With this mod, Sims can get many memories of the type [Sim] Went to College. Originally, one Sim can get only one memory of that type. That was leading to parents getting a memory only of their child who went to college first (and no one else).

No Trash Memories by BoiledOil conflicts with this mod. If you want to prevent your Sims from getting [Sim] Went to College memories, just don't install this mod and make sure this memory is disabled in your version of No Trash Memories. In other cases, make sure this mod loads after BoiledOil's.

Thanks so much for this fix! :lovetruc
I noticed that this also happens with Sim Got Into Private School (+ rejected memories). Only the parents get memory of that.. and the other family members don't... which is weird too, lol.

I actually forgot that sims could even get this memory, all my sims get their one and only "sim went to college" memory for their oldest sibling and then never again, haha.

@Jawusa You're welcome. Originally, not only parents get memories about Sims who went to college. The problem was one Sim could get only one memory of that type – that's what the parent example is about.
I've checked the memory about getting into private school. It looks like it was intended that only parents could get it. Perhaps it is not the best solution but I also don't think all relatives would be interested in it. This thought can be also applied to university memories, to be honest…

Oh, okay, thanks for having a look into that.
I thought that it might be glitched as well, since it's the same issue after all, so I just wanted to point that out.

So if I have the vanilla version of BO's No trash memories then this mod is fine to install as long as it loads afterwards, correct? Just want to confirm.
