ISSUES/BUGS with Dine Out

edited June 2016 in Game Packs
I LOVE DINE OUT, but A few things need to be ironed out in my opinion.. like:
  • The "Disallow new customers" .. new customers are still entering. Am I doing this wrong?
  • The Customers who I recommend dishes for are NEVER greeted by a server and the dishes arent made. Its like " You recommended it huh? well go make it.
  • Dinner Parties arrive late. One sim (Finally takes their seat) and a few sim hours later another sims joins their table (sometimes from the same household)
  • Sims (when they finally sit and order) Take the the drink and place elsewhere (after getting up) so they are just standing there not doing anything.
  • After ordering I notice sims tend to get up.. probably go back to the hostess stand, I know shes cute with her make up and all but sheesh.
  • Sometimes Wait staff do not show up for their shift. I don't know if they knew we were open or just had to take a sick day which never came in the mail.
  • Cannot add a new uniform.. we have to edit an existing uniform
  • Booths are not registering as proper seating
  • Sims are leaving their books on tables

So Far these are the issues that I have in my game. Everything else seems to run smooth.
When go out as a customer things are fine (Less sims at restaurant though) but when I'm running my restaurant that is where I have problems.

Feel free to add to this list or if you have any solutions <3

Some solutions I have:
  1. Ensure mods are disabled. Major Key Alert
  2. If your employees are disappearing or not coming back the next day I believe this is because of culling. what I did was hire the sims then place them into a household.

    When in a dating event, if i order for table once, nothing happens. If I try again, the game becomes unresponsive. and no menu appears while entire screen is greyed out as if there was a pop up menu.

    Hmm this hasn't happened to me though, my date ran smoothly.

    I'm not having issues with dating that sounds like it might be a mod related issue.

    I disabled all script mods to see if that was the issue, and it wasn't.

    I went to Chez Llama, everything went smoothly until after we were seated, I clicked on the waiter and selected order for table once, Nothing happened. Then did it again, and the game screen turned grey like when you have a pop up menu or message, except there was no message box, and nothing to click on. So the only way i could get out was to alt-tab and end task.

    I have the disallow problem. When "disallow" is on, I'll get a lull in business during off hours, but during peak meal times, they just keep on coming so I have to close and lose the profits from those who were still in the middle of their meals.

    Also, my customers in restaurants, whether it's my place or I'm just visiting, get up to eat and drink and wander to talk to people at other tables, so at times, I've got entire gangs of people just standing there chatting with each other and sometimes eating.

    Those are the only two problems I've run into so far.

    Try clicking on the table that is what you are supposed to order from so perhaps something else got clicked on at the same time and caused the program to go into nonresponsive mode? Good luck!

    Also make sure the actions that you are trying to do don't require a perk to do! You may be trying to do some of the stuff too soon. It is a Business you have to work your way up. At the beginning i believe their was a msg that said 56% of all restaurants fail within the first 6 months, this is not supposed to be an overnight success. Good Luck!

    Yeah Like I want to stop having people in around 9pm and close the restaurant around 11:30.

    Lol what you're saying has nothing to do with what we are talking about which is sims walking about and not eating. Restaurants would fail yes if people were not coming in.

    I don't know if this is a bug yet. I didn't have any problems with musical chairs UNTIL I got the Faster Eater perk. Almost immediately they started to eat faster, and they would stand up as soon as their food arrived, wander over to different diners and even leave the restaurant with their food untouched. This is with 5 star customers. I guess they left good reviews so I can't complain, but I want my customers to enjoy their meals. I may go back to an earlier save and not get the Faster Eater perk.

    I never thought about that. I also have the faster eater perk, but I think it was happening before that.

    Yeah, that broke at the patch update, but people who weren't using CAS might not have noticed till now. 1.6 is available and works.

    Here's a bug: my chef showed up for work, then not only stopped working but went home. I called her back the only way I could: "hangout at current lot" and she came in plain clothes with no way to get her to work. Blegh, lost a whole day because of her. I ended up hiring another chef at the last second so I would at least be not too deep in the red.

    The main bug, at least as dining goes, is Sims getting up out of their chairs while dining, and just standing absolutely still, doing nothing, before sitting back down.

    This has to be fixed. The "musical chairs" bug that has plagued the game for a very long time is still rampant in the game, and this glitch prevents you from doing anything at all with the Sim it affects. I knew this would happen, as I saw it on the live stream just as they were explaining how hard they worked towards preventing it happening.

    I understand it must be a hard glitch to fix, but it definitely should not be left without getting fixed for good.

    I hope we get a quick patch update really soon to at least iron out some things :l

    I......can't visit any restaurants :D
    I tried going out to lunch with my new couple and got an error saying that the lot was incomplete even though it was a premade one that came with the pack. Then after that message pops up, it just kicks me back to the world select screen

    It's probably a mod issue :/

    So I went back to the earlier save and didn't add the Faster Eater perk. No musical chairs. Well, almost. One guy did seem to wander around a little, but he sat down at a large table with some sims he didn't come in with and he did get served (and talk to the sims). This is similar to what they were talking about on the live broadcast, a group may break up into separate tables if a large one isn't available. Well, it's almost like what they were talking about.


    Anyway, that worked out much better than the Faster Eater perk. The sims stayed at their tables and ate their meals and had a good time. Except for the wanderer. I'll just headcanon that to mean he came into the restaurant and decided to join some friends at their table.

    Me too. I just find it so ironic though that, exactly 30 mins into the live stream, they were going on and on about how they worked hard to prevent it from happening, yet there is a Sim doing it RIGHT as they said that (look at the ginger Sim 30 mins in if you want to see for yourself).

    I'm sure they know it's an issue though, and I hope it will get fixed ASAP.
