Trying to play Strangerville. I've played it before on a different save file, back when the GP came out.
Playing on my legacy game, haven't had any issues. When my sim gets a scanner, he immediately tried to use it but it didn't really do anything. I try and send him down to get spores at the lab, and I get "Cannot use Infection Scanner as its battery is low, please give it time to charge". Ok. So I forgot about it. Today I went back to try again, and again, infection scanner battery is low. I haven't used it. There's absolutely no way it's low. I tried debugging the scanner, getting a new scanner from a sim, getting new scanners from debug, everything. The last one, I tried both before and after removing all mods and CC, removing localthumbcache.package (and another one very similarly named to see if that one was the issue), and repairing the game multiple times.
I *did* have issues regarding other aspiration goals not working previously, but they were all for non-strangerville related packs and appear to be ongoing issues that have not yet been completely resolved.
I'm playing on:
Processor - AMD Ryzen 5 2500U w/ Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx 2.00 GHz
Installed RAM - 8.00 GB (6.95 usable)
System type - 64-bit operating system, x64-based processer
