[NEEDS INPUT] [DU] Incorrect played household count on world selection screen

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Guide

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? 1.58.63.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play a household in a university housing lot. Check the number of played households in the world on the world selection screen .
What happens when the bug occurs? The world selection screen displays an incorrect played household count. Played households living in a university housing lot don't count as a played household.
What do you expect to see? The correct played household count.
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? No

This can be easily fixed by changing the GetNumPlayerHouseholds function in gamedata.GameEntry.Neighborhood.NeighborhoodData from

 

protected function GetNumPlayerHouseholds() : int
{
 var _loc3_:NeighborhoodLotData = null;
 var _loc1_:uint = 0;
 var _loc2_:Array = this.lots;
 for each(_loc3_ in _loc2_)
 {
  if(_loc3_.mLotType == NeighborhoodLotData.MY_PLAYABLE_LOT)
  {
   _loc1_++;
  }
 }
 return _loc1_;
}

to

protected function GetNumPlayerHouseholds() : int
{
 var _loc3_:NeighborhoodLotData = null;
 var _loc1_:uint = 0;
 var _loc2_:Array = this.lots;
 for each(_loc3_ in _loc2_)
 {
  if(_loc3_.mLotType == NeighborhoodLotData.MY_PLAYABLE_LOT || (_loc3_.mLotType == NeighborhoodLotData.MY_PLAYABLE_UNIVERSITY_HOUSING_LOT || _loc3_.mLotType == NeighborhoodLotData.MY_PLAYABLE_UNIVERSITY_HOUSING_LOT_INCOMPLETE))
  {
   _loc1_++;
  }
 }
 return _loc1_;
}

so that it would also check the two new lot types in DU.

I can confirm that this is still not fixed as of game version 1.63.136.

This is still not fixed as of the 1.77.131 update. It's a small issue, but it bothers me how the world selection screen pretends that a played household doesn't exist just because they live on a university housing lot. Since Manage Households has no problem showing played households living on university housing lots, there is no reason that the world selection screen can't do the same.
