@Celizabet Does your Sim have a stressed moodlet stuck on him (either in the family ?) If not, do you have any reward traits like carefree that prevent those ?

Hi Crin 

 

occasionally he’ll be stressed but not a ton. I did buy carefree for him but after the power had been off for a while

@Celizabet Does he currently have one ? Do you remember if he had one related to that event before you bought the carefree one ? Did it count down ?

I'm having this issue as well since I updated it to the latest patch, it seems to get fixed whenever I restart the game. But it happens ever so often and it's annoying that I have to keep restarting to fix the issue. I only have MCCC mod installed though, but it's the latest version.

Just happened to me. Also this is an off the grid lot.

@PansekshuElle This is what I get as well. I started on an off-the-grid lot in Sulani (don't have eco installed). I've since removed the OTG trait but no change. The 24 hour notice comes and the power is shut off. When the bills are paid, the happy music and lights come on again.
This bug is a bit of an annoyance at the moment.

This is exactly what happens to me. I started in Newcrest and got the 24 hour notice then no power. I can pay my bills just fine and the lights turn back on. I moved the family to Sulani and the same thing happened. I'm Xbox one with no mods installed.
