Sim not gaining alchemy skill?
« on: April 30, 2016, 09:48:19 PM »
I just got Supernatural yesterday (very cool, btw) and I was so excited to get a sim of mine learn alchemy. So i had one of my vampire sims learn alchemy. They got to learn it up to level 2, but then the skill bar just won't go up? Like it just won't and whether i'm at the alchemy station or reading a book it won't go up at all. Help please? Thank you :)
I have no idea what to put here.

Forgive me if I've repeated what you have tried already. Have you tried resetting your household or town? Another way to "reset" the household is to evict them and them move them back into their house. Link below tells more about it.

I've done what you've said and I've sort of figured out what's happening. It's currently 1 AM in my game so my vampire sim has that vampire moodlet thingy which makes her learn skills faster. When it got to 6 AM (when the moodlet expires), the skill bar wouldn't go up anymore. Is this normal? Do i just have to wait for it to be night again or what? Thank you :)

I've only played with vampires a little bit, but the moodlet does expire and may have an effect on their learning things. So it may be normal. They do learn faster at night due to them being night creatures :)

But after the moodlet expired, the skill bar never went up again, but I haven't waited until night time again to learn it. Do you think I should do so? :)

Sure go ahead and try it. It's been a little while since I've played with a vampire. So it may be possible that they are learning - skill bar does go up, but way slower than if they were studying at night.

So my sim can only learn alchemy at night and it's not even going up during the day, so I guess that's pretty much it. I'll just have her learn alchemy at night.
