[OPEN] [GTW] Unable to decorate baked goods

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Bake something and put it on a counter. Then try to decorate.
What happens when the bug occurs? Routing failure and goods don't get decorated
What do you expect to see? Decorated goods
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

I can no longer decorate baked goods either from the cupcake factory or oven.  When asked to do so my Sim flails her hands as if something is blocking her way when nothing is in the way.  I think this is probably since the last patch as I was able to decorate them before.

I have searched to see if this has been reported here and I could not find anything about this, but it is mentioned in the forum.

Could you try a new save game for testing reasons to see if the error persists.

 

Make sure to close down the game completely, then start a new game.

Re: Unable to decorate baked goods

Hi Crin,

I went in and started a completely new game with a totally different Sim.  Once I got her baking skill up to level 2 decorate was an option.  The only thing she could decorate was the Oatmeal Cookies.  Everything else I baked including sugar cookies, and peanut butter cookies could not be decorated and this Sim did the same thing as my other Sim.  She flailed her arms as if something was in the way.  I even tried to move the cookies to a different location and that didn't work.  I tried to decorate everything she was able to bake at level 2 including donuts, cereal bars, doughnut holes, bread, fruit tarts, peanut butter cookies and cupcakes.  Up until recently I was able to decorate all of those and more.  Out of curiosity I went into my saved game that I have been playing and had my Sim bake Oatmeal Cookies, she was unable to decorate them.

 

Also I have had the glitch with not being able to use the fridge and stove without repairing my game first.  Tonight I just went in without repairing and I did not have the problem.  My origin updated tonight so I do not know if the problem was maybe fixed or I just got lucky.  Since I've been having the problem all the time I normally just repair the game before playing.  Using the fridge was not a problem with either game the new one or the saved one.

 

Thanks for your help.

I actually had this issue before the patch myself for the cupcake stuff.

 

I'll test again tomorrow after patch and with no mods..

 

I baked something on the cupcake machine and then tried to decorate (home lot).

I was getting this but I had to move the cookies toward the edge of the counter and it worked.

So it's extra insensitive. All the other interactions seem possible from where my Sim put it (once on a half-wall, once on a counter.

 

Bit unsure what to do with this as I think you shouldn't have to move your goods just to decorate them when you don't get routing failures for other interactions.

 

I'll do some more testing.
