[OPEN] [DU] [SE] Limited shower choices while Energized (open showers)

[ Edited ]
★ Pro

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? 1.68.156.1020 (64 bit)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? GET TO WORK, Get Together, City Living, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, Get Famous, Island Living, Discover University, Eco Lifestyle, Snowy Escape. OUTDOOR RETREAT, Spa Day, Dine Out, Vampires, Parenthood, Jungle Adventure, StrangerVille, Realm of Magic, Journey to Batuu. LUXURY PARTY, Perfect Patio, Cool Kitchen, Spooky Stuff, Movie Hangout, Romantic Garden, Kids Room, Backyard, Vintage Glamour, Bowling Night, Fitness, Toddler, Laundry Day, My First Pet, Moschino, Tiny Living, Nifty Knitting. HOLIDAY.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Get Energized and try to take a shower at the Sutefani Onsen Bathhouse.
What happens when the bug occurs? Shower choices are limited to Take a Brisk Shower and Take a Steamy Shower.
What do you expect to see? Take a Shower, Take a Brisk Shower, Take a Thoughtful Shower, Take a Steamy Shower, and Take a Speedy Shower.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Installed Snowy Escape.

I've recently noticed that my Sim is limited to Brisk and Steamy showers when she is Energized, using the Steamy Times Shower at the Sutefani Onsen Bathhouse. In the past, my Sims have always been able to take normal showers, plus Brisk, Thoughtful, and Steamy showers. In addition, they were able to take Speedy showers when Energized and Cold showers when Flirty.

 

My current Sim has the portable It's A Shower Tarp! from Outdoor Retreat in her personal inventory, so I dragged it onto the lot. She can take Brisk, Thoughtful, Steamy, and Speedy showers using the portable shower while Energized but normal showers are still missing. I have not checked any other showers, lots, moods, or Sims.

 

A similar problem was reported in the Technical Issues forum in April but it has been marked as Solved.

@Sketch793 Did you only test that shower or does it happen with others as well ? Only at the onsen or otherwise

There used to be bug with that that was fixed but maybe they put it back for that one shower, so would be good if you could test others to see if it's the onsen that's an issue or the shower (currently don't have time to test myself)

I am still noticing this with the DU shower on my sim's home lot, so perhaps it's just an issue with the open showers and I just tried it again on Magic HQ (my sims happened to be there and one was energized so use the freebuild cheat to add one). I attach a screenshot of the options. I have no mods in my game and have all the packs. Game version is PC: 1.68.156.1020.

 

 

Best regards,

@crinrict I've only tested the two showers I mentioned in my report. I've been playing other games recently, so I haven't had time for any further checks.

@Sketch793 OK. Did a quick test.

Seems it's only the two open showers from Uni and Snowy Escape. The IL one is fine.

Have used the DU and SE open showers since patch 1.70.84.1020 and the limited options while energized is still an issue.

 

Play on PC with all content released to date installed, English, never used mods/cc.
