[OPEN] Group Cooking: Sims just stands around

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

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? 1.77.131.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get together, discover university, get famous, dine out, movie night stuff, spa day, parenthood, cats and dgos, seasons, get to work,
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? If you try out group cooking. If you try to cook with a family member.
What happens when the bug occurs? I've tried this a few times but every time I try to cook a meal together with another family member, one of them just takes out a bowl or some cooking gadgets and just stands there while the other sim cooks the whole meal. Pretty sure they're supposed to cook together and not let only one of them do the job? Or is it because they have different cooking skill levels?
What do you expect to see? Both of the sims should cook and then form a whole meal in the end. If it cooking together they should cook together and not let just one of the sims cook while the other one just stands there.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Here is the screenshot. Its not a really good one tho.

What I've learned is there has to be enough counter space for them all to cook. In one house where I had two sims and one counter, one read a cook book while the other cooked which makes sense.. but add more sims into the mix and they all just sort of grab items to cook with and then stand around.

Tights spaces can of course be an issue, especially if you don't have enough counter space for everyone.

@Evierosalina You need a rather large kitchen and empty counter space for it to work properly. Do you have no issues with two adults on the same lot ?

@crinrict I have the same issue, the children are just a step behind and chat with mother or father but they don't cook. 

 

If I let 2 or 3 adult sims cooking it works .. a bit clunky with 3 Sims but it works.

@EvierosalinaI have this issue too. Sims just stand around while the one sim cooks, or only join in after the cooking is almost finished. Mostly sims just gather around the fridge for 10 minutes, stare into the air and wait for one sim  to take ingredients out of the fridge and finish cooking.
