Absolutely unbelievable that this issue hasn't been addressed in all this time. It is also happening on the console. No mods or CC. Is this the eway it's supposed to work now, EA? If so, please explain its *new* intended use. Come on.

Hi @FrAnKiEBaBy0212

could you please create a new thread for console. As the patches are not insync, they need to be tracked separately. Thanks

Hello everyone,

 

I just wanted to confirm that this is indeed an issue that we are aware of,  and we are currently working on it. 

 

Thank you for your patience.

Could we get an idea of when this is going to be taken care of, or some kind of idea of where it is on the priority list? This has been broken for a really long time, and it really isn't fair. It completely nerfs the book of life. I never even got to play with it when it worked :/

unfortunately EA/Maxis never gives out any ETAs on bug fixes.

So, the bug isn't related to the need to rename book before using?

In my game, some books have option to read, some don't. Sometimes the option to read gets restored and then vanishes again.

I still think it's somehow related to the old bug caused by having more than one book in any kind of inventory: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Fixed-Inventory-malfunction-if-two-Book-of-Life/m-p/6732101#M6... The workaround was to rename the books. Maybe it also works here?

 

EDIT. Checked other answers. Yes, the sim coming in and out of the lot would explain why the options are being there and then vanishing.

Hey, uh.. I saw somewhere else that the sim that the book of life is written about has to be on a different lot, for example, at work or someplace else. Then another sims can read the book and the needs will be fulfilled. Worked for me, hope this helps!

 The Book of Life can now be read if it is bound to the same lot as the Sim trying to read it. You can now truly get a life, or at least read about it.

Fixed in Patch 1.44.77
