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? 184.108.40.2060
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Watch the NPC Hermit from Granite Falls near a grill, or enable the Self-Sufficiency NAP and invite over some NPCs with only grills and stoves available to use on the lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? The NPC will autonomously start to brew a de-stressing decoction on the grill, but when reaching the middle part of the recipe they will transition over to a stove to finish the potion.
What do you expect to see? The entire interaction only taking place on the grill and not transitioning to a stove.
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
The recipe for autonomous herbalism potion brewing (recipe_HerbalismPotion_StressSoother_Grill_Autonomous, tuning ID 111000) which is used by both the Granite Falls hermit in the interaction (herbalism_BrewPotion_Autonomous) and by any NPC under the influence of the Self-Sufficiency NAP version of the interaction (herbalism_BrewPotion_Autonomous_CivicPolicy) incorrectly has an ICO Transition to a stove on step 5 of the recipe.
This is a recipe for a grill, not for a stove. If you examine the player's version of the De-Stressing Decoction recipe (the non-autonomous version – recipe_HerbalismPotion_StressSoother_Grill, tuning ID 103858) the recipe is identical, except that it correctly has an ICO Transition to a grill on step 5.
The incorrect ICO Transition to a stove for the autonomous version of the recipe makes NPCs start a potion on the grill, then they pick up the pot and walk into a kitchen with a stove to continue the rest of the recipe. This shouldn't happen, as seen in the non-autonomous player controlled version of the recipe it should all take place on the grill.
