View Full Version : Sims 3 Ambitions Fix Mod?

(Sorry if this is the wrong thread. Haven't posted here in years! DX)

I I was looking into getting back into Sims 3 lately and one expansion I remember loving was Ambitions.
However I also remember the careers being buggy like the objective counter not counting or completing to early and your fellow Firefighters not helping you etc.
So I was wondering if anyone has ever made a mod that fixes the interactive careers? Especially the objective counter.

Were you playing in Bridgeport?

1) There is a multi-rabbithole glitch in Bridgeport (and other towns that have multi-rabbithole buildings) that impacts rabbithole career opportunities, documented on The Sims Wiki: https://sims.fandom.com/wiki/Bridgeport#Multi-Rabbit_Holes_Glitch
That's now solved by installing the mod "Nraas Overwatch" here: https://www.nraas.net/community/Overwatch
2) I also heard that it is impossible to complete the Private Investigator active career in some cases, here is a 2013 thread with details and tips to handle the bugs: https://forums.thesims.com/en_us/discussion/525174/my-sims-in-the-investigator-career-the-cases-dont-work

Hope that helps! Glad to hear you're back to playing TS3, it's one of the best games ever.

True MissPat especially we often got an opportunity for psychic/medium sims (to help to find the llama) that never works. Nobody could fixed that :'(.

Ambitions can be pretty buggy, but some of that I believe is intentional. Such as the other firefighters not helping you in the firefighter career. I seem to remember igazor mentioning once that the game can only handle the active sim/family in that particular case.

The role of the other firefighters if the disaster is within their scheduled work time is to stay back at the firehouse, scream into their walkie-talkies, and run back and forth frantically flapping their arms and waving maps all over the place -- and then clock out and go home at quitting time even if the disaster is still being coped with. They at least recognize that a disaster is taking place, or they are supposed to. EA never really intended them to be truly helpful.

So much like EA exec's, art imitating life....
