After some testing it seems that this could potentially be an issue of the Sim being resurrected.

Moving back to bugs.

Re: Fishing Aspiration doesn't count fishing time

Fishing multiple hours with my Alien Sim the game only showed one of ten hours towards the Angler Ace aspiration goal.
By chance I started a new save with another "human" Sim for another reason. She was able to complete this stage of the same aspiration without any issues.
Could this issue be attributed to occult Sims?

@EuphorialQueen Could be. The report so far have been for ghosts/resurrected Sims.

I have the problem with a normal Sim. After he became a student, no task at all is counting for the fishing aspiration.

 

EDIT: I changed to the gardening aspiration with the same Sim and that works.

I tested this further and no "legal" action keeps the fishing aspiration going once it's frozen - not ending university, moving to a new world, proceeding in a different aspiration etc.

 

The only way is cheating to level 2. Activate testingcheats on, then type:

 

aspirations.complete_current_milestone

 

After that, you can again fulfil the tasks.

I have the same issue with a normal sim, she never died, she's not a spellcaster,... she's just a woman-sim and a mother. That one is the only aspiration she has stuck at 6/10 so far. She can't count mounting or bowling fishes either.

This didn't happen in the past, when she was able to achieve level 6. Something strange happened to her while some add-on or patch. Unfortunately, I don't know which one.

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Fishing Aspiration doesn't count fishing time

Some of my (non-occult) Sims have the same problem with fishing, but with other time counters in aspirations too: working out and teaching music. It's impossible for some Sims to complete these aspirations. Because my style of gameplay is to make all my Sims ultimate (with all aspirations completed) I switch a lot between them and I think this causes this. It seems to occur when they already fished / worked out  /  teached music for some amount of time, before the counter in the aspiration gets activated.

@crinrict I don't know what "LE" is. I read the post and tried to figure it out, but I still don't get it. It seems to be about a mod? The only mod I use or ever used is the one that fixes the Eco pack issues.
