Re: Werewolf XP bar bug

★★★ Novice

All my werewolves have this issue. Some in packs, some not. I have never used mods. I even have the black silhouette bug.

Overmaxed Werewolf Can't "rank up" or Receive Additional Ability Points

★★ Novice

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? 1.90.375.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Teen werewolf is Apex, Beta in Wildfangs. Has all dormant abilities unlocked.
What happens when the bug occurs? Despite having enough EXP to earn another ability point in overmax, my sim never earns the ability point in overmax.
What do you expect to see? When my sim earns sufficient EXP, he should earn an ability point.
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 

Overmaxed sim is maxed out to earn a new ability point. When he does something for EXP, the bar turns gold as if he's earning it, but the rank never changes and no additional ability points are received. I tried the rank cheat to see if I could force it to resolve but it doesn't work.

Re: [W] Lunar Howl resetting points/Level

★★★★ Novice

This is exactly my problem, and it's only started for me recently, so I'm not sure what the issue is.


Wolf Info:

Moonwood Alpha and Moonwood Beta, pre-made sim (Jacob Volkov) and my created sim respectively.

Both should be Apex, maxed over a few times

Issue: Rank is resetting in a few scenarios; when using Lunar Howl, when over-maxing the Apex bar, and occasionally when loading into my save.


I have all expansion packs bar high school years, and all game packs except wedding stories and batuu. I do use a mod, MC command centre, but this has been occurring before I installed the mod and continues without it.

@astrogeek Wait I've just realised it's happening in my save to my unplayed sims as well, I know that Lily Zhu starts as an Apex wolf but in my save she's only a veteran...

I've had this issue too. The most recent one is with a werewolf of mine who is not in a pack. Sometimes when I would cheat her to a lower rank then to apex, that would fix it. But this does not seem to work this time. It is very frustrating.

I just had this bug myself. My sim had reached the apex rank and shortly after using the lunar howl she demoted to veteran rank recovering 2 points. I sent my savefile to the Gurus.

★★★ Guide

This has happened a few times for me now. I've found a work around for this bug. Enable testing cheats, then type in the cheat "stats.set_stat rankedstatistic_werewolf_progression 3000". This will level your werewolf back up to Apex. I've tried with numbers like 5000 and such, but 3000 seems to be the only number that works in fixing the level.

@TheSimsDirect Thank you, but please be aware that vampires and spellcasters have a similar issue with their XP progression so a common fix might be an option.
