Restaurant Issues - sims not staying seated, no host staff showing...

★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All including newest.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Not sure.
What happens when the bug occurs? In a restaurant, under the window for managing staff, icon for HOST not showing up. I have one host but cannot bring him up via this window because there is not link to HOST.
What do you expect to see? A link to bring up my staff HOST.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I am not sure but it may be related to the latest patch. I have not played this restaurant much until the last week when I noticed it's acting strangely.

A few things just started happening to my restaurant. It was running fine up until this week. 

  1. I can not access the "Host" staff to hire, fire, change (although I do have a host now)
  2. Sim customers sit but then get up and mingle and will not stay seated to give their food order and then complain for the wait.
  3. Sims keep getting up to do push-ups next to their tables. 
  4. It seems when my restaurant owners go to a table to check on it or interact at all it queues the sims to stand up to talk to them. Then they won't sit back down. 

*No changes have been made to my system.

Hi @MysticTigg


Thanks for making this report. In your opening post there's a mention of what sounds like 3/4 separate issues. We may already have active dedicated bug report thread opened for some of these. You can double-check using the "Compiled list of reported issues", as well as using the search function at the top of the page.


If there isn't an active thread dedicated to each of the bugs you're experiencing here, please go ahead and create a new bug report, one per each individual bug. That way, we can track things easier and provide relevant information regarding the specific bug.


I'll lock this thread in the meantime so as not to split up the information from those dedicated bug reports or to muddle issues together.
