I sent you my save file on 4/11/2020. The DM subject is the same as this issue title with (Save five) at the end.

I observed something similar with other, random things (queued actions and tasks) and found briefly opening the build mode 'fixes' this.

Does opening the build mode for a second help here?

Having this same problem on the PS4. SIM is unable to  complete work from home assignments (dabble with circuit boards and test experimental components.) He recently graduated from university and just started this career.

Hi everyone,

 

I have the same issue as Dew30 but on PC. My sim just graduated from university and started his computer engineering career at level 8. I only had a problem with the dabble with circuits boards task for the moment. He would not continue the task to the end and just drop it in the middle, making it impossible to complete.

 

I tried MeltingPenguins solution (entering Build Mode) and it helped solve it once but I'm not sure this will fix it permanently.

 

I hope this can help though !

I just encountered this issue with my sim at level 9 of the Computer Engineer branch of the Engineering career. Practicing programming for any length of time would not complete the task.

 

There seems to be the wrong test type in the tuning file for the objective "objectives_engineer_common_PracticeProgramming".

 

 

  <T n="display_text">0x220A951E<!--Practice Programming--></T>
  <V n="objective_completion_type" t="iterations" />
  <V n="objective_test" t="ran_interaction_test">
    <U n="ran_interaction_test">
      <L n="affordances">
        <T>31232<!--computer_Programming_Practice--></T>
      </L>
      <V n="running_time" t="enabled">
        <T n="enabled">160</T>
      </V>
      <E n="test_event">InteractionUpdate</E>
    </U>
  </V>
  <T n="relative_to_unlock_moment">True</T>
  <T n="resettable">True</T>
  <T n="tooltip">0x159FCED7<!--Practice Programming at a Computer.--></T>

The objective completion type should be "use_test_result" instead of "iterations":

 

 

 

  <V n="objective_completion_type" t="use_test_result" />

Changing that single line of code allows the work from home task to complete as intended after practicing programming for 160 sim minutes (2h 40mins of sim time). I hope that helps you fix it.
