[NEEDS INPUT] Troll the forum doesn't count for work on slablet

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

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? 1.15
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Together, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get to Work, Jungle Adventure, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Toddler Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Cool Kitchen Stuff, Kids Stuff, Laundry Day Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim use the Slablet for work interaction. In this case it was "Troll teh Forums" for mischief.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim using The Slablet to do mischief interactions doesn't get work credit for doing them in the work tab.
What do you expect to see? The Slablet function like the PC interactions and be able to get credit for work.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

My Villain Sim was Trolling Teh Forums on the Slablet and was not able to gain credit towards Mischief interactions even though he was clearly being Mischievous on the Slablet.

@PoptartJuniper Was that the only interaction or is it a general issue ?

@crinrict That was the only objective I saw. I didn't try it for other objectives as that sim is the only one that was employed. I didn't want to make the title crazy long.

The tablet version of the Troll Forum interaction is missing the career performance benefit loot for the Secret Agent Villain career.

 

This is the part of the tuning file for the Troll Forum action on a computer:

 

          <U n="operation_actions">
            <L n="actions">
              <T>76171<!--Loot_Commodity_CareerBenefit_Criminal_Main--></T>
              <T>104297<!--loot_Commodity_Fireleaf_ElixirOfBurning--></T>
              <T>110870<!--loot_Commodity_CareerBenefit_Agent_Villain_Small--></T>
            </L>
          </U>

But on the tablet version, the same part of the tuning file is missing the line for a Secret Agent Villain:

 

          <U n="operation_actions">
            <L n="actions">
              <T>76171<!--Loot_Commodity_CareerBenefit_Criminal_Main--></T>
              <T>104297<!--loot_Commodity_Fireleaf_ElixirOfBurning--></T>
            </L>
          </U>

So that's why the tablet version is failing to work for completing the daily work task for a Secret Agent in the villain career branch. Hopefully it can be fixed to work the same as it does on a computer.

Can confirm that "Troll teh Forums" on slablet does not work to fulfill mischief work task for Secret Agent - Villian. It does fulfill for Criminal career mischief work tasks.

@crinrictPoptartJuniper It's been like that (for me) for as long as I can remember. The "positive" I get out of this is that trolling the forums on the slablet doesn't affect my younger sims' empathy. :D
