Sims no longer able to drink & have a meal at the same time

★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.71.84.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All but kits & batuu
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try to drink & eat at the same time.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims very often only eat until they finish the drink, and then place the plate of food down without eating it further.
What do you expect to see? Sims once again being able to drink & eat at the same time.
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 

This came with one of the recent patches. This is easiest to see in a restaurant, all npc customers foods will despawn half eaten. They eat a few bites, finish their drink, and then drop the eating from their que. Same happens to all played sims if I try to have them drink while having a meal.

@LuisLTPG "If the Sim finishes their drink first, they'll stop eating and clean up the glass and forget about the half-eaten meal."

The only exception I have noticed is in a restaurant if the wait-staff takes the finished drink away quickly enough. Then, the active Sim and NPC guest will continue eating. (Other NPCs seem to continue eating until done there as well.)

Maybe because they don't get the urge to clean up the glass themselves?

Just mentioning it in case it will help the devs isolate and fix the bug more quickly.

Zipped lips My temporal solution is let my Sim take 3 bites on the food then click the drink, It is irritating but the only solution.

How can it be that after so long this continues to happen? The only way to fix it that I found was to use a mod that corrects it, but obviously it should not be like that. Frown

@sinbahiba "Finish eating restaurant", by Bienchen mods, has always worked very well for me, but now since the last patch I have noticed that they take too long to eat, they drink fast, they talk and finally they finish their food, it works, although as I say they take longer now, but of course it is much better than without mod, because they will never eat!
