Fixed an issue in which Enhancing Utility Bots would get cancelled inappropriately.


Fixed in Patch 1.59.73

Same thing happened to me, I can't upgrade the robot, it's level 1 and all the materials disappear. I hope they fix it soon.

I have the same problem. Trying to upgrade lvl 1 clean bot. I lose 2 mechanisms every time I try and upgrade just cancels itself and nothing happens. I reloaded my game, and then dismantled the bot. Rebuilt it, and then it started working again.

I tested this. I levelled up a sim to level 9 Robotics skill and made a Cleaner-Bot. It came out at Upgrade level 3. I then tried the pie menu option to Enhance it, with the required amount of items in the sim's personal inventory. The interaction was interrupted and fell out of the queue. When my sim had more than the, according to the tooltip, required items in the inventory, the Enhancement started and followed through.

 

Depending on the upgrade level of the Cleaner-Bot it seems the game takes double/more than 1x the number of each required item for the upgrade. The short animation that goes with it (before the whole animation of banging a hammer on robot and head starts) looks like it plays twice as well. So if there is not enough of each item in the inventory when starting the Enhancement interaction; the items are still taken, but the interaction interrupted.

 

Picture to make it clear: amount of each items in inventory pre upgrade (to level 10):

Amount of items in inventory post successful upgrade:

After being upgraded to level 10 there was no option on the robot to Enhance it further.

Same problem.

 

My Sim never completes the task. She starts to "enhance" the bot then gets distracted by another task. This uses up all he parts and there is no "resume" for this task. I've tried giving her no other tasks as well as stacking tasks, either way she abandons the "enhance" task and my parts disappear.

Same here. So far Servo seems to upgrade and it's only the utility bots (party, fixer, gardener and cleaner)

 

It's... frustrating... since you can't buy or clone mechanisms or computer chips.
