Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.58.69.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all except pet stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Use Research Machine (I mostly use it for Research skill, idk if that matters).
What happens when the bug occurs? Every Sim I've had use the research machine will periodically have a scientific breakthrough for one of the scientist career inventions despite not being in the scientist career. It's weird...?
What do you expect to see? Not having breakthroughs for a career they're not in.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. DU

Every Sim I've had use the research machine will periodically have a scientific breakthrough for one of the scientist career inventions despite not being in the scientist career. It's weird...?

 

Unless studying Research is supposed to cause non-scientists to discover how to make satellite dishes and stuff, idk why this keeps happening.
