My sims live in strangerville, the upper plateau. They have completed the mystery. They refuse to jog.

It is autumn, 4 of 7, warm and sunny.

Happens for me, too, in any world/neighborhood/lot, in any kind of weather, and I don't even have StrangerVille. I've been having this issue for more than a year. It seems completely random for the most part. I can say, though, that it seems to occur frequently when their needs status changes. For instance, if they are jogging and their hygiene changes from green to yellow, or fun goes from yellow to red, it can coincide with the sudden cancellation of the jogging action and instant outfit change. I feel it may be linked to an overall mood change. I.e. receiving a tense "needs amusement" moodlet from dropping to a low fun need, which causes the sim's overall mood to change from happy to tense, in the middle of a jog. Or going for an "energized jog" while energized, and the energized mood dropping off to a happy mood while in the middle of the jog.

Anyone else know what to do about this? My sims will only jog for a couple of seconds and then immediately change back into their regular clothes and stop.

I'm playing a family living in Brindleton Bay so I only tested there in the home lot when I posted.

 

I sent one of my family to a random lot in Windenburg and she completed the jog just fine.  So weird.

@queenofsprinkles and this is just going jogging alone or a dog ? With a teen or adult ?

Not sure if there's a current thread for BB. There's so many jogging issues :D

I'm having this issue too, my adult sims in Oasis Springs jog a short while then just stop. If I restart they won't jog for more than a few seconds, even if its an Energized Jog or Push the Limits. I tried jogging in different neighborhoods and cities, its the same no matter where they go.

Young adult, no animals, completely alone.

I'm having this too but I can get them to jog eventually although it may take a few tries. This is in Henford-on-Bagley. I think it might have something to do with the jogging sim not being controlled actively when they stop jogging on their own just like I've seen sims drop activities they were supposed to do when I switch control to another sim.
