Fixed an issue in which homework assignment progression was too slow and timers might have been missing in some instances.


Fixed in Patch 1.63.133

@Stephieb95 : Since you have mods, try testing without them? (Move them to another place on your computer, delete localthumbcache.package from the Sims 4 folder in Documents, and Repair the game in Origin.)

I just tried this in one save and I can confirm that the timer for university homework (this was what I tried with) didn't seem to make any progress, but it did only take my sim about 1.5 hours to complete his homework (he is level 7 of Research and Debate, and per Carl's Sims 4 Guide, getting to level 3 of that skill allows your sim to 'complete their homework at an accelerated rate' )

 

Best regards,

Jennifer

Yes, my sim is quite skilled in research and debate, still didnt help hahah

 My sim was doing homework for over 7 sim hours, and only got to 25% in one od my saves. In another it went a bit faster.

@Stephieb95 Tested this for me it seems very jumpy. If I pause the game or fast forward, it's suddenly jumps forward.

If it takes them more than 75 minutes to complete their homework then something's wrong. Latest patch added a progress bar tied to the homework commodity and interaction should finish once it's fulfilled.
