[SE] Go to work on off hours not boosting performance/pay/removing moodlet

[ Edited ]
★★★ Apprentice

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? PC: 1.70.84.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All the packs except vampires, realm of magic, eco lifestyle, Star Wars, and paranormal.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim with the Workaholic lifestyle. Have the sim gain the work withdrawal moodlet. Send sim to work during off hours.
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim goes to work during off hours, but there is no work performance gain, additional pay, and the work withdrawal moodlet doesn’t go away.
What do you expect to see? My sim should improve their work performance if they go to work during off hours, the work withdrawal moodlet should go away, and my sim should get paid for going to work.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

Going to work during off hours does nothing for my sim. It’s only purpose right now is for story telling. It should affect the game more than that.

@ArcherAngelo merged this with the other issue on the workaholic moodlet. Nick is looking for saves for this one. Could you send yours as per this post: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-SAVES-SE-Workaholic-moodlet-constantly-stuck-Lifestyle/m... ?

@Jes2244 So many of my Sims become Workaholics and because of this they are almost always tense because they aren't always at work. They also stay tense even by going to work off hours.

Getting this as well with my sim who just left university. She apparently acquired the lifestyle from always going to her e-sports meetings and as soon as she was removed from the team due to graduating, she constantly had the tense moodlet. So I sent her to the lifestyle coach to remove the trait. She's got a job now and no more workaholic lifestyle but still keeps getting that stupid +5 tense that prevents her from livestreaming for work, ironically!

Same here. The remove-negative-moodlets-reward potion brings relief for some days.

@SakiHarashi My sim is a SCIENTIST and even though he went to a lifecoach and had the lifestyle removed, he STILL gets the tense moodlet and can't do anything. It's super annoying. I wish a modder would make a fix.

To be more exact, in Cody's Sim information at the bottom right of the screen, when I look at his lifestyles, workaholic and techie don't appear, but when I click and OPEN the lifestyle screen, it shows they are still active. How is that possible? I hope this helps get the problem fixed!

 

To be even MORE precise, after I realized the moodlets were interfering with my Alien Baby challenge, I had him go to a lifestyle coach to remove them, but again, you can see the results (all the ss are post the appt).
