[UNSURE] [GF] Royalties for released songs on mixer station don't stop

[ Edited ]

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.48.94.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? ALL
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Release some songs.
What happens when the bug occurs? Royalties gradually drop to $1-$10 but remain there, neverending.
What do you expect to see? Royalties drop to $0 and stop.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.

Been 42 sim days since last song, yet the first one ever released still shows up as $1-$2 after like 80 sim days.

Are you basing this on how the other royalties work that you say it's a bug ?

I'm not sure it is. So going to mark this as unsure for now.

CM merged posts 

Yes, my video royalties work fine for example, they peak and then go down gradually to 0 then disappear. My sim is still earning royalties from his first song, everyday $1 and so forth for the rest. 15 sim days added since last time.

Update: Still happening, first songs ever released get $1-$2. Anyone knows how (mod or not) to stop royalties? This doesn't happen with videos.


Update #2: I give up, I'm gonna look into the files and mod it out to work like videos. Since no one else has reported this I am guessing royalties from songs are intended to last for life as opposed to the video station ones. Odd though, some have remained stuck at $1-2 others at $30-50. Probably quality.

 

Please disregard this report. Thank you.

@crinrictYou can tag this as by design. I looked in the code, it seems that for music (unlike videos) it is:
<T n="pay_forever">True</T>
So by default released songs are paid forever.

I also have experienced this issue. My sim had several books, videos, and music tracks all published around the same time. Books and videos royalties stopped after a few weeks, but I still have music tracks royalties going after many weeks now.

I'd also like to add that my sim received a "mystical blessing" royalty a long time back while exploring the jungle, and that hasn't expired either. I'd like to see that removed eventually too.

What do you expect to see? I expect to see the music tracks and mystical blessing royalties end. I don't see why they should go on longer than any other royalties given. It's strange still having so much given in royalties many weeks later.

Hi @MayGirl517 

 

merged your bug report as well.

 

It's best to keep to one thread.

 

It's unclear if this was done on purpose or not so gathering more voices here.
