That just happened to me in a family where I'm trying to complete 100 generations. Grim Reaper just didn't show up, and I can't save the game. Don't know what I'll do. Probably I'll have to go back to last savegame.

 

The worst of this situation (in-game), is that all the sims in the world will get that sad mood, as the body would stay there forever.

 

Edit: Woops... By entering in the cheats (testingcheats on), I could rightclick the dead guy and then "Reset Object (Debug)". That turned him into a urn. Problem solved... Standard smile

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

I'm playing on PS4 trying to get the Black Widow trophy. If I enable cheats it will invalidate my trophy!

Please open your own thread for console. Might still be an issue there.

The Grim Reaper for me came and the left however it says my pet is still dying, and I can't do anything (such as save the game) because a sim is dying, but there is no reaper to reap my pet. Any suggestions?
