I rarely get bugs or weird behaviour in my game, but this one cropped up tonight and it is really frustrating me. >:( I posted this over at the MTS help forums, but I'll post it here too in case anyone on LJ can give any advice!

"Had a weird bug crop up tonight. I have a Sim family, and I noticed that the little girl had crawled into her parents bed next to mom to sleep. So I woke her up and told her to go sleep in her own bed. But every time I queued that up, the icon in the queue changed from her own bed to the parent's bed and she went to sleep there instead.

So I got both the parents in bed so it wasn't available, but now the option to sleep in her own bed is just GONE, even though she was very low on energy.

Included a screenshot to show what I mean.

I changed the bed to another one, rearranged the room, saved, exited, reloaded etc. I had recently downloaded a couple new hacks, so I removed them from the game but no effect.

So for now she is having to sleep on the couch which seems to be no problem, but I can't figure out what is causing this bug and how to fix it?"

Hmm, do you have any hacks relating to bed ownership or related with sleep?

I suggest trying the game without any hacks, and seeing if that helps. Hopefully you got your hacks in a place you can find them :O

I've never seen anythin like this though :/

I have a hack that makes Sims sleep through the night, so if they go to bed after i believe 8pm, they don't wake up in the middle of the night - i *think* it just applies to toddlers and kids though? and other than that i have one that raises the energy level of all beds to 10. but that's more of an object behaviour hack... and i have had both in my game for a while and had no troubles. i downloaded a couple completely unrelated hacks recently (as mentioned) and deleted them just in case, but this error still persists :(

Well a CC could still conflict with the hacks, even if its not a hack. One time I was playing my hood, and no one could get pregnant even trying many many times. I did testing with my CC and found out Holy Simoly's hottub was causing it o_o It may not be the hottub causing it, but it could of conflicted with something else. This was a few years ago though.

Try playing without any hacks, or without your whole downloads folder. Just try the bed thing again and dont save the game. You can put back your dl folder and everything would be back to normal.

For the testing cheats, put: boolprop testingcheatsenabled true, and shift+click the bed and there should be a force error option. This would reset it but doesnt guarantee that your problem is gone.

Hope this helps :O

That's strange indeed... The only thing I can think of is try forcing error to the bed and reset it. Or force error and reset the girl herself. I also agree with Katween, it's good to try loading the game without any hacks.

and by forcing error I of course mean by testingcheats.

Yeah, i was gonna say the same thing ;)

Is she having problems with single beds only?

The only bed I've tried to get her to sleep in were single beds, I am not sure if there is a problem with double beds (although she was climbing into her parents bed)

Here is a pretty good guide about testingcheats: http://www.modthesims.info/article.php?t=103926. Download the .pdf file and follow instructions. :) When you have activated the cheat, shift-click on a sim or object and choose "force error" and "reset". I have the cheat on autonomously every time I open the game, but at first you should be careful while using it. It has so many great features, that I bet you are going to enjoy it too! :)
