Can't repair or upgrade bathtubs anyone else having same issue

What title says I can't repair or upgrade my bathtubs with hardiness skill, even tried putting the bathtub outside to make sure wasn't any routing issue blocking the way, also turned off all mods and is same thing. The Sim makes the motion at if they can't reach the object and the action is immediately cancelled out, anyone else experiencing the same never happened to me before. I Can't say for sure what it started since usually use showers most the time since they require less space, but since adding a bathtub again they been not working properly at least for me personally. Not sure if it's general thing or not right now I am forced to use cheat menu to repair, since I refuse to pay for repairs for something that's bugging out for me.

    I had that happen in my game too. A bathtub got broken on a spa lot and my sim couldn't fix it no matter what. Tried to move it to another location as I also thought that it must be some pathing issue, but no. I eventually replaced it with a new tub.

    I've noticed that my sims can't do all the upgrades for the bathtubs as well & I only play vanilla. What's up with that?

    That has been happening to me, as well. Very annoying. I've tried turning moveobjects off, changing the location of the bathtub, but nothing seems to fix it.Not even placing it outside the house, surrounded by open space, can solve the issue. My sims keep saying they can't reach the tub either way. I've pretty much given up of putting bathtubs in my bathrooms since the last update. :'(

    I'm having the exact same issue.

    Yeah, I think there's a bug thread for that somewhere, if I'm remembering right. But, I think I tried to report it a quite a while ago, so I could be remembering wrong lol.

    I can't even get a repair person to repair tubs, I just always have to replace them, and it's been going on for a while now. Vry annoying. It's one thing to to be able to upgrade, but not being able to repair--in a game where everything tends to break all the time--is just intolerable.

    I gave it a look but couldn't find out where you'd bug report it so thought maybe this was the place?

    Happened to me as well. And also to James Turner in his Cottage Living LP iirc. It's very annoying and I hope it gets fixed soon.

    I'm following this. This issue seems to happen for certain bathtubs...

    Your doing a excellent job Beta Testers. Keep up the good work and someday a fix may appear as your reward.

    I don't know how they managed to break the bathtubs, they didn't even add a new bathtub, let alone new code for them. You'd think if they didn't update it they wouldn't break it. :lol:

    Ah, finally found this discussion!

    Yes, I am having this issue too. Even with bath and shower combos.
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.

    I found that bath & shower combos can be upgraded. But they are still unable to be repaired.
    I hope this issue will be completely addressed soon. :(

    Oh, no. Again. I tried to have my sim upgrade a bathtub (which is crafted by the sim) and failed. The sim was not able to find a path to the bathtub, same as before.
    This issue seems to be unsolved yet, but I wonder why upgrading sometimes succeed.

    I find that I can't add the eco upgrades to all bathtubs or shower/tub combos. It doesn't matter whether I try to upgrade them with eco or regular parts, I can't install the two eco upgrades if there is a tub in the object (including hot tubs). Haven't had a repair situation with the bathtubs yet but from what I'm seeing I expect that a repair will fail with the same routing complaint I get every time I ask my sim to upgrade the tub.

    There is a complaint thread on EA HQ if you want to add a me too.

    You are right. Regular upgrades (Clean Coat, Self Cleaning, Sturdy Faucets) are OK, but eco-upgrades (Water Recycler, Add H20 Siphoner) cause the routing error.
    As for bath &shower combos, the "unable to repair" issue still remains. I'm afraid it will be same for the case of bathtubs.

    I keep following this AHQ thread and I clicked "Me too" already.
    I really, really hope this problem is fixed because the "Water Recycler" is one of my favorite upgrade.

    I am looking to fix my diy bath tub, i think from... Strangerville?

    This is a bug. It's very annoying.
    So far I've been cheating to fix the tubs. Shift-Click and press Repair.
  • BeardedgeekBeardedgeek Posts: 5,165 Member
    It makes sense that this bug would arrive with a rework of Spa Day; remember they caused the non-functional bathtubs (as in you never got clean) when they extended spa functionality to all bathtubs with Island Living.

    There is obviously something bad with the spa code.

    I've been wondering when they added the spa functions to bathtubs for household.
    I'm OK if the dev. says these functions need to be removed from the bathtubs in the Buy mode to fix this issue.
    When I want to take a Mud Bath, I go to the Spa venue. :)

    Tried this just get the option to reset object. This is still a bug after the latest November updates. This dos not happen if you are running the legacy build .read some where that it’s to do with the get famous pack. How hard Is it for ea to fix the code.
