This is what another simmer helpfully suggested on another thread
"When it's almost time for school (around 7:50) make your window veeeery tiny. That way the game will snap back to it's usual rate. It might get stuck for a few seconds but that's it. When the kids are at school you can enlarge the window again :smile:
I know it's an annoying workaround but at least it helps"
Hello :) It was great that the Doctor career issue was fixed in today's patch! It has been affecting many simmers, and like you, simmers haven't wanted to cheat, but have needed to, so that their sims could progress to the next career level.
