[OPEN] Very High Household Bills While On Vacation

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Guide

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? 1.55.108.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? CL, CD, S, GF, IL, OR, SD, DO, V, PH, JA, SV, ROM, PPSP, SSP, CKSP, MHSP, RGSP, KSPS, BYSP, BNSP, FSP, MFPSP, MSP
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Active Sims on a vacation lot when bills come due.
What happens when the bug occurs? An unusually high household bill arrives - sometimes more than one a week.
What do you expect to see? I expect the household bills to come once a week and to reflect a consistent amount based on the value of the Sims' home lot.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Sent a recently married couple to Selvadorada and they got their normal 5K bill at home right before leaving, but on a Friday (bills had always arrived on Mondays previously). Then, an additional 35K bill on a Monday while they were on vacation. I had to use a cheat code - in fact - to cover the expense!

 

I understand that some others have had this happen to their Sims while on public lots at billing time as well, although this has not happened to me.

My Sim just vacationed at Mt. Komorebi and came home to EXTREMELY high bills. 48,952 in lot taxes and 141,798 in unpaid bills! Normally my bills are around 30k!

@wilsonannier That's probably a double issue, the main one being getting bills for both lots which has been an issue since OR came out.

I moved your post over to that thread.

@wilsonannier I moved your post to the thread on high vacation bills. It's in the correct thread now.

 

(although it does sound like you also have the other issue). Just seems more appropriate here.

@crinrict Happened to me today, my Sims who live in Mt. Komorebi went on vacation in Sulani, and on their 3rd day they got hit with bills about triple what they usually pay (they live in a Tiny House at home, so low bills).
