Re: Digital sketchpad and Fridge glitches

@shmiel26 Please use this thread for the sketchpad: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Sims-reset-using-the-Digitalistic-Sketchpad/td-p/9...

Could you edit your post to just be about the left-overs ? Think that's an older bug actually but afair, there's no bug report for it yet.

There should be one post per issue in the bug forum

Thank you

Mine is stranger: If they make a Grand Meal, use the spells Delicioso or Grand Delicioso, or use their cauldrons to make a mac and cheese, and I put it away in the fridge, they will take them out as leftovers like usual, but the food never finishes. Their Hungry meter fills but they will sit and keep on eating and the food is unlimited. One Sim sat and ate her turkey leftovers from a Thanksgiving Grand Meal for 15 minutes until I manually clicked her to stop and clean up the plate which she scraped into the garbage and washed the plate.

@DDWard1972 Is your game updated to the newest patch ?

 

If so, please create your own thread (sounds like a different issue)

Same issue, sure appeared after the latest patch.
There's excellent food on the dining table two steps away from a hungry sims (no traits like Vegetarian to affect prioroties, no food-based lifestyles, no routing issues).
There's excellent food in the fridge too (no routing issues), but sims autonomously cook 1 serving meal or grab quick meal when hungry.

Re: [TROUBLESHOOT] No longer autonomously grab leftovers

★★ Guide

I've got this issue now after 1.68 ... Family with 2 adults (one's a vampire and doesn't eat food) and 2 kids. Kids will grab quick meals and the adult will cook new meals, and quite often interrupt herself while cooking only to grab a quick meal or start cooking something else. Neither will eat leftovers unless I move the food out on the counter. Need to do some more testing, but since I suspected it was because it couldn't "see" the old food from before the update I cooked a bunch of new food, but they still grab quick meals and cook new rather than eat leftovers.

 

EDIT: Replaced the fridge with a different model. First kid to grab food from the fridge got leftovers. Then they both went to school. After coming home they're back to getting quick meals instead of leftovers. Confused

same issue with my game. When they’re hungry they will eat a quick meal or try to cook, even with leftovers in the fridge.

Please describe the patch or change you made. Latest update.

I have a multitude of different leftover meals in the fridge but they make something new instead. And if they choose to cook on a grill they will get themselves into a loop so when the food is finished, instead of eating the food they have just prepared, they will instead make more food.
