I'm having this issue too. Please fix this ASAP. I need my sim kids to be able to learn adult skills. 

 

@crinrict Any update on a fix??? This makes the game unplayable for my method of playing.

I set all the child skills to 9 from the get go to see what would happen when they maxed out. One was practicing piano when they maxed creativity. They didn't immediately start gaining skill in piano, but after stopping and starting practice again, they were. But same sim after finishing the Creative aspiration before starting violin could not gain the violin skill.

 

Anyone know if a mod has come out to address this pending an EA fix?

@DarkAudit
I have just found a mod on Mod the Sims that enhances the child skills so hopefully overcomes this issue - fingers crossed. I have just downloaded it myself and haven't tested it yet. It's here:

I have found that in my game, I am not able to compensate for the lost skill time with the cheat 'stats.set_skill_level major_'. For example, if a child has practiced the piano (after he's maxed out the childhood creative skill) for ten hours (with a mentor), the game does not allow me to cheat the piano skill (not even for one skill point). It's a bit of a bummer. I'm avoiding playing households with children for fear of 'corrupting' the lot.

 

By the way, I have not installed Eco Lifestyle. This started with the last two patches (which I loaded together in one update)

@collette-m539 Did you gain adult skill with the child ? The child skill don't carry over.

What kinds of books do you not see ? Is that the same Sim that has issues with books ?
