Get to Work/Get Famous Work/School Notifications

★★★★ 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? 1.47.51.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Sims 4: Jungle Adventure, Get Famous, City Living, Get to Work, Cats & Dogs, Get Together, Vampires,Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Unless my sims are celebrities, they don't get a notification that work begins in an hour. My Get to Work Professions Sims do not get the option to go to the place of work; i.e. those in the medical field don't get the option to go to the hospital. My sims won't go to work or school unless prompted.
What happens when the bug occurs? Nothing happens.
What do you expect to see? I would like to see my sims with professions get the notification to join them at work and my career and school sims to get the notification that school or work is starting soon.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Installed Get Famous

Unless my sims are celebrities, they don't get a notification that work begins in an hour. My Get to Work Professions Sims do not get the option to go to the place of work; i.e. those in the medical field don't get the option to go to the hospital. My sims won't go to work or school unless prompted.

 

Additionally, my sim was abducted and gave birth to an alien baby who cannot attend school. I select "Go to School", but the command is ignored and disappears.

 

I also get notifications that my sim's audition is in an hour while playing another household.

Hi @cmariap

 

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

Good Luck and Happy Gaming

It worked until I started playing a celebrity household with the actor career.

Just open your documents\electronicarts\thesims4\ folder and see if there's any files called lastexception

 

If so, c/p the content in here
