[OPEN] [ECO] Future Cubes/Clay Spawning in Inventories

[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
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? 1.63.134.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Get Together
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? My entire household was visiting another house ("household 2"). I switched to play household 2 for less than a minute while the original household was on the lot and then switched back to the original household while still on household 2's lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? Future Cubes spawn in the active household's inventory. The moment Sims are done with one task (usually "Practice Programming" unless all computers are removed from the lot), they immediately check their Future Cube. However, a new cube spawns each time a Sim does this.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see no Future Cubes being spawned, active Sims not checking Future Cubes after every action, and for adult Sims to want to do something other than "Practice Programming."
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? No

My entire household was visiting another house ("household 2"). I switched to play household 2 for less than a minute while the original household was on the lot and then switched back to the original household while still on household 2's lot. I came back to find everyone in both households playing with Future Cubes. Future Cubes spawn in the active household's inventory. The moment Sims are done with one task, they immediately check their Future Cube. However, a new cube spawns each time a Sim does this. Sometimes they'll check a Future Cube and when they are done, it won't be in their inventory.

 

When the original household returned to their lot, adults only wanted to "Practice Programming." They will stop their current action to go to a computer to "Practice Programming." I removed the computers on the lot and the Sims won't do anything else autonomously - other than check their Future Cubes.

@heather1314 Glad I am not the only one experiencing this, its extremely annoying. Although I am playing on PC.

This keeps happening to me too, I was so confused where these Future Cubes kept spawning from. I hope this is fixed soon.

I usually play with four different households, so yeah, it probably happened sometime when I was switching between them. Not sure how to get rid of it.

@R13n3 Someone on Twitter said marking a household as unplayed, playing in another, and going back into the unplayed household worked for them. It didn't for me. Worth a shot?

I have noticed many of my townies walking around my neighborhood with future cubes. They stop and check the cube and usually cry at the result. So it's not just active households, either.

I only play one household at a time, so I haven't checked the actual inventories of the sims doing this, but I've noticed since the update/installing Eco Lifestyle, other sims (not in the active household) are constantly playing with future cubes, as well as molding clay, and some sort of tablet (possibly the digital sketchpad, but I'm not 100% sure).

 

Edit: The tablet I spoke of was actually not the digital sketchpad, but the one that comes from the Civil Designer career.

This occurred to me today, just after installing Eco yesterday. My sim moved from one university lot to another, then to the new eco neighbourhood - and before I knew it, she had like a gazillion future cubes in her inventory. And every time I delete them, more show up.
