Yes, it does. It's going longer and longer, and it stays grey.

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] [SW] Game crash when 'Freshen up at the Dweling'

★★★★★ Novice

Well, i can also add a bit more info.

I was also, like Kefi says, able to go past it, once ..

I just hung around. Did a bit of exploring, talked to locals, flirted with a female Stormtrooper, blew all my money in the Cantina (lol), did some exploring, went to the resistance, came back. So i spent like almost 2 real-life hours in-game.
Went back to 'refresh'. I saw in the job panel, with the mission progress, that i had fulfilled the task. So i instantly canceled 'Refreshing'.
My guy came out of the rabbit hole. All was good. Closed the game without saving.

When i restarted my save, it crashed again on 'refreshing' without fulfilling the task.
I will try again, tomorrow.

Star wars: game freezes everytime I click "Freshen up" in Batuu

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Hi, I have 2 people in my household and I try to freshen them up as part of the "Welcome to Batuu" objective. Everytime they enter The Dwelling at Black Spire Outpost, the whole game completely freezes and I have to restart it. I have tried changing all my game settings/graphics, tried freshening both sims together and seperate. Nothing stops it from freezing. Everything else I do in Batuu (so far) hasn't frozen the game. Planning outfits and woohooing in The Dwelling doesn't cause it to freeze and I'm able to order food from Dockinf Bay 7, however can't do this. I will add if any more information if I come across it but so far this is my stressful experience of the new pack☹lol

Some more information: It appears as if the bug is only tied to the welcome mission "Freshen Up" task.  I too had the bug with my game.  I used a cheat to set that requirement in order to get past it locking up my game.  After that, I could freshen up as often as needed and no lock-ups.  I did not try a second sim yet.

Thank you!! I’ll try cheat code!!! Do you mind sharing the cheat code if you can’t in chats since I don’t know the rules can you like link page with cheat code? I visit Carl’s sim and VIPsim so I’m familiar with cheats.

Hey having the same issue. It is on a previously created save file as well.

 

My queue does get super long right before the game freezes but is empty save for the dwelling icon.

Same issue on Xbox1.  "Freshen up" game freezes.  

 

You'd think they would have caught this is testing...if they do testing.
