Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Writing on computer not working properly

★★★★ Newbie

I only have the base game, and with yesterday's update, none of my sims can write.  I tried using all computers in the home, writing options, nothing works.  I tried buying a new computer and it worked the first time they started writing again, but the next time I wanted them to continue, I'm back to not being able write anything anymore.  My sim's a writer!! I suppose I'll have to change careers until this bug is fixed. Frustrating!!

@crinrict I've had my familiar summoned and not summoned, with the fix, and haven't had a problem yet.

I tested this with my spellcaster (vanilla game with all packs except DU) and had no problem to write or resume a book, on deskop PCs or laptops, on public and private lots. The only thing that prevents my Sim from writing is having a familiar summoned. In this case, the queue symbol is not the computer (as it should), but a book and the Sims keeps standing next to the PC. As soon as you free the familiar, the spellcaster immidiately starts to write.

 

I went quickly through this and the other writing thread (can't resume books). I noticed that while Simmers who filed a report were playing with almost every pack available, one EP was always missing: Get to Work. May be pure coincidence though ...

Hi everyone! I also encounter this issue with my mermaid Sim and another "normal" Sim. Selling and rebuying a computer worked at first but does not work anymore. I tried deleting the 2 mods I had and nothing changed...

I play 100% base game and since my sim is a writer I can guarantee this only started directly after the update and affects both him and his roommate. Sims are still able to practice writing, but I need to write finished books in order to do aspirations and advance in the career. other computer functions seem to be as normal.

I tried this fix on my game file yesterday. It worked yesterday but the issue has come back today with the same sim on the new computer.  I can practice writing but I can't get my sim to write in any genre.
