[NEEDS INFO] [DU] NPC Roommates at Drake Hall - No Autonomy

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.58.63.1210
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Discover University, Island Living, Get Famous, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Moschino Stuff, Laundry Day, Toddler Stuff, Fitness Stuff, Vintage Glamour Stuff, Backyard Stuff, Kids Room Stuff, Romantic Garden Stuff, Movie Hangout Stuff, Cool Kitchen Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, Luxury Party Stuff, Holiday Celebration Pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? This happened after I did I complete renovation of Drake Hall residence at Britechester University. When my sim moved in there for a new term, most of the NPC roommates seemed to have very little autonomy and would just stand in one spot until they passed out, soiled themselves and ultimately died of starvation.
What happens when the bug occurs? NPC roommates at Drake Hall can't seem to take care of themselves and are constantly passing out, soiling themselves and starving to death. They spend hours on end standing in one place.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see the NPC roommates take care of themselves, get their own food, use the toilet, the shower and beds.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Discover University

@yokozuna4ever Did you put any CC in the dorm ? Do you have issues if you don't edit the dorm ?

 

There's a similar thread here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-PC/Discover-University-Stuck-Gameplay/m-p/8434829 so maybe something is blocking them in the way you built.

It only started happening after I renovated Drake Hall. The first term, before I renovated, the sims were acting normally. Then, after the renovation, it happened. It only affected the NPC sims in the dorm, not my playable sim. But she got fairly depressed after watching all her roommates die one by one. I tried playing 2 terms like this, the same thing happened both terms. I moved my sim out of Drake Hall for the next term.

@yokozuna4ever I think it's possible to upload dorms to the gallery, right ? If so, could you share your build ?

 

 

----------

 

Tagging as Needs Info cause I'm curious what folks did that have this

 

  • Did you edit the Dorms ?
  • Did you add any CC ?
  • Is your Sim behaving normally or does he freeze ?
  • How many Sims are in your household ?
  • Anything else ?

OK, I uploaded it to the gallery. My account ID is Yokozuna4ever and I only have 3 uploads, one of which is the Drake Hall reno. Also I did not add any custom content. I had 1 sim in my household.

@yokozuna4ever Finally getting around to test your dorm and this is my Sims first semester so I don't know if changing the dorm mid term has anything to do with it.

I see one Sim that seems to be stuck and I wonder if it has something to do with the double beds and the side to the wall being assigned to the Sim.

Could you maybe try if it makes a different if you always assign the side that's not on the wall ?
