Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.99.305.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cottage Living, Cats and Dogs, Dine Out, cool Kitchen, CIty Living, Get to Work
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Cottage Living doing an errand for the Grocery Delivery guy, Taste for Adventure
What happens when the bug occurs? The task to Make a Cross Stitch won't complete. Doesn't matter how many times I make a cross stitch, it won't complete. I also tried to bypass it by giving a cross stitch to the mayor as a gift, but it didn't work.
What do you expect to see? I expect for the sim to make a cross stitch and once it's completed in her inventory the task completes and I get a new task so I can finish the errand.
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? No
I have been trying to complete this errand for a few days. It says to complete the cross stitch. I completed that but it doesn't move to the next task. After googling, it seemed that I should just gift it to the mayor anyway and follow the tasks on the pop up list. The pop up list will sometimes say to deliver it to the mayor and sometimes it says that I have completed making it. I have made and gifted 3 different cross stitches to the mayor, but the tasks still never change. I don't have any mods, have repaired the game several times, and have the new patch update.
Edit By Crinrict: Added Tag to Title, Adjusted Title, moved to bugs
I have also an issue with this errand. I completed everything but I don`t get the reward. (first screenshot)
I even read that there are issues with several errands and there are additional tasks that need to be completed but they are not showing up. You only find it out by reading the popup text when you accepted the errand. I got back and read that the cross stitch needs to be gifted to the mayor. After I gifted the cross stitch to the mayor it updated and "Convey Mayor`s feelings to the Grocery Deliverer" (second screenshot)
After finishing this the errand was completed and I got the rewards. This needs to be fixed because not everyone can go back to the text when they accepted the errand. I was lucky that I just started it yesterday.
I made a cross stitch and gifted it to the Mayor. The task is still there. I made another one. There was no special interaction when I gave it to the Mayor, like there was when I gave the other items to the Grocery Deliverer. So I suspect that's why the task didn't update. I just used the regular Friendly-> Affection -> Give Gift. I'm not sure what to do now. I may have to just cancel the whole errand.
I am having the same issue. I really don't wan't to cancel because I'm trying to get livestock upgrade parts. (Side note, I have one, but the upgrade that requires 1 is still gray and not available.)
August 2023 and running into this as well. I made three cross stitches. The first of which I gave to birds on accident because I didn't realize I needed to gift it to the mayor. I gave the second one to the mayor as a Finchwick Favor, and the third I gave as a friendly gift, but the task still hasn't progressed. I think I screwed it up by gifting the first cross-stitch to the birds and the game doesn't know what to make of that. Not sure what to do other than just deleting the errand, which I want to avoid since I need coop upgrade parts (a fox got my golden hen). Frustrating that EA still hasn't fixed this but not surprising. Adding to this in hopes that it gets traction and someone finds a fix.
As far as I remember there was a special interaction for it. I did not use friendly gift or favor. Usually with all the errands there is a special interaction for gifting the certain item. It‘s been a while so I don‘t remember what words exactly. Hope you can find it. This bug is so annoying :-(
Replying to this in the hopes that someone has a fix or any suggestion? I am having this bug and it's incredibly frustrating. I can complete all of the Taste for Adventure errands apart from the cross stitch one. I tried giving it to her as just a regular gift and it still didn't work. I have now cancelled the errand as I don't see the point in keeping it there if I cannot complete it. It's really strange because I played this pack a few months ago and was able to complete it fine so clearly the bug is getting worse. I'm a very story based player and not being able to progress with this is affecting how I play this pack. I have also noticed that I am not able to lure rabbits out of ANY rabbit holes...they just never appear. There so many issues with this pack and the Taste for Adventure one is not listed on the recognised bugs and people have been having this issue since last year I believe? Please fix this Sims, it's a key part of the pack that we all paid for
Same issue. I’ve made 8 cross stitches and the “Make a Cross-stitch” task will not complete so I can move on with the rest of the errand. Even cancelled and restarted the errand just to get stuck at the same spot. Wonder if it’s because I’ve played several generations and my grocery deliverer is Erica Monroe and not Rahul. My mayor is also Rodolfo Trout and not Lavina.
Please post a screenshot of what the errand task says.
