Product: The Sims 4
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? 18.104.22.1680
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All by Nifty Knitting, Realm of Magic, and My First Pet Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Nothing in particular. Just have a 5-star celebrity get the Easy Street perk and send them to work.
What happens when the bug occurs? Nothing "happens." The sim's boss will call threatening to fire them if they don't improve. They will also have moodlets from the Easy Street perk, boasting about how cool it is to not worry about working hard, as well as a moodlet about not doing well at work.
What do you expect to see? The Easy Street perk should cancel the boss calling, but also, a sim who goes to work every day should not see a decline in their performance.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. This is a very new problem, so I would assume it occurred within the last one or two patches.
I have a level 5 celebrity with the Easy Street perk, but recently his job performance has been declining and got down into the poor range despite never missing work. He's at the top of his career (the intelligence branch of the military) so I don't bother with the daily tasks. That's never been a problem before. I didn't notice how bad the performance was until the boss called to say his performance was shaky. Even still, shouldn't the Easy Street perk make the boss not care about the performance?
I'm testing this in a vanilla save and will return with findings.
