[OPEN] [V] NPC Vampires are staying out in the sun
[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all DLCs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? As we can no longer invite vampires over during the day any other way, having them be part of a club appears to be the only way to trigger this now, but the core problem is still very much there. They simply don't prioritize survival high enough.
What happens when the bug occurs? When I have vampires come over as part of club events, during the day the vampire will run outside and stand in the sun, and even when they start to burn they will not seek shelter or make any attempt to get out of the sun. Instead they'll stay in direct sunlight until they die. They do this after sunset too, but obviously that's not a problem. Like I have a club where the one activity is to use the hot tub, and the vampires will jump in along with the other club members, even though the hot tub is outside.
What do you expect to see? Difficult to say for sure since it's an NPC. The vamp sim basically arrived and after a few seconds burnt to death on the front porch. She may be delayed from running inside by other NPC sims, but generally I do what I can to avoid interacting with known vampires during the day until they get to safety.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

EDIT (by request of @EA_Lanna ):

 

  • Have you attached your game save in this reply? Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5esdu5q38bjt7nr/Slot_0000004f.save?dl=0
    • Notes on this save: This is the latest save I can find where the vampire is still alive. Jade Purple (is a normal human) should be the last played family in this. She's a member of the One Percent club and so is Chloe Keeley, the vampire. If you invite the club over, Chloe will usually show up even if it's the middle of the day. But Chloe is thin-skinned so she only has a few seconds to get to safety, but she rarely starts to run for shade before it's too late. Chloe was created on day 1 of the Vampire DLC, just like the friends she live with, but she otherwise seem to be one of the only ones of the sims in this save that don't act buggy.
  • Additional notes: I missed the request a while ago to split up my thread with the vampire issues, but I shall try.

     

    I definitely still had this problem in 1.58, and since neither of the following patches have addressed it, I would assume it's still a problem.

    Since club members spawn in front of the lot where they gather, they should really run inside immediately, but they often don't. Especially thin skinned vampires will die to this before they start to move.

(CM: Post split from older thread into own thread to log reports of issue ongoing after the fix from Patch 1.51.75)
