Product: The Sims 4
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? 184.108.40.2060
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Travel to the Humor and Hijinks Festival and either watch NPCs attempt to light fireworks or buy fireworks and attempt to light some for yourself.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim attempting to light the fireworks will T-pose for a split second and reset. The firework remains unlit.
What do you expect to see? The sims should be able to light the fuse of the firework successfully.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Since patch 220.127.116.110 I believe.
Fortunately this doesn't seem to prevent completion of the "Light fireworks at the Humor and Hijinks Festival" phone call event NPCs can give you when the festival is in town. You're given credit for lighting a firework even though you T-pose.
The exception errors mention the Finchwick Fair and look something like this:
EDIT: I've also tested this with fireworks my sim purchased on the computer and tried lighting at home in their yard. Same failure to complete the action
Edit By Crinrict: Added Tag to Title, Adjusted Title
