[PS4] [CL] Time Flow Problem

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.12
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Seasons Cats & Dogs City Living Parenthood Dine Out Toddler Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play a single-Sim household in a San Myshuno apartment and have them go to sleep or go to work during a Festival in their district (Example: Spice Festival in Spice Market district) and continue to sleep or stay at work after the Festival ends.
What happens when the bug occurs? While all of your household's Sims are sleeping, even without a festival in the district, time will be unable to fast forward as it normally would. Instead, you can only go up to normal Ultra Speed and must set time flow to that speed manually. This also happens when all Sims are at work or out of the apartment.
What do you expect to see? Time should automatically go into Ultra Speed and Ultra Speed time flow should be increased when you have no Sims to control that are at home or awake.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

This bug just randomly showed up and is now persistant in my save file. Saving and exiting, as well as relaunching the application, does nothing.
