Additional feedback

I had a sim in the Modeling career who was a few levels into it (maybe to about level 4 or 5). I wanted her to switch to the Fashion Trend career, which is impossible because the two careers use the same station, so to do this I switched my sim to the Barista career for free. I didn’t start any shifts in the Barista career. Instead, I paid simoleons to immediately switch my sim to the Fashion career.

 

It took me awhile to notice, but my sim hasn’t progressed in her Fashion Trend career at all. She completed the initial first quick shift, and instead of going into the Chapter story which concludes every level, my sim is only given the option to do another quick shift. She’s simply not progressing. She’s on an endless cycle of level 1 quick shifts.

 

Would anyone be willing to replicate this to see if they experience the same progression issue? I can try to switch my sim to another career and back again. But my sim should be able to progress in her Fashion Trend career just fine. Not sure what the hiccup is here. 

Edit:

@SalixCat I just read your bug report. It’s similar in nature, but not identical. Both are related to switching careers (and the same careers). Are you able to progress in your storyline though?

 

Edit 2: 

I switched my sim from Fashion Trend to Modeling (where she was level 5 from when she left off) to Barista to Fashion Trend again. Same deal. My sim won’t progress past level one in the Fashion Trend career.

@simmerdownMAL I went from DJ career to modelling career and I seem to be progressing. I don't know if that helps you.

@simmerdownMALI noticed when I go to parties with my sim in the modeling career it uses the same thing for party points as the trending career does. Maybe that is the problem. I have yet to go to a party that I use a different item to get party points. It is always the dresser from trending career. Maybe that is the problem. I have bought the items for the modeling career for the home and I'm not sure if they are used for party points. If they're not used for party points, then why did I buying them.

@givememore86 I believe the issue is because the modeling career and the fashion career share the same work station. Switching from DJ career to a modeling career wouldn't share the same station, but thanks for checking.

If you have a sim switch from modeling to fashion career and experience progression issues, please let me know Standard smile

Now I'm curious why they make you buy more stuff for the modeling career for your home when they are not utilized. I would have saved a few simoleons in a couple llama zooms by not purchasing them.

@givememore86 You're discussing the party points and items related to the modeling career, which is also bugged and a report needs to be made, but is unrelated to this thread. Can we please stay on topic to career progression for the fashion trend career after switching from the modeling career?

@simmerdownMAL @givememore86 

Let's focus on the career not progressing issue Standard smile This issue affects only the careers that belong to the Fashion work station (sewing machine) which are Modelling, Fashion and ASOS Fashion.

I am not finished with the test rounds as I need to wait for a couple of days until I can retire three of my Sims.

 

@givememore86 you are welcome to write a bug report about the party items if you have observed something that is not working as expected.
