to stop them ageing load up the save (do not resume) and go into settings and turn ageing off this will stop them ageing on you until the patch

Thanks (lovely build!).

 

The reason it isn't working for you is because you haven't added a floor to where the sim has to get off the ladder. They can't slide from the ladder to the window. The ladder exit is shown in green here:

You will have to edit it slightly to make workable. I did this with the ladder:

then added some decorative trellis to try to blend it in a bit. You can add it above the ladder, the sim will successfully climb up and down the ladder:

This isn't a bug but is working as intended.

I followed your example for placing a surface for the sim to dismount the ladder and that work. What still doesn't work is the window itself. The (not so) EZ escape window only gives the option to lock for a specific sim or to lock. What gives with this window?? The trellis ladder works but the window still does not!

EZ window not working!

★ Novice

When I try to “sneak out” there’s no option for it. My sims will go out the window to stargaze or moonbathe but not to hangout with friends or go to parties. Those aren’t even options for me to choose. Secondly they also won’t go out the second floor window. I’ve rearranged it over a million times and they just won’t do it. Also I don’t see any options to sit in the window either….

@ceddy13240 I merged your report.

You need a ledge outside. See pics above on how to set it up.

There are no interactions on the window itself. You should get the sneak out option on the floor once you get invited. There's also no sit interaction. They kinda sit for a fraction of a sec when sneaking out.

If you still don't get any interactions on the ground after being invited out, please use this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/HSY-No-option-to-sneak-out-on-ground-ask-permission/m-p/116827...

@crinrict Hey Y’all so i figured it out finally lol. I was placing the window on the second floor and was hoping they could get out by stepping on the “roof” yea turns out you can’t. I actually deleted my roof from that One area and the sims immediately started using the EZ exit window. So if you want it on the second floor you gotta get creative with your “roof” design lol
