@Reveena Test this with the biology book and it appears in the bookself for me.

Does it matter what book you buy ? Did the Sim finish reading on her own or was it canceled ?

Sims losing textbooks

★★★★★ Novice

My current Sim has lost several textbooks along the way. First one just glitched and fell thru the "floor" outside of a rabbit-hole building to be forever gone (why my sim put it down is beyond me). I purchased another text book, used it to study before class. After class it was no longer in my inventory. This happened several times over the course of the term week. The next term started and I was studying a bit in the student union waiting for class. Just before class, I tell sim to stop studying so she gets up,walks to the book shelves and puts the textbook in there. Out of curiosity, I open the shelves and discover all 4 of the textbooks I had purchased. I find this behavior odd since she attends school from home and never went there during the first term.

 

The textbooks should be flagged similarly as the various 'Homeworks' where they are placed back in the Sims inventory when done.

 

I think this is more of an annoyance than a bug. But if it is indeed a bug, I'll submit a ticket.

I have had this exact issue multiple times with they Physics textbook. I have used the money cheat to add 700 simoleons and re-purchase it, but if I didn't do this I would be out of luck. Hoping this gets fixed soon. I'm not sure if another student is stealing them or if it really is just glitching out.

 

If it's another sim, maybe we could make them unable to use another sim's book (the way I am unable to put someone else's property in my sim's inventory)

 

It's worth mentioning that my sim has not always autonomously put it away in the bookshelf. If he doesn't put it in the bookshelf it disappears every time.

I can tell you it is not other sims stealing your books. My sim lives off campus without roommates, so there is no one to steal the book.

 

When I purchase the textbook via the bookshelf it never shows up, and my 700 simoleons are just gone. When I purchase the text book through the computer option it appears in the sims personal inventory. They can use it as long as they do not put it away. When the sims leave it on the table they can still use it and it does not dissapear. Also when they put it in their personal inventory it does not dissapear. It only dissapears when they put it in the bookcase. So this seems to be a problem with the bookcase. 

 

In case the type of text book matters, I used the computer science and physics books.

 

It is a very annoying bug because the text books are so expensive.

My Sims don't even get to use their textbooks. I purchased some at the bookshelf because my sim start mysteriously failing all her classes in spite of completing all homework assignments and projects (this is apparently a thing) and they never turned up at all. If I go into the purchase menu I can see that I own copies but they're not on the bookshelf, not in anyone's inventory or anywhere around the house. I purchased and immediately looked for them, no one would have even had a chance to move them. I'm kind of regretting buying the University expansion.
