Sims freeze but time carries on
★★ Novice

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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Eco Lifestyle // Get Famous // Seasons // Cats & Dogs // City Living // Get to Work // Realm of Magic // Parenthood // Vampires // Tiny Living // Fitness // Bowling Night
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Load up the game and try to give the sim a task.
What happens when the bug occurs? When the game loads, if you give a sim a task to do, they will freeze and not do the task, but the time will continue to pass. If sims are asleep, they will not wake, even if the sleep is interrupted manually. Eventually, the Mac instructs you to force quit the game because there is no more memory for it.
What do you expect to see? Gameplay without freezing and sims completing tasks when requested.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure
