[OPEN] Sim wants to leave work early (message)

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

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? 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All but laundry, toddler stuff, kids room, romantic garden, perfect patio, and luxury party
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Sim is at work and luckily now a menu shows up if they are allowed to leave work happens 2 times during a work day
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims go to work and after a few hours you'll get a menu saying they want to leave (very annoying when you have a lot of sims working)
What do you expect to see? Sims wont pester me with constant messages that they want to leave work ( i have to work full days too...deal with it XD)
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. It happened either after the 1st patch in November or after installing Get Famous

Made a separate topic for this bug. https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Sims-wont-stay-fat/td-p/7188307

It's my male sim that's having the trouble my female sim seems to be doing fine. I'm not sending him to work with a lunch pack or anything.

I have never used any mods or CC in my game

I've tested this on the save and I think it has to do with the stylist (and possibly other careers of that type).

Still investigating.

 

@Mogway

 

Did it start from the beginning or only after he reached a certain level ?

I'm testing a new save right now to see if I can duplicate there.

Could you make him switch jobs to a random non-active one (like the first ones we had) to see if it also occurs ?

he got in at lvl 3 btw think he accepted a "career move" option through the fame thing. changed to the entertainment career also starts at lvl 3

 

@crinrict

edit: he also gets the leave work one in the entertainment career Frown  it's close to the end of his work shift though 10 more minutes to go and he wants to leave work

And you always get the message ? He doesn't simply come home ?

 

I've tested this on a new save now and can't duplicate, so it seems something is going on with that specific Sim.

 

I'll test him on a new save

 

For now, I will tag your thread as needs input to see if anyone else has a Sim with this issue (unrelated to Lunch Packs)

would be weird if its just him i did download him but i dont think any cc came with it. i've started a new game too but she hasnt gone to work yet...i did have some kids leave school for no reason in another saved game, but it also had that sim in it as a dad so perhaps he is causing trouble... maybe the game is telling me to use different sims lol

 

edit: made a completely new sim no trouble at all with work...will import him to a house too in that game and see what happens

I tried him in a new save, no issue .. Really don't know what's going on with him

 

Maybe someone else has another Sim that has the same issue.
