[FIXED] Child sims stuck waking up in "terror"
[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Cats and Dogs.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Unknown. It happens every time a child wakes up in my game, but I'm not sure how to replicate it.
What happens when the bug occurs? Every time a child sim wakes up, the "terror" animation plays, as though they were startled by the monster under the bed. This happens in all bed types, children's, single, or double and regardless of how they are woken up.
What do you expect to see? The normal "wake up" animation for child sims should play when they aren't actually awoken by the monster under the bed.
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. It started happening sometime after the monster under the bed patch was released, but I don't know exactly when.

The children themselves have no status markers saying they were startled by the monster, nor do any amount of defender lights help. It reminds me a lot of the fruitcake animation bug.


I have tried a completely fresh install of the game twice now to try and fix it, even installing the game to a different hard-drive. The only thing I haven't tried yet is installing it on a different system entirely. It happens in all my saves, new and old, across all worlds with no mods installed whatsoever.
