Chef stands outside restaurant

Problem

I opened my restaurant and all employees arrived as expected. The Chef doesn’t want to enter the restaurant though. He stands outside and doesn’t move.

Cause

Unklar.

Solution

You can make the Chef enter the restaurant by resetting him.

Do the following steps to use the cheat console

  1. Open the cheat console with ctl-shift-c
  2. Enter the cheat you need in the entry box which appeared in the upper left corner of your screen.
  3. Hit ENTER
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 for every necessary cheat.
  5. After entering all needed cheats, close the cheat console with ctl-shift-c
  1. Enter testingcheats true in the cheat console
  2. Hold Shift and click on your Sim at the same time.
  3. Choose Reset Object (Debug)

After that the Sim should walk over to the stove and start cooking.

Some people have also reported that just interacting with the Chef helps but that didn’t work for me.
