Sims 4 wrong chef shows up

★★★ 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? 1.59.73.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all except fitness, garden,kitchen, spooky time stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? not sure
What happens when the bug occurs? Whenever I hire a chef, only one chef shows up and it is never the chef i hired. I don't have any broken CC, i've repaired my game. Im not sure if its because they live in sulani or if its just a constant bug with dine out. It has been this way since island living came out, and never got fixed.
What do you expect to see? the chef i hired at my restaurant and not a random sim.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

Pleasee fix it. I hired two girls and have a male sim chef

@Summerxena Sounds like the old fixed bug. Did you test this on a vanilla game ? Did you try repairing your game through Origin yet ?

Do you have two cooking stations in your restaurant ?

@Summerxena Do you have this issue only in Sulani ?

Can you test a fresh save to see if it happens there as well ?

Hi @Summerxena 

 

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.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

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 and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • 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.
