HI @AuthenticElle 

 

have you tested this without mods installed ?

 

Sounds like a possible mod conflict. Mods get outdated with patches so please test this without mods (create a backup of your save with save ans and then test on that) to see if it works.

 

If it doesn't quit the career and re-enter (still without mods) and see if it goes back to normal then.

Happy Gaming

Neither solution worked. :/

Could you test a fresh save (same career) that doesn't have any mods and see if it also happens ?

For testing purposes.

 

Also make sure to delete the localhumbcache file as well.

I did this and it did not work, but I discovered something.
None of my sims will use the toilet, they'll only use the bushes (which is really inconvenient for wintertime) and the dogs will only go potty if I carry them outside (again, inconvenient for wintertime)

Also, I noticed that the Tech Guru career is the only one that is broken like this.

Tested the career in my game and have no issues getting paid so it doesn't look like a general issue.

 

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 and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • 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.
