having the same problem but heightened in that many actions I can't do if I tell the Sim to do it. Like to read, sometimes homework. Oddly they can do them fine autonomously.

I'm having the same issue. They can't eat leftovers or grab servings of food without t-posing & never eat anything.

Sims wont eat

★ Novice

My sim can cook a meal, but when I select grab a serving they drop the plate and no matter how much I try to make them eat they won’t. I didn’t have this issue after I updated my game for the august 2 patch. I only started having problems after I downloaded Sims 4 Highschool Years, which I bought August 5. Note: (Every update I update my mods & ordinary cc is usually fine).

my sims cant eat or drink

★ Novice

After I have installed high school years my sims won't eat or drink. They can cook food on the stove or microwave, but they can not eat or take quick meals from the fridge. They glitch out and reset but they have really low hunger and they keep dying. I took out all my mods and cc and repaired my game it still is doing the same thing.

Re: my sims cant eat or drink

@monnaa2_baby This is usually caused by cc beds. Are you sure you removed them all ?

Happy Gaming
