    Hi, I got 2 exceptions yesterday about ghosts not being culled properly. I later checked my family tree and the oldest (dead) uncle of my sim had disappeared. His daughter isn't on the tree any more but when I check her in the relationship panel she still appears as a cousin. I hope this issue can be fixed, because it's annoying, especially since i'm playing a legacy challenge.

    Thread on the sims forums EXTREME MEMORY LEAK IN SAN MYSHUNO? The OP of the Thread increased his power supply and fixed his issue. So while I was there I ask the Techs their to look into a Problem that a different Simmer was having. rosemow and I were trying to help, The following is what I found when I went to investigate what goes on in San Myshuno.

    I tested San Myshuno because of a different problem from another simmer. So I believe San Myshuno have a reason for being extra buggy, you Techs may want to have a closer look. in some areas of the city. I watched the whole day because this Simmer said his problem was food left about and full of trash in his area about 9 pm every day and it did not get better, it stayed.
    Now I could not recreate exactly his problem but I did see where the problem could be coming from.

    The area had two food stalls, some picnic tables, and a public bathroom. a busy area, so of course they will generate Sims.
    I used my camera to stay in areas that I wanted to watch. One thing it was so many people eating, to the point it was funny. But you would think they were getting that food from the food court right,...Wrong The food that the people had walking and standing about was not the food stalls food, So I looked around to find the source of the food, it was none. We know sims are generated from point( A) to point (B) and vice-versa.
    So I watch as they generated until they disappeared.
    Its an overabundance of people generating in the area, and whats worst they all had food. even the ones that did not have food, it generated in their hands in seconds. One man just stood there in the generating area, he ate one plate of food after another, nonstop for hours, his thought bubble would think of something new to eat. in a second he had it in his hand and was eating it. and with his empty plate he would place it with a slight bend and drop it on the ground, it would make the drop sound and then poof and not be visible on my screen. everyone that had food when they would reach the area of generating or degenerating would stop and drop the food in the same manner, before leaving. and if you wait long enough they will return with more food or drink. and this was many many townies. over and over.

    The Simmer that had the problem with all the food in the area littering his apartment area saw the food on his computer. On my screen it poofed.
    Also, normal townies that got food form the food stalls would sit at the tables, even if they leave food and go, you can direct your sim to pick up the food. but the other food you can not pick it up so it just stays there. This could be causing extra lag in San Myshuno.
    I did suggest to him to leave the area, travel out and return to clean this area, But if its a Bug the problem remains.

    I was wondering if you guys are going to add in more pets. Instead of just Cats and Dogs. Like for example Horses , Ducks , Rabbits , Hamster's , different kinds of Birds , Monkeys , Zebras , Lions , Tigers , Jaguars , etc. A lot of different animals that you would find in a Zoo. They should also make it so you can tame the animals. If you manage to tame wild animals. They should make it so you would be able to adopt these's wild animals. o:) o:) o:) o:) o:) o:) o:) Lets pray EA-Games hears the people. Lets hope they add those other animals into the game. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    hey, i know this has been briefly discussed on various forums but do you think the first sims would ever be put available as a complete collection like sims 2? or even a remaster of it? i know a few simmers here would love to be able to play the older games, up till recently i had every single sims game on disk until i had to sell them to unforseen circumstances :(

    Hi SimGuruNick!
    I've completely updated my game and have installed Cats & Dogs and I've noticed that now the modifyrelationship cheat is not working anymore. It only works for romance_main but not friendship_main. I've restarted my game and have done repairs. I've noticed many people saying the same thing. Is there a way this can be fixed, pretty please?!
    Thank you so much! :)

    I'm having some pretty funny routing issues with the lighthouse lot area with regards to fishing. My Sim can fish backwards, such skill and finesse.

    • Scobre
      Second picture won't let the Sim fish there.
  • TP1
    I can't play Cats and Dogs. The new update is telling me I have 391 families I'm in control of-I don't. I even deleted all of my previous existing families or moved them to other households and it still says I have 350. There are none there! I can't play in the new world at all. What do I need to do. There is nothing more to delete.

    Hi, I don't wanna bother, but I'm having a problem with the new update and I'm going crazy.
    So, I just installed the new update and I started the game just fine. Was looking at new stuff and wanted to change a family in cas, but the strange thing is, only a sim is in cas; i mean, there's no box with its name and stuff, there's no family members (not even the sim cas is showing me) in the little boxes down the screen and when I click the sim, I can't edit it either or change its clothes and face, nothing.
    I've tried going out to the main screen, but it doesn't let me either, like, I have to force the game to shut to go out. But everything outside cas is fine, I don't understand what's causing this, it was fine before the update, and I've tried this a couple of times now with the same result :( If you could help, I'd be so glad ;-; I wanna play so bad.

    Hello, my name is Alyssa. I just bought the new Cats and Dogs expansion packs, and I havent been able to play. I beleive ever since the patch on November 7, my game has been bugged. Whenever I try and make a new world, make a new household, or even try and edit pre-existing households, my game goes into the CAS but I am unable to do anything. The only thing that shows up is the sim, and the buttons on the top right corner (I also cannot click those buttons). The only way I am able to exit the game is by restarint or shuting down my comupter. I've been SO excited to play with cats and dogs on the sims 4, but now am unable to create new households. PLEASE HELP!!!

    I was very pleased with the repairs and new items in the 11/07/17 update for the Sims 4. However, as I was started playing the game after the update I noticed all of my Sims had lost their relationships. All relationships in my game went to ZERO! My sims don't know their family members or any household members, all are strangers. Has anyone else had this issue in the game?

    This is the dishwasher clipping issue. It's been an issue since they were patched in. Hopefully washers and dryers don't have the same thing happening. There was a mod to fix it in the meantime, but would be great if you guys could fix it too.

      I have a couple of other visual issues too like the necklaces that float on the neck and the decorations gold item remaining in the clutter sections since I started getting packs. I click every item and buy mode and it still doesn't go away.
    • SimGuruNick
      Could you also share a screenshot of the gold icon that remains? Thanks so much!!
    • Scobre
      Here are the two pictures with the visual issues. Hopefully this link works and lets you see them easier:
    • Scobre
      Eek, the gold icon is gone now after the patch. It oddly was Letters by the pile from City Living causing it. Thank you and your QA team so much for the patch.

    Hey there! Since I can't properly mention you on the EN forums (I'm from the RUS segment and have restrictions) it would be kind of you to help me with this htt p:// (I can't send the link correctly due to forum restrictions), at least I hope so, thanks in advance. <3

    Hi SimGuruNick, been a little while. Seems like I have also been experiencing this bug recently that has already been mentioned in the bug reports on EA by another Simmer. Happens on apartment lots for some reason there is no evidence for the detective career:
