[OPEN] NPC's not interacting on community lots/ despawning too fast

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Español
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.55
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to any community lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? NPC Sims spawn, go to the lot, do a little stuff and then leave almost immediately. Plus, they don't seem to interact with other in bar EVEN if you modify the game tunning to make them socialize more.
What do you expect to see? Sims interacting with each other.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. 1.55

Ok, so everything worked perfectly with 1.54 patch. I installed 1.55 patch, opened my game and one of the first things I did was going to StrangerVille bar, once I arrived I saw two things:

 

1) NPC's spawned and despawned really fast.

 

2) Because of that, they don't have time to arrive to the lot, and if they do, they literally, go to the lot, do maybe one or two interactions and after they leave. 

 

I thought it could be a mod error, so I unistalled them and modify the "socialize_asbackup" file and the  "buff_AutonomyMod_Socialize_AsBackup" file to make Sims socialize again. I've been playing with that thing modified by a long time and it always worked. Well, this time  it didn't worked. Even if I play with ONLY that mod installed.

I think this bug is back again. Sims on community lots spawn and despawn so fast that is almost impossible for the to socialize.

I noticed that Sims have stopped autonomous  talking during meals at home. Also party guests stay silent.

Yup, it is somewhat back. I am in Sulani. and a group of sims have just been standing there doing nothing bot moving their heads for like 8 in-game hours. However, some sims still do move and interact, so it's not as drastic as it used to when this first happened, but it's definitely back in some lessor form.

Ok, this is worse than I thought. Literally, every community lot have this problem in my game. NPC's spawn, some go to the lot and leave almost immediately while others just never move. Frown

Same problem for me, especially sims that are sitting down wont socialize at all, for example sims in lounges, when sitting and eating a meal or sims sitting at a bar. Sims also keep leaving lots, even worker sims.

I have this problem as well. When Sims are together they are very "passive". They don't engage with eachother, they don't talk anymore and the community lots became quite creepy with sims standing there doing pretty much nothing.
