View Full Version : Generations bugs - daycare and boarding school
8th Jun 2011, 02:33 AM
Have you guys encountered this, or am I just doing something wrong?
I have a family with two teens and one child enrolled in Smugglesworth boarding school. For some reason, they all came home when the oldest son graduated. Now they can't seem to go back to boarding school. They never get picked up and when I click on their school tab, it says "Enrolled in boarding school." I also can't use the phone to enroll or remove them from boarding school.
My Sim got married and had a child in short order. She's in the daycare profession and got 10 days off of work. It dwindled to 6 days but then it never moves. No matter how many days pass, she still has 6 days until she gets back to her daycare job.

Boarding school unrelated but Graduation related. When my teen graduated his brother (a child in normal school) got 2 days off school for the Graduation and had the Proud Sibling moodlet .. Why two days off? I have no idea. But it could explain the other children coming home from school.

The boarding school bug is the bane of my exsistance. However you can work around it, go to the cheat console and type moveobjects on and delete the sim and it'll send them back to boarding school, but you might have to do this a buncha times! It seems that they come home whenever something happens like I've had them come home for graduations of other sims, weddings, during teen parties and what seems like other random times. I can't stand the day care profession because the first time I tried it I kept getting the teleporting baby bug :~(

I sent a Sim to boarding school, and when nothing happened--no progress reports, and I couldn't even click on her icon to see what was going on with her--I unenrolled her. She came home, but now she's all messed up. She can't go to school because it says school is not in session for her. She went to sleep in her own bed and the game acted as if she was a new character--"Sleep in Jeanette's bed?"--she learned to drive before she left for boarding school, and now that she's home, one of her wants is to learn to drive, but neither of the parents has the option to teach her. I'm just waiting for her to age up so I can kick her out of the house.
