[OPEN] [S] Sims mopping outside during rainstorms

[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

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 is your current game version number? 1.46.18.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Hire a maid and watch them while it's raining and there are puddles outside (usually near a garden with sprinklers)
What happens when the bug occurs? The maid starts mopping up puddles. Unfortunately, those puddles return while she's still mopping.
What do you expect to see? Maids not mopping puddles outdoors while it's raining.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Seasons.

This isn't a Mod issue, it's an AI issue.  I have free services, so I don't care how long they stay, others however may get very large bills from maids mopping outdoors while it's raining all day.

I think any Sims (it's not just the maids) attempting to mop up puddles outdoors during thunderstorms is a general AI issue that bears looking into.

Could you check if the maid has the neat trait ? Does it happen with every maid you hire ?

Yes she does have the neat trait, I can remove it and replace it with another trait and see if it happens next time she cleans while it's raining and there are puddles outside.

I'm guessing it has to do with the neat trait so, yeah, that would be useful testing.

In my game, it's not just maids that do this interaction, but the Sims of my current household as well. It may be a general AI issue, probably something with the latest patch.

I had a sim mopping the ground outside during a storm. She doesn't have the neat trait, but the puddle was on a concrete path, not on bare grass. So maybe they counted it as a floor to mop?

Added this as needs input to see if others see this and with what kind of Sims.

I have had a sim child with the slob trait go mop a puddle outside under the snow. Many sims do this so it is not just sims with the Neat trait.
