@THEalpaca26 See this for a temp solution: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-GF-Acting-Career-Sim-not-getting-gig-pop-up/td-p/8...

After lots of testing this afternoon and confirmation from others, the following workaround should work in all cases

 

  1. Cancel any stuck gigs you already have. You won't be able to complete them
  2. Get a new gig
  3. If you don't have the perk that allows you to skip auditions, you're allowed to travel until you have to go to the audition. I would make sure you're on the home lot before the audition starts.
  4. Do not travel, Go to CAS, the Map, Household Manager or reload the save game until you get the pop-up to go to work. No Loading screens allowed between the audition and the gig.
  5. It's no problem to let the the Sim go to the audition or other rabbit hole events. If you have another active career you play in that household, always send the Sim alone.
  6. Once you get the gig pop-up you can join the Sim at the set and do the task there. There should be no problem fulfilling them.
  7. You can then travel again until you get the next gig.
  8. You can save your game in between but not re-load or turn off.

For anyone where these steps don't work, please make sure you remove all your mods and test on a vanilla game to make sure it's not a mod issue.

 

 

So far, I've duplicated it for the following actions:

 

  • Reloading the game while you have a gig open (after audition)
  • Travelling to another lot while you have a gig open (after audition)
  • Using Household Manager (after audition)
  • Going to CAS (after audition)

These didn't trigger it for me

 

  • Going to build mode and changing things
  • Saving the game
  • Pressing M, then pressing M again to go back
  • Going for a jog in the neighborhood without switching lots
  • Going for a walk  with the dog in the neighborhood without switching lots

 

For those that are still having issues: Which gig are you choosing ? Does that matter ?

Can’t play go to work

★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
I want to talk about something you don't mention above: Since the update on April 8,2020 I can’t play go to work the actor
How accessible is the current experience? I can use parts of it
Summarize what in the product is difficult to use. Since the new update on Wednesday I can’t play go to work being a actor but before The update I could but now I can’t. I can go on auditions but when it’s time for me to actually play at work as a actor it won’t let me. It’s not even an option to go. It says the second part of the audition tune starts at 12pm & then the times comes & it isn’t even a option to go
How is this making it more difficult? I can’t play go to work
How can we reproduce this experience? Fix it so I can play go to work as a actor

Can’t play

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? GP08: 1.asset.live-hp08.49
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expect for the following - spooky stuff - romantic gardens - tiny living - luxury
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Prompt an actress to go to work more than once
What happens when the bug occurs? My actress will be able to go to auditions every time and the first time I will be prompt to go to work or stay home but after that I do not get any prompt I just get the time counting down till “0 minutes” and that’s where it will stay until I cancel the gig. I haven’t downloaded anything special and I only use the cheats “motherlode” and “move objects” I have tried to not use these and will still get this issue. Also I have seen the other article saying not to travel but I haven’t travelled at all my sim was at home the whole day. The ea help system is super frustrating! I had to speak to 3 different people and had to re explain the issue all 3 times and then was transferred on the 4th to be told they can’t help me and I will have to explain yet again on this site.. they should be able to help no matter the issue or pass you on to the team that deals with these bugs/issues.
What do you expect to see? The actress to be prompted every time.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

my sim is level two of the actor career and for some to most of the gigs have a bug where once my sim has passed the audition. I get them to meet the requirement and the day where they have to do the gig the notification where it says an hour until work starts. It does not appear for my sim but the timer in the job panel still happens and I don't get the pop up where I can join my sim to their acting job or them send by themselves. Also the timer says zero minutes and hours go by but they don't go to work.

Re: Sim

★★ Guide
@Missdanio This is a common problem since the update on Apr 7. Acting Sims won't go to their gig, or even get the popup, if you travel between the audition and the gig. The workaround is simply to keep them at home until the gig takes place. After the gig, they can travel as much as you want as long as they do it before their next audition. (Sims who don't get auditions need to stay home from the moment they book the gig.)

The main discussion of this problem is at:
