So does that mean if you enter a career with the corresponding skill already maxed that the career path/promotion steps won't work?

Still looking into it myself...  I'm keeping an eye on the bug forums to see if other people report similar issues, and I'm trying to get Nick past his current rank to see if he runs into the same issue.

Parents of heirs must be living in the Dynasty home, but marriage is not a requirement.
I was thinking about this the other day. If I'm aiming for the big happy family aspiration, would it be possible for a female heir to have/adopt two kids before the "spouse" moves in, making her third child the eligible heir? I was just concerned about the number of sims that Aspiration would eventually require you to have in the house, and having the heir as a younger child rather than the older one would give them a bit more time after older sims die/move out to get hitched and have kids of their own. (Does this make sense?)

What I'm asking is, can you have an heir have kids before the spouse is moved in, and if so, are those kids ineligible to be the heir?

Oh dear with the issues with getting previously gotten skill levels to register for both careers and aspirations to register I think I'll just temporarily stop playing my dynasty since I'll go away for Christmas and New Years either way on saturday, especially since I haven't been able to play since they released the patch earlier today. Wait it is after midnight better say yesterday.

They most likely will have release a patch to fix the issues when I get back.

I have the same problem as Play now. The Culinary Career wants you to Reach level 7 in Cooking Skill and Reach level 4 in Gourmet skill. Gen 3 has already maxed both out. She is 3 1/2 days out from her next promotion.

exactly this! My sims has cooking career lvl 8 and now the new requirement is gourmet cooking lvl 6 and it says she has 0/6! She has both cooking skills maxed out >.< Of course this is the last requirement I need to get the ambrosia requirements :( I really hope there is a way to fix it. Also she has the reward of never getting tired, after the update her 'sleep needs' decay again, so my no sleep reward is useless now :( I was very excited about the patch, but it is messing up my secend attempt at the dynasty challenge..

Thank you so much... I was just about, very, very nearly... gonna call it quits on the Hollingsworths... I'll still try to find a work around. There might be some use in uninstalling/reinstalling through Origin. I'll let you know if there is a non-cheat code way of restoring her work requirements.

isn't there a way or cheat code that can remove skills/add them? maybe that is something to fix our problem. I encountered the same bug with the cooking career.

With how many people on this forum alone that are having the issue, I doubt it'll make it a week without getting fixed.

Is anyone else's needs degrading super quick?  like my sims have to sleep now, even with never weary, and they have to pee/eat/shower like 3 times a day its kind of ridiculous.  I don't even have time to do my aspiration stuff anymore.

The only thing I noticed is that my sim also has to sleep even though she has never weary. The rest seemed fine (need-wise).

They did change the definition of Never Weary so I feel like that one was intentional, whether or not it was in the patch notes.  I'm gunna clear my cache and such...  it really feels like my needs are degrading super fast.

Challenge team:  The patch has allowed us to move Sims into our neighborhood by clicking on a neighboring house and clicking Move in household.  Is this allowed, as it no longer requires manage worlds, or is it against the rules?

ah did not know that, I did notice though that the need to sleep decays slower, so I suppose it is supposed to be that way then. hope clearing the cache helps, it did nothing for me with the skill bug for careers

I had the same problem with my Tech Guru - level 10 programming and level 9 video gaming not registering.  She's a spare, not an heir, so I gambled and had her quit her job.  Then I had her rejoin.  It now recognizes her skills but I did lose the daily task completion and the performance bar was almost all the way to the right and it is now back to the middle.

Also, I'm pretty sure she was at level 8 before she quit, but when she retook the job she's at level 7.  I know she was working on placing in 3 video game tournaments, which, if I'm reading the guide correctly, was a Level 8 requirement.  It's unfortunate that she lost progress, but at least now she can continue.

Either the Aspiration Satisfaction values have decreases substantially, or there's a bug there.  I had a sim with level 9 Logic, who, after the change in the aspiration requirements with the update, only had to max Logic to complete the Nerd Brain Aspiration.  I'm not sure how many Satisfaction points she had before completing it, but immediately after completing it she only had 1,750 total.  Previously this was worth 4,750 points.

