Sims 4 not getting promoted, not able to access fridge or bookcase correctly

Post by xllmtx on Sun 28 Dec 2014, 18:55

Hi I've been having trouble with a family that I made today (Sims 4) - Whenever he goes to work, when he arrives home he cannot "open" the fridge or the bookcase to see its contents (to choose what he wants to eat/read). I believe this is happening because it's still stating that my sim is at work, even once he's got home. I also can't access his inventory because of this - bascially I cannot do anything that it prevents you from doing whilst at work, although I'm home. The ability only comes back if I get him to travel somewhere & then return home, but then when he goes to work and gets back, the problem occurs again. Also, he doesn't seem to be getting promoted at all, although I've done everything they've asked, he's energised and always completes his daily work out, also has a good mood. Hope you can help.

Hello,


I recently had "only" the problem with the fridge, but that was resolved by simply exiting and re-starting the game. 


Did you save your game after that ? And did you recently add any mods or custom content ? If yes, you could try removing the stuff again.

I've exited and restarted the game but had no luck. I did save the game yes. I recently installed the free Holiday Christmas package via Origin -
could this be the problem? I'm trying to work out how to run the game without this package in use, but I can't figure out how to do it via Origin.
Also, ideally I'd like to use the package with the game - I just don't get why it's stating my sim is still at work & therefore preventing him from doing stuff,
when he's NOT at work. Annoying! - Have there been reports of any bugs with the new careers (athletic & business?) -
Thanks for responding! Hope somebody can help w/this.

I have a legit game and this Holiday Christmas Pack too, and no issues so far, besides this problem that was easily fixed by restarting. I guess you shouldn't have saved the game when you realized that issue. In general, NEVER save any game when you see that something is badly wrong. Even if you lose progress.

Other than that I can try doing some research on this; but that looks like an in-game bug to me...

The problem is occurring with almost all professions Not just the new ones so it doesn't seem to be an issue there. It's preventing me from playing the game now. Hope somebody can help.

Sorry for the very belated reply, but I've been away on vacation the last few weeks. I actually got the problem (I mentioned above) fixed by simply restarting the game. Other than that, I'm afraid I can't say more about it.
