Patch affects groups

alanmichael1alanmichael1 Posts: 2,232 Member
After the patch some Sims are excluded from my groups - I know it exactly because I had 2 brothers in a fitness group and now one isn't a member any more though he hasn't aged. Also the groups points have fallen to zero, but don't be afraid: they come back after the first group actions.

EDIT: After ending the group meeting and changing the lot, the points are zero again ... does anyone else have this problem?

    Do you by chance have any CC or mods? If so try removing them and see if the problem is still there. If not then you gotta play find the broken mod or CC game. Usually a mod but broken CC can do some funky things as well.

    No, I don't have mods/CC. I have repaired the game, hopefully this helps.

    EDIT: Didn't help :'( .

    Same here. Everything has gone back to zero and the two extra member I bought with club points are gone too. It has reverted back to the original 6 and removed the two most recent members.
    Again Im a no CC or mod player too. Ill see if I can get the extra members back and then see what happens after and update you guys.

    I suggest contacting @SimGuruNick or @SimGuruArvin on twitter.

    OMG the group system in my game seems to be completely destroyed. I can't hire any new members - after restarting the game they are always gone.

    That is useful information, thank you for posting. Will stay offline until we hear more about it.

    Hope you will have your groups back soon :smile:

    I earned enough to add an extra member and then a few more points but all of them went but as soon as the gathering ended and I changed lot, it reset to zero and removed the perk.
    It's a shame as I kinda stopped playing with Clubs and had really got into this one. But with 1/4 of the members now removed and all perks gone, it feels a little redundant. Any help would be welcome.

    @alanmichael1 awww, we should form a club about it. Haha.

    I have the exact same problem. I have capacity upgrades, but my last two members have been evicted and I can't add them back because last two spots remain locked.

    Is this in clubs where you're going over the beginning available number and using perks for that? Or does it kick new members back out even if you're staying below that beginning number? (Just asking for clarification - I won't have a chance to play much for at least a few days because December)

    It's true.....

    My clubs are broken. This is in a brand new TS4 folder and after a game repair (I always do this with every new patch). The save is CC/Mod free. It's a base save I created prior and all my clubs are messed up.

    I my game every new member is evicted after restarting the game, no matter if it is the 4th or 6th. I have now dissolved my old groups and founded a new one to see if the problem persists.

    @CarpeNoctemSims I want to be a member in your group IRL!!! However this looks as if only an emergency patch can save us.

    If you try to go over the base 6, they don't stay. Before the patch, there were 8 members in that club and they had points. The points are gone and so are the two members. I can't add them back, they don't stay.

    LOL that's my criminal organization. They fight my detective club at the bar. It's pretty awesome to watch. I can't play this game without my clubs because I have everything carefully set up to make my game crazy and feel alive.

    Thankyou for the update SimGuruNick.
  • crinrictcrinrict Posts: 17,715 Member
    Is this all on existing clubs ? Can you guys make a new club and see if you have the same issue ?

    Also try on a new game (for troubleshooting purposes)

    We're looking into this, thanks much for the reports!

    Thank you!!

    I need my clubs, my game is dead without them.

    I can do that for you. I pulled my TS4 folder out prior to the patch and did a repair, like always. I can just delete the copy of the save I have in there and make a new one to see what happens. Also, CC/Mod free.

    I just tested in a new save game and the issue is still there. I purchased the capacity upgrade perk and added a seventh member. When I started gathering the second time, the new member got evicted and his spot now remains locked.

    I have the same setup. The first time I saw it in action happened to be Bear Night too. It was epic.

    @SimGuruNick Thank you :)

    Really sad to hear that.

    Oh well, guess the guys are looking into this and it will hopefully be fixed soon.
