[NEEDS SAVES] Time inconsistencies when Sim travels

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

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 of them except Moschino stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Travel within the world that came with Discover University
What happens when the bug occurs? Every time the Sim travels to an event or different lot, time jumps in game either forward or backwards from pre-travel time. This can make the event have already passed or not have begun yet.
What do you expect to see? Time to be forward moving in a consistent fashion with how The Sims 4 has worked before.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Update 1.58.63.1010 and installation of Discover University

I am trying to assist a friend who is having this issue by filling this out since I was unable to find any other reports of this issue online.

This has also happened occasionally to me after installing big patches. You can try repair game and starting a new save. Sometimes a certain lot (in my case a restaurant) seems to be corrupted and has to be changed.

★★ Guide

I dont gave DU yet but time traveling has been a problem in this game forever. Doesn't matter the event, your household starts early or really late. Nighttime events that start at 9pm for example and end at 5am, when you return home, it will be 10pm the previous night or 1am or something instead of 5:30 am or whenever you got home. 

 

Its weird.

I have seen this as well. If I have my sim leave his house at like 5 pm he'll arrive as late as an hour to the selected lot. It's not super detrimental but it can be annoying at times.

@nutellagurgal Do you also have time changes when travelling ?

There's a thread on this here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Time-inconsistencies-when-Sim-travels/m-p/8432053 and as going to CAS also involves a loading screen, it could be the same issue.

@crinrict I didn't notice time changes when traveling so far, but I'll keep an eye out for it.
