[ECO] Eco Inspector and other services don't show up

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

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 is your current game version number? 1.67.45.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Eco lifestyle, City Living, Get Together, Cats and Dogs, Get to Work, Seasons+ Dine Out, Strangerville, Jungle Adventure, Parenthood, Vampires, Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat + Fitness and Backyard Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Not sure?
What happens when the bug occurs? Eco Inspector doesn't show up. I have tried on two different lots in Port Promise. Haven't tried in other neighborhoods yet. If I exit game or acitve househould and reload, i will see an alert saying my footprint was lowered while I was away. I'm having issues with all services in general: pizza delivery, caterers etc. Most commonly they don't show up at all. Also, can't complete freelance gigs but that's a seperate issue other users have discussed already. I just downloaded the Eco Lifestyle expansion so I'm super bummed with all the glitches.
What do you expect to see? The servicemen hired to appear.
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

@olianatasha Could you test another hood as well as another save game to see if they show up here ?

For the pizza service there's a thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Pizza-not-getting-delivered/td-p/9385725

For the caterer: is that for an event or if you hire them through the fridge ?

Hi there!  I am, I didn't see your previous response, thank for checking back in.  Let me do what you suggested (after I'm done working for the day) and I'll get back to you! 

 

Thanks again Standard smile

Hi there.  I don't have any issues other than the eco inspector at this point.  I've done what you've asked.  He never shows up in either Eco Lifestyle neighborhood (tried on 3 different lots), or in another world.  I also loaded a new game, and no visit then either. Frown  

 

What do you think I should do next? 

 

Thanks

@olianatasha In the new game, I didn't even get a notification about a visit "while I was away."

@olianatasha Not sure what makes the inspector not show up.

There's going to be a patch this week. I would wait for that and see if it works after.
