[OPEN] [S] Sim keeps raking leaves

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Newbie

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? Expansions: all of them Game packs: Spa Day, Dine out! and Wild life Stuff Packs: Cool kitchen, Spooky, Luxury Party & Perfect Patio
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Make your sim rakes leaves on a windy day
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim will prioritize raking leaves and if there's a dog in the household, petting action queues up (but the sims is too busy raking leaves ofc) The sim will starve, pee their pants and so on to keep raking the leaves.
What do you expect to see? I tell my sim to rake leaves, but that she will not try to starve because the leaves are more important.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

The traditional reset does not do anything to stop my sim. Only a hard reset via commands (and not the action menu you get from shift+clicking your sim) will work.

Don't think it needs to be a windy day. The issue here seems that every pile is their own interaction, so if you cancel one, they just move on to the next.

Seen this in my game too.

The pet queuing has a thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Pet-Filling-Queue-Task-List/m-p/6699614#M60331

Ah yes, I saw that thread sometime after I posted, so I now know that's an unrelated bug. 

 

Still kinda sucks that my Sim starved herself and her animals to keep the lawn clean¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Doing a hard reset on my Sim worked for me. So you'll just have to enable cheats, open the cheat window (ctrl+shift+c) and type in "resetsim <first name> <last name>" e.g "resetsim Olivia Olsen"

And your aim should stop doing it.

 

And then avoid raking leaves until it's fixed

Have this problem too....had to exit to main menu and back into game to get them to stop....need to change this to only rake what you tell them to.

Also having this problem. First time I asked a sim to rake leaves, so that is likely why I did not notice it sooner.

 

No mods.

Turn on testing cheats, right-click the sim and they will stop doing everything they are doing.
