Re: Maid / Grill Glitch

@nickinbigd Can you please edit the version number of your game. You can do this in game by pressing all 4 shoulder buttons at once to open the cheat bar, then type in the word Version. Scroll to the top of the list to the word BASE. The numbers after BASE is your game version.

My apologies. That is what I thought I did but I did not realize the list appearing in the screen was appearing from the bottom up, requiring me to toggle to the top.  The BASE is 1.39.7.2300 (64bit). I have corrected that info in the Report. By the way since my original post, I tried with a variety of grills on different lots, and it’s happening everywhere with all of them.

@nickinbigd Could you maybe add a video ? Does she go straight to the grill to do that ?

I’m sorry, I’m not technically adept enough to add the video. But as best I can describe, if there are dirty dishes in the kitchen which sit between the front door and the backyard grill, the maid will clean those first. Then move to the grill. But then the maid gets stuck and won’t ever go upstairs to mop for example or scrub toilets.  This is a new issue, just within the last week I think. I am playing the same households and lots for awhile now and did not have this glitch before.

Found following snippet in grill_Clean section test_autonomous:

 

<L>
<V t="sim_info">
<U n="sim_info">
<V n="ages" t="specified" />
<V n="npc" t="enabled">
<T n="enabled">True</T>
</V>
</U>
</V>
</L>

 

unlike every other test, this one doesn't appear in stove_Clean (which seems to be unaffected)

That doesn’t mean anything to me but I’m just a unsophisticated user; hopefully that’s a lead for someone who can explore a fix? I’m glad it looks like an identifiable anomaly.

@nickinbigd Would you mind testing if it happens on another household/save as well or is limited to that specific household

It is most definitely happening in multiple households, although I have temporarily removed the grills to prevent the glitch.  I will go back to an older save and see if it happens there too, and will post the results. Thanks for the suggestion

So I did also try an old save from January at your suggestion, let the lot get filthy over the weekend, and when the maid came on Monday he cleaned all of the inside stuff downstairs first, then went outside and got stuck at the grill opening-cleaning-closing-repeat for at least 1 1/2 sim hours, until I gave up and fired him.
