  • Actors, Decorators, and Freelancers all… Sims in Gig-based careers once again can accept Gigs from the Career panel to earn those precious Simoleons. Make it werrrrk!


Fixed in Patch 1.77.146/1.45

If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.

Please describe the patch or change you made. Sims 4 Update 7/20/21

I was playing this morning (with CC) and no bugs were occurring. After I installed the new update I was playing around with the pond tool in build mode without CC enabled. I turn CC back on (no script mods, only CAS and build items) and the bug began occurring. I turn CC off again, exit the game, enter the game and load back into my save and the bug persists. I don't know much about CC or bugs in The Sims, but if this isn't caused by CC I hope it was of help to report it.

Please describe the patch or change you made. The brand new patch that is right before the Cottage Living pack release.

I tried to have my sim get a new gig and it won't let me. I tried restarting my game and my computer but that didn't work. Then I googled if anyone else had this issue. But since it's a new patch I couldn't find anyone else having this problem. I removed all my old mods but nothing worked. Anyone else having this problem.

@Bean2018 Please keep in mind everybody that you can still select gigs with the telephone. So this bug is just a minor annoyance.

I also have this issue. I can get a gig by using the phone, but the normal clickable icon in the work panel is not clickable since the update July 20th.

Just chiming in to say, me too. This happened to me. The "check for gigs" in the phone works, but not on the career tab.

@pearlbh Thanks for sharing the workaround to use the phone - I hadn't thought of that, but it works great. :-)
