[PS4/XB1] [V] Not able to level up/gain points past Grandmaster level

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 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? SPO7:1.assets.live-sp07.68
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All packs and all dlc.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? It's when you create a new vampire sim. You can level her up with about 40 power points then the bar stays full and you can level them up anymore. This has been going on for about 6 weeks maybe longer. I have reported the problem to guru on Twitter. They said they know.but that was about 4 weeks ago. Herd nothing since of when this problem will be fixted..
What happens when the bug occurs? Just can not level new vampire Sims up with power points. Bar stays full.
What do you expect to see? The bar goes full then back to nothing till you start leveling up..then the bar moves across once full you get power points..that's what should happen..but like I say it stays full..so you can not level up.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Please can you let me know when it's going be fixted. I know they say yes were aware of the problem..but that doesn't tell when or how long it could take.. thank you..

Hi

it's also still an issue on PC: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-V-Not-able-to-level-up-gain-points-past-Grandmaster-level...

EA/Maxis doesn't give out any ETA on when something will be fixed, so you just have to be patient.

This happens for every vampire character I create. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game and all of it's expansions. My gamer tag is matrixmoon.

Just tested - Pre-existing sims that were not vampires before the patch will still be stuck at 48 points if turned after the patch

About to test if new sims made (both via CAS + newborns) after the patch are affected

Even if you try the workaround ? That seems odd.

Did you try with what @ogspeace posted ?

Playing on console at the moment so can’t easily use cheats without disabling all my achievements unfortunately.
Still raising the newborn sim so that will take a few days to get to teen stage when I can actually ask to be turned. Hopefully this time it’ll work

Do you mean vampires created via CAS or preexisting sims that have not been turned?
Will new normal sims that have been made after the patch be affected if I ask an existing vamp to turn them?


the solution i posted applied for pre existing vamp sims (the ones that had the vamp leveling bug)... vamps that were recently made (after the recent patch fix) would be free of bugs.

That’s odd, because I tried turning a sim that has never been a vamp but existed before the patch and the level bar got stuck at 48 points

Hi @Hahahehehohohei 

 

this isn't fixed for console, just of PC. 

 

I moved your post over to the console thread.
