Re: [TO ADD] Sim no longer resumes writing books

★★★★ Novice

Unfortunately so, it just happened to me.

 

level 10 writing and was resuming a biography, after accidently starting a different book, finishing that one, and trying to go back to this one. but being unable to. My sim sits down to write, then immediately gets back up and starts the next task. The task of writing never actually begins.

Ok so, while i don't know for sure if this caused the bug. but this is definitely something to look into

 

I have done this a second time now, with a second book, both that I can no longer finish. It happened that i was writing it (biography again) just before work, and when work came around i joined the work day immediately. I think this might have something to do with it. I currently am in the detective career and climbing the ranks, so i regularly switch to my work day. Could it be that by writing a book, biography in this case, and then clicking join when the window comes up, the bug is triggered?

 

It would be nice to have this looked into further.

I just tested this with my Sim. Playing the fame career and had no issues, even after joining. Maybe it's one of these: Just happening with this and that pack patch.

Could you list all packs you have ?

Yes, but the workaround that I found was to have the sim start eating and then queue up the resume book - then the action slides into place and you can cancel the eating - frustrating but it is still happening

"the workaround that I found was to have the sim start eating and then queue up the resume book"

 

I tried this, but sadly it does not work for me.

She won't resume writing a book nor write a book at all. She can do all other things on the computer except write the book. And she’s in the writer career so she needs to do it for her job :/ btw I have city expansion packs and vampire world. And a few other packs too

Could you try a different household if it works there ?

 

Any mods in your game ?
