@lady8jane Mine don't start cooking something else. Mine cook *one* proper nice meal, then leave it abandoned on the counter while they grab a snack.

Thanks knowing that others are experiencing this at least gives me hope. I looked this up and couldn't find anything on it so I was beginning  worry that it was unique to my save and I would have to start over in order to fix it.

@IngeJones Yeah, they either start cooking something else or they grab a snack or they do something else entirely and then later start cooking again. I end up with a lot of not or half eaten plates in my house at the moment. The toddlers like it, but I as a player am pretty annoyed.

As a new player of Sims 4, I am experiencing this as well. It only started AFTER I bought Sims 4 Discover University. I was still playing my starter family and had a child age into a teen. I bought the expansion in anticipation of going to college but had not played Discover University yet nor visited. This was with no mods at the time. I bought Sims 4 base game on 11/8/2020 and Discover University on a later date.


Also, public picnic tables and the ground around the public grills are loaded with food NPSs/townies are making.

I like to say the game is more or less unplayable with sims going to make food as soon as they are a just a bit little hungry (yellow bar) All the food making is driving me crazy. 

Only fun for me is building. But I can't contunie on any game play I planned when my little family of 4 leaves food all over the small house.

Please describe the patch or change you made. it started after the november patches for snowy escape

This is a bunch of connected issues/bugs.

hungry sims who start cooking autonomiusly don't eat the food. still hungry.
hungry sims don't eat prepared food standing on counters or tables by themselfes (A.I.).
hungry sims never eat leftovers. always prepare new food (and/or then don't eat it), then only eat fastfood.

sims start cooking, then putting fresh made food directly in the fridge, still hungry, because they don't eat leftovers
sims start cooking (f.e. cutting vegies) but can't continue (f.e. to put vegies in the bowl on the same counter) because of routing issues(?) (i checked the counter, i found no issues because of f.e. moveobjects intersecting or something.)

ah yes, and they still don't eat at the table. standing up and eat somewhere else. so this fix is a hoax.

When my sim is hungry, they won't stop making food!

★★ Novice

Hi all! Basically the bug I'm having since the last major update with snowy escape has to do with cooking and eating. I have full autonomy on for my sims. When they're hungry, they'll go to the fridge/grill to make a meal. When they're finished, they instantly go to the fridge/grill again to make a second meal. And then a third, and a fourth. This cycle ends once they grab a quick meal from the fridge, which obviously isn't ideal as they'll get an unbalanced meals moodlet and they're wasting simoleons and time! All my sims are doing this! Help!!
