It should just purge the active Sims inventory but double check before you save the game (or make a backup)

[NEEDS INPUT] [S] Flower stuck in kids inventory on love day

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.50.67.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Expansion packs - All. Game packs - All except Strangerville and parenthood. Stuff packs - Cool kitchen stuff, laundry day, luxery party, perfect patio, romantic garden, spooky stuff, vintage glamour
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Step 1 - Wait for Love day Step 2 - Have kid give another kid a flower as a love day gift Step 3 - Attempt to sell remaining flowers in stack Step 4 - See how you can't select said flowers Step 5 - Attempt to drag flowers to another sim's inventory Step 6 - Notice how nothing happens
What happens when the bug occurs? Flowers are locked in kid's inventory until you travel or there is a change in household (such as a new sim moving in). Game reload fixes the problem until the next love day.
What do you expect to see? You should be able to sell or move flowers out of a kids inventory
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Note: Other kid my kid gave flowers to was not in the household, I don't know if that makes a difference.

HI @Stettafire 

 

does it just happen on love day or general flower gift giving ? What about other gifts ?

 

Also just for children ?

Just children as far as I can tell, my two adults didnt seem to have this problem. Will get back to you to see if it's the same for non-love day gift giving.

Inventory bug?

How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.52.100.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, get together, dine out, jungle adventure, laundry day stuff, spooky stuff, city living, get famous, get to work, seasons, outdoor retreat, parenthood, spa day, backyard stuff, cool kitchen stuff, luxury party stuff, movie hangout stuff, perfect patio stuff, romantic garden stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know. Maybe have a stack of something in your inventory and try to sell it...
What happens when the bug occurs? I can't sell what I have in my inventory. Can't place/plant it either.
What do you expect to see? I expect to be able to sell what I have in my inventory. I also expect to be able to plant it.

My sims harvested her roses and had around 45 in her inventory and I couldn't sell the stack so I started selling them one by one. Now she has 15 roses left in her inventory that I can't sell OR plant. I get the arrow icon not the hand so I can't sell the stack or the roses individually and I can't place them in the world or plant them. I tried restarting the game but it didn't help... I don't know "how often it happens" as it has only happened this once... but I can't get rid of it so... 50%

Re: Inventory bug?

I've seen this happen when giving flowers as gifts. How ever many was in the stack when the gift was given will get bugged and become unsellable.

 

The only things I've found to do with them is give them all away or use them in flower arranging before harvesting more.

@EpicAshley101 Did you try the 'purge inventory' option that Crinrict recommended? I have also had success by opening the stack and going to the flowers that are 'stuck' and for each one in live mode telling the sim to 'place in world'. The sim should then lay the flower down in front of them on the ground. Then you can drag it to sell to delete it... but don't grab and hit the delete button or it will just go back in to inventory.
