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? 126.96.36.1990
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I have all the expansions, game packs, and stuff packs installed.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? This is PREVIOUS to the update- My pets disappear and show that they are at another lot randomly: Be in Live mode and try to take your dog on a walk or interact with them and then stop. CAS: When the main menu loads, choose the new game option to enter CAS. The screen is white for a while (the longest it's been for me is five minutes.), and then the Sim does not appear, but you can hear them talking. Quit Story Mode and the same thing occurs. Loading a saved game: After choosing a save file, it loads to the worlds screen, where you can choose what Sim to play. Choose what Sim to play and it loads for a long time (it did this to me for thirty minutes). You can hear the Sim moving and doing things.
What happens when the bug occurs? Pet Issue: I stop interacting or I take them on a walk, they disappear. CAS: I can't make a new Sim and I can't make it back to the main menu because it is stuck on a white screen. Saved Game: I go to play a Sim and the game will not load, but I can hear the Sim moving in the background doing things.
What do you expect to see? Pet Issue: I expect my pet to stay home unless I send them out or I travel with them. CAS: I expect to be able to make a new Sim. Saved Game: I expect to be able to play the game.
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? No
The pet problem happened before the newest patch update. I can't test to see if it's still happening because of the new issues that have been occurring after the newest patch update. I was also going to include screenshots, but the game is being so laggy and glitchy that it won't take a proper screenshot on my laptop.
