All these issues I have noticed since installing generations, but obviously extend and involve other expansions and may have existed prior to generations, but are never getting fixed. So annoyed.
My generations bugs that I have discovered so far include:
Teen cannot socialize with other teens except "Snub", "Stop doing that" or "Call over". Seems to be only the ones that they meet through the "Meet new Friends" selection when at high school.
Imaginary friend keeps following kids into bathroom so that they cancel showering or going to bathroom constantly.
The free vacation can completely ruin the "town/family" you are playing. Just stay away from it. Opportunities and real travel to WA towns are particularly impacted. I've had it do some very extreme things and thought the family was completely ruined, so have a backup.
Tattoo and styling station are still resetting ages. Really obnoxious. I just keep my sims away from these for now which is unfortunate.
Everybody becomes a celebrity, regardless. I don't know how to avoid becoming a celebrity. It's obnoxious. I really hate the paparazzi always hanging out outside homes or even entering if you have an arch to the outside from an indoor space.
Relationships continue to decay with even having LTR Long-distance friend and Charisma challenge achievement etc. Not sure if this has something to do with being a celebrity and possibly scandals/rumors etc. related.
WA excavations still screwed up. Sim gets the blocked/can't reach/use bubble and stomps/throws a fit. Have fixed this with a mod which I don't like doing.
Vampires are overrunning my towns. They are far too common and I feel like they should allow us to tweak this some in the options etc. It seems like at least half or more of the other sims become vampires. In Bridgeport, its even more.
Weird bugs with the photography skill, such as when taking a picture of the pyramids, my sim totally freezes and cannot cancel the interaction and the entire photography skill page/journal is completely blank. Must use resetSim to unfreeze the sim.
The entire household gets the same memory pop-up even if they didn't have any involvement. Particularly when one sim gets a party invitation, everyone gets the memory. Also when teaching to drive, walk, talk, potty train.
At Bridgeport, an apartment's elevator screwed up and locked the entire family out of access to their apartment and I have evicted them and replaced the apartment and everything and still doesn't work. In build mode with family evicted, it shows as in use by a sim, but cannot be deleted even with moveobjects_on cheat because of the rules of the apartments.
Teenagers get stuck with the "sneaking" walk after they are grounded even if they are home or ungrounded etc. Sim has to be moved to clipboard with another adult and back into the house which loses opportunities and wishes. ResetSim does not work for this. Also, grounded teenagers have to sneak away and can get in more trouble for going to school.
It'd be great if these would be added to the first post so that EA might notice. Thanks.
I've noticed ever since Ive downloaded this expansion that there are moments of lag, especially inthe create a sim/change your look tool.Anyone else notice this?
I haven't played ts3 in a while and decided to get the generations ep, I understand there have been some patch fixes so I'm not certain if this is a bug that hasn't been addressed. I was playing late night and my sim baby seems to get memories that the sim parents normally obtains. (i.e getting party invite memories) Are the sim infants suppose to get those memorables? FYI, I do not have any mods or cc installed. Some light on this issue would be helpful ty in advance.
i had the same problem with one of my sims when they went to cuddle on the couch and the man left, the woman's arms dragged around the house as he walked out, i was playing this on showtime but i have every expansion pack. i just exited out of it without saving and the problem has not reoccured.
