Is there any update on this issue? It's been more than a month since we've heard anything, and the most recent patch didn't resolve it (at least for me).
The 'Shrewd' trait doesn't work if you leave the house lot (the sim can go to his/hers job, but you can't join him either). Otherwise it seems like the timer for the 7 days resets every time you leave the house lot.
I got 2 or 3 times when the trait activated and got the 5% interest on the money, but so many weeks passed without me getting any money.
This still seems like a bug to me and hope it gets fixed...
I understand it was a small update and it may not have been on the manifest but "Shrewd" still isn't working after the "October 3rd update" ... for me at least, happy if it is working for others.
It used to be that when playing with other households I'd get messages from the household with a Shrewd-traited Sim.
Now when I started playing again recently this stopped happening, I was glad at first, thinking they fixed getting messages from other households but now found out the whole thing just doesn't work anymore.
It's like stuff gets broken at a faster pace than they can fix it.
This still appears to be bugged. Seems like the patches have done a number on this game. I've been encountering numerous bugs that never used to be an issue. I completed the fabulously wealthy aspiration and my sim never received the benefit. It seems they are more worried about producing new content then maintaining the original.
Sims with the Shrewd reward trait weren’t as shrewd as they thought they were. We have restored their shrewd’ness and they should now actually receive the money they so rightfully shrewded away at the end of each week.
○ We blame it on bad investments, the cd market apparently didn’t mean compact discs
Fixed in Patch 1.59.73
