Hi @kittyybrains 


Have you set your Autonomy to "Full"?


You can have this in the game settings, under gameplay.

I have the same problem, mainly when I go somewhere with one Sim from family, so the rest of my family does not care about myself even when I click to take care of myself. After returning to the family of that sim, the needs of all family members are in red.

I'm having the same issue too even after exiting the game entirely and starting it up again. My platform is different too on a Mac.


Update: I got out of it by switching from build mode to live mode a few times. Weird bug though.
