Energy Need Not Decaying

★ Novice

I am having a problem with my family, it seems that their energy will decay a small amount but then go back up to a full bar. All of their other needs will decay at a normal rate. I have tried removing my mods and CC. This is really annoying as my sims aren't sleeping more than 5 sim minutes.

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

The problem was a custom trait, when I downloaded it, it didn't list the affects it had on the sims. Thanks for your help!

Can't believe the same bug still appears to me after a year and I couldn't even file a bug report.

For OP it was actually a mod causing the issue.

Did you try the suggestion above ?
