The sim who has the issue in my game has indeed licensensed songs.
I have since tried with her children (teens) and they are both able to complete the aspiration. They were also both played before ROM (they were toddlers then) and both earned the top notch toddler trait. Neither of them have licensensed songs. So they comply with the theory.
This was happening to me too. Not specifically the spellcaster aspiration but any aspiration. However when I would close the game and reopen it everything would be completed accordingly. So I wasn't too worried about it.
Could someone who has experienced this issue possibly share a save file? Thanks for the help!
@SimGuruNick Here are links to a couple of save files that I've experienced this issue on, though I have experienced it on more than these (many of my sims tend to license music). In the one with two sims in the household (currently active household), both have licensed music so the learn a spell/learn a potion isn't counting for either. In the save with the three sims in the currently active household, the female has licensed music and the learn a spell/learn a potion didn't work for her. It worked for the two males, but neither has licensed any music.
