[OPEN] Skill Point Bar Stuck

Original Post

Skills progress bar

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

It happened only with children and teens so far. When a sim does something that increases a skill, sometimes the bar continues to increase even after the sim stopped doing it.

 

Usually it happened when a child sim learns two skills at once, ie video games + one of those children-only skills. But a few days ago a teen sim played chess with a young adult sim, and after the adult won (having genius trait and 10 logic, duh), teen's logic bar continued to increase even when they stopped playing.

 

It's a strictly cosmetic issue, the skill does not increase with the bar. The bar remains until you reload, go to another location or the sim goes to school.

Skills not levelling up

★ Novice
i have noticed when I am getting a sim to build up a skill that the bar above their head is full and I presume they will then go onto the next level of that skill. But when I have a look at what percentage the skill is on, I notice that it is going past 100% and sometimes reaching 450%.

Why does this keep happening?

I've watched mine go up to 1000% before. It's insane.

 

Sometimes it helps to use testingcheats, shift-click the Sim, and choose "Reset Object." But I'd say this works maybe 50% of the time.

It is a bit of a mix up but the other bug you're referring to has a thread here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4-Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-Sim-is-constantly-learning-the-Logic-Skil...

 

So this is about he bar not going away, the other is about the bar going beyond 100%

Do you know which skill it is ? You can check on the skill tab to see which one your skilling atm.

I'm in the 50% that it's still an issue. Any other way to solve the problem ?

Did you try restarting the game ?
