Events / Festivals / Holidays Disappear When Travel

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
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? 1.50.67.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All DLCs.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know what triggered it but I'll provide my saves.
What happens when the bug occurs? When my sims travel, the current festivals, holidays, and events (like talent showcase or starlight accolade) will disappear, but if the sims stay on the lot where festivals and events take place before they begin then these events / festivals / holidays just function as normal.
What do you expect to see? When my sims travel to the destination the events / holidays / festivals should remain and function.
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

This screenshot is took when my sim traveled to flea market from phone invitation, I still got to keep the mini goal, while the flea market itself just disappeared. 

 

Now for me CL festivals are completely broken unless living in the district where the certain festival take place (neither travel through the festival info notification, directly through the map, nor being invited by phone would work). Seasons holiday traditions that require travel like the date tradition for love day could not be completed but is still tolerable, while the GF events bother me the least as I know for sure when and where they will happen.

 

Removed the mods then deleted the localthumbcache and repaired yet the issue is still there.

Could you test a fresh saves for testing ?

 

Sounds like your save game corrupted. Do you have a save from before it started happening and can test if it occurs again if you don't have any mods in ?

Hi Crin,

 

That’s the save that I played since I got the game two years ago. I only got another save to upload pre-mades and put them to my old save but I can’t remember if the other save is created before the issue though I can definitely test on it.

 

I will test it on a new save tomorrow and will update the result. Thank you for your suggestion.

 

MfG,

Alex

Just start a fresh save to see if the issues also occurs there or if it's related to your save.

 

The game makes automatic backups so maybe you can try one of them but if you saved more then 4 times since the issue occurred, they are probably also bugged.

 

Here's instructions how to recover older saves: https://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2014/09/save-games/

Hi Crin,

 

tried a new save and it worked...... Just want to know if I save the households and buildings in my corrupted save to my library and put them into my new save, would my new save become corrupted too? Thanks.

Depends what corrupted it. I haven't seen any other reports of this kind and it could have been a mod too.

I would make backups of everything and just try.

Can you send me your corrupted save ?

Just upload to google drive or onedrive and PM me the link.