That's good to know GlazeyLady. I wasn't prepared to do that with a founder in case she couldn't re-join the career and things went badly wrong.
I did end up using the career cheat but she had completed all the requirements and her bar was right at the end (I took a screen shot to show that which I can post if anyone wants to see it. It actually shows the bar so it's different to the other one I posted).
I actually feel, well terrible, about using the cheat but I just couldn't see any other way around it.  :(

Hm... I have no idea if this is a glitch caused by the patch or if it's how the aspiration works now... With the new Successful Lineage aspiration, it says have Child complete an aspiration.  Now, her daughter is a teen and completed Whiz Kid.  It hasn't ticked off, so I don't know if it doesn't count because she had already completed it before my founder had gotten to that step of the aspiration or if it will count if she can complete one of her adult aspirations... or if it's glitched.

@Shewolf13 Were you in the aspiration at the time your child completed theirs?  It seems like previously completed goals aren't registering currently, or at least not all the time.  If I remember correctly, the child aspirations SHOULD count for that.

Yeah, I believe so.  But since the levels have all changed and they switched around a lot of the steps in an aspiration, I'm not sure if it just didn't register or it didn't count it because it was put on  a later step, if that makes sense.

It does, actually, I had to do voodoo actions again because it got moved up in Tier.  I'm pretty sure all these "can't finish this career req" and "cant finish this aspiration req" even though its done already are all related.  Quickly, everyone storm the EA bug forum!

Edit:  I should mention that adult aspirations will work too, when it says child it just means your child, not the age type.  as long as you can finish an aspiration on your child before your parent dies you'll be fine.

Hey wolf, adult aspirations should work fine.

So as it turns out, I was right about the public enemy aspiration being an issue now.  The witness a Sims death requirement isn't broken, but it is almost impossible to fulfill without a lot of luck.  I just had an elder die in my household.  My sim wasn't in the room at the time,  but I ran him over the instant I got the notification.  Didn't matter.  You have to witness the instant of death.

  In addition, if the sim has anything else queued up, they won't witness it.  It's an entirely automatic action, which means if you arent in the room doing nothing at the time the sim dies, then you don't get the requirement.  Without the ability to kill off a Sim, completing the aspiration becomes a matter of luck.  You can even get unlucky, you can be in the room doing nothing, but your sim might auto queue a cook food order and miss the moment of death.

Edit:  I have screen shots showing the dying elder, the one sim that witnessed it, one running off to cook even though he was in the area at time of death, and my last sim not witnessing it even though he is obviously watching it happen.  There isn't an interaction to witness it.

@ dethdukk, ouch. That aspiration is now very, very tricky. To the point of impossible. Just a thought... and it most probably won't work but have you tried mourning at an urn? maybe (somehow) it might trigger the goal. It's a long-shot for sure....

Yes I did, and no it didn't.  So yeah, at this point my only hope I guess is to just invite elders and hang out near them till they die and hope Nick decides to witness it.

So if my evil sim just happens to invite over another sim, and that sim just happens to get into an argument with him in a room full of angry paintings and dies of a cardiac arrest, would that invalidate my dynasty?

What if they got into an argument with another NPC sim and died that way?

That sounds like a simple solution, but I'm scared to try it out with my founder. Are you sure you will start at high level again?

So everybody seems to be having issues with the new patch, like skills not registering...I seem to have a problem at the opposite end of the scale where my founder completed the Master chef aspiration but hasn't fulfilled the culinary level 8 requirement, as she's only level 4. I am wondering if I count the aspiration once she reaches level 8? The thing that really troubles me is now i've got Satisfaction points undeservedly and the aspiration reward trait(Fresh Chef).

I won't tell if you keep it quiet. oops. Too late.  ;D Just kidding - no, seriously, just be honest and put in the work necessary to complete the Aspiration even if the game thinks you already did.
