There is a known inventory bug where you can't scroll through your entire inventory.  If you are with a member of your household all you need to do it click on them and then back to your inventory and it is temporarily ok again.  However, when you are a scientist at work, you may need to scroll through your inventory for an item, like a serum, and you can't always do it because of the bug.  Would it be allowed to quickly click build/buy and immediately back to your Sim to fix the inventory glitch?

You can fix this without clicking on another Sim.  Just scroll up to the top of your inventory, and then switch to another menu on that Sim, and back.  This bug normally happens when you scroll down on your inventory and then switch to another tab.  To prevent it from happening, you should scroll back up to the top of your inventory before switching.  It can also happen though when you open up a stack in your inventory, or have the fridge and your inventory open at the same time.

Scrolling up and clicking a new tab doesn't work for me.  I found I had to close my inventory, switch to something else like the needs tab, then switch back to the inventory.  Thanks for letting me know as the only way I was dealing with it was to click on build/buy and then back to my Sim, which closes the inventory tab, or by clicking on another household member and then back.

I don't see a problem with you just clicking on build/buy mode to get rid of the bug, as long as nothing was change on the lot during build/buy phase.

dethdukk, that was the weirdest assumption - true, men who are abducted by aliens become alien pregnant, but that doesn't mean that aliens are like clownfish, who change their gender at will when they need to breed. (I got that tidbit of info from Cinema Sins video on Finding Nemo.) Unless you use a mod, you cannot have male pregnancy outside of alien abduction, so the 7th Immortal must be female rule remains. I hope that Get To Work's doctor profession allows you to change a baby's gender so the fact that you can't decide the gender of the baby born means that a cheat must be allowed if the seventh is a boy. *sigh*
I play The Sims 4 for fun, so I don't care if I never end up being interviewed for the Dynasty Hall of Fame; people who play for keeps burn out too easily and don't enjoy playing the games, so I am going to not sweat the details.

Yeah, I prefered sims 3 whole productive system better overall.  I also liked the fishing and gardening much more as well.  Also, the moodlet buff being based on quality, not based on what skill unlocked the food being prepared or whether it is gourmet or regular.

Did this latest patch fix the mail bug, or is it still messed up?

I miss the apple/watermelon trick so badly. I get so annoyed at having to have heirs of the gender I don't want. Makes me want to rant and rave to whoever will listen! lol

@EtnaFan666 , not such a strange assumption. I thought male aliens could pollinate male and female sims too.

All I need out of the Sims 4 is an apple/watermelon trick and lockable doors. Some way to get twins/triplets reliably that actually works (looking at you, Fertile) too, but beggars can't be choosers I guess.

Everything is still going well. My second generation are in their teens, the heir is about to age up to YA. Here are some of the things that are working for me:

Using other utility Sims, generate enough reward points to purchase useful potions like Sleep Replacement and Happy Potion. Sleep replacement provides you more time for skilling and aspiration completion.

Work Hard is essential for the Heir to fulfill the requirements before time runs out. Having lots of bathtubs helps ease stress.

 Graft Strawberry with Snapdragon for lots of simoleons.

Delay selecting a BFF until the last minute


Hmmm...maybe pomegranate is an ingredient for ambrosia because it is a fruit of the underworld.

You got the Persephone reference too? Glad to see you know your Greek mythology. :D

After reading these post, I quickly went to google and look up Persephone and pomegranate, thank you!  Although I'm not familiar with greek mythology, I love reading about them.

My heir is having problems with the Whiz Kid aspiration. She has completed everything and has had an A at school for three days in a row and it is still not registering and so the aspiration won't complete. Is there a trick to getting the aspiration to complete? I know I've read about other people having this problem but I couldn't find it on the forum.

She has gone to school very focused on these three days with her homework and her extra credit homework completed as well.

*edited, it's now Friday in my game and she only has two days until she ages up. I'm not sure if she will actually get another day at school before her birthday.

The trick is to reach that last stage on the aspiration before you get an "A" in school.  If you already have an "A" going in the last stage of the aspiration, the game will not recognize it.  You have permission to use the milestone cheat to complete the aspiration.

Oh rats! Well, least I know the 'trick' now. Thanks. I'll have to use the milestone cheat then as she was an A student even before she completed the first steps of this aspiration. That's so annoying though, I hate using cheats. Thanks for your quick reply.

In addition, you have to be IN the aspiration for it to recognize that you completed it.  If you are waiting on that requirement but are in a different aspiration when you get the A, it still won't complete.  Basically, make sure you're on Whiz Kid whenever you go to school, and make sure you finish the aspiration before you get an A.

Yeah, I did that for the whole aspiration. I never switched out of it at all. Trouble was Mackenzie already had an A even before I started it.

HELP PLEASE!!  My founder is trying to marry her spouse except it is a never ending loop!  They keep doing the wedding actions over and over and it's not registering as married although I got a notification saying it was a beautiful wedding.  How do I unstick this or do I just bag it, leave without saving, and do it over?

Quick question about birthday cakes: Can I cake my sims once the age bar says 0 days to age up, or do have to wait for the announcement that it's their birthday?

@Joria
Do you have a save just before the wedding?  I do not know how to solve your problem, but you have permission to go back to a previous save and redo the whole wedding.

@awaytobeunshaken
Only when the age bar says 0 days, bar all filled up with a light bubbly color, then you can age up your sim.  You do not have to wait for announcement.

Thank you, Nutella.  Fortunately, I had saved just before I even started planning the wedding.  Phew.

I'd been planning to have my Gen2 heir cook high-end dishes for her museum items after having fulfilled the Chef aspiration.
But I can't figure out the value of what she cooks
Is the only way to go to my shop and "Set for Sales" the dishes concerned?  Or does the value of museum items not matter? (I'll be lucky if I ever finish...)
Sorry for asking such a basic question.
