@guarinao Could you please edit this to be about the GTW careers only ?

Thread for actor is here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-GF-Acting-Career-Sim-not-getting-gig-pop-up/td-p/89...

As the careers work a bit different, it's best to have one thread for GTW careers and one thread for Actor

 

EDIT

I tested my doctor and my science Sim and had no issues going to work even when reloading/Travelling.

 

Could you guys that have this give more details ?

@crinrict So, in this save i have several families (as usual), after playing with my actress for some time she wouldn't go to her gigs anymore, after reading the other thread i believe this is due to the celebrity perk that allows us to skip auditions. But, right after this bug started i tried to play with my Doctor and my Detective and, surprise, I couldn't follow them to their workplaces, as for the detective, there wasn't even the "1 hour pop-up" for her. They would go to work only after clicking the "go to work" button.

@guarinao Can you send me your save ? Upload go google or onedrive and PM me the link.

I would like to use only the other thread for the actor career and this one for the GTW ones, so if you could edit your first post, that'd be great.

The actor issues is related to travelling/reloading your save while the gig is active. It has nothing to do with the perk.

So, i have tried the "no travel" thing and, apparently, it worked!

 

If i don't leave the lot with them , the GTW works normally.

@guarinao For me I couldn't even duplicate the travelling for the GTW careers. Since I tested another save than I have my actors on, it would be interesting to see if that makes a difference.

As I personally don't play rotationally, a save with that Constellation would be interesting to look at.

@guarinao I don't know. I'm doing a full scientist playthrough. The Acting bug is very consistent. I played Scientist for over a week and the first full week my sim never got the option to go to work. Kept clicking "Go to work" and the rabbit-hole worked fine. The last three work days it's worked fine and allowed me to join. Can't figure it out so far.

@Psychotps Is that the same save as the actor or a different one ?
