[NEEDS INPUT] [SD] New Age doesn't give Tranquil Music buff/ alleviate moodlets

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Listen to the New Age radio station
What happens when the bug occurs? No longer gives the Tranquil Music buff. Does not alleviate negative moodlets.
What do you expect to see? I expect it to work as it previously worked before the Tiny Living pack
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. Tiny Living update

Here is my original post on this: 


It was incorrectly marked as solved when in fact you all solved a problem that did not exist. It was always necessary to actively listen to the New Age station in order to benefit from it's effects. 


It's supposed to grant the Tranquil Music moodlet AND alleviate negative moodlets. 




It was really handy when DU came out and then you broke it. This was a Feature of Spa Day. Not a freebie. Anyone purchasing it now would not know this. 


The Seasons stations do seem to work now.

Re: New Age radio station still not working

★★★ Novice

Also seeing this on PC with (All packs except JB and SE).


Did not get the focused moodlet by clicking on a (turned off) audio device (Listen to > New Age) and leaving the sim to listen.


Managed to get the moodlet by Turn On > New Age followed by Listen to > Listen to New Age.

Also worked if the sim started the radio station by Listen to > New age then abandoned the action (wasn't getting the moodlet; radio stayed on) and afterwards started listening with Listen to > Listen to New Age.

Tried it in a new save with different audio players/radios.

Tried it with the winter station and had the same behavior: happy moodlet when tuning in, playful when the music was already playing


Whether the sim started listening to the station directly (turning it on) or started listening to what was already playing shouldn't make a difference (both active actions).
