Product: The Sims 4

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? 1.95.207.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except for CAS Kits
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the Scenario until Au Revoir, Lewis!
What happens when the bug occurs? "Get promoted to Startup Entrepreneur or eSports Gamer" and "Optional: Hack Work Performance" goals get checked but the Scenario does not complete.
What do you expect to see? The Scenario to be completed.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The recent patch was supposed to fix this scenario but I still can't complete it.

As stated above, the scenario still doesn't complete after the recent patch! I've tried to complete the scenario in a save with mods, and a save without mods. In neither am I able to complete the scenario, as it always gets stuck after completing the goals in "Au Revoir, Lewis!"

Completing the Au Revoir, Lewis! In the Stuck in their Shadow Scenario will progress to the next goal instead of getting stuck. Now, time to go check that mail box.


Fixed in Patch 1.102.190/1.82

Please create a new thread if you're still experiencing this issue,

@MariaSimmings Did you start a new save or is that one where it was already stuck ?

I got the same problem, after patch 1.95.207.1030 but on stage "Team with Lewis" on a pre existing save (already stuck) from October 2022 (or even older). Goals are checked but the Scenario does not continue / complete.

I’m using a new save file. I saw elsewhere that moving could potentially get the new tasks to come up.. it didn’t work. I did receive the postcard and read it and clicked “Stop inviting yourself over”, Lewis is still in my option for friends. I’m too impatient to restart the scenario and do it all over again..

I am having this same issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/FIXED-Stuck-in-the-shadow-not-completing/m-p/12133983#M237304

And based on the last post in the thread by  @crinrict  I am making a new thread since this is happening after a patch that was supposed to fix it.

 

I started this scenario after the Infants/Growing Together update, and have not previously played this scenario or any others.

I'm posting this as a reply rather than an edit so that it gets seen:

 

This never happened in previous play-throughs where I got stuck here. I kept playing for days even thoughi t's been stuck (Nova has had a couple babies in the meantime, who are now infants).

 

I just moved Nova to San Sequoia, and after a day I noticed there was a new option under the stuck objectives: Get Mail. I clicked that, it said to read a postcard, which I did, and it said "Wait for Lewis". In a previous save I think I had this as a step from a different branch and he never showed up because it got stuck there, too. Well, he did show up in this space outfit and it says to Ask About Career. Here is where I am currently stuck, because there is no option in any of the menus to ask about career. I may have already asked him in the past? Either way, it isn't in any of the menu branches now, so I cannot progress further.

 

I thought I'd mention this because finally some objectives updated after always being stuck. I did not change anything in my game and as far as I know, there has been no update. 

 

Edit: I did buy & install a kit, but I don't see how that would change anything gameplay-wise, and I didn't notice any new/updated objective until I moved Nova.
