@crinrict I have two freelancers who get the LE at job completion/submission. When I was told it was related to job performance level, I used UI Extensions to lower one of those sim's job performance from 100 to 0. Gig completed successfully. Raised performance back to 100, and got the LE. So I can make this bug. appear or disappear at will.

When this happened in my game, the final assignment that would normally have caused the excellent performance checkmark didn't complete/clear until the timer ran out - all the objectives were marked as complete, but no finalization. And even re-doing the objectives didn't help.

 

Once the time ran out, the performance meter was set back to Average. There is no way to max out Freelancing at the moment.

@JCDARKH0RSE @Requielle 

 

Do you guys get any last exceptions ? I think it's the same issue as this one: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-A-Sims-icon-still-at-work-after-promotion-after/m-...

 

Please attach them to your post if you get any. Either create a .rar file and upload or c/p the exception in spoiler tags. Thanks

Happy Gaming

@crinrict No last exceptions. All tasks are complete and ticked. The performance bar is full but the tick box where you would usually be ready for promotion do not exist and upon completion you just get paid and nothing else. The job will just sit there completed but won’t be removed unless you do it yourself and that then lowers your performance so you have to start it all again but every time you do its the same thing. And this is on all of the freelancer jobs. Before the recent patch my sim had no problem and would complete and receive the rewards and would begin to earn extra. But no its just bugged. I have tried removing localthumb, onlinecache etc and no luck. Tried to repaired and again no luck.

Maybe it's just the lack of caffeine talking here, but I'm not sure what "last exceptions" are - so not sure if I'm getting them. I read the linked thread, still not clear. I'm not greyed out or anything. And the game plays normally during the "stuck job" time otherwise, and plays on normally once the stuck job completes and resets the career (until it's time for final promotion and then it happens again).

 

I'm not getting it on a different career on a different Sim. I just got my level 10 promotion on a new Sim on the Military career path.

 

I can go back and see if I can get more information by playing the Freelancer again. Is there specific information that would be helpful? I didn't notice anything special other than the "all task boxes checked, but job doesn't complete until time is up" followed by "reset performance meter".

@Requielle They are files in your documents folder called LastException.txt (sometimes with numbers). Those are written by the game if it runs into an unhandled error.

Best is to delete all of them that you have now and then check if the game creates a new file after running into the issue.

Just had a new Sim work up the Freelance Artist career. Slightly different variation of the problem this time - the job tasks finished (Gig: Kick-started Catastrophe), the job itself did not auto-complete, and the performance meter reset to average immediately (instead of when job finished via timer).

 

Sim was paid when the timer ran out, and got a performance boost to his newly-average score.

 

A single lastException.txt file was generated when the bug initially manifested.
