I've played with a another family that visited the Discothèque Pan Europa-Nightclub. Almost all of the Spin Masters-members arrived with bicycles.

 

This also appears with self-created clubs as well.

 

What i did was removing the localthumbcache.package and tried on a savegame with disabled Mods/CCs but unfortunaly it's the same.
