@amiejadie Could you give some more details what happens ? Does it just drop from queue ? Have you tested other households to make sure it's not something blocking the toilet ?

so the action doesn’t drop from the queue, rather they can’t complete the action as if there’s something in the way. but it’s not just in their house, it’s every building in all worlds (i’ve not edited any of the premise ea builds). and it’s only happening in this one save file.

@amiejadie Could you please post a video ?

Best to upload to unlisted youtube and link here. Videos uploaded here are usually too small to really see something.

I started having this issue as well a few days ago. I tried removing CC toilets but even EA toilets do this.

When I click on the toilet, the Upgrade option is still available, as well as cleaning options if it's dirty, flush if it's full, and/or throw up if a Sim is feeling sick. The "Use" option is gone completely. So far, I've only played on one save file since this bug popped up, so I'm unsure if it affects all my saves. 

Thankfully, I have Get Together installed and the bushes still work as toilets so I had to put several on my lot! 

 

I am also on PC. My other packs are Dine Out, Tiny Living, Laundry Day, and Seasons. 

I mostly use CAS & Build CC but have MCCC, Wonderful Whims, Personality Please, KS Education System for script mods. I recently tried using one that would allow Sims who are friends/family with those they are visiting to cook/etc without getting yelled at for being inappropriate, but it was kind of old and that might have broken things. I did remove it, but the toilets remain broken. Everything else seems to be functioning ok. 

 

I can provide more information when I am off work and can log in to the game.
