Re: Arrest bug- career interactions not even available on suspect

★★ Novice

Was able to lift the glitch by quitting and re-entering my career. Mind you I don't use cheats, so I may not have been looking in the wrong place but the only detective cheat that was available was demotion and promotion. Both of which I tried without results-- well other then embarrassing my sim.

Thank you for your help though.

@Darkdani81 Hm. I need to check next time I'm ingame. Maybe they were removed.

Crooked Cops?

★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? Latest patch after Snowy Escape
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play Police Officer Career in Get to Work
What happens when the bug occurs? Cops are either suspects of behind bars.
What do you expect to see? Regular random suspects and detectives being detectives.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Snowy Escape Pack

One of my Sims is police chief. She had gathered clues and done all her analysis to get an APB for a mean female wearing jeans and a long sleeved shirt with brown hair. I get to the APB site and there she is! Much to my surprise and dismay, she is my friend, Noel, and she is a fellow Detective. She is also the only other Sim in the whole library. I can't Ask her about the suspect and I can't arrest her. So, what do you do when you have a dirty cop on the Sim Force? I did what I could do and went back to the police station empty handed. As I was going to go about my other tasks to fill my work day, imagine my surprise when I found two of our detectives behind bars! I talked to them just fine but I couldn't let them out. I went to the station and fingerprinted and took mugshots of the criminals in the holding cell just fine and was able to lock them back up. 

So, either there needs to be some intervention with Sims Internal Affairs because our police force has more dirty cops than Gotham, or there's some bugs going on that need to be addressed.

I can talk to her about work/ case related topics but nothing more.

Well, it would seem this is still an issue as I have just encountered this for my first case by myself. :'-(

In an unmodded game, the suspect will always be a newly created Sim. If you have an existing Sim (in this case: police officer) chosen for the role, this is due to a mod (probably Paulsons NPC mod or a similar mod, though it will not happen with my townieoverhaul_lessfame as I made sure to not mess with the suspect filters.

 

So this one clearly is NOT a game issue.

@83bienchen But there's users in here saying they never used mod and one of them used to be a regular here that I completely trust.

Re: [OPEN] [GTW] Cannot arrest suspect if suspect is also a police officer

I think I found a fix. Turn on testing cheats (testingcheats enabled after pressing CTRL + shift + C) and then add the suspect to your family via shift + Left click and then have them quit or retire from the police job. After that you can remove them from your family the same way you added them. Attempt to arrest then. Sometimes it says it’s the incorrect suspect even though I know they are the one I’m searching for, so just go back to the police station and reiniciarte the APB and it should mark them as the proper suspect then. Hope this helps y’all!

@crinrict That may be so.

I can only talk about what's in the code and the filters are properly set for that one. Sims in the detective career are even expressively excluded by a separate test.

The report is also rather old. I remember there being a bug where existing Sims were taken for all roles excluding them a while back, but this one is long gone by now.
