[OPEN] [PS/XB] [CoL] Cursor disappears after interacting with Chicken Coop

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 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? 1.44
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Selecting an option after interacting with the chicken coop
What happens when the bug occurs? Cursor disappears and you can no longer move the camera or interact with anything. It makes the game almost unplayable. The cursor comes back after you go to manage worlds or main menu but continually having to do this is quite annoying
What do you expect to see? For the cursor to not to disappear and to still be able to interact with other objects after attempting to interact with the chicken coop
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I just updated my system to 8.52 and downloaded the new cottage living pack

I just downloaded the new pack after preordering it today. Every time (so far without fail) I interact with the chicken coop, my cursor disappears and I can’t interact with anything else. I can’t move the camera and if my camera wasn’t locked onto my sim before I selected the coop, then I can’t lock my camera onto them either. I can toggle between the menu and game but my cursor never reappears unless I exit to either the main menu or manage worlds. I am also able to access the options menu. Interacting with the chickens themselves is fine and so far has not caused anything wonky, only clicking on the coop itself. The bug doesn’t seem to appear solely by clicking on the coop though. In order for it to happen I need to select one of the options that appear when I click on the coop. Once I make an interaction then my cursor disappears. The interaction at least seems to already be carried out. The lot I’m playing in is 5 cobblebottom street if that helps at all.

Wont let me highlight or click on objects to use them (eg. fridge

★★★ Newbie

ive been playing on my new save i made with cottage living and a couple of hours in, it wouldn't let my sim use the fridge. i couldn't highlight it nor was i able to use any of the actions such as "have dinner". every button such as build mode, manage worlds, etc works besides any useable objects. i cant sekect or highlight my sim either. i restarted my xbox, closed out of sims 4, and im not sure what else to do since im playing on console rather than pc.

I'm having the same issue! Thought it was the controller, changed them out and it didn't work.

I'm encountering the same bug. I've found if I save the game and exit back to the world selector, I can then reenter the world/household I was playing and all is returned to normal (until I interact with the coop again).
