@imonlyhereforsim Hi there. I’ve experienced this school bug with a child and the only thing that worked for me was aging the kid up (to teen) and then I put it back to child using cas full edit mode cheat. I’ve played several hours of gameplay since then and it still holds. Maybe it will help you too :-)

Sim won't go to work

★ Novice

So randomly today, I was playing sims 4 and my sim stopped going to university and extracurriculars which was odd... But I carried on as it was near the end of the degree and I could study at home and I figured it would sort itself when the sim got a job. 

Well, sim got a job and he doesn't go to work. I have opened and closed the game, uninstalled mods, tried to change into work outfit before going but I can't find an option to do this? On scrolling previous posts apparently changing into the outfit should do the trick but I can't find the option on a dresser or anywhere else? Am I missing anything?

My sim wont go to university class or his activity. The button for "go to class" and " go to activities" is barely clickable. when I try to click it, its like it gets half clicked. and no action bubble pops up on my sims task hub.  I moved my sims to different houses. I used testingcheats and debug reset. I removed all mods.

Sim won't go to school/work

★★ Newbie

One of my Sims won't go to school or to work. I have tried everything that I've seen on other posts where people have a similar problem. I've tried ageing him up, moving him to a different lot and sending him from there, moving the entire household,moving the mods folder to desktop etc suggestion and repairing the game. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks

Sim will not go to work or school

★★★ Novice

Hello, I am having a fairly major issue which started last night. My sim was supposed to go to university class, but when the time for class came they cleared queue and stopped what they were doing, but didnt move or actually go to their class.

I had another class scheduled later the same day and it happened again. The "Go To Class" button makes the sound when clicked, but nothing happens. It does not add to queue or make the sim respond.

No other actions have been disturbed, so I attempted to pick up an odd job and see if they could do it, but the same thing happened. Clear queue, then not going.

I tried moving the sim out then having them return, and the same issue happened with an odd job the next day.

I am not using any mods or cc.

Please help me fix this, as I can't play the game if the sims can't go to work or anything.
