batuu patrol

[ 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? Unknown, but I'm up to date as of 9/10/20.
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them as of 9/10/20.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go to Batuu and progress with First order until you get high enough rank or get a mission requiring your sim to go on patrol, mission instructs you to select the ground and choose the "go on patrol" option, when I select the ground I do not see the option.
What happens when the bug occurs? "Mission instructs you to select the ground and choose the "go on patrol" option, when I select the ground I do not see the option." I have never seen this option, so I do not know what the game looks like when it is functioning as intended.
What do you expect to see? I select the ground while on Batuu and of the options I am given, "Go on Patrol" is not included.
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

I Discovered the solution. I'm posting this as an edit and a comment. It happens when you do the Mission: Wielding the Power for Kylo, if you complete the second objective listed (The first time it was "disperse Loiterers" and the second time it was "intimidate Citizens" before going on patrol, the option to Go on Patrol disappears and you are able to finish the mission despite it still appearing as an incomplete mission requirement. I was able to accept the mission a second time and before anything else selected the ground nearby, and the option appeared. This is still an unfixed bug as there is no indiication you can complete the mission without going on patrol until you speak to Kylo and are given the option to report in. Either the option needs to be available until the task is completed, or the task needs to show as complete when going on patrol is no longer available.

@Truly_RudlyI did not have the same exact issue you had, but I do have an issue that started up late yesterday afternoon. I posted about it yesterday, as a tip for others who might come across this same issue.
My issue is when you try to do a mix of the tasks instead of completingthe first task before starting on the task of checking IDs and making an arrest, after the fight and while my sim is supposed to be "escorting" the newly arrested, they are both actually just standing there out of your control for sim hours,  as you are left as the powerless player since you can not click on anything until that is complete. All while the sim does what she wants occasionally going to eat, talking to passersby or the gawkers still standing there watching. . .actually in a way it's kind of funny. But not when I keep forgetting not to do a mix of the tasks for the mission and I am stuck in the same loop all over again. Something eventually resets and you can continue to do the mission.
I believe it inky started and happened on the missions that are for Kylo Ren.

@Wholesome_Goth I think I ran into that one too, but I just restarted the game and dealt with my lost progress. Thanks for explaining it here though! Might be worth creating your own post if it keeps happening. Have a good day!

@Truly_Rudly 

 

Kylo's mission that you talk about has two objectives "Disperse loiterers" and "make an arrest". There is another Mission with "Intimidate citizens" and "make an arrest". Neither involves "Go on Patrol". The only mission with "Go on patrol" I have had involved going to Black Spire and check ID of 3 Batuu citizens. If you hover over the task in the work tab you will see a description of the things you need to do to complete the objective,

 

@Wholesome_Goth 

I did see an example after doing an arrest that the task to escort the arrested person did not start just as you describe. The reason for the error seemed to be that another First Order Officer interfered while I was wrestling with the arrestee.

 

Edit:

@Truly_Rudly I finally got the mentioned objective. The trick is to go to the Spire Outpost and click on the ground. There you can go on patrol. The Order of the two objectives does not matter.

@jpkarlsen I think they might mean "Patrol for suspicious activity"? 🤔

I just don't remember for certain, at the moment, if that was under any of Kylo Ren's missions.

@jpkarlsen That’s correct, it was Patrol for Suspicious Activity. Maybe it’s already been patched, but I was still unable to get that option when selecting the ground at the time. Thanks for your time!

I had a similar issue where even though I selected Patrol Batuu for Suspicious Activity it would never actually start the patrol. This was for the mission Unearthing Intel. I found I had set my droid to wait mode, then I was able to complete it.
