Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Bot Enhancement Bug not working (Patch 1.60.54)

★★★★ Guide

@crinrict I rolled back my save since my sim can only upgrade 1 of 4 bots he has on his lot (even though he's maxed his robotics skill, so possibly that's a different issue Standard smile ). 

 

1) I had my sim choose the option 'Work on Utili Bot' and then chose the only one I knew could be upgraded; I also knew that my sim enough components to do the upgrade. 

 

2) My sim grabbed the bot and placed it on the work station and that was it, ie that interaction doesn't appear to actually start the enhancement, it only places it on the workstation.

 

3) I did then have the sim choose the option to enhance the bot (gardener bot) and he was able to enhance it to level 4, though I don't see an option to enhance it beyond that. (that also counted towards the Bot Savants goal which I've had problems meeting in the past even when I've done upgrades).

 

So I would think the work around is to just choose the option to enhance once the bot is on the workstation, assuming the option is there (which it isn't for most of mine even though the bots are only level 3).

 

Best regards,
Jennifer

@crinrict I'm facing this issue as well in the sense that I can't enhance my Servo or check its enhancement progress. The action menu is there but nothing happens when I click on it. No CC except for outfits.

@friscohershey Does it matter which robot ? Did you enhance them before ?

Merged with another thread on this although there seem to different issues: No option, option not doing anything.

It happens with all my bots. I haven't been able to enhance any bots with any sims/save because the option has never been available.

I have the same issue.  I am not using any mods/cc.  I have 3 sims in the family with the robotics skill maxed, and not one of them can upgrade the bot (gardening).  I was able to upgrade it to lvl 6, but since then I cannot make any upgrades.  If need be I can PM you the saved file (Where is the PM function on the site?)

 

UPDATE:  I made sure that I had double the needed amount of all items and that seems to work.  Also, the amounts needed increase after six, so make sure you have loads of parts in your inventory.
