[OPEN] Needs decay too fast/Hard to fill (Patch 1.63.134)

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
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? 1.63.134.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, Seasons
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? By playing a household and seeing how quickly the needs bars go down into the red.
What happens when the bug occurs? Needs get fulfilled, then go quickly back down into the red. It's not a sudden crash, but they are going down noticeably faster since the June 4 patch, making it hard to keep Sims happy.
What do you expect to see? hat when a Sim's needs are fulfilled by eating, sleeping, bathing, etc., it will keep them satisfied for a reasonable time. Re: sleeping: they aren't always staying in bed till they're fully rested.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. June 3 update and June 4 patch.

I'm having the same problem. The needs are taking so long to fill as well. I feel like I can never keep on top of the social need and my Sim isn't out going so I'm not sure why it depletes so quickly or takes so long to fill.

@barbarajt27 Could you try repairing your game through Origin to see if that makes a difference.

Haven't personally had an issue with this.

Is it for all Sims and also on a fresh save if you start one for testing purposes ?

I've noticed a significant difference as well. It's taking a lot to green up now.

Exactly! It takes the Sim forever in the shower to meet the hygiene need. Eating takes forever, too.

Thanks, Crin, for the response. I wanted to repair the game yesterday, but the option wasn't showing up. I'll try again today. It seems to be for all Sims and happens even after I save, leave the game and come back in.

@barbarajt27 You need to make sure the game is closed to be able to repair

I have noticed this, too. I thought I might be imagining it at first lol! It is since the update. Needs just seem to be decaying way faster.

I noticed too that social need is decaying now way faster than normally before the recent update

I'm also having this problem. Only noticed it after the June patch. It seems to take twice as long to fill a bar and within no time at all, it's orange/red again. I've had to get a sim to sleep (full uninterrupted) three times in a 24 hour period because the needs decreased so quickly. This happened on a brand new save, created after installing Eco Living and the June update. I haven't checked old saves to see if they also have the same issue.
