Product: The Sims 4
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? 150.67.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything except My First Pet Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don’t know exactly but maybe it’s because I made my Actor sim retire from the acting career.
What happens when the bug occurs? Everytime.
What do you expect to see? Sims receiving their Shrewd trait money as usual.
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
Discovered the same thing myself. Tested it several times with different games, and keep encountering it. For me it's only happened since the 1.50 patch, that I've noticed, at least.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
I am having the same trouble with the shrewd trait. Also, maybe this is separate, but my sim never received any of her career rewards as she moved up in her career in acting.
Thank goodness, I thought I was missing it - It’s not working for me either. I’ve never had any mods installed, and haven’t done anything differently from when it was working, so it’s def a game issue.
Like other users in this topic, I have the same problem, too. Forcing removing and re-adding the Shrewd (Invested) trait does not solve the issue. I've created a fresh new save game, completed the aspiration goals, received the Shrewd trait. After actively playing for 3 sim weeks with the trait, I have received the money only once. Didn't receive the money at all after that. With my other save, I have received like 1 or 2 times within 10+ (sim) weeks played after the 18.104.22.1680 update. Looks like either the time tracking or something else related to the trait is broken.
For me it has never worked for very long. Last year, my Sim got the trait and I think it worked for about 4 weeks. Much later, his partner got the trait which worked for maybe 2 weeks. They moved when children came and they again got it but only once. I had long forgotten about it when I added mods to my game, but I had just figured it was a temporary thing anyway. Now I'm wondering. It would be nice to know how it's really supposed to work.
