Since June patch my sims just won't listen to me. Not every time, but they cancel whatever I command them to do. I have to tell them several times to do something
@epaor Sorry for your frustration. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this so you can get on with normal gameplay! I would recommend beginning our troubleshooting with a game repair along with removing the cache (as follows) and see if this helps. The large, recent patch/update brought in many changes. These types of changes effect many aspects of the game.
Do you have Mods or CC? If you do please remove them in this process and try the troubleshooting as described below. (If you don't have Mods or CC, just skip the part about removing the Mods folder, but still delete the cache file mentioned.) If you ever had Mods or CC in the past then do the steps as if you have them currently (removing the Mods folder), as there could be damage that has remained after you removed them.
If It fixes the situation I would recommend that you check with the Mod and CC creators to see if there are any known issues with their Mod/CC clashing with the recent update and if so do they have an updated Mod/CC that will address the changes in the game's code from the update. You can then re-add your updated Mods/CC one at a time to see if one was conflicting with the function/causing the glitch - but do not re-add the old config file from the old mods folder, as it is possible for it to have become corrupted also.
Let us know how it goes. Thanks!
