I apologize if this belongs in the technical section instead of late night, but I'm not sure if this is a 'bug' or 'feature.' I installed Late Night this morning, and I keep having trouble with the elevators. My sim refuses to use it, and he's stuck out of his apartment! The door at the bottom is wide open, and it's been like that for about 3 sim days. It doesn't say it's broken, so I'm assuming it's a glitch? I tried moving out and moving back in again, and it persisted, so I moved somewhere else and it took less than an hour for the problem to pop up again. Anyone else experiencing this?

My sim is stuck right now too! She can't go into the elevator but she can go in the bar when it opens. SO annoying.

At least I'm not the only one. It figures the one time I buy a game on launch day it has issues that prevent me from playing properly. I even tried cheating my way around it, the only way to get in and out now is to use the moveobjects cheat and move my sim between levels every time one needs to go or come back home, but it doesn't fix the problem as I'm not allowed to delete the apartment elevators and put in a new one.

I haven't had that problem (yet :s) but I find them slow. What I mean is that I was playing the single female vampire household (can't remember her name) and her carpool came at 12:30. But by the time her neighbours got on the elevator and she sat there waiting, she was late for work! When she finally used the elevator and got to work she was about an hour late.

hmmm.. I also noticed that when I created a new sim his age meter was already partially filled up. I play under epic lifespan so it translated to about 40 missing days....

I've had a problem with an elevator. what i did was i went to town edit and went to the building with the bugged elevator. i deleted it. and added it back. and it works fine! i also had a problem in club Aquarius one of the velvet ropes is too close to the elevator and it won't let your sims enter the elevator so i did town edit again and i moved the ropes just a bit to the side and it works fine now. hope this helps

JUST KEEP SIMMING!!

Easiest way I've found to fix this problem, cancel the elevator in the Sims queue, and click somewhere in the apartment. Select "Go Here" and they SHOULD just go back up the elevator and back into the house. Then the elevator should work fine.

I was having the same issue! My Sim went to a party and when they homeowner kicked her out at 3AM she was stuck in the elevator forever. It canceled every interaction I tried.

It wouldn't let me reset the Sim but I used the 'testing' cheat and teleported to a different location with no issues.

I had that problem at Eugi's. I got an opportunity to moonlight mixology there for 6 hours but I couldn't use the elevator and neither could the bartender or anyone else. One guy went near it and barfed. I don't know what was going on.

That worked, thanks! I was trying to delete the elevator in buy mode instead of edit town and it wasn't working right.

The only issue I have with elevators is having them not go against the wall when placing them.

I don't live in an apartment but can not go to clubs because they will not go into the elevator The only time I got one up there the bar closed and she was locked inside all night Found out that was CC I had in the game and removed it all, still now they take so long to get to a club then they just stand there not getting into the elevator Very annoying Otherwise I have had no real problems but would like to go to a club....maybe one has stairs

The above tip worked like a charm: Go into Edit Town, find the offending elevator, delete and replace it. My group of four sims would get in the elevator, time out and reset themselves. Made it hard to play the gig. Thanks for the help!
