[NEEDS INPUT] Instant Upgrade Does Nothing For Talking John/Potty Mouth 2.0

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.48.94.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All EP, All GP, Laundry Day Stuff, Toddler Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Kids Room Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Spooky Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a Sim with the Handy trait use the Instant Upgrade option to upgrade a Talking John or Potty Mouth 2.0 toilet from City Living.
What happens when the bug occurs? The Instant Upgrade doesn't apply any upgrades at all to either of the talking toilets.
What do you expect to see? To have all the upgrades applied instantly, like Instant Upgrade is supposed to do.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Instant Upgrade doesn't do anything when using it to upgrade the talking toilets from City Living.

The action completes, and disappears from the upgrade menu, but doesn't actually apply any upgrades to the toilets.

 

The Instant Upgrade option in the interaction menu:

01-03-19_3-23-12 AM.png

 

Performing the Instant Upgrade:

01-03-19_3-23-21 AM.png

 

Instant Upgrade complete without any of the upgrades actually being applied:

01-03-19_3-23-35 AM.png

 

This happens with both the Talking John and the Potty Mouth 2.0 talking toilets.

Same here. I've been having this issue ever since I got City Living expansion and it seems to be occurring still in the latest patch. However having sims manually applying the upgrades works as normal, with or without instant upgrades prior to manual upgrades.

No worries.

The list is sorted by packs so it's often easier to just check the pack lists if it's about a pack

I mostly use CTL-F to search on the page. Found this one by searching for instant on the page (but I knew that it had been reported before so it was a bit easier for me to find :D)

 That upgrade has not worked since City Living, was released. It used to remove any manual upgrades as well. I have been upgrading one with the instant upgrade every time a new pack is released but have yet to see the upgrade work.
