Get Famous is not working.

When I let my famous sim choose a job, and he invites producer and staff over, he doesn't get the call for going on the studio and is not being payed. It is so boring.

    I've been experiencing this on Xbox One. People on PC are also having this problem. I don't think I can link anything right now but you can find a bug report on EA Answers HQ. They found a workaround that works for me and many others. Once you complete the audition, there cannot be a loading screen between then and the gig, meaning you can't:
    Access CAS
    Travel to another lot (You can do rabbit hole events, however. These do not cause a loading screen.)
    etc.
    You probably know what causes loading screens.
    Its boring, but at least you can actually do gigs. This might not work for everyone, but its worth a try. After you finish the gig, you can do whatever you want, but if you pass an audition, you can't do anything that causes a loading screen. This is basically a thread I saw paraphrased. it isn't on this website.

    When your sim is clever enough, he doesn't need to go to auditions. That is cool, but that is not my problem. My sim invites the producer and some coworkers, but he never gets the call to go to the studio, so he doesn't make any money.

    This didn't work for me. I tried it after I first bought it (a few months after release).
    Did they fix it and and it came back or was it never fixed to begin with? :/

    Classic EA. An Expansion pack comes out a year ago and when there's a problem with it they ignore it because it's not the money maker anymore. I thought this was a problem with my mods and was disappointed that I'd have to disable them if I wanted to do the Actor Career again (something I've only done once when it first launched and wanted to do it again). Now I'm even more disappointed to find out that it's not even my fault! It's just another broken feature!
  • Simsister2004Simsister2004 Posts: 3,475 Member
    Oh yeah, and the whole career isn't much fun, when I can't go to the studio with them.
  • telmarinatelmarina Posts: 1,900 Member
    I don't know how this bug is still happening. The acting career is one of the most important features of the pack! I haven't played it for a long time, but i remember playing right when the pack came out and it was cool. Now im feeling that i don't want to play it again while it's broken. I feel that i don't take much more from the Get Famous pack without it...

    Also, the whole fame thing is really strange. Like for example, there is a famous lady she goes to the lounge a LOT, my sim knows her, they have had conversations while drinking at the bar or whatnot. And yet "Attempt introduction" is always unavailable. Sure you're a superstar lady, that's why you come down to the cheesy lounge I built in Brindleton Bay that dogs are allowed in? Like ALL THE TIME. It's just dumb and completely unrealistic. What you're too good to know my Sims name? ...

    I pay on Xbox and my Sim goes to the audition but never to the actual gig.

    There's a script mod by Brainblasted that fixes this bug with Sims not attending gigs in the acting career.

    I just can't believe that the game/the actor career can't be fixed by those who make the game. I refuse to install mods just to have a working game!
  • Sara1010PSara1010P Posts: 327 Member
    I have used mods in every edition of sims game I have played, because unfortunately EA has a habit of moving on to the next iteration of the game without fixing multiple bugs and issues with the previous one. I do agree that we shouldn't have to use mods to have a working game, however with the current trend it seems modders are more dependable to get fixes from than EA.

    Where do you find this mod? I tried looking around but I can't find anyone called Brainblasted

    It seems as though the acting career is broken...very disappointing. I hope they fix it soon.

    There is however a workaround this bug:

    https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-GF-Acting-Career-Sim-not-getting-gig-pop-up/m-p/8930411#M127294

    "Cancel any stuck gigs you already have. You won't be able to complete them
    Get a new gig
    If you don't have the perk that allows you to skip auditions, you're allowed to travel until you have to go to the audition. I would make sure you're on the home lot before the audition starts.
    Do not travel, Go to CAS, the Map, Household Manager or reload the save game until you get the pop-up to go to work. No Loading screens allowed between the audition and the gig.
    It's no problem to let the the Sim go to the audition or other rabbit hole events. If you have another active career you play in that household, always send the Sim alone.
    Once you get the gig pop-up you can join the Sim at the set and do the task there. There should be no problem fulfilling them.
    You can then travel again until you get the next gig.
    You can save your game in between but not re-load or turn off."

    I think I'm too new to the forums for the link to work, but here's the url: https://thefreshsims.tumblr.com/post/616054851635396608/acting-career-gig-fix

    It fixed my Sims being able to go to acting gigs.

    I hope they fix this soon and not wait over a year like with street gallery for City Living. The work around is inconveniencing and the Sims need to get paid so they can pay their rent. It's also boring gameplay if your Sim has to wait to go an audition and then, wait again, doing nothing before the eventual gig. Especially, when they could be doing other activities off the lot or visiting other worlds. Otherwise, EA should at least shorten the wait time in between gigs until they fix this bug.
