[NEEDS SAVES] [ECO] Fizzing Station: Start Fizzing missing if not enough funds

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Eco Lifestyle Island Living Seasons Free holiday pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try 'Start Fizzing' on a juice machine on a community lot.
What happens when the bug occurs? There is no 'Start Fizzing' interaction on a juice machine after loading ingredients on a community lot. There is only the 'Retrieve Ingredients' interaction.
What do you expect to see? The 'Start Fizzing' interaction.
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? No

I load my ingredients into the juice machine on a community lot (tested with no mods/CC, different numbers of ingredients, different types of ingredients and on all 4 types of community lot). Once the ingredients are loaded, I click on the machine, but the only option available is to 'Retrieve Ingredients'. I can use the fizzing machine fine on my home lot.

I don't know if this will help, but I've seen LP Simmers not be able to Fizz because they didn't have enough funds. And sometimes the Sim couldn't fizz because they were too uncomfortable--hygiene, hunger, exhaustion etc. I've been able to fizz every time, but sometimes the machine gets stuck and says not ready for 2-3 game days. So that's fun.

@Aelynsims I'm not having issues with either. Does it matter what ingredients you load ? Have you tried repairing your game through Origin ?

What happens when the bug occurs? No fizzing
What do you expect to see? Fizzing of juice...my poor rags to riches sim is going to die Frown

The juice fizzer lets me fizz a batch or 2 absolutely fine and then I go to load ingredients (which is fine) and then the option to "Start Fizzing" is gone and the only option is "retrieve ingredients".  I've tried replacing the fizzer, and the same thing happens.  I tried using the one in the Maker Space, and the same thing happens.

Ooh, I think that's exactly what it was! Because I have got a bit more money now and I can use the juice fizzer like normal. Thank you so much for mentioning this!
