And for what it's worth, I have a household of two Freelancers, neither of them have traveled, and all the checks are being completed and completed on time, and they work in the Artist and Programmer fields respectively.


Thanks new patch!

@crinrict I also want to add - My Sim is a Freelance Fabricator and now when she completes a gig it will not closeout, and keeps saying "Chat with the client" so I have to cancel it and she loses performance.

Re: [OPEN] Freelancer: All task done - Gig not completed

I'm having the issue too, with a Writer and a Programmer. Got the fix listed above, and am about to test it out.


To be as helpful as I can, here first is the LE generated. It may also contain some information for the stereo bug, but it definitely has stuff from the freelancing bug.


And here is the save.

Freelance - Digital Artist Jobs not completing

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Freelance - Digital Artist gigs are not being recognized as "completed". The tasks are being checked off, but there is no "completion" or payout. I've tried 3 different kinds of gigs, as well as doing the tasks over and over hoping to trigger the completion, but nothing worked. The only option is to cancel the gig.


I also want to mention, I've tried repairing the game. The freelance job worked fine before the latest patch.

HEY!! Yes, this just started happening to me, First I thought it was Mods, so got rid of them, still happened, next a new game, still happened, Repaired Game, STILL HAPPENED! The Picture shows that Everything is Completed and Approved but its not going away and no payment.  This started happening for me after the 03/09/2020 Update... IMG_20200906_172807751.jpg
