Ditto, but I'm on PC. 

 

We were discussing off-the-grid cooking over in the General Feedback section, and.... yeah.  One person was surprised that you can cook over a campfire, while I was surprised that they couldn't! 

 

With the Simple Living lot challenge:

 

 

Without the Simple Living lot challenge:

 

 

(She doesn't have a fish or beetles in her inventory, so those options are grayed out.)

 

I'd expect the Simple Living lot challenge to prohibit marshmallows but allow my Sim to roast fish or beetles from her inventory. Judging by the feedback thread, Off-the-grd/Simple Living people would love to be able to cook over a campfire, but are locked out.  Frown

This bug is still an issue, I have it as it appears. The "Roast" option isn't there when Simple Living is applied, only the option to grill marshmellows.The bug appears regardless of Simple Living is combined with Off the Grid or not and on both of the campfires, but not on a grill.

 

This bug wasn't an issue before Cottage Living since I played with a history legacy challege a few month ago and essentially only fed my Sims with grilled fish they caught for themselves and didn't encounter any problems with roasting on the campfire.

 

I currently play on a freshly factory reset game with no mods installed and a completely fresh save (because I am investiating another Cottage Living related bug), when I encountered this one. I have all of the Expansion Packs and Game Packs besides Journey to Batu.

 

So in case there is a save needed to investigate, I have one.

I have returned to The Sims 4 after a year or so just for an idea to purchase and play Cottage Living off the grid and with simple living. I wanted to roast fish on rocks of fire, but I have discovered that there is no option to roast a fish on rocks of fire.

I assumed the Simple Life lot challenge would not conflict with Off the Grid when it comes to grilling fish.
