Hi all. Just recently I’ve gotten into Sims 2. I have the Ultimate Collection. And I’ve really been enjoying it, but I’ve ran into a pretty annoying bug. One of the children in my household has aged up into a teenager. The next morning comes around and it’s time for school, and he isn’t going. His younger, still child-age brother went fine. But he would get an interaction to go to school, and it cancels itself. I’ve tried the “walk to school” option numerous times, as well as “drive to school” on the car, and every time, the action cancels itself out. I searched to see if anyone else has had this bug and found a couple forums about it online, but everything that people suggested that ended up working for the person hasn’t worked for me. One said to delete the teen with moveobjects and reload the lot. I did that about three times, and nothing. One said to move the family out and bulldoze the lot. Well, since moving is complicated in this game and I didn’t want to lose my house, I moved them and the house to the Lots bin and then put them back on the land. Still hasn’t done anything. One said to make sure the needs of the teen is up and nothing is in the red, which of course is the first thing I did anyway.
I’m worried that this bug is gonna cause the teen to get in trouble/have his grades go down. One person with this problem said it sort of froze the grades and acted like the teen was still attending school and being a good student. But I’m concerned nonetheless. Any ideas of what to do would be very appreciated. But I’d appreciate anything that doesn’t have to do with resetting the game/messing with the game files... I really don’t trust myself with that, especially considering how this game is very specific with certain things and you can do one thing and bug the game out.
ETA: Oh yeah, I also don’t have any mods. And my teen sim is in private school, not sure if that makes a difference.
ETA2: I found out on a post I made about this same issue on ModTheSims that I actually screwed up my game by moving the house and family to the Lots bin. Sigh. So this issue isn’t the biggest worry anymore, so honestly this post can probably be disregarded.
