Hasn't it always been that way, though (ditto for older Sims with jobs), or is it just me? Large smile Wondering

Sims in other households won't go to work

★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.45.62.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play a different household and see if people in other households you have created go to work/school without switching to them and telling them to do so.
What happens when the bug occurs? Your sims that are not in your current household will not go to work or school when they need to.
What do you expect to see? The sims will stay home until you switch to them and tell them to go to work or school.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. It started happening after the most recent patch (PC 1.45.62.1020)

When I switch households, other sims in households that I have created will not go to work without me switching back to them and telling them to do so. Sims in the current household I am playing will go to work and school as they should.

Hi @smoughslayerng6

 

merged your post with similar report. Think it's essentially the same.

@SimGuruIcarus: Thanks for the clarification. Standard smile

 

It seemed like though when I was paying more attention to that, it seemed like I didn't see kids during school hours and stuff... (*SHRUG*)

 

I play with mods, though, so ignore my report. X-D

 

@smoughslayerng6: AFAIK, that doesn't hurt their performance, though.
