game doesn't generate a crash report because it is too locked up from the issue

I am having the same problem.  The only way out for me was to shut down my computer manually, I couldn't get to my task manager.  This happened twice and I am not trying again.  This pack is unplayable for me.  I sent a Sim from a family I have been playing for the last two years and I don't want to start over and shouldn't have to. Very frustrated because since the last patch I have been experiencing a lot of bugs.  Freelance career is shot, gardening is messed up and now this.

Marked as Solution for Visibility. This is still an open issue.


 

So, after some testing the cause might have been found

 

It's the Steel Bladder trait (thanks to MCCC Discord folks for helping me figure that out)

 

Could everyone try to remove the trait and see if it then works

 

traits.remove_trait trait_SteelBladder

 

after Batuu, add it again with 

 

traits.equip_trait trait_SteelBladder

 

Don't know if this disables achievements for console players. It doesn't need testingcheats.

If you don't have the steel bladder on the Sim, do you have any other traits that help with bladder/hygiene needs or set them to frozen with cheats ?

 

Possible other traits

 

  • Antiseptic
  • ForeverFresh
  • NeverWeary (possibly with sleeping)

Ha ! Confirmed, Crin. 
Yep, that's it. My guy was able to freshen up, 6 times in a row.

What is an old and new save game file?

@alyssabriseno Old would be the one you have the issue on, new is starting a fresh save by pressing the new button on the main menu.

If you have this issue, could you try my suggestion above ?

Hi Crin, thank you once again!  I removed the steel bladder trait, but that didn't work, so I then removed all the hygiene traits I had plus Seldom Sleepy.  The ones I removed were Antiseptic, Forever Fresh, Seldom Sleepy and Steel Bladder.  That did the trick.  I was able to freshen up without issue several times.

 

Just a side note, this happened every time last night too, when she comes out of the dwelling my icon switches to another player who is at home.  It's annoying but I can deal with it, just thought I would mention it.

 

Thanks again for all of your hard work.
