4AM wakeup
« on: June 05, 2020, 12:11:45 PM »
Hello.  I've had this problem for a while and keep forgetting to ask about it until now.

My Sim keeps waking up at 4AM, no matter how little or how much sleep he gets.  This does not happen when my Sim travels.  I am sure there is an archived answer for this bug, but I am not sure where to look.  Was (Is) there any way to rectify this?  Thanks in advance.

I've not had that problem before but two things come to mind. Is there an alarm clock in the room or does the sim have an early work shift?

I know my school age kids wake up at 7, an hour before the school bus arrives, as do sims who have jobs that start early in the morning.

Or maybe your sim is a light sleeper and wild horses or deer are running through the lot at that time?

If it's neither of those, have you tried buying a different bed, or sleeping in a different room?

If you have NRaas Master Controller, you could always reset the sim, the lot, or the town, to see if that helps.

I did a little research about the issue and also found this information:

Let me know if any of that helps and if not, we can research it some more.

Yes the the 4am wake up is a bug.

The fix for it is to move your family out and then back in again.

Try moving your family out and back in again to see if that helps?

I had a odd bug happen in my game recently where the mailbox wouldn't allow me to set static needs.  What I ended up doing is move my family out to the clipboard and saved my house to the library. Bulldozed the lot and then replaced the house.

It was a little bit of a pain, but I'm happy I did that as it gave me back the option to set static needs.

You're welcome!! :)

Oddly that's my first time getting the mailbox issue, like -ever-, so it hit me by surprise. I'm happy I was able to find a fix for it.

Yeah, I was able to get bills, but no letters.

Hopefully the suggestions will help you in your game too!!
