Original Post

[OPEN] Excessive drink mixing

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansion packs except Island Living and Uni and every game pack except StrangerVille.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a bar at your home lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sims (especially sims with high mixology skill) are excessively mixing drinks at the bar (up to 7 in a row) and the glasses are standing there, no one's drinking them and they spoil and I have to clean this up or refresh the drinks. They also drop commands from the queue just to go mixing at a bar.
What do you expect to see? No excessive usage of the bar. Occasional usage of the bar.
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 

I only found a thread of excessive drinking. So I make this thread. My sims (especially my high level Mixology sims) are mixing drinks almost every sim hour and the glasses are standing there, spoiled drinks everywhere and I have to clean this up or they refresh the drinks.

I have same problem. I have a bar in all my sims homes and they are always cancelling what i tell them to do to go mix drinks

This happens on PS5 also. A sim gets a point in Mixology and that's all they do. They mix drinks all the time and leave them sitting on the bar and interrupt other actions to go mix drinks whenever inspired. Traits don't seem to matter, they just need inspired and a bar on the lot and then they just mix drinks.

I don't work for EA. I'm a player helping other players. I do not respond to PMs.

Yes, it's very annoying.  If I forget her for a second; she is off mixing drinks.  And they litter the bar.

My foodie Sim used to incessantly make drinks, complain the bar was filthy and disgusting, and then say that the one drink he drank was "disappointing."  YOU are the reason the bar is disgusting. YOU made that drink!  You have only yourself to blame!


(I forbade that action in MC Tuner, too.)

Hi, a few mods especially when you use just a few, are not hard to keep up to date, and can fix various 'in-game' issues.. such as this one, there are a few modders that have made 'No autonomous make Bar Drinks'  I currently use Bienchens (thirsttweak) so only max skilled in mixology sims will auto make bar drinks.

Hope this helps,

@xochiquetzl_xkvn I just give them the globe bar and turn it so they can't use it if I don't want them to. It doesn't seem to frustrate them at all; they just get "confident' moodlets from it.

@stjmk  It's partly my own fault, in that I have a former mixologist who got the inspiring career reward bar.  They make drinks when inspired.  Her foodie housemate ended up level 10 in mixology due to his obsession.  Still disappointed in his own drinks, though, LOLOL.

I had the same issues but again was busts fault and the inspired buff. Oh, I am inspired now I make 30000 drinks for me and my dust bunnies friends! Yeah, I disabled the pack and inspired is only allow in the basement with 10 easels.


Fixed this behaviour for me.
