Hmm, I'm not seeing this in my own game when children place table mats and unfortunately didn't catch all of the livestream. Have you seen this in your own game? Can you specify what interactions you're seeing it occur with, or which specific objects? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks much!

Sure can.

1) - Start watching from 30:00 min. when the child is ordered to set up the table. The child will hop on the Bar Chair first before setting up the table.

And 2) - whatch from 47:30 min. when the teanager gets ordered to set-up the table. You will see that the Teanager will sit down at the table first and then continue to set-up the table. And yes, I saw that in my game as well.


And here is the Vid for a faster location.

Sims wonder around before doing assigned task

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, and free stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Assign a sim to do something, like read a book, watch tv or work out.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim wonders into another room, without the object they are supposed to interact with, pauses, just stands there or sits on a chair or bed, and then goes to do the assigned task.
What do you expect to see? I expect the sim to go directly to the assigned task.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

I had this problem before installing Seasons or Cats and Dogs. It stopped for a while but recently started again. It may happen more often with more sims on the lot or in the household. However, it does not seem to be related to other sims getting in the way. For example, if I tell a sim to read a book they might walk into a room that doesn't have a bookshelf, sit down in a chair and then get up and go to the bookshelf in another room and get a book. No other sims had interactions with the bookshelf or were blocking access to the bookshelf.

This is a very old issue and unfortunately still isn't fixed.
