Trying to age up a Teen sim. (It's not his birthday, but it's time for him to get lost.) I make a cake. I put birthday candles on it. He blows them out and then teleports away like it didn't even happen. The cake moodlet pops up, and other sims celebrate. However, he doesn't age up. He just goes about his business like it didn't even happen.


I did the same thing yesterday with different Sims, so I'm assuming the update I installed today is what broke it. I haven't changed anything else. Removed CC, cache, moved sims out and back in, debugged everything involved in the interaction. No dice.
