[OPEN] Routing/Sit down issue on several interactions

[ Edited ]

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 expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Make your Sim do an action like putting away food. If they see a chair they will end up using it first. This is how it looks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPIn3L0CXWE
What happens when the bug occurs? You ask the Sims to put something away, or do something, Sim gets tired while doing it and sits down, gets back up and does what was asked.
What do you expect to see? A less lazy Sim
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 

My Sims are such weirdos.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPIn3L0CXWE

The whole video is weird. The mother is done with baking cookies, while I send the daughter to the fridge with a plate of bread. The mother takes the cookies outside instead of putting it on the counter. 
Then I tell the daughter to put away the cookies that are standing outside. She goes, takes the cookies, sits down, gets up, puts the cookies away. 
My Sims do that more often, sitting down to go put something in the fridge. Why?
Could not found something about this yet. Was it already mentioned? 

They do this with the sofa, the normal table, the outdoor table, old house with the bar stools..... Sometimes they don't do it, sometimes they do.

LOL! She just did the same, took the food, went indoors to sit on the sofa, got up walked back to the fridge to put away the food. 

 

EDIT (Crin)

 

Other interaction this has been seen on

 

  1. Clean up Books
  2. Playing instruments
  3. Clean up drinks
  4. Changing Music channel (not 100% sure)

Did you try moving the family out and back in to see if it keeps happening ? Maybe moving them somewhere else to find out if it's an issue caused by the house ?

I'm having this issue since the last patch.  When I use the 'Put Away' interaction, the sim will pick up the food item, then sit down in a chair, then stand up and put the food item in the fridge.

 

Not sure if it's related, but when I use the 'clean up' on the dish in front of a seated sim, they pick up the dish, set it down, then stand up and cancel the 'clean up' interaction.  If I do the interaction again with them standing, they do it just fine.  I haven't noticed this in quite a while.  It used to happen (particularly with sitting at a kitchen bar rather than a table) a while back but I think it was a fixed bug.  Maybe it's back.

I do see the not being able to clean up from sitting but never seen them do that weird behavior you describe.

 

I have one house now where they won't clean dishes at all but another is totally fine.

 

Not sure what's going on

 

Since when hast this been happening to you @Phantomlover1717

I don't really know. 
First time I noticed them doing it was around the times GTW came out I guess. 
Not sure do. I know I noticed it for the first time around the time when my Sim was spongebobing the cookies to clean the counter. 
This one: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4-Bug-Reports/GTW-Baking-dish-bug/m-p/4500723#M12142

But also I've never had the goal to make my Sim a chef yet. I moved house again, so I can check if it still happens.

I have exactly the same bug. Sims find a near place to sit down and then go back to fridge. Moreover, my bathroom is near the kitchen, so sometimes sims go to the bath, get naked with a dish at hand, the water appears in the bath and after that the sim goes to the fridge.  Here is an example . This apparently started to happen after the last patch.

I have the same problem! Only it has to do with cleaning the dishes.

That bug was present since the beginning. Exactly the same counter placement as in your video. That endless sitting down bug happens only in this lot, where counters have rounded corners. If you remove rounded corners or change the counter placement the bug disappears. Personally, I spent a lot of time to redesign the layout until it was fixed. Almost forgot it Wink. Probably, I changed one counter type to other (different mesh, yes!). But ... the bug we talk here was not present before. Could be related?
