[NEEDS INPUT] Controlled Sims pulling out portable computers at libraries

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.67.45.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Visit a community lot assigned as a library.
What happens when the bug occurs? Your Sim occasionally pulls out a FreeRoam Portable Computing Device and uses it while visiting a library and while they are autonomous, even if there aren't such a computer in their inventory. When they are done using it, it simply disappears.
What do you expect to see? Your Sim not pulling out a portable computer from nowhere.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Pretty sure it began happening after installing Discover University.

It usually also affects other non-controlled Sims visiting the library.

What really makes me sad about it is that libraries computers are now ignored and "useless" (for autonomy purposes). Visit Willow Creek Archive is very bad because Sims will autonomously go to the nearest picnic table to use this random portable computer and ignore the library itself Frown

Not only the library computers, but mostly also the books as well (the only one that usually reads books now is the librarian), since it won't be long for Sims that visit the library to have the "Use Portable Computer" interaction pushed on them. But that may just be in my game.

I am having this issue as well. I spent all this time on my library just to have all of my sims run down the road to use the portable laptop on a picnic table. Have you found any mods that nix this? I can't seem to find the action in MCCC to block it. Some of the things they add to the game are so stupid tbf. Have them checkout a laptop from the library if that is what you are going for. My sims leave the lot immediately and it's so frustrating!
