[CL] Game Initiated Social Events Freeze the Game

Issue: The game initiated social events freeze the game.
Related to: Random Neighbors Visits in City Living EP Apartments.
Additional Info: Vanilla game, Zero Mods, Zero Custom Content with a fresh game folder.
Generally this is not a real issue just an annoyance. The events start autonomously when neighbors appear to crash at your apartment or for Game Night. When the event starts the active household cannot travel during the active event. I realize this is by design,
The issue occurs when I have already initiated travel to another lot by going to Map view. I pressed the 'M' key and while the game is trying to go to map view a 'game night' social events announcement pops up. Now I am stuck in swirl mode while trying to get to map view.
Map view finally loads and I chose my destination. The white screen pops up but just sits there with the random text things scrolling by.
Travel is never completed. I waited approx 5 or 10 real time minutes and travel is never completed.
I have a copy of the save file and the last exception reports if they are needed.

Fortunately the scenario that caused the freeze has not happened again so far. Of course this is in my Rosebud in the City save rant
I have decided to cancel these social events when they pop-up.

It figures! I usually tick those things off because they seem to pop up just before my sim needs/wants to leave the apartment.

I am finding 4 to have lots of bugs too.The Social does seem to have problems. Lots of times my Sim can't travel because there's a social event going on but she's not taking part in. Nasty glitch?

Some intentional actions meant to enhance the game can create undesirable issues. I suppose the feature of drop in visits that came with City Living were supposed to increase the social aspect of the game. Being a hermit (ahem Grinch much? LOL) myself I find them a tad annoying.
I am working on Revoking all apartment keys (when I remember) and see if that decreased the visits.
For now I just cancel the visits/social events when they pop up.

When my Sim can't leave the area because of an event going on ( I have no idea what these events are , it doesn't say), I have to wait until they are over for my Sims to be able to move on.

UGH ... rant I do not like that happening. Occasionally I can neither travel nor go into build / buy mode. When i try it says it cannot be done 'while a Sim is aging up'. None of my household mind you. This happens when any Sim in the active neighborhood ages up.
As far as "can't leave the area because of an event going on" I discovered this can be cancelled. There should be an event countdown in the top left corner of the screen. You can click on the timer to end the event and free up your Sim.

I haven't noticed any of that going on in my game. However, the last time I did play, I did have two of my sims in the same household accept different invites (the ones where they leave and just disappear into la la land) and was only prompted for one sim to actually go.

I can't remember if before when sending sims out on dates, but I thought at first you could send two sims out on a date and go to many different places, such as dinner then to the park or back to your sims home, but the last few times I've actually sent any of my sims out on a date, they couldn't leave until the date actually ended. Has it always been like this? My memory fails me. Sad

Hi @Mamajanaynay hello6
From the beginning Sims 4 Dates have been limited to one location for the duration of the date outing.
Other types of outings are possible by forming groups (even if it is only two Sims) and traveling to multiple locations.
There is no guarantee that all the Sims will travel with you though.

Then that would explain it! Thanks EQ! Heart I don't know why I thought when sending two sims out on a date we could visit multiple places, although that would be a nice feature! hmm maybe I should log into the official's and post that under the idea's corner thread! Or it could already be there and I'm just now catching up. shy Ha HA
