[ Edited ]
★★★ Newbie

Yesterday a old lady died in a bar and everybody was sad. After a houre the body is still lying on the floor and grim reaper stays outside the bar.

My household cant get home, because someone was "dying".

Later a second woman died at the same place and still grim reaper wont come inside to collect the souls.

Anyone els had that problem?

Going to close this as while it still seems to be happening it seems more than a random issue.

 

Just use this solution if it happens

 

Try testingcheats true and then shift-click on Grim Reaper/bodies and choose reset (debug)

 

Resetting the Sim with resetsim firstname lastname might also work

Grim reaper won't leave

A sim died during a dinner party and the grim reaper won't leave. He is moving around and talking with my household but won't leave.

Got this problem in my house, around 14 sims days ago the guy died.

The grim reaper is just standing there and will not take away the died person.

I can not do anything right now because its all blocked due the fact that the death guy needs to be removed.

Hi,

 

This is just for completing the Thread.

 

Just in case someone who isn't used to cheat in the Sims, you have to press [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[C] 

A console bar (top left) appears where you can type:

 

testingcheats true

once done a message appears that "cheats are enabled"
(to disable it, put false instead of true)

 

Now go through your household with [SPACE] and [SHIFT]+Click the dead Body.
When "Oject Reset (Debug)" appears click it, this should make the dead body disappear.
At least this worked for me. Props to Crin !! Thank you!

 

I think it went buggy because the son of my dying charakter was being borned/still a baby and so couldn't interact.

 

At least I hope your problem gets solved like that.

 

btw great game, still buggy(floating forks) but fun!

 

BR

Hi, I'm having the same problem. My sim died of hysteria, and the Grim Reaper arrived....He just stands there, doing nothing. She's been lying on the ground, dead, with the grim reaper just standing there for so long that she died -AGAIN- of old age. Cheats aren't working, I can't open my household and resetting the sim isn't doing anything. I just built a new house with no saves inbetween, so quitting without saving isn't an option... help? :c
