How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? island living cool kitchen, dine out, univeristy, get famous, geto to work, gget togethor, parenthood, seasons, vampires, cats and dogs life of party, up all night.

What do you expect to see? I expect the vampire sims in that social group not to show up during the day or when its sunny unless they are immune to the sun. I dont expect them to join social groups unless it involves the night time maybe.

This happened in september. when i went to the hangout spot for my social group thing in the get togethor dlc. There were two vampires in the group and it was sunny outside. They should have not come to the hangout during the day but they did and died. The spot was the park. Sorry i dont have a picture.

This is the same as this thread I started last year: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-V-NPC-Vampires-are-staying-out-in-the-sun/m-p/8551...

 

Just for the sake of the discussion, there has never been any update attempting to fix this. The update that made sims jump into autonomy faster when spawning on a lot has helped a bit, but if you have thin skinned vamps they literally need to get their tush inside immediately. And in general vampires needs to stay at home during the day. The game won't let us call vampires during the day, so clearly it is able to check if they're vamps or not.

One of my various bugs with vampires in my game..this and the special movement issues with vampires are both broke. I actually had a vampire sim just standing out in the sun instead of getting cover. In one playthrough, the vampire died due to over sun exposure. I had to not save my game and go back to the last save and save them from dying. Makes playing a vampire sim much harder on a whole another level..lol.

 

I noticed the title also says NPC vampires. And yes, ive seen NPC and playable vampire sims do this both..so it not only effects NPC vampires, but playable vampire sims.
