[OPEN] [DU] Accused Of Cheating On Homework

[ 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? Most updated? 1.58.63.1010. Everything is current.
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Not sure. I have a young adult sim who lives at home with his parents and is going to Britechester. He does his homework on his own, and yet when his parents talk to him, they say how disappointed they are in him that he cheated on his homework. He has not done that. It happens every day at least once.
What happens when the bug occurs? See above.
What do you expect to see? Not being accused of something I haven't done!
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. Updated to Discover University.

I don't have one, but will try and screen capture it next time.

It says 1.58.63.1010 on the bottom of the start screen.

 

Thanks, Crin!

 

FYI, it does happen once a day with both of his parents "I am disappointed in you, [Simname], for cheating on your homework" or something like that. He never does. I never select any of the cheat options and they say it once a day.

I am so thankful I found this thread, because this is happening to me too in the exact same circumstances (uni student living at home, both parents scold for cheating that I have not directed when she returns home) and I thought I was missing something.

Same problem with Sim living in the dorm Britechester when going to classes I get a notification she cheated on homework. No mods/cc. 3rd Sim in a row that does that, never played a student that didn't. Didn't try Foxbury. Game version: 1.58.63.1010 (64bit)

 

Edit:

Tried again in Foxbury because 1st time I chose a dorm that already had one active student and got quickly overwhelmed. But bug didn't appear. Now with my sim as only active the bug is there again, in Foxbury too.

I am also having this issue. My sim hasn't cheated, yet her mother just now accused her of cheating on her homework. I play a vanilla game, no mods.

@Cabelle1863 Is this also for a uni student or a child/teen in the household ?

Same issue here YA, College student; the mom has come on campus at least twice to "scold for cheating on assignment". Once per term. His step-dad did show up, but didn't accuse him of cheating.

@southaltan Just wanting to make sure it's only for uni students and not also for kids (although there's nothing to cheat there)
