[NEEDS INPUT] [DU] [V] Vampire Sims keep losing energy during university events

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.62.67.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Send a vampire Sim to certain campus events on sunny/partly sunny days
What happens when the bug occurs? Vampire Sim loses energy throughout event, even though they’re indoors
What do you expect to see? No energy loss once they vanish from screen into building
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

I’ve seen this happen with some similar events, but this was the worst. My vampire Sim went to give a guest lecture at university on a sunny day, and their energy kept dropping as though they were still outside throughout the lecture. Then when they reappeared after the lecture was done, they died of sun exposure instantly.

@Sylvaton To be sure, this is for rabbithole events ?

@crinrict ... I don’t actually know what you mean by “rabbithole event”.

@Sylvaton Rabbitholes are buildings where the Sims disappear into and you don't play them during that time. Like the lecture hall. As opposed to something that takes place on another lot and you play them.

@Sylvaton and you see this only for Uni rabbithole events or also for others like when they go to work normally ?

I've only seen it for a couple of uni events -- this "give a guest lecture" one, and I think for my graduation on another vampire Sim, and I feel like at least one other similar event but I can't remember it now. Never for regular classes, though. Oh! I remember -- I think it was giving my presentation, maybe? Another common thread is that I start on campus for these events, as opposed to going from home.

@Sylvaton OK. Thanks for all the info.

I'll mark this as needs input to see if anyone else has this issue. Haven't personally tested.

Re: Vampire Sims keep losing energy during university events

★★ Guide
@Sylvaton Have you tried drinking a Sunlight Reversal cocktail before doing these events? Won't fix the problem but it should help your vampires live through it.

You learn the Sunlight Reversal recipe at level 11 of Vampire Lore.
