In Sims 3, me and my fiancee have settled with doing the change active household style of playing as discussed here Multiple users and households in Sims 3
Anyway, I have a feeling that some of the NPCs and the other Sim is getting stuck somewhere. Let me explain. Say i have Sim-A, and my fiancee uses Sim-B. I am currently playing my sim (Sim-A) and going about with my busy career etc. I do try to call on Sim-B to invite her over etc and she keeps saying sure, but 5 seconds later she says something came up. That seemed possible(even after 2 days of trying to call...my sim is lazy and busy so going to Sim-B's apartment is not really practical at the moment)
So, when I sometimes try to play for tips in front of the movie theater, I see a bunch of NPCs naturally go there and sometimes chat around, do whatever the want, etc. I do notice though that most(if not all) of them are complaining of lack of sleep etc. I noticed this too when playing Sim-A or Sim-B(when playing Sim-A, Sim-B keeps complaining of lack of sleep, and vice versa)
This also happens to most Sim-A's friends. They all complain and I had a suspicion that they're getting stuck somewhere. So the question is, is this a known bug, or is there a way to "debug" this problem without using tedious methods(like logging into every active household and checking them one by one)?
An added note: Sim-B invited Sim-A to stay the night over since they're both tired(and still complaining of lack of sleep). Sim-B proceeded to sleep on her bed, but Sim-A just stood there, waiting for something to happen(add to the fact that Sim-A was already RELAXING on the bed...he stood up to do nothing!). After an hour of just standing there, I finally got fed up and switched active household over to Sim-A. He certainly wasn't stuck and I had to manually ask him to sleep on the bed(which he did).
I am playing Late night btw and the only other major mod i don't have is fast lane(and i think that's even just a stuff expansion)
I hope someone can shed light into this. I have a feeling Im gonna have to reset all the sims in my town for this to work
