University Sims unable to attend classes after Eco Lifestyle pack installed

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

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? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except Moshino Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play an existing household with at least one sim currently attending either university - created before installing the new Eco Lifestyle pack.
What happens when the bug occurs? When it is time for the university sim to go to class the action gets cancelled preventing the sim from going to class. Even when you click Go to class, they will walk a few paces forward and then stop and the action is cancelled continously.
What do you expect to see? The university sim should attend class normally on their own or on request by clicking Go to class
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. Installed the latest patch on 3rd June 2020 Installed the Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle pack today

This issue has also occured after saving and restarting my game and also after a full power down of my PC, in order to flush all data from CPU and memory caches, as Windows never fully wipes down these caches on shutdown.

 

My system specifications for reference:

 

Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz (4 Cores, 8 Threads)

32GB RAM 25.5GB Available (on idle)

2x SATA SSD 512GB 

2x nVM SSD 256GB

NVidia GeForce 1080 GTX

NVidia GeForce 1050 Ti (Used for PhysX processing)
Windows 10 Pro (Retail)

 

**Edit reason:** Because I entered the wrong date for the previous Sims 4 patch

@Romesh0787 Tested my existing save and had no troubles going to class.

Does it matter if you live at dorm ? Does it work if you move out and into another house ?

Hi Crin,

Forgot to mention my sim goes to university from her own home. I haven't tried a sim who lives in university accommodation. I'll try what you suggested and report back.

@SimStoppable2020 Does this also happen on a fresh save but only that current one ?

@crinrict It has only happened on the current game playing. Once saved and rebooted, the bug solves itself once, for the sim to be able to go to work or school. once they have returned, the bug is back.

@SimStoppable2020 The bug of them still being at work or that they don't go ? Or do they not go, cause they are stuck at work ?

@crinrict It says they are at work (Their picture shows being at work) but they are still on the home lot, will not respond to any request to go to work. That save is not loading at all now, keeps saying there is an issue and to reboot.
