Sims living in dorms should no longer receive high bills to live there.

 


Fixed in Patch 1.62.67

 

I don't know if the fix works if you are already receiving bills or if it's just not happening newly anymore.

@Tles30 Does it matter which lot ? After how many terms did you start getting bills ? I'm almost at the end of my second and I didn't get any.

That’s just the lot I was on to be honest. I’m on my third term and have had bills every term. I’m having to cheat money to be able to keep the power on

This happened to me as well, I was playing the pre-made Best of Friends household in the Britechester dorm and I got a bill of 3000 simoleons.

Same thing happened to me. Live in the Drake Hall and was asked to pay bills of 2500 simoleons in the second semester which my sim can’t afford.

Same thing happened to me was at the start of my second term and got a bill for over $4000. At Foxbury institute in the tidal tower.

I'm also encountering this problem. I didn't run into this till I was in the Drake dorm during my last term, $3800 simoleans due on bills. I just had to cheat money to pay it off since I didn't want it impacting my savings for that particular sim (she's been saving up so she could get a nice place after graduation).

 

I tried it without mods, still have bills due, as well

Same thing, although just once, not every week.

 

My sims are twins and they moved to Drake Hall from the household that still has their parents. A couple of days into the first term and they suddenly got bills for about 3000. I wanted to test if it was a mixed message aimed to the parents or something, since didn't believe that the dorms would get bills, but the electricity definitely went off, so I paid the bills and got them back. 

 

Unlike many others here, I did not get the bills more than that one time. The twins graduated just now (full schedule, so three terms) and those were the only bills they got.

@crinrictTles30 I am affected by this, they cut off the power and asked me to pay 8000 simoleons. I cheated my money just to get rid of it, I couldn't do anything in my dorm
