My non freelance maker gets calls reminding them to take another gig; in this case the sim getting the reminder is a toddler & this call came right after his mom completed a gig (his grandmother is also a freelance maker, but neither the mom nor grandmother got the call)

 Image may contain: text

Here's the screenshot that came up after this (I can't recall if I said 'OK' or 'Cancel', I'm guessing I hit 'OK' but you can clearly see that the person getting the call was a toddler Standard smile ): 

Image may contain: 1 person

 

I have got this in another save, but I think that time the sim getting the call was a teen and it was his young adult sister who was the freelance maker.  I'm not sure if I've ever noticed it with other freelance careers. Also I have not had mods in my game for months, have never used custom content, I regularly repair my game & delete my localthumbcache file every time I play.

 

Best regards,
Jennifer

@MapleSimmer Going to mark this as Eco Maker career issue for now until someone says it's also happening for other freelancer.

I think there would have been reports if that was the case.

I have had a number of sims who are not in the Freelancer career get these calls.  It seems that they don't discriminate on age either as I have had them come in for sims of all ages.  Toddlers, children and teens too plus older sims.

I have even had these calls come for the dog and cat!  Every night/morning, at 4am, someone gets this popup.  Nobody is in that career, doesn't matter if they're old enough to have a job, apparently doesn't matter if they're even human!

I’m having this issue, too, but I don’t have any sims in the freelance maker career. Just like the other posts said, my toddler also received a call regarding taking a job. This constant phone call to everyone in my households started after I downloaded Eco Lifestyle.

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansion packs, all game packs, and most stuff packs excluding Nifty Knitting, Moschino, Backyard, Kids Room, Cool Kitchen, Perfect Patio, and Luxury Party.

What do you expect to see? Only Sims active in the Freelance Maker career getting gig calls
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. Bought Eco Lifestyle

Since I bought Eco Lifestyle, my played/household Sims across 4 different save files have been getting Freelance Crafter gig calls from the SIMply Crafted job agency. None of my played Sims in any of these saves have ever been in that career, and the calls come to not just adults, but toddlers/babies and even pets. 

 

Hi Laura Jane, it's your job agency calling... Just a friendly reminder that there are plenty of gigs available to work on if you're interested in earning some money. No pressure!

 

Because these Sims are not in the Freelance Crafter career, they do not have the option to select any of the gigs that pop up when I click "OK" - they are all grayed out. 

 

 

I regularly repair my game and delete my localthumbcache. Normally I play with mods but I've tried it without any mods and the calls still come in.

@MapleSimmer Yes! This happens to me all the freaking time! Every night when my sims go to bed I get like 3 or 4 notifications IN A ROW asking my sims of all ages to get an eco freelancer gig when I’ve never had a sim that joined that career. This needs to be fixed! I’m so annoyed of constantly clicking “cancel”!
