Glitch -White/gray oval object on ground that doesn’t belong

After getting the Supernatural expansion pack, I started seeing these whitish/gray oval objects on the ground that I knew were rendering glitches because they would have rendering issues as you would rotate your view around it. It definitely seemed out of place, not part of the normal view or like any normal object. Hovering over it did not bring up any info, and I was in a community lot at the time, so I couldn’t go to Buy mode to see what it was. Just now I saw two of the ovals in my Sim’s home. I went to buy mode to try to pick it up, but it said object was in use. I then used the MoveObjects on cheat to pick up the object. It is described as a Social Jig 2 person. A quick search brought up a forum post about it (back in August 2011). The poster says it’s something the game uses to make sure two sims are positioned correctly for a social interaction, and you shouldn’t be able to see it, because the game should delete it after the social interaction is over. Weird how I just started seeing them in Supernatural. Another forum poster said it was blocking traffic, so if this is the case I guess I’ll have to use the MoveObjects cheat to delete it.

  1. I have 7 of these on the mail floor of my sims house. I’ve tried to get rid of them, but it says they’re in use. My sims can’t even access the fridge. :/ Damn this glitchy mess of a frustrating, expensive, time-suck.

  2. I have the same problem. I saw one at the festival grounds in Moonlight Falls. Then I saw another one at my sim’s house near the mailbox. Thanks for making this post. I didn’t know what it was.

  3. Thanks for the comment and glad I could help. Your blog looks interesting too, and that house you created looks awesome! I don’t have any third-party mods except Naas Overwatch but I’ll have to try out the house anyway!

  4. I have the same problem and when i tried to use MoveObject cheat it didnt work.. please help :/

  5. these can be deleted by activating the testingCheatsEnabled true cheat. then hold shift and click the oval thing, and delete it :)!

  6. I had the same problem (though i dont have supernatural). I just enabled cheat codes (ctrl + shift + c, then type “testingcheatsenabled true”) and shift clicked on the object, then selected “object…”, “delete it”. Hope I helped 😉
