How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Wait until Sims start autonomously to do homework.

[OPEN] Autonomous Homework/Extra credit freezes game

[ Edited ]

Hi I just noticed that my game locked up when my teen Sim autonomously chose to do extra credit work. It's not a huge problem because it can be cancelled, and it doesn't effect child sims.

everyone in the household freezes, the game keeps going - music still plays, trees sway etc but the little Sims lock up until I cancel the teens action.

it does affect child Sims too, but from what I can tell it only locks up when other Sims want to interact with the child that's chosen to do extra credit work.

Example, child decides to do extra credit and all the other Sims around him freeze, I cancel his action and all the other Sims spring back into action. He then decides to have another go at the extra credit work but this time all the other Sims keep doing what they're doing, until mother Sim wants to hug him, then it all locks up again.

[OPEN] Autonomous Homework freezes game

If this has been reported already, sorry, I couldn't find a thread.

 

My child invited another child home from school. The guest started doing homework and everything froze. I could not ask her to leave and the parents never came home from work. I let it run for 4 or 5 Sim hours until my child was in the red on everything. I had to exit the game and I did not save changes. (I hate losing progress!) When I next opened the lot, the child left on her own, I was able to queue actions for my child, and the parents came home from work as scheduled.

 

I don't use any mods or CC. I have the holiday expansion, Spooky Stuff, and Go To Work.

 

Thanks,

-Jennifer.

It's a known issue. I've been handling it with single threads: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4-Bug-Reports/Performance-Issues-Compiled-List-of-Threads/td-p/509... but I'll check if those can be merged together for this particular issue .. tomorrow .. after I got some sleep
