[WORKAROUND] [MSP] Fashion Photographer: Don't get approved pics back

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

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? 1.54.120.1020 (64 Bit)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Submit a photo for client's approval
What happens when the bug occurs? You never get the photo back
What do you expect to see? I expect to get my photo back so I can Post Photo to Fashion Simstagram
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

Just that. You are supposed to get the photo back after it is approved, but it never happens.

From what I've seen, it's broken when submitting portrait-orientated photos. Landscapes are always fine. Thanks for all the reports everyone Standard smile

@LaraNocturnal I have only tried it once so far and got the photo back the following day.

I was just watching a Twitch Streamer who experienced this bug. He moved from San Myshuno to Del Sol Valley and restarted the Gig but still haven't received the photo despite several game days passing and bills successfully delivered to the mailbox. He has all DLC installed.

@LaraNocturnal I also had no issues with this.

Needing some more details (also from all 19 people that clicked me too)

- Where are you living ? Sulani Beach Lot ? Apartment ? House
- Did you move while waiting for the pictures to arrive ?
- Does it happen for all gigs or only certain ones ?
- What kind of Sims are you playing ? Occults ? Normal Sims ?

- Did you get a message that the photo was approved (and not a declined one although I've also gotten those back)

- What kind of mods were you using and at what point did you remove them ? Have you tried on a fresh save that never saw any mods and deleted the localthumbcache file ?

The one who I was watching experienced this both in a Penthouse lot in San Myshuno and also in the expensive area in Del Sol Valley (I think its a townie House by default).

I believe the gig wasn't active while moved, as I saw him re-select the Jazz For Jammies Gig after he moved. This is the only one he tried. He's using a regular Sim (not occult) from CAS.

The photo was approved, as he went back and read the approval notification message multiple times to make sure he wasn't missing anything.

Actually yeah he does have mods on, but nothing that should be affecting this. Nonetheless I shall ask him to disable the mods, they were for a different save anyway.

I'll let you know in the next few days when he streams this again.
