PostSubject: Fun bar not rising in hot tubs   Wed Jun 17, 2015 12:48 pm

Cruising around the official forum, I found this thread and thought I would pass this along.

http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/839457/read-this-before-you-purchase-perfect-patio-stuff

It would appear that there is a problem with the fun bar not rising when sending sims into the tub. Odd, I thought the whole purpose for this was to help easy stressed sims...not make them more stressed!

Right! I bought it yesterday, had my hopes all up that this one would be awesome. I did a little bit of investigating of my own. To see if it was maybe something that just those few players were experiencing, because some issues that had been reported in the past did not affect my game like it did others. This is what I found out.

Yes the fun bar does appear to decrease when just relaxing in the hot tub.


However, woohoo will raise the bar. Imagine that... giggle


I also used the cheat...yeah I know...bad girl, bad girl...and maxed out my guys handiness skill. I only did this because I wanted to see if by upgrading the hot tub if having the stereo or aromatherapy would increase the fun bar. Well, it turns out that when it comes to upgrading the hot tub you have to have parts. Head Desk Nothing is easy in this game...

Okay so I was able to get my guy to gather the necessary parts to do the upgrades to the hot tub. Having the stereo and/or the aromatherapy does not(see post below) increase the fun bar. So I'm really hoping that this is indeed just a glitch. Sad

I did learn that the aromatherapy does have some benefits to them.

Jasmine oil - Makes Sims feel refreshed, reducing the duration of Sad Buff and providing a Happy Buff

Lemon oil - Makes Sims feel energized, reducing the duration of Stressed Buff and providing a Energized Buff

Peppermint oil - Makes Sims feel giddy, reducing the duration of the Uncomfortable Buff and providing a Playful Buff

Sage oil - Makes Sims feel focused, reducing the duration of the Bored Buff and providing the Focused Buff.

Great research! Thank you Wink

So what do you need? I take it you mean you cannot just order parts on the computer?

I had him choose the option to "salvage for parts" from their TV, then I had him repair the TV and then salvage for parts in the rubbish on the floor.  you need 1 common upgrade part to upgrade the hot tub to have a stereo. To upgrade to have the aromatherapy you will need 3 common upgrade parts and 1 plumbing upgrade part.

Also...I noticed that when I had my guy use the hot tub and used the Jasmine oil...his fun bar started to increase while also listening to tunes! Woop, woop!


I'm going to test further to see if it's only the jasmine oil that increased the fun level and if you have to have both stereo and aromatherapy on. When I first sent him in, it didn't raise it, but then after he got out and went back in I noticed it started to go up after I changed the oil from sage to jasmine.

So after further analysis here are my findings:

Fun level bar will increase while listening to the stereo with or without the aromatherapy on. Joy happy days! Celebrate cheers Celebrate

I saw a thread on the official forum where a SimGuru Graham replied to a twitter response on the hot tub issue. They are aware of the fun mood bar not increasing and are working on getting a patch out to fix this.

That is another Plus for Sims4 in my book. Even though bugs do exist they are quick to create a Patch to address the issue. And usually patches include Free content.

EQ, you're right about that fact. It's nearly the beginning of July so I highly doubt we will see a patch to fix the hot tub before then. But you never know...they could be whipping up something "firefabulous" for us seeing how here in the US, the 4th isn't that far away and they will be off for atleast 3 days if not 4.

Buttons, you are so welcome!

Thanks for the hot tub info, Mamajanaynay. My Sims haven't tried it yet but we're looking forward to using it. Laughing

Couldn't agree more, EQ! The Gurus are really trying their best to listen to the fans and deliver as best they can! applause

Thanks for all the info, MJ! It's cool to know the oils will set off different emotions. And the new patch (July 9th 2015) has fixed the 'fun while in hot tub' issue. Yay!
