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? 22.214.171.1240
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim record a vlog that requires a certain emotion and have that emotion run out during recording.
What happens when the bug occurs? My sim records a vlog requiring an emotion (eg. Cheerful Vlog which requires the Happy moodlet). If the required moodlet runs out before the recording process is finished, the sim completes the actions for recording a video but the process does not finalise and my sim is left with no video.
What do you expect to see? I expect the sim to finish recording the video, then to write the name and description for the video, and for this video to be available for editing on the More View Video Station. I expect this to work like emotional paintings work, where a sim only needs to start a painting in the required mood but can finish it in any mood. As it is, my sims waste time behaving as if they are recording a video only to end up with no product at the end of their effort.
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
As described above, I will get a sim to start recording a vlog requiring a particular emotion and if the moodlet runs out partway through the process, the sim will still spend the 2 in-game hours pantomiming recording a video but the process will not complete and the sim ends up just wasting that time for zero reward. It would make sense for videos to work like paintings, where paintings only need to be started in a particular emotion and can be completed in any emotion, including neutral, while keeping the original emotion associated with the painting. As it is, recording emotional vlogs is a total waste of time if the moodlet has less than 3 hours left on the timer.
