Re: [OPEN] Sims return from Work/School early after loading screen

  • If a Sim is at work or school on the day of a holiday, they will no longer return home from work/school early if another Sim in the household travels somewhere during the holiday.

Taking feedback if this is still occurring for anyone (with or without holidays)

 

Fixed in Patch 1.47.49

If this is truly fixed in 1.47.49 I'll be so happy! I haven't been able to play for months because there was no point when I kept losing so much progress every time I decided not to be tied to the house all day.

Since getting the patch, I've started having issues with children coming back from school early without anyone leaving the lot or having a holiday. I have five in one household, and currently they just come back one at time rather than all at once. I don't have any mods/cc running.

I think it started around 9, then continued roughly every half hour until all but one were home by 11:30.

Currently having this issue on the PS4. 

 

I've tried 3 different times to send one Sim strawberry picking on Rebate Day while the other Sim was at work. I even sent him to 3 different lots. Every time she came home as soon as the loading screen ended. Every time she had worked less than an hour.

 

I've only owned the Sims 4 for 2 weeks and only got Seasons yesterday plus my PS4 is almost always connected to the internet so I could be running the latest patches but I haven't figured out how to double check.

 

ETA: Apparently the only save I had the last time was AFTER she left for work on Rebate Day. When I reloaded she came home early again, this time after just minutes (Sim time) of work. So she lost a full day of wages in the "furniture on the lawn" stage of my legacy run.

Hi @sefned

 

could you please create a new thread for console. This is fixed for PC.

 

Thanks

Re: [OPEN] Sims return from Work/School early after loading screen

★ Guide

@crinrict

This issue seems to be back on PC.

As I loaded up my game to test the speech-watching issue, my Sim who was at work when I had saved and exited came back home early.

12-26-18_11-01-10 PM.png

I loaded back in at 7:39PM in-game, and immediately got a notice that the Sim had come home from work, even though they aren't off until 9:00PM.

This came with a performance hit and of course only enough pay for the amount of time they had worked.

 

Here's the save it's happening in, just in case it's needed:

Was it a one off or does it happen every time you travel ?

There's still a few issues around (especially with lunch packs)

I'd say, if it still happens regularly, try different scenarios when it still happens and make a new thread.

The lunch pack one already has a thread and we also have this one: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Sim-wants-to-leave-work-early-message/m-p/7188759#... which is a bit different.
