[OPEN] [OR] Autonomous Stress Relief Potion on Grill Finishes On Stove

[ Edited ]
Champion

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.67.45.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Watch the NPC Hermit from Granite Falls near a grill, or enable the Self-Sufficiency NAP and invite over some NPCs with only grills and stoves available to use on the lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? The NPC will autonomously start to brew a de-stressing decoction on the grill, but when reaching the middle part of the recipe they will transition over to a stove to finish the potion.
What do you expect to see? The entire interaction only taking place on the grill and not transitioning to a stove.
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? No

The recipe for autonomous herbalism potion brewing (recipe_HerbalismPotion_StressSoother_Grill_Autonomous, tuning ID 111000) which is used by both the Granite Falls hermit in the interaction (herbalism_BrewPotion_Autonomous) and by any NPC under the influence of the Self-Sufficiency NAP version of the interaction (herbalism_BrewPotion_Autonomous_CivicPolicy) incorrectly has an ICO Transition to a stove on step 5 of the recipe.

 

This is a recipe for a grill, not for a stove. If you examine the player's version of the De-Stressing Decoction recipe (the non-autonomous version – recipe_HerbalismPotion_StressSoother_Grill, tuning ID 103858) the recipe is identical, except that it correctly has an ICO Transition to a grill on step 5.

 

The incorrect ICO Transition to a stove for the autonomous version of the recipe makes NPCs start a potion on the grill, then they pick up the pot and walk into a kitchen with a stove to continue the rest of the recipe. This shouldn't happen, as seen in the non-autonomous player controlled version of the recipe it should all take place on the grill.

I have the same thing happening as well. Except it’s random townies using my sims grill to make this potion. Those who have been invited in, will finish it on the stove and the rest of them that happen to walk by and use my grill, just leave the pot on the grill to spoil.

Random Sims Enter My House Make Destress Decoction

★★★★★ Apprentice

So some random Sim just walked into my house, then out, then back in doing a loop and started cooking on my stove. I told them to leave. Next thing I know they were cooking some destress thing. I found a cup on my back porch as well. What is going on and how do I stop them before I kill every single Sim in my game and have a mental breakdown.

You know, the first time Mortimer Goth showed up and made this on my grill I was like, "Oh, how nice!  Thanks, Morty!"  Then Bjorn Bjergson came by and made some.  Then L Faba made some.  Then some random townie came by and... reset object? I already have 3 or 4? that I can't move because I don't "own" them.  Just stop!

Every sim visiting my house uses the grill to start cooking it and then continues using the stove. The glass, however, shows up next to the grill; my garden is full of them!

I just tried this out so I'm not sure if it'll work, but if you Shift-click the mailbox and click "Instant Repeal Neighborhood Action Plan" you should be able to repeal any of the plans.

Still happening after patching to 1.69.59.1020 in a mod/cc free game.  Play on PC in English with all content released to date installed.

I have a similar problem where my sims keep cooking herbalism potions all the time!. They cook on the grill outside and leave the potions scattered about on the ground. 
They also cook on the stove in the kitchen, but don't finish cooking, so it gets stuck on the cooktop.

I have the same issue with visiting sims and paparazzi starting to cook at the grill, then coming inside to the stove and, more often than not, setting my kitchen on fire.

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

I have had this issue for a long time. It doesn't happen all the time, but often enough. I've had Guidry and Patchy also affected by this. They start to make the de-stressing concoction on the grill, then move it to the stove in the kitchen and often abandon it. If they don't abandon it, they finish making it back on the grill and then place the concoction in front of the grill. If it's an NPC that stays with you for a longer period (I.E Patchy) they'll often just go and start the process again. I've had complete strangers just randomly walk into my gated yard, do this and then leave.
