Re: Vacuum Cleanor from Pets stop working after platforms

Hi, I had the same problem today but like with any bugged item (food from the BBQ that you can't delete etc) just go into build mode and draw a wall across it. Make sure that bb.moveobjects cheat is OFF! Hope that helps - it's worked for me!

I'm having the same problem. Vacuum will NOT return to dock no matter what I do unless I go to build mode and physically put it there myself after each cleaning. How annoying.

@goldenrosegames I've had the same problem. It seems to get stuck in areas with limited space (bathroom/foyer). It appears as though it is only "checking" for a path in about a 90 degree arc, not a full 360 degrees.

@vcollin I always put mine in a closet with double doors. The one time it would not return to dock, it was evidently due to docking bay being too close to the wall - I thought it would make it easier for it to be a half tile from door, but nope. Didn't bother my Sim upgrading it, but the Roomba wanted to be away from that wall and didn't mind the door at all.

I'm just confused why does this topic have seasons label, when seasons pack doesn't have a vacuum of any kind (I know because I own seasons). I think it should be [CD] for Cats and Dogs, where the vacuum is from, not [S] for (I think) Seasons. Or both [CD] [S], since maybe it's a combo.

@hockeydoc08 Yep, the leash rack, even when sized down can be a problem. There's also one wall-mounted coatrack that can cause problems for anything underneath.
