[OPEN] Food ordered at bars is not placed directly in front of sim

[ Edited ]
Champion

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? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, Get To Work, Get Together, City Living, Outdoor Retreat, Jungle Adventure, Spa Day, Parenthood, Dine Out, Fitness Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Luxury Party Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, My First Pet Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to a bar and order any food.
What happens when the bug occurs? Most often the bartender will drop the plate off centre, not directly in front of the sim. Either that, or the sim will not pick up and readjust the position of the plate before they start eating, so it looks like they eat food off to the side.
What do you expect to see? I either expect the bartender to drop the plate or bowl of food directly in front of the sim or for the sim to pick up and move the food in front of them before they start eating.
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 

This has been like this for a while. Possibly maybe as far back as since the pre-Parenthood patch. I just never got around to reporting it. I don't remember this being an issue when I first started playing the game back in early 2017. Something changed with a patch during 2017 but I can't remember exactly.

 

It doesn't look so bad with this plate of pretzels, but with a bowl and a spoon in looks like they are eating invisible food in front of them while the bowl next to them slowly empties.

[OPEN] [GT] Eating Animation Off While Eating Bar Food

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Guide

When my Sim orders food from the bar, the bartender doesn't place the food directly in front of the Sim so when the Sim eats it, the animation is off.  The Sim has to be sitting at a bar stool in front of the bar for this to occur.  If my Sim picks up the plate of food and moves elsewhere, the eating animation is normal.  The bar or venue type has no effect on this bug.

 

The foods affected are:

 

  • Fish and Chips
  • Currywurst
  • Bowl of Olives
  • Pretzel

Yes because the Sim has to grab the plate. When the bartender sets the food in front of the Sim and the Sim eats the food, the animation is off.

I've also seen this. Try it with a food that requires a fork.  Nevermind, missed the part where you mentioned that, lol. the animation, for me anyway, bugs out and their arm is doing all kinds of weird, bendy stuff, so definitely not by design. Adding a me too

This is a very old issue.

Moved old thread into this new one as the old one didn't use the bug template
