[OPEN] [S] Sims cannot complete Improve Skill tradition

[ Edited ]
★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
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? The most current - is it 1.46 or something?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Make a Holiday with the “skill improvement” tradition or wait for New Skill Day to appear on the calendar while playing as a vampire.
What happens when the bug occurs? The skill improvement tradition will not complete for a vampire, but easily does for human sims.
What do you expect to see? The skil improvement tradition completing for the vampire as well as the humans when fulfilling it.
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 

I will try again tonight, as this was my first experience with New Skill Day. I was improproving the vampire’s flower arranging skill.I don’t know if being a vampire causes it, or an ability, or if it’s a bug with the flower arranging skill or what. She had gained at least two points  while the humans only had to go up one point and completed the tradition; the vampire didn’t.

My vampires have not had an issue on new skill day, never made a separate holiday but was flower arranging a new skill, as my human Sim had an awful day after gaining multiple skills in things she already knows. New skill day is new skill or low skill.

I had humans who went to level 6 or 8 and completed. It’s a new skill or improved skill.

I have a regular sim who just reached programming level 6 without it triggering the tradition, so it's not limited to vampires.

 

(Well, regular. He's a son of Father Winter and a Five Star Celebrity. Not a vampire though.)

My Sim said "New Skill Day" was "awful"

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? latest
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In "New Skill Day", like the description says, "improve the skill", have your Sim(genius teen) do some skill work. (My sim practiced some piano for few hours, Skill Lv8 X% to Lv8 Y%, Y>X)
What happens when the bug occurs? At the end of the event, the notification says that this event was awful.
What do you expect to see? When the Sim perform some skillup action, just mark the tradition as complete.
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

You started at level 8 and didn't get beyond level 8?

That's not enough. The bar needs to flip over to the next level of a skill to be considered "gained a new skill level" and hence improved.

Works fine for me. My sims always have awesome New Skill Days. Especially if I check their skill panel and just work on raising whatever bar is nearly maxed anyway for any skill.
