Freelancer Career Bug

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.51.77.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except - Jungle Adventure - My First Pet Stuff - Toddler Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Join the freelancer career and get a gig.
What happens when the bug occurs? The freelancer career acts as the actor career. I join a gig, and instead of it showing the criteria to finish it, it says a start date, and invite over director/co-stars. I can still do the 'gig', but I can't finish it.
What do you expect to see? The freelancer career shows criteria to finish the gigs, and lets you finish them. (like how it works for most people)
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

What it looks like for me:

If you have the UI Extension cheat mod, this is the problem. remove it from the mod folder, and then it should work fine. we have to wait until they update the UI Extension mod.

Hi @ItzEmma1

have you tested this with all mods removed as well ? Could be a mod conflict.

@chinwe24 

 

Only Sims in the Actor/Actress career should see the button to Invite director and co-stars over. You say you do not see it in this career. Which other careers do you see it in?
