I have my game set so that all my sims are started out of the spotlight and if I choose to have a famous sim then I have to put them into the spotlight on that sim. Since the update, my sims are gaining fame and getting fame quirks eventhough they are out of the spotlight! Woo for bugs! 🙄

Sims who have chosen to forgo the spotlight will no longer gain unwanted fame.

Fixed in Patch 1.103.250/1.84

@SparkyRabbit82 To be sure cause of the other bug, they do actually gain fame and it's not just a message or them showing as famous ?

@crinrictI'm not sure - it's pretty contradictory, here's a ss 

*Also please ignore my sims' crazy outfit, it's apparently what the game thinks a style designer's career outfit is!

@crinrict I'm not sure as it isn't that they were like that when I loaded the game and it hasn't happened to any of my other sims: it may be a variation of it though? They've only gained fame as a result of carrying out actions that cause fame gain (like publishing books or career rabbit holes) eventhough they shouldn't given they are out of the spotlight.

@SparkyRabbit82 I tried to do fame interactions in my game with out of spotlight and they didn't gain any yet they do have the banner now (some other too so I don't know how much it's related)

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? 1.90.358.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Game Option -> Sims begin opted out of Fame -> toggle it on -> Performe any action in a puplic bar for over 24 hours -> Sims wil donate and your sim will get fame and become a celebrity.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims earn fame and become celebrity
What do you expect to see? No fame gain if you toggle "Sims begin opted out of fame* in game option on.
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. Patch 1.90.358.1030

Can confirm this, sims get now fame self if you toggle it off in option.

 

I test it with a new save / folder, I toggle it off the option to gain fame in options before I started a sim. I travel with this sim to the blue velvet in willow creek and let it there play the piano for over 24 hours. 

 

I never allowed the game that my sim can gain fame, but he got 1 star after the first day (your sim gain fame if he plays piano and sims donate) The fame gained don’t stop after first star, so yes, this system is broken and you got all the feature as it would be on. For myself I hope it’s only broken because I don’t have the new DLC. I don’t like it if all my sims can be famous.

 

Edit; Nope, still is there with High School
