[FIXED] [IL] Analyzing ocean samples make inventory vanish
[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything but My First Pet Stuff and Toddler Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Both times I know it happened it was on a Sim in the conservationist career, they had multiple items in their personal inventory and were recently analyzing a stack of ocean samples. This has happened twice. Another non conservationist sim has lost a Float Lounger though I am not 100% sure it is from this bug or if I had their conservationist sibling pick it up who would have lost it when the bug occurred for them. I had also sold some photos from the characters inventory recently as well, not sure if that might be relevant. I didn't sell the earbuds, canoe, lounger or beach towels That went missing from the conservationists though.
What happens when the bug occurs? Everything in their personal inventory vanishes with the exception of the research data you get from analyzing the samples.
What do you expect to see? Analysis should yield research data or fail to without the loss of the sims personal inventory.
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

So this bug has definitely occurred twice on conservationist sims. That is, once on two different sims. It is possible it happened on a third non conservationist sim which, if so it may not be related to the sample analysis, however I am not sure if I just misplaced that sims float lounger. It doesn't happen every time.
