[BUG] Sims Age In CAS
« on: November 16, 2018, 11:52:50 AM »
So even with aging off your sim will slowly age in CAS. The longer you stay in CAS the more they age up. This is also true for vampires. This bug effects the entire household so you really need to save before using CAS every time until there is a fix for this.

Some people have reported that child sims become a few days younger so watch out for that aspect of the bug too.

SimGuruNick is aware of the bug - no time frame for a fix as of yet.

Ugh. 3 steps forward, 2 steps back. Thanks for the heads up, Play. I will make Tournament/Dynasty players aware of this.

Does that bug include characters that I've made in the past @Playalot?

(as long as I don't change anything about them in CAS/go into CAS with them) 

I've had my main family since I started to play TS4.  I have aging off, but I want to make sure that nothing happens to their ages.

@coolsim9999999  yes any sims in any game will be effected if you go into CAS.

SimGuruNick has just confirmed they are working hard for a fix to be released as fast as possible for this bug.

Thanks a lot, Play 8)!  I will make sure to stay out of CAS with any characters that I care about not aging at all.

I'm about to get Get Famous, so those characters will be new and they bug will be fixed before they're too old.  I guess I could use potions of youth on new characters if it's not fixed as soon as expected.

Oh, så that's why my Sims have a green aging bar all of a sudden. Thanks, Playalot.

So, I can use a dresser to plan outfits or whatnot because it will age my Sims to the next life stage without warning or age them by 15 days? I was about to buy the new expansion pack but now I may have to uninstall Sims 4 and delete my Origin Launcher and just give up the Sims 4 as a lost cause.  :'(

Okay, but I heard that there is a bug that ruined Sims 4 because if you try to plan outfit in a dresser the game ages up your characters or something like that. I guess that means you can't give Sims you move in a makeover, huh?

It is a known bug that Sims age while in Create a Sim. For now what you can do is play with your Sims as is or not, your choice.

Not sure if everyone is using the dresser, but I'm playing a fun game and thought I would see how bad the bug was as my sim was wondering around in summer stuff and it was winter.  I never use a dresser, only a mirror and when I click on it I pick change sim.. I was in CAS for about 20 mins and when I came out I checked the age bar and it hadn't moved. Don't know if I'm just lucky, or if maybe I've found a workaround. I checked with another sim in a different save, and it seemed to be ok too. Maybe it's worth checking?

The latest version of MC command center has a fix. That might be it

@MystiKitty  yes there is a cas bug but... it only ages your sim up incrementally. So a quick trip into CAS will only age your sim up a day or so. Not ideal I agree but it is not game breaking if you are plying with aging off (the bug still ages up your sim) or if you are just playing a casual game.

Definitely an issue for those people playing a legacy of dynasty etc but..then just don't go into CAS until a bug-fix has been released.

@Playalot My sims age even if aging is off. I agree though with a quick hand it isn't as game breaking as some of the other bugs unless you are doing a challenge or some versions of a legacy game.

I don't think it is just one bug that is game breaking but adding them all up it is game breaking for a great many playstyles. In fact the bugs have forced me to take a break until some of them are fixed. I just can't play the game how I want to at this point.

@scoed   Yes, I said that..that your sim will age up even with aging off..the part in brackets explains that.

And as for bugs, yes, they are part of the sims 4 experience. I've learnt not to get overly hyped for each DLC drop as when I lower my expectations right down then sometimes I am pleasantly surprised about some small observation. Sounds terrible but it is the only way I can still remain somewhat engaged with the game so I am able to do my job.

There never will not be bugs...right. I the entirety of it's history The Sims 4 has had severe bugs that, depending on your game play style, can be entirely game breaking... sadly, it is just part of how this game is.

I wish it were different, I also understand the QA devs work hard at bug-fixing... but bugs are definitely a 'feature' of this game. If you choose to pay money and purchase DLC, it has to come from that understanding and though it is not 'right'...it is what it is.

I personally struggled with this aspect of the game for years... now I just simply do not expect a AAA rated game even though I am paying AAA prices.

Is anyone else still finding that this is happening? I just created a new sim and it started with 2 days already added to it.

Yes, the bug is not fixed in my game either. Despite repairing, deleting the cache and whatnot :-\

@Nindigo The last patch was supposed to fix it. Have you tried it since the patch a few days ago?

I'm thinking something is still a bit off. I don't think it's fixed either.

I just made Vivienne and in that time it looks like she has aged at least two days(?)

Viv's age bar -


I saved back Tiffany from a older save and put her in the newer save as a reference point. Her age bar isn't as far along. Maybe a day(?)

Tiffany's age bar -


Updated to new patch (Nov.20th), new Sims 4 folder and new save.

The patch won't reset your already bugged-aged up sims age back but it should be stopping sims aging up any further when in CAS.

So even though I just made Vivienne today - within the last hour and looks to have "aged" two days(?) that's normal?

Sorry if the question seems silly. I've never really paid attention to the age bar because I normally play with aging off.

I've tried a few new sims and they are all at least 2 - 3 days old when out of CAS.. All post patch..

MrsFlynn - It's definitely not normal for those days to be added..  ???

Thank you for letting me know.

I did spot this on Crinrict's Twitter. She asked if anyone else is still having issues with aging, specially with newly created Sims. - https://twitter.com/crinrict/status/1065326443880693767

Though TwistedMexi thinks it's normal for a newly created Sim to have a couple of days added to their age right out of CAS.

So I don't really know what to think. *Shrug*

We had 2 days added when parenthood? came out. I am wondering if they DID fix the aging bug but the discrepancy for new CAS sims is that they only put code in for the old number of YA days?
