Getting calls from household members when off lot with another household member. It's a little awkward. 

 

Mom, I'm not sure this is a question you should be asking your teenage child.

Mom, you just died like an hour ago? What do you want from me?

Mom, I'm just at the spice festival with Dad. I haven't left and I'm just a child!

You are welcome I guess? I live here you know.

Grandpa, I'm not sure you should take career advice from a toddler. (Not same household anymore but was)

Messages Implying My Sim Moved Out When They Still Live In the Same Household

★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
What is your current game version number? SP21: 1.assets.live-sp21.101
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All packs except My Wedding Stories and Growing Together
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Not sure, it's only happened once
What happens when the bug occurs? My Sim (who is currently still a Teen) was hanging out with the Wildfangs in Moonwood Mill, and suddenly received a pop-up message from her mother (not a text or call, just a pop-up like the event messages from exploring the tunnels) asking when she was going to visit home, and sort of implying that the Teen had moved out and not been in touch in a while. My Teen still lives in the same household as her mother, and was only gone for about 18 hours as I was attempting to have her quickly join the Wildfangs pack in only a couple of days.
What do you expect to see? not see this message until my sim actually moves out, i guess?
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 assume this has something to do with the new base game update that came with Growing Together's release, as I have never seen this message before in all my years of playing this game, and it occurred only a few days after I installed that update.

Not sure if this is relevant, but this is a relatively new save, I only just started this save two days ago, and this occurred less than one week into the game (in-game-time)

 

i apologise for the poor quality of the image. I play on a console and as such have to take photos of my screen with a low-quality phone camera. I just hope you can read the text in the image.20230604_011752.jpg

Never had this problem before, but it surfaced now. I have teenagers who get calls from their mom when they leave the home lot (has happened now twice when going to the ball for example). The last time mom called to ask if they should try for a baby, now she calls to tell him that he should sometimes visit?! He left home like less than half an hour ago, codependent much?

 

All Expansion packs, all Game packs and Stuff packs except Journey to Batuu. All Kits except Desert Luxe, Decor to the Max, Courtyard Oasis, Incheon Arrivals, Bust the Dust, Fashion Street, Modern Menswear, Urban Homage, and Party Essentials.

 

No mods or cc

 

Game language Finnish

 

version number

1.106.148.1030

 

PC / Win 10

I have completely reinstalled the game in May 2021. No mods installed after reinstall.

The teenagers have the ball in the evening.

In version 1.104.x mother living in the same home as her child asked the child to visit her sometimes. I see the issue is still here.
