[XB1/PS4] [DO] [CD] Editing restaurant/vet outfits breaks it UI/Controls

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
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? 1.26
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Discover University, Island Living, Get Famous, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work, StrangerVille, Jungle Adventure, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat, Moschino Stuff, Laundry Day Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Cool Kitchen Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Luxury Party Stuff, Holiday Celebration, Grims Guitar
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go into build mode, set lot type to restaurant, try to set employees outfit, be sent to CAS. After returning to build mode try to cycle back to the restuarant specific tab
What happens when the bug occurs? The new Sims4 update has changed the layout for lot types, traits, and lot specifics in the build buy mode. They now each have their own tab. At first I really enjoyed the new layout but after trying to build a restaurant and trying to set my staff's outfits it would auto send me to CAS even if I was choosing a pre-set outfit and then after loading back into build mode, would no longer allow me to cycle through the lot type/traits.
What do you expect to see? I should not be taken to CAS for pre-set outfits, and setting outfits / loading in and out of CAS should not hinder my ability to change lot type tabs.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Happened after installing latest update 1.26. Though I also just bought Island Living.

[XB1] [DO] Control don't work properly when trying to edit Uniform

Product: The Sims 4

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? 1.26
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? go into build mode and change the lot to ‘restaurant’ to enable restaurant options, go to employee uniform section and edit outfit through CAS, then try pressing down on the left joystick (to enable list of controls) and it should be showing a blank controller. When exiting CAS, the LB and RB will no longer work.
What happens when the bug occurs? LB and RB are no longer functional, all controls are erased from control window
What do you expect to see? I expect to see the buttons working as intended, they don’t work in any aspect of the game after entering CAS through build mode.

Please describe the patch or change you made. This began after the latest update

Original post: “Okay so for some reason they updated the window for the lot settings, you now have to press LB or RB to navigate through them.The only problem with that is, as soon as you go in to customize uniforms (retail, vet, restaurant etc.) when you come back to build mode, the buttons no longer work, so you’re forced to restart the entire game just to get the buttons to work again as they now don’t work in build mode or even in game. Is anybody else having this problem so far? It’s been happening since yesterday but i figured it might be fixed with the addition of the eco living pack but no, it’s actually really annoying if you like to customize worker attire like i do. Also, not only do the buttons stop working, if you click the joystick down to view the controls they completely disappear! It just shows my controller but with no button functions like what the hell??”

Re: [XB1] [DO] Control don't work properly when trying to edit Uniform

I am able to duplicate this issue on PS4.

 

I used a residential lot, placed a restaurant from the library, changed the lot type to restaurant, edit the chef outfit.

I used a residential lot, downloaded a restaurant from the gallery, changed the lot type to restaurant, edit the chef outfit.

I used a residential lot, changed the lot type to restaurant, edit the chef outfit. 

 

Once in the CAS, the menu controls are blank.

 

Upon saving and exiting the CAS, the left and right button/bumper buttons no longer function in build mode. They work in Live mode, but if you go back into build mode they still don't function.

 

Empty Control Menu.

I have an up to date game, and all packs.

This is an issue for me as well on Xbox One S. I am always forced to close the game and reopen the game as the blank controller screen is glued to my screen when this problem occurs.

I have now also found that if you open the mailbox and vote for community action, the buttons disappear from the menu again except now it’s ONLY the bumpers working, i can press start to save and then the joystick works in the start menu but not in game similar to the restaurant bug but with different buttons not working
