What happens when the bug occurs? My sim doesn't go to work. When work time comes, it suddenly reset itself moving on the work time of 24 hours. While this happen the little sim icon says the sim is at work, ever if it is at home. My sim follow the basic tasks but doesn't do some of them like open the fridge or turn on the stereo. Sometimes the actions queues gets completely stuck, and my sim stand still without moving, or sometimes even if the action is complete this still stays in the queue and disturb the other actions. This queue bugs occur also with my other sims. I tried to restart my game several times without succeed.

I recently installed that last game update, but the bugs showed up only after a few hours of gaming Frown

Have you tried moving your Sims out and back in as well as quitting the job and entering again ?

Yes! I tried to change the job and also quit it, but even when I don't have any job I still have the issue. In the sim icon the little "suitcase" icon disappear but the other one (with the two people) still remains and says that the sim "works normally".

Hi @Irielyssa

 

I tested your save and was not able to reproduce your issue. Tried the Hawkins Family in Willow Creek and gave her a job (I see the faulty icon but she goes to work just fine with a job).


What job did you give her ? Did you try a different one ?

 

Two other things I noticed:

 

- The stereo in your living room is inaccessible due to being placed with move objects. I would not place it objects Sims need to use with moo cause it can lead to routing issues

- Mail box is blocked by some plants that were placed with moo. Same as above.

Hi! Thanks so much for the help!
Uhm that's strange! I gave her the culinary career when the bug appeared for the first time, then I changed it to business but I still had the issue. I'm trying right now again with another career and I'll let you know!

 

I already changed the stereo position as I noticed the issue myself! I had not noticed the mail instead! Thank you <3
