    While my sim was painting, I stopped her so she could answer her door, and now the paintbrush is stuck to her hand. When she continues to do other things, the paintbrush leaves her hand, but kind of just floats in front of her until she's done, and then it returns.

    Edit: Seems to have fixed itself when I had my sim travel to another lot. :)

    Are you using mods: No
    Are you using custom content (as in clothing and objects) ?: No
    What is your Operating System (XP, Vista, Win 7, Win 8, Win 8.1): Windows 7
    Do you have the download or DVD Version of the game ?: Download

    This is similar to the "stuck object to hand" just posted above, but it was with my Sim's cell phone. I was able to fix it by going to the dresser and hopping into CAS, then exiting out.

    My sim is a level 8 guitarist and when he goes to write a song he plays and plays even when I cancel the action. I have to reset him. I've tried for (sim) hours to see if he'd skill up or write the darn song, but he hasn't. If I jam or whatever else the actions are for leveling up it works fine, but writing a song will not work for me. It's not allowing me to get him advanced in is job. Any answers?

    Bills arriving when off the home lot can't be paid. They appear in inventory, can click "pay bills" but the interaction is automatically cancelled before it gets active. No "pay bills" options on phone or computer either. Power got shut off, water got shut off, still can't pay the bills.

    Managed to circumvent it by merging my current household with the Goth family, then separating the households, moving in to an empty lot and building a new house.

    Then new bills arrived on that Monday, which can't be interacted with. Only solution thus far is to create a new game.

    ETA: Using no mods, no CC, no nothing.

    I've not got the game yet myself, but I have been reading a lot in threads that a good amount of people are having issues with last names not changing when sims get married. (In case no one reported that yet..)

    I'm having an issue with my lifespan settings. I changed it from normal to long. I saved the game and just so happened to go back into game options again and it's back on normal :(

    I'm on Windows 7 with no mods/cc and I have the download version.

    Hey guys, experiencing a"bug" in which my Sim will only eat half of her food and then set it back down on the table/counter. Her hunger need is usually about half full or lower. It seems that she cannot finish 1 plate of food to fulfill her hunger need. I just end up cooking a few meals so that she can eat half of all of them...

    Went to a community lot and when my sims returned home, the fridge was missing! lol However it was there in my family inventory when I opened build/buy....so..yeah. I've gone to community lots several times before and since with no issues like that.
    My game is freshly installed and vanilla, never had mods installed thus far.

    My sim has an invisible coffee mug stuck in his hand. He can't eat or perform certain interactions with his hand/arm stuck in the "holding a cup" position :( I feel an impending death coming soon...

    I had my female sim get a fork stuck on her hand but it eventually went away after I slept. This coffee mug issue is different.

    Edit: After a full pc system restart my sim was back to normal.

    My shower animation keeps running, I know that's already been reported.

    What is your Operating System? Windows 8.1
    Do you have the download or DVD Version of the game? Digital download

    The problems I have experienced so far are:
    1. Even when you put lots of lights in a home, Sims stay relatively dark compared to the walls or furniture (see this picture)
    2. Pregnant Sims showing almost instantly (Right after I took the pregnancy test that I took right after Trying for Baby)
    3. Forks stuck in hands well after the Sim was done eating
    4. Showers still running and neither having a Sim use it nor buying a new one fixed it
    5. Sims that are sitting on the couch all of a sudden appear in the middle of the room (standing up)

    I realize some of these are already on the list, but I thought it wouldn't be a bad idea to mention them anyway to demonstrate how common they are.

    Oh and btw, I don't think the "Troll teh Forums" thing is a typo. They're just trying to be funny like people on meme websites where they misspell "the" on purpose.

    The maids are definitely buggy. I already reported that my maid kept freezing in front of the refrigerator except for doing a strange, jerky, repetitive head movement. Well, now the maid has disappeared completely as if they'd never hired him to begin with. My Sims now have the option to hire another maid, but they'd never actually fired the first one. He just disappeared. Very glitchy.

    No mods/cc. Windows 7, using the disc version of the game. 64-bit. Nvidia Geforce GTX 260.

    I play the vanilla base game with no mods. Using download version on windows 7.

    The baby is sent to daycare when the parents are working. The child sim I have comes home from school and the baby comes back from daycare. SO..the problem is the baby has a dirty diaper and is hungry but the child can't change it or feed it. The baby just keeps crying and screaming and I have to wait for the parents to come home from work. So if the child acts as a babysitter why can't they do anything with the baby? Very annoying.

    @Daethaqt: Sorry, I don't understand what you are trying to say

    Regarding my Missing casDemo Sims problem, Thats how I get them in the full game. I upload them to the gallery from CASDemo Then Download them from The Gallery while in Full Game.

    I also would like to say Babies are glitched they are seriously stretched out!!! Almost Exploded.

    I think this is similar to one already reported. Just adding for more information. Context. I had been fiddling around with the game options trying to "turn off" game tips when to my dismay I reset the tutorial. I had saved the game while my sim was at work before she came home. I used the tip from SimVip for disabling tutorial through the command line
    --no_tutorial
    
    . I think it unlikely the no-tutorial trick is related but I include the info for context. When I loaded the saved game my sim had returned from work but her icon was bugged showing she was still at work. Resetsim had no effect. Moving the household to another house did not fix it.

    My screen goes black when I select any object in buy mode. I then have to close game and the same thing happens. Everything else is fine but pretty useless without buy mode.
