[OPEN] [SD] Sim never finishes yoga routines, stops to practice programming

[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.69.59.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Snowy Escape, Tiny Living, Discover University, Realm of Magic, Island Living, Strangerville, Get Famous, Seasons, My First Pet Stuff, Jungle Adventure, Cats & Dogs, Bowling Night Stuff, Vampires, Vintage Glamour Stuff, City Living, Backyard Stuff, Dine Out, Movie Hangout Stuff, Get Together, Spooky Stuff, Cool Kitchen Stuff, Spa Day, Perfect Patio Stuff, Get To Work, Outdoor Retreat
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Tell Sim to do Yoga. Wait a pose or two until the Sim autonomously interrupts it to go do Programming.
What happens when the bug occurs? The Sim barely starts Yoga, does maybe a pose or two, then the action is canceled and Practice Programming is queued instead.
What do you expect to see? expect my Sim to finish the Yoga routine.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Bought Snowy Escape

I've read that Eco Living caused Sims to become obsessed with various things, such as cooking and programming, and that this was fixed, but I want to note that I do not have that pack and have never had that pack.

 

I noticed this and other interruptions after I bought Snowy Escape. I don't know why it is these specific actions, but my Sim repeatedly leaves Yoga to do Programming -- even though she's not in the Programming career, has never been told to do Programming by me, should have no specific interest in it or anything (no skill level). She does have a decently high Wellness skill and took a Wellness class in college. So I would expect she'd be more likely to finish the Yoga I queued than to go off and do programming of her own accord...


I have a few mods and a lot of CC, but I've removed them already to test a different issue with food vendors.

(Editing to focus on one specific interruption as suggested.)

@ArendelleMage Could you please create a thread for each instance ?

There's already a few threads on stuff interrupting others but as you describe pretty specific ones, it's best to have a thread each. You can edit this one to be just about yoga/programming for example and make another for cooking and what is interuppting that. If any of the linked ones match, just use those

This is a problem for my Sims as well. Sims simply will not complete their yoga routines, no matter which routine I select. The game knows it is interrupted because they do not get the buff when they stop. Typically they interrupt their routine with a computer activity (programming, chat, game), but Sims who are locked from the computer will also interrupt a routine to do other things. Sims put their shoes back on and stay in their fitness outfit. To find this bug, you should be able to ask a Sim to complete a yoga routine, then wait for them to get through a few poses. They will decide to do something else.

 

This is a somewhat recent bug. I bought the Snowy Escape pack 12/22/2020. I wanted my yoga-loving single mother Sim to enjoy morning yoga routines during her mountain vacation while her daughter slept in but she kept interrupting the activity. I thought it was vacation excitement but, since then, any Sim won't finish yoga. I do not remember whether this was an issue between the 12/14/2020 update and my purchase of Snowy Escape.

 

The bug was It was not fixed in the 1/21/2021 patch. I do not have mods.

I’m having this issue as well and it’s really annoying, I have to remove all my computers on my lot just to do some yoga and we all know about that lag that happens when you open build mode. It’s all honestly so tedious and annoying that I don’t even want to bother with it anymore.

 

I know this bug is not wide spread so it’s not likely to be put on the laundry list so if you have this bug PLEASE press that Me Too button on the first post!

Your fix works thanks but it is really annoying removing all the computers. Also they seem to want to make drinks as well! So now I'm removing the bars whilst my sim practises yoga!
