View Full Version : Aspiration meter level not recognised
23rd Apr 2008, 07:05 PM
I have a problem where when a sim achieves platinum aspiration, either by fulfilling a lifetime aspiration or by filling the new freetime aspiration meter (have tried both individually and together), they are no longer able to use aspiration rewards as they always result in negative effects. Can anyone throw any light on this?

This could be the result of a Freetime bug- basically the aspiration meter gets borked. I think I heard that a solution to this is to use the ReNuYu orb to set your sim to Grilled Cheese aspiration, and then set it back again. I've never encountered this personally, but I'm patched so maybe the patch fixed it.

You're right Simsample. It is a freetime bug. Twojeffs has a fix here:
http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php/topic,6.0.html It's the freetime aspiration fix. He moved it to the deadpool because the patch fixed it. But, since EA pulled the patch, you can still use it if you are unpatched. Just remember to remove it when/if EA releases another patch.
I'm using it at the moment, because I didn't use the pulled patch (my sims had made custom items, and I didn't want to deal with the headache the first patch caused. heh)
