I traveled to China, bought the recipe, and then traveled to Egypt. But now I have no "travel time" display, and no option to "return home" from the Travel menu on the phone. I tried traveling back to my home, but that didn't work right, either. It thought my hometown was another vacation world and asked me where I wanted to live. I quit without saving.
Reading this forum I found this advice from the ever-helpful Igazor:
So is that what I did wrong?Â If I travel again while traveling, I need to travel BACK to the first world and THEN return home? I saved before I left Egypt so I'm going to try traveling back to China right now.In fact, even if you were in vacation mode you could travel sims to a third world (a vacation within a vacation) as long as you have them retrace their steps backwards when finished and don't change active households to ensure that no one gets abandoned in a foreign world without a proper Change Hometown being run on them. That isn't what you are doing, so just mentioning it for future reference.
