I've run into the same issue. It's a nightly issue at this point where not even my little robot vacuums can keep up with all the puddles while my sims are sleeping. I only have one active ghost, and he just destroys everything in the house.

It's became VERY annoying recently. All ghost are breaking everything whenever they can, like this action is set to high priority against others. And even playable ghosts act like this in their own houses! At least playable ghosts shouldn't be breaking their own stuff.

@crinrictcomicsforever I had to use MCC tuner to disable ghost sabotage or whatever it is called.

Something is really wrong with ghosts. I have some in one of my clubs, and this club has a feature that prohibits sims to break things. Club-member ghosts IGNORE EVEN THAT.

I believe it is right click on sim, select the mcc option, then go down to turner and enable it. Once enabled, click on all sinks, tubs, toilets, showers and go to tuner  and click on ghost sabotage. Sorry I am not in my game atm so I might not be exactly accurate. But you get the general ideal. Once you have disabled what you want from turner. Go back to your sim and like you did before only this time disable turner. If you still have problems you should visit Deaderpool's discord page. There are a lot of people there you can ask questions to.

I get this too, so much that I stopped keeping gravestones on my lots, and I used to enjoy having ghosts around. I swear it used to be that only angry or otherwise miserable ghosts would do this, but now it seems any ghost no matter mood will just immediately go and break every breakable object on the lot. Disappointed


I have a graveyard / underground club that I got from the gallery and edited, gave it the Haunted lot trait. Whenever ghosts spawn, within minutes every sink and toilet on the lot will be spewing water....
