Re: [PS4/XB1] Freelancer: paintings do not go to the inventory at all

★★ Novice

Hi, sorry to be bringing this old thread up but I'm having a similar issue. I hope this isn't a problem!

 

Product: The Sims 4
Platform: PC
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? I'm not sure how to check for that but I just updated the game today.
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get To Work and Dine Out
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Buy a sketchpad and finish a painting.
What happens when the bug occurs? After finishing a painting, it won't go into my Sim's inventory. I've also checked the storage in Buy Mode but they don't go there either. Also, I noticed that when you try to sell a sketch pad in the inventory, it sells for zero simoleons. I've tried buying a new sketchpad but the same thing happens.
What do you expect to see? The paintings should go to the inventory and the sketchpad should sell higher than zero simoleons.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? None.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. After the newest update of the game.

Just updated my game today and I'm having the same issue. Seems it hasn't been fixed. It's making it impossible to complete freelance jobs.

Freelancer artist/sketchpad bug?

[ Edited ]
★★★ Newbie

So it’s letting me do the first part of the freelancer artist jobs e.g chat with client, study image and I can start the painting on the sketchpad but when the sim has completed the painting there’s nothing there? Like no painting in the inventory and the career part isn’t ticked off. I tried to do a normal painting on the sketchpad to see if it was just a bug with the career and it’s not working for any other paintings either! I’ve looked at forums from before and some say to sell the sketchpad and buy a new one which I’ve tried many times and it hasn’t worked and I’ve also tried quitting the career and rejoining which hasn’t worked either Frown also I’m playing on console not pc so I don’t have any mods

I have also noticed my sim still has the sketchpad pen in her hand while she’s not using it?

I have mods, I also turned them off to see if they were the cause. However they were not. I'm going to assume its the game its self. Frown

Freelance career broken

★★★ Newbie

 I just downloaded Snowy Escape and tried to have my Sim join the freelance artist career, but it doesn't work!!  Every time I go to create an icon it gets about 99% done and then just snaps back to the sim standing still and the tablet on the floor. BUT NO icons completed and $50 gone for starting it. I tried without mods, restarted, from inventory and from table but nothing working. Anyone else notice this glitch??
