[FIXED] [GF] Actor Prep Tasks reset on traveling

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Take an acting gig, complete one of the Prep Tasks. Travel to another location.
What happens when the bug occurs? Upon changing locations, completed prep tasks are no longer complete.
What do you expect to see? Completed prep tasks remain completed.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. 12/12/19 update to 1.59.73.1020

Bug may be more widespread than just limited to Acting prep tasks. Entire acting career appears to be COMPLETELY borked. Have not tested with other careers yet. Completed prep tasks will no longer remain completed if traveling to another location.

 

Traveled to another location and task was no longer completed. In fact, my entire job panel was empty, like I wasn't even in a career. Tried re-joining the acting career but it wasn't listed. (Still in the career?) Cancelled the gig using the phone and the career panel re-appeared. Attempted to take another gig. Tried 4 out of the 7 available gigs, 3 of them wouldn't do anything. One did. Completed 1 of the 3 prep tasks and then traveled to another location, the one completed task was no longer completed.

 

Acting career no longer viable.

 

Other bug appears to be a corruption of that single sim. Prep task bug still a major issue.

Actor prep tasks will no longer reset on traveling.
- This is the second travel issue in the game… was it trying to tell us something?

 


Fixed in Patch 1.62.67

@Psychotps Which agency are you with ? Does that make a difference ? I can duplicate the prep task resetting but my career seems fine (quick test)

@crinrict Was with the "Well suited" one. Will try changing.

But if the tasks get reset, the career is no longer usable because you are required to change lots when going to the gig, and once you change lots, you lose your progress.

Still busy with other stuff.

@crinrictTried all four agencies. Tried different gigs, different Prep tasks, travelling to different cities, different neighborhoods, different lot types...

If you complete a prep task and travel, the task will no longer be completed.

The Acting career is no longer able to be completed.

Will now try out other careers.

 

Edit 1: Work from home assignments in Conservationist career appears to be working fine.

Edit 2: Tried several other careers. Daily tasks, promotion tasks, work from home tasks appear to all be fine.  Looks like only Acting career is broken.

@crinrictPsychotps I am having the same problem in my game. It makes it impossible to get gold on an acting gig. It was working for me perfectly fine yesterday and only seems to be broken since the patch.

I got the exact issue after the same patch. Hopefully it gets fixed soon, super frustrating how fixes ironically cause more bugs and issues to appear.
