Unlike previous games, children who neglect their homework still have a fair shot at keeping their school performance high by completing other tasks such as maintaining certain moods or building skills.
If a player's Sim misplaces a homework book or ages up to a child or teen off-screen, they can purchase a new homework book for §1 from a bookcase, or simply use another Sim's homework book.
However, homework can be finished while at school using the "Work on Late Homework" option.
However, if the teacher catches them, they may get an after school detention.
It is usually best to ensure that both the student and the mentor are in a good mood prior to beginning the interaction, and that no other interactions are in their queue until the homework has been completed.
There is no time limit on completing homework, but doing (or not doing) homework will affect a student's grades.This will fulfill the "Ask for Homework Help" want, and will allow them to do homework more quickly in the future.If Seasons is installed, students will do homework faster in the fall, or after drinking apple juice.Sims can also do someone else's homework, or copy someone's homework if that person already did it, although this can cause after school detention.Sims may stop doing homework if they are hungry, tired, have the "Stressed" moodlet, or have a low bladder meter.This is unlike The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories, where they would place the homework down.They can simply "Do Homework" on their own, "Do Homework With..." another friend of their age group, or "Get Help From" an older Sim on the lot.Once Sims become a child or teen on-screen, they will automatically receive a homework book appropriate for their life stage in their inventory, whether or not they have attended school in the past.Children will have a yellow book labeled "Grade School Homework" while teens will receive a blue book simply labeled "Homework".If a teen has unfinished homework when he or she is sent to college or becomes an adult, it will disappear.On school days, children and teens will come home with homework in their inventory.
