Did it actually level up or did the bar just not go away ?

Have you tried this without any mods installed ?

The skill leveled up a couple times, I would slowly go up until it reached the next level and when I started the game again she still had the boosted violin skill. I also didn't have the skill bar over her and would only be able to look at it slowly going up in her skills panel. I haven't had the chance to test it again but I don't think any of my current mods effect gameplay (just CC like hairs and new windows).

Hi @SirisGen

 

I tested this in my game and was not able to replicate this. 

 

Was this a one time thing for you or can you replicate it when you do the same ?

No I haven't been able to get it to do it again. I think it might just be a delay in it telling me she's leveled the skill since I switched to another sim at another lot for a bit and just showed it in a weird way over the next couple days.

Do you have other lags ? Could be that there was an delay.

Let me know if it happens again. Maybe someone else also has this issue and can chime in

Moving this to tech issues for further troubleshooting and info. Can always move this back if it's happening to many people or reproducibly

@SirisGen
When the interaction ends, the sim stops gaining skill. You can check it in the list of this sim skills. This skill stops being highlighted.Often, however, a marker remains above his head and it looks like he is still learning. It will disappear if you reset the sim. It can also disappear if the sim takes a shower or changes clothes. It disappears immediately if sim begins to learn another skill. This phenomenon occurs in my game only when learning logic while playing chess, and when learning to play the instrument. This is of course something like a bug but completely harmless but I believe that it can be annoying
