Hello,

 

         I have an issue where my sims and all others on the active lot, fail to react or listen to commands. The queue wont freeze, I can add to it and remove things from it but they do not follow the commands or do anything at all. This seems to happen when there are more than one sim on the lot at a time and mainly when there is a need in the red.

I'm kinda having the same problem. While my sims do stand around a lot. My sims queue completely fills up with "Pet (animals name)". Without me going anything, they'll do it on there own. There will but over ten of them and they'll quickly disappears and comes back over and over again within seconds.

Hi @psamteck

 

your specs look fine. Graphics drivers could do with an update but I doubt that's the issue.

 

as we're having a patch tomorrow which is an EP patch and from experience rather big, I'm going to hold off with further troubleshooting with you until after the patch.

 

Please retest after tomorrows patch and we'll go from there.

 

@PlumbobEmotion

 

yours is very specific. There's all kinds of freezes and lags so for now, it's probably best to either merge all with autonomy lag thread or leave separate which I'm going to hold off doing till after EP patch.

That's what I'm hoping for is the next patch fixing it. Also hoping they don't delay it again.
