[NEEDS INPUT] Joke Star Aspiration Not Recognizing Completed Comedy Routines

[ Edited ]
★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
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? 1.23.61.3400
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play game
What happens when the bug occurs? Aspiration Joke Star, step Funny Businessman(woman) does not recognize previously written comedy routines to complete "Write 3 Comedy Routines" task. Sims that have maxed out comedy routines previous to choosing the aspiration are blocked from completing the aspiration. Previous EA forum reports of bug being fixed are inaccurate.
What do you expect to see? When Sim maxes out number of routines written and cannot write more, if unfulfilled aspiration Joke Star is chosen, aspiration does not show "Write 3 Comedy Routines" as being complete.
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 

Despite forum posts to the contrary dated from 2015-2017, the Joke Star aspiration does not recognize previous completion of comedy routines. When Sim has maxed out number of comedy routines able to be written, the aspiration becomes impossible to complete. 

 

There is no option available to scrap previously completed comedy routines to clear the queue.

  • Milestone 3: Funny Businessman - Write 3 comedy routines: Since the amount of comedy routines you can write is limited, routines written before the level should count.

 

Perhaps I'm reading this wrong, but the thread seems to intimate that previously written routines should now count.

@GameHoundsEdie No, that wasn't fixed. The thread was archived because QA now needs threads for every issue separately. No one ever made a new thread for it though.

So thanks for making a new one but I now know why I was confused. I had a vague memory of this being reported but not that it had been fixed.

No problem. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

 

Yeah, pretty much right now this aspiration is unachievable if you've previously maxed out your comedy routines. Tried a number of solves, including erasing the routines and refining routines. Refining removes them from your refinement list (though you can see them when performing them).

Whole thing is locked up until a "scrap routine" option is created, the number of routines available becomes unlimited, or the achievement begins to recognize routines previously created.
