Unable to complete task for Angling Ace Aspiration

★★★★★ Apprentice

I'm trying to complete the task for the Angling Ace Aspiration where you have to bowl or mount 5 fish. I've mounted two of them, purchased two bowls and tried to add the fish both manually and through the 'Add fish....' interaction. None of it trips the aspiration counter - it's still showing as zero zero.

@jari121red 
Having completed this aspiration recently I can confirm it is possible.
That said there have been reports of aspirations in general that are some aspiration goals are seemingly not completing as expected.
To eliminate any possible conflicts I need to ask a few things.
Are you on PC\Mac or console?
Do you have mod or custom content of any kind in your game?

Tips:
Be sure the aspiration is 'active' when completing goals.
In the case of this particular goal for the Angling Ace Aspiration wait until you have all 5 fish,
Once you have them all choose to mount or bowl them in the same session without traveling.
If you have completed the task but it looks like it did not count try traveling to another lot and back home.

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] [PS4] No credits for mounting/putting fish in bowl

[ Edited ]

@slycat218  @crinrict  I was able to duplicate half of this on PS4. I made a new game with a new sim who was an angling ace aspiration. I fished to the part where it's to mount or bowl fish. When I had my 5 fish from the previous step, I placed three in bowls and they did not count. I removed them and placed them back in and there was no credit. However after they didn't work in the bowls, and I had taken them out they did count when I mounted them. So my fisher did get credit from the mounting but not the bowls.

 

I don't know if this is the place to put this next part either, but I haven't had any of the dlc fishing tanks count towards this aspiration but the bowls worked before.

I have this issue on xbox, just tried going to another lot and home again and it didn't fix it.. Please help

 

Also I'll add that I first tried to mount 5 fish all at once, then I put them on the wall.. Still didn't work. Then I bowled another 5..didn't work.. That's when I tried the lot option and unfortunately that didn't work either Frown

I've never had any trouble with it counting mounted fish, but I've never seen it count any bowled fish - whether in individual fishbowls or in aquaria. That part is completely broken, across multiple games - and I've never had any cc or mods in my game, and it was like that even when I was playing with pure base game. Even though they're just electronic fish, I still hate killing them for decorations ... and dead bodies are a pretty macabre decoration, imho.
