Sims 4 GTW: Detective cannot find teen with ambitious trait

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Newbie

I have been enjoying this game great job! So far I have been absorbed in the Detective career so far and it is brill.

 

But, I have to find and arrest a teenage sim with an ambitious trait. I have attended at least 5 APBs but there is no one even close to the full description ; blonde, jeans, jacket, teen ambitious trait.

 

Looking at the fan forums I am not the only one to experience this, but I can't find a proper fix Frown 

 

One thing I have been advised to try is to arrest a young adult matching the description instead of a teen.

 

Will try this and hopefully it will work!

 

But it's not really a fix more of a workaround so I am reporting it hope you can help sort Standard smile 

 

Thanks

I believe there can be 2 separate problems - incorrect traits, when the traits just have nothing to do with the suspect, and IMPOSSIBLE traits, when the traits compose the character that just can't exist in the game (teen+ambitious).

Might have the same cause though.

[GTW] Police career - suspect does not show up

[ Edited ]
★★★ Newbie

hi,

 

I've got a problem with the police career: the suspect does not show up, when I start a search. I've got six hints now (male, teenager, blond, wears shorts, wears longsleeved shirt, trait ambious). I don't get more hints from analyzing etc. I've initiated over 15 searches so far. there's only one male, blond teenager who wears shorts and a longsleeved shirt from time to time, who is not the right person. arrested him twice and that got me throw backs in my career, because I've arrested the wrong person.

 

I use no mods, ect. I'm playing on a MAC. 

 

thx for helping!

EDIT: I just stumbled over this thread (sorry, that I haven't seen it before): http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4-Bug-Reports/GTW-Incorrect-suspect-traits/m-p/4486122#U4486122

 

it seems to be the same problem. obviously it has to do something with the suspects being teens.

Re: [GTW] Police career - suspect does not show up

I have been having the same problem with the last two investigations my police officer conducted. There is never a suspect that matches the description. My suspects are adults, not teens so the problem is not limited to just teen suspects. I have the max number of clues in the case. I question people at the location and they point to where they saw the suspect but he's not there. One time, the person I questioned pointed to the guy next to him and said "he's right there" but the guy he pointed did not fit the suspects description in any way.

 

No CC, no mods.

  • Fixed an issue that could result in no suspects being shown with some clue combinations.

Hoping that this is what they fixed

 

Feedback appreciated

Hey, thanks Crin.

 

I downloaded the update last night and tried catching a couple of suspects. One was a young adult and the other was a teen. Both matched their descriptions perfectly. I'll test it out again when I get chance but it looks like the issue has been fixed Confusedmileyvery-happy:
