    Every day I check for a patch, and every day I'm disappointed. (Although I realize there are a lot of bugs to fix this time around, not just this one.)

    Right now I'd be happy if EA just acknowledged that the bug exists... so far I've seen nothing to that effect.

    I started to notice this bug a few days ago and am glad I found this thread today. However I was playing the Legacy Challenge and now my sim will become adult without fulfilling his teen aspiration. I don't use mod or cc or any cheats with this game. I guess till it's fixed I will have to start a new family. Going to bookmark so I can keep up on this.

    I am waiting for a fix to kill all of the bugs engendered by Sims Spa edition. They are numerous and I hate to give it up because it has too many lovely effects with it.

    It's been over a week now. Any worthwhile developer that actually cares about their game would have fixed a bug like this immediately.

    Noooo I though that I was okay but yesterday I met the same problem. I can't complete the butterfly aspiration because of this ❤️❤️❤️❤️ bug ! This is completely stupid, why don't they fix that bug and FAST ? It must be the worst of the bugs because it is the essence of the game : socialising ! I am soooo mad !!

    This is the worst bug I've seen, seriously. How am I supposed to play if i can't even make friends? ;____; I'm so sad and angry right now.
    The only things that we can do right now are: Playing with a hermit sim or not play until EA fix the bug T-T

    Day Number 442: Still waiting for some kind of sign that this game breaker will be patched
  • SassySassy Posts: 8 New Member
    All of my relationship bars are decaying because there's no point in even trying to repair them. Can't wait for the patch.

    Steam = yes, EA = no... Unfortunately... We'll have to wait until next month...

    I also have this bug, and it's really annoying. My Sim is a scientist and she can't get a DNA sample from anyone, and I suspect this is also because no one is her friend, even though the green bar is full. Her only friend is the invention constructor, so that's pretty sad.
    My mailbox isn't working either, so I can't get any elements or post cards. I don't want to start over (if that'll even solve these issues), but like this it's not fun to play the game anymore.
    Yesterday I added one of my Sims "friends" to my household to see if she can make any friends. She does have some friends she made before I started playing with her. I haven't tried making new friends yet, I'm gonna do that now. I'll let you know how it goes, if you're interested.

    PS: sorry for any mistakes, I am not English. ;)

    Hello @hhlwolf.
    This link may help as a workaround for the elements and postcards issue

    Thanks @rosemow , I'll check it out!

    I also have this impartial bug, but I just came across something similar, yet different. Acquaintance bug! My sim and her child just became acquaintances after I accidentally forgot to socialize, and now it's high enough to be friend again, but stuck at acquaintance! For the record, I've tried all of the workarounds, none of them helped. =(
  • SarduchiSarduchi Posts: 208 Member
    Tried another game, hit both the impartial bug and the inability to travel within 15 minutes... would be funny if it where not so sad.

    Yep, same for me! I hope EA get's this fixed!

    I posted this to another thread about the same thing... copy/paste FTW!

    (Let us know if it helps/works, hmm?)

    Do you use mods? Would you? Try weerbesu's UI Cheats mod from MTS:

    http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=558548

    You should be able to use it to fix relationships via the relationship panel in the game. I haven't tried it personally for that, but it should work fine. Does great for motives tweaking.

    MC Command Center is another idea, it comes with a Forget Me command to erase troubled relationships. These 2 mods together should make short work of this nasty bug, I would think!

    Is there another thread about this issue somewhere? Because I don't want to go off topic in this one, but this workaround didn't work unfortunately. :(

    Hello @hhlwolf.
    You need to stay on the lot until you get the elements back. The workaround helps some simmers but for other simmers it doesn't work in their game. I am sorry that it didn't help in your game.

    Yes I figured, but she has to go to work in the morning (she starts at 10AM) and I can't let her wait around until the post arrives, because then she won't earn any money. I have read somewhere that sometimes the post arrives around 7PM... that would mean she'd miss a whole day of work. Maybe I can try it in the weekends when she's free from work.

    Take a vacation day! You still get some pay when you do that. You can do that with your phone.

    I went to the bug forum of ea and found the thread about this problem. And you know what ? They marked SOLVED and posted a link to this thread. They didn't even put this problem in the bug compilation, like they aren't even considering it. I can't believe they mark SOLVED and send us here to do all these steps. This isn't solved at all !
