@tmborah1976 I see this has already 2 me toos but I can't duplicate this so I needs some more info

- What kind of Sim is your Sim ? Mermaid ? Also for the Sim you sing too
- Can you duplicate this on a different household ?
- What world are you playing in and does hit happen everywhere ?
- Are you just singing or using an instrument ? If it's the latter, which one ?

@crinrict I have this issue. Just a regular Sim and this happened a few times it was autonomously queued.

@hestiah23 So similar to the homework freeze.

@tmborah1976 was yours also autonomously ?

@crinrict They range n ages but all are regular sims. They r standing not using any instruments. Yes full autonomously. And all of my sims live on the island from the last EP.

 I have tried n 3 different households all full autonomously all have the same thing happen.

@tmborah1976 Does it happen if you tell them to serenade or only if they do it on their own ? Just to be sure.

@crinrict No worries, I will try to queue it and see if it happens. But only on autonomously queued singing action I have seen it. If that makes sense.

@tmborah1976 Makes a lot of sense as the homework freeze also only happens if autonomously done.

I know this was not directed to me but I thought I would chime in since I have had it happen in more that one household.

 

I have had this issue with 2 households, same save file though.  

 

1st Household lived in Newcrest. 2 Humans, no instruments, autonomous action. The whole household would get stuck if they serenaded each other, which was at least once a day. It was a 7 sim household, very annoying. Both sims were creatively inclined so I think that is why they did it so much. 

 

2nd Household lived in Sulani: Mermaid and human, autonomous action again, would happen a lot less but it did happen a few times. 

 

This only started happening to me when I installed Get Famous and Island Living a few weeks ago (I got them on the same day), or I should say that is when I noticed it happening.

I've been having the exact same issue. Unless I keep both sims busy (they're a married couple), they will serenade each other nonstop and cause the entire house to freeze until the action is cancelled.
