I get this when I exit to "Manage worlds" instead of main menu or exiting game completely. I think mine is intentional though.


Hmm. I've noticed that before too, actually. Standard smile It's "Just go to Manage Worlds", right? (By the way, going to Manage Worlds without saving, and then going back in the household you're playing, is a good way to fix certain issues like stuck Sims and similar stuff. Wink )

@StarryMight Thank you for the info. Never know when one needs to do something like that, especially with this 'game'.

@StarryMight Exactly what it says. As in leaving the game, shutting it down, and going elsewhere to check email, bids on evil bay, reviewing a book I've written that's being published, and other non-Simsian activities. Later was about 2-3 hours later.

@crinrict Houston, we have a problem. I don't know what RAR is, let alone be able to make one. I don't do either google or one drive, and not sure how to get there.

@OldeSimsFan Rar is a compression/archiving format like zip. You need either 7z or winrar to create them (just google). Then you should be able to upload the archive

@OldeSimsFan : I see. Well, I finally patched my game and am currently running a test save based on the World of WIPs save from Mod the Sims, so I'll let you know what I notice.

Sorry if this is a bump, but after doing a test save game for the last few days, I definitely did get this to trigger at least a couple of times on the same household. In one case, it jumped ahead 20 Sim Minutes. In another case, it jumped ahead an hour. (Both definite occurrences that I still remember happened in Forgotten Hollow [Vampires] if that helps.) I also may have had other, less severe occurrences.

 

However, the amount of time (if it happens) seems random, and the issue itself seems to be hit or miss, as well, with the clock only being a little ahead at worse. Also, Pausing Live Mode before saving and doing Exit to Main Menu may or may not help, I'll have to do more testing as to what exactly triggers it or not.

 

One thing I'll say, though...since it happened at least once or twice with the game Paused (with my Sims more-or-less still paused in their actions), I wonder if some sort of weird game clock time warp occurring during a loading screen whenever it happens is what's actually going on. Wondering

 

I learned a while back from the creator of a mod for loading screen autonomy that when you're loading a lot, your Sims are already doing stuff behind the scenes, and if they're standing outside their house when you go in, it's because they reset during the loading screen (the mod was made to alleviate that particular issue). I hope this is helpful somehow. Standard smile
