Sep,12,2019 Freelance Career Bugs Still

★★★★ Novice

So I started the Freelance career as and nothing would check off as complete even though I did my task. So I deleted some mods some traits and aspirations I had and went back into the game and the freelance career started to work properly. I was able to encrypt 2 out of 5 files and then it stopped checking off after that. I repaired my game, cleared cache etc. removed mods

and did research on other things to try but nothing is working. This seem like a really good career but I cannot complete the job in time because of whatever bugs is going on. Please help.

@SimDiva1 It's unfortunately a known issue if you go traveling when the task is open.

Solution: So I took all cc out and I tried career again. (Freelancer Programmer)

This time I noticed that a messaged popped up for My sim saying:

(Oh no, something went wrong with the encryption! The file got corrupted and can't be opened at all anymore. Luckily, you were able to revert it back to the original. Please try again.)

 

So I had my sim try it again and it checked off. So apparently when we encrypt a file there is a 50 50 chance that it will be either successful or not. If it is not successful then our sims should keep trying until it checks off I believe. So i added my cc back in and tried it again and it WORKED WITHOUT A HITCH. For the first time she completed the entire job without any problems.

@crinrictLeslieMusimenta I'm having a similar issue. My first task got checked off ( Take a photo of sims in swim wear) but my other two tasks aren't being checked off even after I've gotten the notification that my photo has been approved and posted the photo to fashion instagram.

We've had trouble reproducing this issue, could anyone possibly share a save file with me? Thanks so much!

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Freelancer: Tasks not getting checked

★★ Guide

@SimGuruNick

  

Here is link to my save file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsZLFY7em2gr3j8frVAU57GkXPl4?e=iVeFTt  File name is dolldrms1FreelancerNoTaskCheck.rar I have included the .save file and the Ver0 file as well, since I think you'll have to roll back to it to see the issue.

 

When you load the .save go to Claire Charming hh in Brindleton Bay. She will be at Quad Manor library in Windenburg. I had her paint the portrait at home on the sketchpad and travel to the library to study the reference images. She did the study and the task did not complete. However, if you simply have her do it again, it will be checked off because I had saved and exited the game after the task wouldn't complete after traveling to the library and she won't have traveled when you first load her.

 

If you roll back to the Ver0, you may be in the Jolina hh so just travel to Charming in Brindleton Bay. Save and exit as I did after doing so. When you reload, to follow same steps I did, paint portrait at home, travel to library to study images = task won't check off as completed. If you then save and completely exit the game, reload and tell her to do it again, task will check off.

 

There is also a last exception file included in the .rar. I have no idea why it generated. Before I had her travel to the library she hadn't left her lot but a random, unknown sim had just walked into the hh, looked like to scold my sim's dog. I couldn't get an option to appear to ask her to leave after an introduction so I ended up just traveling to the library leaving the sim in the house. Perhaps that's why the LE? Don't know, it looks like an LE I've seen several times since installing the 1.55 patch and I have no clue why it's occurring.
