This is also happening for me (PS5). In fact, assigning beds in general is buggy for me at the moment, specifically single beds and lower bunk beds. The sims are autonomously napping on the couch instead of sleeping in their assigned bed, every time. Doesn’t seem to be a problem for double beds or top bunk beds.

I'm having the same issue. All of my single beds and bottom bunk beds are unassigning themselves and I can't reassign them.

Same here. Seems like single bed ownership data got wiped with the last patch. 

Honestly, this game is on the struggle bus in a bad way when it comes to sims and their ownership of various items in general. The dots do not connect. At all. 

Instruments are affected by the "ownership" issue in my game, too. If a sim takes an instrument he/she owns out of his/her inventory and plays it, they won't return it to their inventory. They'll put it down on the ground instead, and you can't return it to their inventory ever again because they suddenly no longer own that item. The only solution is to keep replacing their belongings, over and over again.

I've had it happen with books, toys, coolers, jet skis, outrigger canoes, you name it. Basically anything a sim is supposed to own. . 


There's a major disconnect between sim IDs and object IDs as it relates to ownership that is, in many cases, completely game breaking. To say it's annoying and ridiculous would be an understatement. 

...but I digress. I will stop my rant here, because I could go on for literally DAYS. 


The only thing that fixed the bed ownership issue in my game was to completely replace the beds. Resetting the object did not work. It allowed the bed assignment menu to load, but the action never registered in the sim's queue and therefore could not be completed.. 

Go into build mode, use the eye dropper to clone the bed, get rid of the original bed, and replace it with a new, identical copy. 

Once you do that, go back into live mode and you SHOULD be able to successfully assign the bed again. 

I just tested this in my game and it worked for me. Hopefully it will fix the problem for all of you, too. 

Happy Simming and hang in there. Standard smile

I don't think it's Assigned to anybody, hence why it is blank, because if you do auto-solve for low energy they instead go to the nearest sofa and nap instead because they don't own any bed, also if you full automony they will never sleep in that bed you think where the icon is just invisible.


I can fix those as stated above, like buying new ones, etc. but what's the point? they only return back to the assigned to <Blank> on the next load.


I can say it happens with all my lots, bunks and single beds, and it's seem it's only the kid's beds that are affected.



I definitely have no bed mods, cc beds, or any mod that alters your sleeping arrangements.

@Citysim9997 I agree, it’s quite annoying. I’m surprised there aren’t more comments about this.

This happens occasionally to me too only for children/beds. Don't know why, but it's been like that way longer than just this patch unfortunately. I think more people don't mention it because there still assigned to the bed. It just doesn't show picture for me at least. I remember it doing that back as far as the werewolves patch. Did you try deleting the bed, and reassign or use diffrent bed?

Hmm, that's not happening to me. It's either the computer itself, or your Wi-Fi. I seem to only have those issues when I'm using a broken or slow or just a very old laptop, or if my wi-fi starts acting up.
