[GTW] "Return to Police Station" Task does not get completed

★★★ Novice

Hi everyone!

 

Very recently I've been having trouble with my Police Officer Sim. I arrive at the police station, complete some tasks here and there and then I eventually either send him on patrol, to a crime scene or on an APB.

 

Everything works perfectly fine on the scene, but when I'm done and want to return to the police station, the problems begin. I travel back to the police station and when I arrive I see that the task to "return to Police Station" doesn't get ticked off. I also don't get any other tasks so I can't really do anything anymore. I've tried travelling back and forth, but that didn't work. I've tried deleting CC en Mods and that didn't do anything either.

 

Any idea what could have caused this and how can I fix it?

 

Thanks!

Yeah, it's the same thing everyday.

Sounds very similar to this one: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4-Bug-Reports/GTW-Incorrect-suspect-traits-TO-ADD/td-p/4486122/ (except different task).

 

Are you ok with me merging your thread ?

I don't really think it's the same problem.

 

Anyway, the problem is getting worse, now the game doesn't even recognise a crime scene as a crime scene. So when I travel to the crime scene, the task 'Travel to Crime Scene' remains active meaning I can't complete any other task. Travelling back and forth doesn't do anything at all. All this means I can't progress in the Detective career which is really annoying.

Like quitting the job? No I've not tried that yet. I'll go and see if that works as soon as I am able. Thanks!

There's a bug on my detective sim that's left it stuck in one area for long as every time i click return to police station it never works, it just disappears from the list without doing anything, even when the work day ends nothing happens and i stay stuck in the area (library in willow creek)

@itua3000 Merged your post. Does the Sim leave when the shift is over ?

 

@MrMathy16 Did the suggestion help anything ?

Same thing here. No matter if I return to the police station by clicking on my sim or on the ground or whatever, when I finally get back to the police station the task for "Return to Police Station" is still listed as un-ticked and it is the only objective.

The only way to get past it is to make my sim muck around for the rest of their shift and then the next day at work the objectives are reset again.
