Hero

Speaking of the Stuck in their Shadow Scenario, ever get those Mysterious Phone Calls? Nope? Well you should get them now without needing to take your Sim into Create-a-Sim and back.

Fixed in Patch 1.102.190/1.82

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

 

Good Luck

Have they fixed the problem for you? I still have not received a call and wondering if it comes later as she gains promotion.

They have not fixed the problem for me either. I still have not received the call and I am done with her aspirations and promotions. I am not sure of what else to do and I've tried lots of tricks to help but nothing works, moving, restarting, updating, nothing works.

I'm having this same problem on PC. I've tried restarting the scenario three times but the call still won't trigger.

@cathreda @Killerjaw_7815 I was having the same problem, but had a temporary workaround: I used a mirror or closet to enter the CAS screen, and when I returned to the game screen, I got a call.

I hope this method works for you.

Same here - not getting any mysterious phone call. I have repaired my game and took out all my mods. Also started a new save game and still no luck. At least I know now it's not just me 😪

This didn't work for me, I have been promoted to Development Captain and I'm on the Computer Whiz milestone. I have tried everything I can think of but can't fix it. Do you have anything that can help me out?
