This has always happened to me too. It's becoming increasingly frustrating that it hasn't been fixed in a patch. It happens with every sim, in every save without fail

This has been like this for awhile and there's another thread somewhere where they freeze to death cause they are in work clothing. Think there's another thread for that.

Need to check on this later.

I’ve also noticed this with my Drifter Challenge save (which is one of my current Let’s Plays). I can only control my main sim and her husband always stays outside regardless of the weather and I have to have my sim ‘call over’ to get him in the house. I don’t remember it being like that in the prior generation.  It happens all the time, so can be seen in any of my videos. He’s also not very good at autonomous self care in general, again much worse than any of my prior generation spouses, but I wasn’t sure if it was specific to this sim or something else. 🙂

 

Thanks and regards.

Re: Sims won't use autonomy after coming back to lot after work?

★★ Guide
I was noticing this as well.
I had a family of 6 Sims in an apartment, each with their own jobs.

When they came back from work, they'd just idle in front of the elevator as soon as they came back until one of their needs got low enough to trigger them to do something about it.
Once they actually get inside, they seem to do their usual things, watching movies, playing games, surfing the web, but as long as they're just standing there fresh home from work, nothing.
Thankfully at least they were "inside" as far as weather was concerned, but I'm also seeing this while playing as one of my house-living families, and it's really annoying.

Re: Sims won't use autonomy after coming back to lot after work?

This happens on PS4 also. The sims just idle outside the house doing nothing for hours if you don't catch them when they get home from work or school. Even Vampires will do this and stand there burning in the sun whether coming home from work or school. The vampires will stand there and die or regular sims let their needs go into the red. The only time they don't idle is when they get the "run inside" from inclement weather.

This has got worse for me since Island Living – they've always stood outside for a long time but now if you leave them it's literally Sim hours, plenty of time to freeze or burn to death. It makes doing an ISBI challenge practically impossible. if there's no controllable Sim in the house to persuade them in with a 'chat here' or 'call over' they'll stay there until they die.

Same thing here. Haven't used any mods.

 

The thing is my house is build in the back of the lot, not at the front where they arrive from work. So it might be that? I'm too busy to try and place the house closer right now, but I'll let you know if I do and works.

This happens to me too in apartments, they just stop in the hallway and their needs are getting redder and redder until you active the sim yourself. It's hugely annoying when you got a few sims!
