[NEEDS SAVES] [DU] Sims won't autonomously go to Uni class if not on active lot
[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All DLC, except for Eco Living
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? - Have at least one sim in university and one other sim who's not in uni. - Before it's time for class, take the non-student sim to a different lot and wait.
What happens when the bug occurs? On the icon for the student sim left at home, the warning will show that they're late for class, but they will never go to class on their own.
What do you expect to see? I expect sims to go to class on their own, even if they're not on the active lot.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I think this relates to the issue of sims not taking care of their needs when inactive because of the weird way the university classes are implemented. They will go to their afterschool activities autonomously, presumable because it's considered a job, but they won't go to class unless they're on the lot I'm playing when it's time for class.


I found this by having a mom in the science career. When I go with her to work, the kids won't go to their university classes, so I constantly have to jump back to the home lot to send them to school, and then go back to the work lot to continue mom's work. But it's also an issue if you take any of the sims in the family to any other lot. The students left at home won't go to class unless told to, or unless they're on the active lot.
