      Hello
      I am sorry that you are having this issue :(

      Try shutting down your computer completely. Start the computer again, then log into Origin, and try to launch the game and see if that helps.

      Repairing the game may help. To do that, go to games library in Origin, right click on the sims 4 picture and click repair

      Try turning off origin in-game and see if that helps. To do that, go to Game Library in Origin . Right click on The Sims 4 picture. Click on “Game Properties”. Then untick the box that enables origin in-game

      Try starting the game in windowed mode

    I know you likely won't remember since it was a post from back in 2015, but someone had asked where they could find some good wedding accessories CC. I was looking for some and happened across the post where you responded with quite a few nice links, they pretty much all were to My Sims Blog Site, but with that being said those also usually lead to links to other sites, and one had pretty much everything I needed on it's own, so thank you very much for responding to that person's thread. ^_^

    Can you help me? Recently I tried to download custom content and all my save files were deleted off my game even though in my sims 4 file they are still there. I’m really hoping I don’t have to start from scratch and it’s honestly really discouraging to play the game if I have too. I would appreciate if you could give me step by step help, but if you can’t its fine. Thank you

    • rosemow
      rosemow
      Do you use One Drive? If you do it could be causing this issue, Try seeing if there is a saves folder in One Drive . The game may be using that saves folder instead of the one in Documents -Electronic Arts -sims 4 folder . One Drive can cause issues,

      If you don’t use One Drive, try using the search bar on your computer , and search to see if there may be another saves folder on your computer that the game is using instead of the one directly in the sims 4 folder.

    Have you ever had a Sim come to your lot and do something random without a sims consent, like reading their newspaper or exercising in front of the house?

    • rosemow

      Hello
      Sims will sometimes come to lots and do random things. It may be due to the traits they have or just that they are randomly doing it.

    Hi Rosemow,

    While I was trying to understand my sims issue, I found your profile. I wanted to ask if you could help me with my problems, because I can't seem to figure them out.

    Well, this is what's bothering me: I love building houses, I really do. But sometimes it gets bored, because I want to play a little bit with my sims as well so then I just download houses from TSR. I never experienced any trouble with unpacking the files and moving them to the Tray file and actually play in them, but now they just won't appear in my game. (If you're wondering if it's got anything to do with CC: I download houses without CC, because I think it's bad for my system). I tried everything, I've read some of your advice on other's who where going through the same, but it just don't work for me.

    Something that's maybe important to say with it: since a little while I've chosen to run my Sims 4 from a harddrive. I've never downloaded lots or anything before after moving the Sims 4 to the harddrive.

      rosemow
      Hello :)
      It is not recommended to run Sims 4 from an external hard drive. It can cause issues. It would be best to install the game on an internal hard drive.
      With the issue of the homes not showing, if they aren’t appearing in your library, check to make sure that you have ticked the "include custom content" box that is in the advanced section of the filter in the Gallery.
      Also, go to game options and tick the " enable custom content and mods" button which is found in :
      Game Options | Other | Enable Custom Content and Mods. Also tick the script mods allowed button.
      Exit the game. Then go back into the game again and see if the issues remain.
      Running the game from an external drive may also be causing issues, if the lots are missing within the neighnourhoods.

      Hi Rosemow,

      Thank you so much for your reaction! I've installed Sims 4 on my hard drive, because I'm a student and I really need my MacBook for college. I've experienced some issues with lag and everything with having Sims 4 on my MacBook and running other heavy programs. I thought that maybe moving The Sims 4 to an hard drive would help, but unfortunately it doesn't work perfectly.

      That means I have to build my own houses and play in them, but that's okay.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      You should still be able to download and play the homes that other simmers have built. If there is an issue of empty lots in your game, then it would affect both the homes that you have built as well as those you have downloaded. Are the downloaded homes missing from the lots in your game’s world, or from your library?

  • VenessaVee
    Hi there, thanks for your advice with the washer earlier. It still doesn't work. Would it by any chance have to do with the amount of skills my sim has? As the options are all faded out, I hovered over them and they each said what level skill it had to be. Do you you think this might be the problem?

    Thank you :)

      Hello
      I am sorry that you are still having this issue :( I am just checking. After there is dirty clothing in the hamper, are you then unable to transfer it to the washer?.
    • VenessaVee
      VenessaVee
      I was actually going to ask, do I need the hamper or any other items around my washer in order to do the laundry? I think I have placed a hamper but no clothes are in there at this point.
      Sorry, I'm quite new to the sims 4.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      The hamper doesn’t need to be near the washer. When your sim changes their outfit, then the clothes go into the hamper. You can then click on them, and move them to the washer

      Hello
      If you have cc/mods in your game, move your mods folder to the desktop. Then start the game and see if the issues are still there. If it has helped with the issues, put your mods/ CC back into the newly generated mods folder that is in the sims 4 folder one by one or in batches and testingy after each one to see which is the causes of the problem.

      If the issues still remain, repairing the game may help. To do that, go to games library in Origin, right click on the sims 4 picture and click repair

      Shut down your computer completely. Restart the computer.
      Log into Origin. Right click on the sims 4 icon in games library and check that your game is uptodate.
      Then load the game, start a fresh new save game again, and see if the issues remain.

      Try repairing the game if you haven’t aleady done that , and see if that helps.

      I am sorry that you are having this issue. Try resetting downloading the mod again and see if the issue remains.
      Make sure that you extract the files out of the rar file. It doesn’t appear if you place the rar file in the mods folder, you need to extract the files out of the rar file. Also don’t leave the rar file in the mods folder.
