Sims Autonomously Overwriting Paintings

★★★ Novice

Right, so I have a sim with the Painting skill, he's in a room with an easel, and he's got the Inspired mood. Every so often, he'll autonomously go to the easel and paint on it, as expected. However, sometimes he'll paint on it while there's a painting still on it, with the result being the painting already on the easel is overwritten; it doesn't show up in his inventory, in the build/buy mode inventory, and he doesn't gain any money, so it's not simply being sold; it just vanishes. What I would expect to happen is for the Sim to not be able to autonomously paint on an easel when something is on it, or for the painting on it to at least get sold beforehand. I have also tested this on a fresh save, with no CC/Mods, and the issue still exists.

 I am also seeing the same problem, for me its just 1 Sim, he starts a new painting as soon as he finishes last one causing the old one to just vanish. It is not in his own or family inventory, I do not seem to get any money for old painting just charged for new paintings.

@Shadedergon197  @loyabe There seems to be issues with the painting skill and I'm not aware of what you are describing. You can check bug reports  and if you don't see your problem you can create a bug report.

@Shadedergon197 @loyabe what traits does the Sim that does it have ?

Do you have any NAP active that could account for the behavior ?

The Sim in my game has the Self absorbed, Gloomy and Perfectionist traits, never had any Nap active in this game. I did not make this Sim, I got him from the homeless section.

I will tell my sim to paint (she in the artist career) and she will create a painting and then instantly scrap the painting before I can do anything else. It’s incredibly frustrating when I had her working on a reference painting that would be impossible to recreate because it just happened to be a perfect moment
