As I can’t upload videos here, I have the link to the tweet where I first reported this bug:

https://twitter.com/laprem__/status/1325825672523243521?s=21

 

It happens frequently and randomly, I go to my Eco lot to check my sim in a hangout and either my sim or the invited sim would be stuck walking in a loop, from one side to another on the front yard of the Eco lot.

 

I don’t know how the sim gets there as I catch them only when I return to the lot during a ongoing hangout.

 

The sim will only stop walking if I click on it or call it to some action.

 

It is somewhat triggering as it looks like the sim is disturbed and anxious walking non stop from one side to another. Not a nice feeling.

I have removed all items from that first row and the bug still happens.

It happens during hobbies as well. I have just spotted my sim stuck there again 😕

@laprembee I'm still thinking it could be any of the objects on that spot that maybe blocks the Sim. I would suggest you remove one by one the plants, the tree, etc. and see if it the Sims stop getting stuck there.

@SalixCat Ok, I’ll clean that area and see what happens. But it would still be a bug anyways.

This bug actually happens more frequent than I thought.

 

@SalixCat I removed all items and I just caught the bug again. I posted the video on twitter, here is the link: https://twitter.com/laprem__/status/1326646384225869824?s=21

 

I took a picture as well:

Also the only way to remove the stuck sim from there was to do an action on the actual sim, not an object item. Had to interact/ chat with the sim then after that the sim would show up on object actions (like dancing, cooking, sofa, etc), otherwise my sim would just do all the actions alone, while the invited is at the front yard stuck on that walking loop.

@laprembee Okay, so it's not something on that spot. 
Could it be one of the items used to interact with the Sim that gets stuck?
I'm just thinking loud... remember that glitch where Sims shrink when invited to drink tea? It happens when the tea set is placed on a place where there is no enough room for both Sims to stand and drink tea.

Or the bug where toddlers levitate because the bed is blocked? It's the same thing.

@SalixCat I got new fresh info for this case! My front yard is still empty, and I just fond out that if I send my sim to the Eco lot’s “sidewalk”, no matter where, the sim gets to the spot I sent and then goes to where it gets stuck and keeps walking in loop there.

It seems that the sim thinks that the house’s entry or its way back to the house is there, but it can’t find the way back so it keeps walking and trying and it never finds the way out. You know what I mean? 


i can make a new video if you want. Just let me know.
