[WORKAROUND] [OR] Crawling insects in Granite Falls are invisible (laptop mode)

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.72.28.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work Outdoor Retreat Laundry Day Fitness Romantic Garden Movie Hangout Spooky Cool Kitchen Perfect Patio Luxury Party Holiday Celebration Country Kitchen Kit
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to Granite falls and look in all the usual places. You will find flying insects or no insects. The crawling insects no longer appear anywhere.
What happens when the bug occurs? I go to my usual insect collection locations and only find flying insects or no insects.
What do you expect to see? I expect to find ladybugs, fire ants etc but they no longer generate.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I have a young adult sim who is trying to collect insects.  It seems all the crawling insects that I used to easily collect are missing from Granite falls. I go to the usual collection spots and find only flying insects or no insects.  Not sure when this started as its been a few weeks (real time, not sim time) since I sent sims there for vacation.

@simaphobe To be sure it's not an issue of them just going invisible, are you playing on laptop mode ?

 

Have you tried if the cursor changes anywhere on those places even if you don't see anything ?

I was indeed in laptop mode.  Turning it off has fixed the problem.  I never would have guessed that to be the culprit.  Thankyou so much.

@simaphobe Still sounds like a bug. Probably same issue the frogs/fish currently have

Had exactly same issue, turning off the laptop mode seem to have helped! Glad I found this thread, through it’d be nice for this bug to be patched…

@simaphobe Also have this, i think turning off laptop mode isnt a good work around especially with how much more preforment the game is with it on
