@pastelbat88 For all Sims or only certain ones ? Did you give them any reward traits that may account for the behavior ?

Happy Gaming

Re: The needs aren't going down properly

@pastelbat88 I think I've seen this on PS5 also. Sometimes my sims needs do not go down like they should, and are still up doing things at 3 am because they aren't tired. I play on speed 2 a lot. Have you traveled to another lot with the sim?

@crinrict I only play as one sim but even when I removed that save and created a new sim still does it. No because I don't like using things that stop sims getting hungry or needing the toilet or sleep.

@PoptartJuniper I've moved them to different lots. Deleted the sim and started a new sim in different worlds. I keep getting the same thing

@pastelbat88 My sims needs would reset back to normal, but I don't remember what triggered it. It did keep happening though, so possibly is a bug.

I do shut my console completely down at night, so maybe the restarts stopped it for a little while. I'll have to keep an eye out for possible triggers when I play.

I do think this just may be a bug, since I have seen this and just thought it was a random weird thing, but perhaps others have seen this in their games also and can click the "Me Too" on the report.

 


Edit: Do your sims have the "High Energy Lifestyle" at all?

@pastelbat88 Some needs are definitely connected to their daily activities like, if you go jogging, your hygiene is likely to go down faster or Sims not getting tired as usual after they went fishing because they feel probably more relaxed. Maybe this is the case?

@PoptartJuniper Mine haven't reset back to normal no matter what I do so I definitely think it is a bug they need to fix. It really puts me off playing because I like my sims to have routine but it doesn't work when their needs aren't working properly

 

@Japanic2012 No it's definitely not linked to that. Those kinds of things I expect. But when they have been at work all day and the sleep hasn't gone down at all or the eating and toilet needs. Those things should be going down

@pastelbat88 That sounds strange indeed. Are you at least able to force your needs down by drinking water all day or doing physical training extensively?

@Japanic2012 I don't know. Not tried that. Will see if that still makes them go down next time I play. It is definitely a bug. I just don't know how to get anyone to fix it

 

@Japanic2012 Just checked and yes, I can force the needs down by doing that.

@pastelbat88 Has your Sim ever been to Selvadorada in Jungle Adventure and got turned into a skeleton at some point? As a skeleton, all your needs are being reset to max, some even don't decay unless you turn into human again (see SkeletonBuff01.jpg). Can you check if you are able to change cloths or interact with other Sims in a normal fashion? Usually this "curse" wears off after several hours (or several days if you are "lucky") but I believe there has been some reports (and workarounds) of the hidden skeleton buff not being removed properly even after turning back to human.
