Re: Social event with empty goals

★★★ Newbie

Happens to me all the time on PlayStation 4. Mostly during seasons events, but still happens when there is no other holiday or event going on, so I have to do my best to guess what the goals would be. Very annoying.

@briibeatdown Can you also not turn on the goal events ?

Sul Sul @NWOKONKEMAYOMIDE!

Thanks so much for taking the time to bring this to our attention! Standard smile

I tried to reproduce this issue on my own console but did not see this happening so far.

To get a better understanding of what the root cause for this could be, could you let me know which button it is that you're pressing when trying to add goals to social events?
Apparently the [SQUARE] PlayStation button should toggle goals on/off, and with goals toggled on, you should also see them popping up at the top of your screen once the event started.
(Also, the description of each event type will get a line added to the top informing you about the challenge reward that you could get when closing off the event and its goals successfully.)

Let me know if that worked for you! Standard smile
If this does not resolve the issue for you though, a video clip would be very helpful for further investigation.

Thanks again and Happy Simming! Party hat

@eidroJ  What types of events are you trying to plan? The Seasons holiday event override any other planned events.
For example going on a date or planning a party. When there is an active holiday any social event on the same day will not show the goals for that event.

When planning an event like a dinner party or wedding the option for a Goaled Event must be checked.


To verify it looks like you are now playing on PS4 correct?
You also mention your PC never had issues. My impression is you are comparing previous experience on PC to current experience on PS4.  Troubleshooting is different so it would be good to confirm which system is involved.
PS4 recommendation is to completely turn off the console.
Unplug it from the power source and wait a few minutes.
Then turn it back on and see if the problem still exists.

@crinrict I had the same issue. Apparently you tick the box to make it a goaled event by pressing SQUARE when you have the desired event highlighted. That made the green check mark appear.
