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? 220.127.116.110
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All besides the following three stuff packs: cool kitchen, fitness and laundry day.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim work as an actor and have them sign up for an audition. Switch household. After getting to the day of the audition you'll get a notification that the sim (whose household you're not currently playing)
What happens when the bug occurs? If I don't switch households, the actor misses his/her audition, despite the fact that the actor's household should be paused gameplay wise.
What do you expect to see? I expect the households I'm not playing to be paused.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure
I'm a long time sims player, and I know well enough to turn of auto age and any other functions I don't want, but I have never before experienced that unplayed sims continue their careers or that playing a household will affect the career of a sim in another household. Usually time is "paused" for the other households, meaning they don't miss work or get negative grades/reviews when not being played. Their lives are in that sense paused.
This problem appeared after installing Get Famous. I recently also installed a few single file mods, however as they're just cosmetic they should not affect the game play. (Mods: Eye lence, Eye lashes, Make up)
Logically thinking the issue could either have been caused by Get famous (because of the new interactive careers), Seasons (because of the calendar) or possibly the result of an update.
Could you look into it? I'd really like to be able to switch between playing households without having to worry about my other households failing their careers.
Thanks in advance.
