[WORKAROUND] [GF] Skills/tasks for gigs and auditions don't appear

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.52.100.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Famous, Seasons, Strangerville, Cats and Dogs, Vampires
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go into the acting career and try out for auditions/roles
What happens when the bug occurs? The tasks or requirements for the role don't appear
What do you expect to see? A list of recommended skills or tasks that need completion which improve your performance
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

My sims are in the acting career and normally when you get a gig or audition, it shows recommended skills or tasks that need to be completed in order to give your sim a better chance at acing the performance. For some reason, the tasks/skills don't show up and my sims have only been doing mediocre and not been able to get a promotion or nominated for an award. How do I fix this issue?

Marked as Solution for Visibility. This is still an open issue.


 

 

i think ive worked it out you have to expand the tab its on then you can see further down 

 

 

EDIT (crin): Adding a link to my blog post for illustration how to do this: https://sims4.crinrict.com/eng/2019/06/tasks-skills-for-auditions-missing/

@IAmInhuman Just tested this in my game and it seems to work fine.

Could you try starting a fresh save to see if you get the same issue there (for testing) and also repair your game through Origin ?

I'm actually having the same exact issue. Mods and CC not installed and disabled in the main menu. Completely new save file. Freshly repaired installation of Sims 4. Sign up for first gig in a new acting career and theres no recommended skills or daily tasks shown underneath the gig details in the career tab.

 

File attached. Sorry for the crappy picture, but it should show the issue.

I have the same problem atm. I was looking for a thread like this. I have no mods installed (never did) I followed a clean factory reset and nothing works for me, tried making a new save file and still the same problem. Sometimes I can see the skills/tasks and sometimes I see nothing. It's really annoying when I can't see the tasks ._.

 

Edit: I also seem to have a lot of bugs when I'm in Del soy valley. I just bought the expansion like yesterday so I don't know if it was always like this. Bugs: Sim not doing anything. Sim changing clothes and won't stop. I don't see these bugs in other areas, and I played a lot lol.

Also having this issue where the requirements for gigs are not fully or expanding at all. It is just now popping up after the June 18, 2019 patch. I can sometimes get the tab to show one or two of the requirements after switching around tabs or, opening and closing the career tab a few times. This seems like an issue with how the career tab is now collapsible to allow room for part time jobs. I have repaired my game and used an older save file and still encountered this issue.

I am having this same issues. On a windows computer, got rid of all CC and mods, moved saves out of folder, started a new save, same issue. Will try the repair step but I think I will have the same problem!
