[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

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? 1.70.84.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Paranormal and Star Wars
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Notification pops up whenever my sim interacts with a NPC sim.
What happens when the bug occurs? The notification that my sim has identified a fish even though my sim does not have the fishing skill.
What do you expect to see? This should not be popping up because it was supposed to have been fixed in patch PC 1.69.57.1020 and Mac 1.69.57.1220
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 

1.PNGI am not sure if this issue is after the most recent patch or not. Usually my sims will have the fishing skill, however, this particular sim does not have it has happened each time she has interacted with an NPC sim.

Fishing identification still an issue

★★ Guide

The identifying fish without the fishing skill is still an issue. This was supposed to have been fixed with the patch PC:1.69.57.1020 / Mac: 1.69.57.1220. It’s not. Anyone else still having this problem?

@candiecoatediv Hi!  I haven't noticed this coming up in my game very much for some time.  I do remember when it was popping up much more frequently.  Every now and then, I see it as a random conversational interaction and it seems to occur more often when I have multiple played households / sims at the same location.

 

Edit: When I wrote this, I was not seeing the notifications.  Now it is happening again much more frequently.

@JonaO703  As far as I understood it should not happen if the sim does not have the fishing skill. I’m playing a new save with one sim and it came up. I’ve had it come up previously but did not pay attention to it as those sims have the fishing skill.

@candiecoatediv Create a new bug report then. There is one for NPCs but afair, there's no new one for the active Sims with no skill.

Re: Fishing Identification Still an Issue after Patch Fix

My sims get that notification randomly, when they have not been fishing at all.

 

Its quite annoying.

Just putting for reference.

If you get messages for NPCs (and not your active Sims), please use this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Fish-and-Fabrication-Recipes-Notifications-For/td-...
