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? 1.75.125.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the interior designer career past a certain point (?)
What happens when the bug occurs? The reveal slideshows have stopped during the reveal event.
What do you expect to see? The same slideshow from earlier in the career
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.

Reveal slideshow has stopped happening. I still choose the before and after photos and the rest of the event will play out. This is a brand new save for testing. Sim has level 10 photography at this point, and is at level 5 of the career.

That is correct. But only in this save file. If you look at my other posts, you will see that in the legacy save file, the reveal event doesn't happen at all.

@tilia2 Yeah, just noticed you're OP for the other thread as well. Just trying to keep separate :D

Could you send me your save for this issue ?

For me, this turned out to be a custom career that changed degree rewards (jumped levels if you had a certain degree). It could also be a custom degree, according to a modder who had to fix their own mod.

Dream home decorator Gig Reveal videos don't play

★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
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? Latest from Origin 19.6.2021 (don't know where the version number is located)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? City Living, Snowy Escape, Get Famous, Seasons, University, Dream home decorated, Tiny living,Dine out, Outdoor retreat, Holiday celebration, Digital deluxe
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Complete home decorator career gig: take before photos, redecorate in build mode, take after photos, call clients to lot, choose to reveal yourself as a player, create slideshow of before&after photos. When clients arrive, select 'Reveal' clicking on client sim.
What happens when the bug occurs? The clients come to the door. Some times the before&after video does not play at any point and clients just go inside and you can show off objects and ask clients opinion. Sometimes the game just skips all reveal steps (before&after video, showing off apartment and getting verdicts( after clients come to the door and then the gig is automatically finished.
What do you expect to see? I expect that every time I reveal client the new decorations: clients come to door, they're led to the room eyes closed, before&after video plays, I get to show of objects and ask verdict. The reveal video does not get skipped.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

This was not issue at the beginning of the career or did not happen to me at first for some reason. Many times the reveal process went through just fine as expected with all the steps. Now the reveal video is skipped every time, even after quitting and saving, after shutting down Origin too. I have not updated the game (there's no new update) in-between the correct behaviour and the buggy behaviour, so it's the same game version where it worked first and does not work anymore.
