Same thing for me too unfortunately. I just started playing with the actor before the patch. I even tried cheating the bar with the UI Cheats mod but still no result. The frustrating part is my game is more bugged now than before the update. I got the shower bug, the random three time speed bug, the sims resetting and cancelling actions. 

 

@YuleNorwood The annoying part is that now we probably have to wait until after the holiday period to get some new bug fixes. It's ridiculous that in trying to fix the freelancer career they bugged so many more things now.

@iamelenha I have enough friends in that line of work to know that's the way it is, especially in complex monsters like The Sims: one thing gets fixed, another breaks. So I'm not actually surprised that at every new patch something goes haywire. What really bugs me (see what I did there?) is that bugs can range from mildly annoying to game breaking, if you go check the report list in this forum you'll see what I mean. No offence to the people who filed some of them, but some bug reports left me positively wheezing (my favourite atm is the "woo-hooing in a blazing pile of leaves")(oh GAWD please devs don't fix that). Since the last patch I have at least two of those pesky little new bugs: combo shower not working, fertiliser not fertilising (not the fiery woo-hooing, tho)(dammit), and you know what? I can live with those. But the game breaking type of bugs shouldn't be allowed to go live, like never ever EVER. Or at least not every single bloody time a patch shows up.This Prep Tasks resetting business is destroying the Acting Career for the players, and is strongly penalising the GF expansion altogether. Worse of all, this bug cannot be worked around in any way, the Acting Career is simply not playable, period. And yes, I don't see how this is gonna get fixed before 2020. Merry frickin' Christmas.

It  doesn't  even  have to be the actor who is traveling to  cause the tasks to reset. I had my  actor finish practicing  the playful emotion, then I was controlling my actor's son at the gym, and had my actor working on his charisma  skill. He finished, son comes home - suddenly  neither task is finished anymore.   

The career itself seems to be fine. Every Extras Agency.

same issue here. also noticed that preps wich should be checked bc you are level 10 on the skill dont get checked and the aspiration (idk the english name its the aspiration where you dont lose fame if you complete it) get reset. i bought something for 1 fame point but the task got unchecked. idk when exactly. i noticed it after loading the game a few seconds ago

Prep Tasks reset after traveling

★★ Newbie

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? 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get To Work, Get Together, City Living, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, Get Famous, Spa Day, Vampires, Parenthood, Realm of Magic, Laundry Day, Backyard, Perfect Patio, Holiday Celebration, and Grim's Ghoulish Guitar
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a sim in the acting career do their prep tasks and then travel to a different lot/go with them to their job.
What happens when the bug occurs? The completed prep tasks show up as incomplete and risky acting interactions fail.
What do you expect to see? One would expect the tasks to remain completed upon leaving their house.
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 

It's really frustrating, because most of the time you're not even able to complete all of the tasks during the work day. Thanks for the help!

Same here. All agencies. I just bought the pack and thought it wasn't fair or possible to have to do the prep work while at the job site in the amount of time given. I'd already wasted time completing them only to have them reset when I got to the job site. Now I see it is a bug and not intended to work that way. I hope this is fixed soon!

I wonder, are the task stats reset/removed or just not recognized by the game after traveling?
