I am putting together a homeworld college campus and so far most everything works: enrolling your active sims, enrolling inactive sims, leveling 7 of them up to level 2 student for each of the 7 majors to be professors, installing university rabbithole rugs, creating a student union with class room for the active class lectures and student service booth for the Meet & Greet, installing a nerd shop, university hangout and library for specific majors' class activities, and graduation.
I have three questions though:
1) Student Union Meet & Greet: When I put it in the campus lot and assigned the whole lot as a student union and added the lot event marker, the active lecture classes did show up, but the professors didn't. Also the meet & greet was kind of wonky. So now I converted the home across the street from the campus as separate student union lot, I also put the lot event marker like I saw in the original Student Union from the Sims University world.
The Meet & Greet works for the most part - I can get all the freebies from the student services booth, read the welcome and curriculum messages and even talk to a professor (although it wasn't the professor assigned to my sim's major - the other professors may have been there, but I only tried it once)
My question is: In the original student union in the sims university world, the student services booth automatically appears during the day of the Meet & Greet (first day of semester) and then no longer appears for the rest of semester. How do I make that happen in my homeworld? Does it have to do with that lot event marker? I heard about "second layouts" in build mode but I don't know what that is? I have read about the seasonal marker but I haven't found anything about using the lot event marker. When I shift+ctrl+click or shift+click, none of the options give any hint of how to use it unlike the seasonal marker.
2) Graduation Invitations: My sim finished his major and was graduating on the last Saturday of the semester. The notification to invite friends and family popped up. I tried to click on it, but no menu popped up for me to officially invite anyone. I'm assuming it's because they're all already in this world, but since there was no official way, they weren't automatically pushed to come to the graduation. Is there a way to fix this?
3) Cap and Gown: So my sim went to his graduation anyway but the problem was, he didn't change into cap and gown for the ceremony. I did have careers filtered out in MasterController and wondering if this might be the cause for him not switching to it? Is there a way to fix this as well? Would I have to put the cap & gown outfit together manually?
Everything else works though and I really love it so much! He even got to choose the sixth trait for graduating. I could have gotten a seventh from one of the social cliques but I didn't care about trying to level that up. I just need to see if I can get the last three things I talked about fixed somehow. Please help if you can, thanks!
