Re: [OPEN] [GTW] Chemistry Lab broken

Hero

I've tested this in my own game now and it seems only Sims that were in the science career during patching of the game.

 

I newly (or again) put mine in the career and the problem does not occur.

after new patch FutureSims Lab equipment does not work

★★★★★ Novice

Loaded my game today, the patch installed (MAC OS X), went to work with my scientist and he can no longer use the chemistry lab or analyzer. All he can do is tinker or experiment. It worked fine before this latest patch. They don't even work at his home. I deleted the chemistry lab and bought a new one, but he still can't use it. Please fix this.

The chemistry lab in TS4

★★★★ Novice

I have the same problem as everyone else, since the patch on march 22:nd making serums on the Chemistry Lab doesn't work. I have no cc/mods installed. I played the game before and after I installed the patch and that's definitely the problem. I have tried repairing the game and resetting my Sims 4 folder. Nothing works Frown

He already was level 10 in the scientist career before the patch. Do you think I should change his career and then put him back in it?

Thanks Crinrict! I'll go back in and have him quit and rejoin the science career. Yes I'll give you props if it works. Standard smile

I can't mix serums anymore :-(

★★★★ Novice
I have earlier been able to mix serums with my scientist, bur when i now try to use the Chemistry Lab i only get the options "Experiment", "Tinker" and "Push Big Red Button" no "Synthesize Serum" :-(
And I very much wish to make serums, so i hope, you can help me?
(I have plenty of the ingredients for the serums, so that is not the reason for my problem).

My scientist have been promoted to UFOLOGIST, i don't know, if my problem have anything to do with that, but i di still get Work Tasks about making and using serums, so i guess, it is some kind of bug, there is reason for my problem.
