[COLLECTION THREAD] Issues with Aspirations

Original Post

Cooking on grill doesn't count toward Master Chef aspiration

[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Cook a meal on an outdoor grill, while inspired, with the Master Chef aspiration active, with a Sim who has not yet completed step 1 of that aspiration.
What happens when the bug occurs? The Sim does not receive credit toward either cooking two meals while inspired or cooking five excellent meals.
What do you expect to see? The Sim should receive credit toward completing a food aspiration for cooking on a grill the same as they do for cooking on a stove, as both raise cooking skill.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I've been grilling more than usual recently and noticed this possible bug; not sure if it was always there or even considered a bug.

 

ETA: I have tried this on the standard outdoor grills found in parks and the forest in Outdoor Retreat, not on any other grills yet.

Feathers Count As Crystals for Curator Aspiration?

★★★★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All released content installed.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Don't know how reproducible this is as this is only Curator sim I have in save. He collected 2 crystals and then 3 feathers from a pile his cat caught.
What happens when the bug occurs? Not sure if milestone to collect 5 crystals showed as completed as soon as feathers were extracted. I just noticed this had occurred in last play session. Pics attached to illustrate.
What do you expect to see? Requirement to collect 5 crystals shouldn't complete before 5 crystals are collected.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I'm not sure if there is simply a counting issue for collected crystals, or, if feathers were counted as collected crystals.  Something is off and appears to be feathers counted as crystals for the Curator aspiration in this save. 

 

The first screenshot shows completion of 5 crystals collected.  The second shows the sims inventory, which does contain all items he has collected so far.  As you can see, there are 2 crystals and 3 feathers.  The third screenshot shows the collection tab for crystals.  Two crystals collected is accurate so the game is recording correctly in that display.

Hello, 

 

My sims cannot complete the level 1 of the TechGuru requirement about playing videogame during 5 hours because the count has been frozen at 2/5.

I change aspiration in the meantime, but when i come back to this aspiration, nothing has changed : i reach the level 10 of video gaming without completing this task.

 

Does anyone have an idea ?

Hi @a1ainag

merged your post with aspiration collection thread. I'll test if I can duplicate.

 

EDIT: I've tested this and have no issues going past 4 hours. Could you try changing aspiration and back ?
