[OPEN] [PH] Sim doesn't disobey grounding, and still gets autonomously scolded

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? Suomi
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.73.57.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them except Throwaway kit
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Get child or teen grounded. Pick any option you want to deny from them
What happens when the bug occurs? After like a minute, child/teen gets moodlet "disobeying grounding" even though they are doing completely different things, and then all adults starts scolding constantly. The moodlet doesn't go away, until grounding is over.
What do you expect to see? After grounding child/teen they should not get the "disobeying grounding" moodlet and adults should not scold kids without any reason. It should be my choice only if they disobey anything.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I have mods, which should get rid of moodlets I don't like, but it always comes back. I removed and tried without mods and still the same in vanilla game. Weird things started happening after installing bust the dust kit and that update back then but not sure if it's from that... 🤔

@SamanthaSunny by completely different things you mean things that don't get them grounded ?

Does the grounded moodlet show up again ? There's this old bug and I wonder if that shifted somehow: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TROUBLESHOOT-PH-Grounded-moodlet-not-showing-up-anymore/td-p/7...

Yes, they don't have to even do anything, moodlet comes right after grounding, instantly. Moodlet comes back by itself. It comes again and again, and stays as long as grounding moodlet is there. Example: 1. I get kid grounded (no phone allowed) 2. After grounding and waiting 5 seconds "disobeying grounding" Moodlet comes to the kid, even though kid went only to the bathroom, and didn't even touch the phone. Everytime this happens

@SamanthaSunny I tested this in my game and found that the "breaking grounding" came up with the "no phone" grounding but not others; "no TV" and "no computer" did not have the same effect.  The "breaking grounding" from the "no phone" grounding came up for both teen and child sims.  What a weird bug!  Hopefully someone can fix this.

 

Edit: I forgot to mention I noticed the "breaking grounding" moodlet kept coming up as long as the "grounded" moodlet was in play.  I also had an issue where my grounded teen and child sims got caught in a weird loop of trying to interact with their mom and siblings, then cancelling that interaction; over and over.  I wondered if it was a side effect of being "caught" breaking the grounding?

 

Second edit: I just noticed the interaction that comes up but gets cancelled was "be reprimanded".  I'm thinking that is definitely related to the erroneous "breaking grounding" moodlet.

Yes, you have all the same in your game, except mine is in all options. The "Be reprimanded" is the Moodlet that comes to the adults after if they are in the same room. Annoying bug 😤

I'm getting this bug too. Two children decided to both splatter paint on the floor at the same time. As the family was camping with no TV or computer, I used the no phone option to ground the children. Had to cheat the grounding away as the children could not so much as stand still and breath without getting reprimanded. I use the grounding option often, usually with no computer or music and have no issues.

I have this bug too. Have had it since at least one of the March updates. Children / Teens are grounded. The "breaking grounding" moodlet perpetually shows and any adult member of the household hounds the child / teen to reprimand them.

I too am now having this problem after never having it before. I've had parenthood for a while now too and never had the bug. I have the newest update, no mods or CC, it's possible this is occurring because of the newest patch but I also am not 100% sure.
