[NEEDS SAVES] [CL] Extreme Weight Gain for NPCs
[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Normal game play in San Myshuno; exacerbated playing a household living in SM
What happens when the bug occurs? Adults appearing in San Myshuno (almost) always reach 100% weight
What do you expect to see? More consistently varied weights across San Myshuno sims
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? No

 I don't know that I'd classify this as a "bug" per say, but it's definitely disruptive from an immersion perspective. Over time, virtually all adults in San Myshuno hit 100% weight. Vampires seem exempt, as they don't typically eat, but humans and aliens that appear in San Myshuno are subject to extreme weight gains. Walking around town or looking out from apartments, it's unusual to see thin NPCs, and they're typically either recent adults or vampires. (I've noticed a few exceptions, but very few, and it typically seems tied to the active trait.)


Weight gain happened across multiple saves, though it's greatly accelerated using a household living in San Myshuno. I know an older patch addressed sims' excessive attraction to food stalls, but this continues to plague San Myshuno for me.
