- Some simmers are confused with lack of clear UI indication (how do I know how long until my dog/cat ages up? How do I know what skills they have?) because you can't click on them.
- Some others are having AI issues, as their cats/dogs don't eat/sleep/poop on their own, so they have to issue orders for each of these.
- even others are finding the pet training/ befriending too easy.
- seen some complaints about the pet apocalypse in the new town. Too many strays.
Seems to me like outside of having to order your pet to satisfy their most primary needs (Which is a bug), the gameplay is being made needlessly clunky by bad UI decisions. It would be great if EA made a UI to display their age and skills (if they so wish to keep their needs secret from us).
extra issues from other people:
Major problem for me:
1. Can't create strays to add to the game
2. Can't edit animal-only households once they are in the game
These two problems have one common cause. The game does not allow anything that are not coded as teens/YA/adults/elders to have their own independent household. And that is required for having a user-created stray-household.
Food bowls go missing sometimes.
There is a fishing spot in Brindleton bay on the island that is backwards, sims fish on the land... LOL. There is also fish jumping out of the sand.. Yeah. Sandfish.
Gif. here. lol
My only bug so far is that my dog's coat seems to be missing some shaders.
He's very bright, almost glowing. I've only had one pet so far, I hope they won't all be like this.
I don't know if this issue was already mentioned, but somehow all interactions are lagging, I call my pets they don' react, I try to pet a cat that does something else, like strays jumping on objects etc and it takes minutes for my Sim to have the interaction queued but never executed. Does anybody have this problem as well? I have all mods that i used updated right now. However I DO have CC like clothes, eyes, skins etc. Could these make trouble? If so why? it's just clothes etc right? Hair etc.
I'm having a problem in Create a Pet where when I go to make a dog, it glitches out and makes this like grass background and I am not able to click anything. I took my mods out to see if that would fix it, but it is still happening. Any thoughts?
Oh and I don't know if anyone has mentioned this glitch either but I can't seem to place loveseats. They just disappear but then reappear once the game is restarted.
Wonder if anyone else is experiencing this... I have no mods, but have A TON of cc (something like 10Gb worth!). If I delete everything out of my mods folder, my Sim can pick up her pets just fine. If I put even one item in my mods folder (i.e., a painting...something pets wouldn't even interact with), then my Sim can't pick up her pets. I ran all of the Sims4Studio batch fixes, including the newest cats and dogs one, which did indeed fix other gameplay issues I was having but I can't seem to get this fixed. Repairing the game did not fix it. My Sim is living in a base game house so it isn't an issue with anything in the tray folder. Anybody have any ideas for fixing?
Also the teens homework is disappearing after travelling. The bowl is so annoying, been through so many already.
Kinda major issues on my end is mostly I wanna check the pets family tree and relationships ( I got the plum family tree app in one tab to keep track of my current household's cat generation ) and I wanna check out their age and traits in live mode than back and forth in CAS
-Dogs in the gyms and restaurants. We don’t need them there. We should have had a “no animals allowed lot trait” or a special door, or something to prevent animals from coming inside of some community lots.
-Dogs make a long pause before picking up the ball when playing fetch.
-The ball very obviously jumps into the dogs mouth
-When you choose “kiss” on a big dog ( haven’t played with small dogs yet) a hugging/playing animation plays instead.
I'm having issues with no pet vs pet interaction... they just completely ignore each other.
