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? Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Holiday Celebration Pack, Grim's Ghoulish Guitar
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Form a group in live mode, click on a stereo, and choose the Listen To Together interaction.
What happens when the bug occurs? All sims on the lot immediately reset and stop what they were doing and an exception is triggered.
What do you expect to see? The members of the group gathering around the stereo to listen to the music.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The issue started right after the latest PC patch to prepare for the Tiny Living release.
I originally thought that a mod I had installed was causing the issue, but I cleared out my Mods folder, repaired the game in Origin, loaded the game without any custom content, started a new game with two sims, and after purchasing a stereo the same problem occurred. I tried three times and all three times the interaction failed.
This problem makes completing social events (dinner parties, house parties, etc.) very difficult to complete successfully when listening to a radio together is one of the goals. I've also noticed that since the Tiny Living patch whenever my sim has a whim to listen to a specific station on the radio the whim never completes. My sim can stand there listening indefinitely and the whim remains active and no reward is given. Before the patch I know for sure that it was working fine.
This could be related to the exception that triggers upon arriving at a festival, which I've seen threads about, but I haven't seen anyone mention the behavior I'm experiencing.
For some reason I'm unable to attach the lastException file. Exception text is included below.
