Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 220.127.116.110
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Spooky
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try to build with only a single pack or only base game. Save your build periodically. Eventually, if you build long enough, it'll tell you that items from another pack are included that you didn't intend to include. From your library save, check the "Show Used Items" on the packs it lists. Eventually you'll find that it shows you a pack in use, but does not list any items used in the pack. I've heard this happens to other people as well, so I know it's not specific to my game and it's been happening since I owned the game. I don't build with pack restrictions often, but when I do, I'd say it happens at least 50% of those times, maybe more.
What happens when the bug occurs? The library or gallery save of your build will show that packs are included that aren't included. It will fail to list any included items (I believe because there aren't any to list).
What do you expect to see? If I build base game only and there are no items from packs included, I expect my library and gallery saves not to show other packs included. If items from other packs are, in fact, included, I expect it to tell me which items are included so that I can eliminate them if I choose.
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
Below I show a base game only build. I don't believe I've included any items from other packs. However, when I save the build, it shows Get Together and Vampires as included packs. When I click to see which items from these packs are included, none are listed.
