    Hi rosemow do you happen to know if the sale going on on origin will also include the jungle adventure game pack ?

      Hello
      The current Origin sale won’t include the new Jungle Adventures Pack. You will need to pay full price for it when it is released. It may be on sale though in a future Origin sale.
      I am looking forward to the new pack also :)

    Hi rosemow :) I don’t suppose that when a sim is taking a shower, their legs are supposed to disappear and their entire skin texture is supposed to become pitch black? Do you know what may be the cause of these issues? I don’t have any censor/mosaic changing mods and while their is some cc in the game this specific sim does not wear any in any of his outfits.

      Hello
      I am sorry that you are having these issues :(

      Try moving your whole mods folder to the desktop. Then start the game and test to see if that helps the issues.

      There has been many mods/cc broken by the patch.
      These are links to a list of some of the broken/updated mods/cc
      http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/935494/broken-mods-jungle-adventure-feb-2018
      https://simsvip.com/2018/02/22/broken-mods-february-18-patch-jungle-adventure-gp/

      There are other mods/cc that have broken also so you will need to test to see which is causing the issues in your game.

      Actually this was happening contiuously before the patch (like this Monday). So any ideas? I just updated today.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      It may be cc/mods that were causing the issues before the patch.

      Sims 4 Studio tool program, has a batch fix that includes fixing the cc items broken by the other recent patches
      http://sims4studio.com/board/6/download-sims-studio-open-version (register with the site first before trying to access the download page )
      It would be good to download the latest version and run the batch fixes that are in the cas section ( and the objects section if you have cc objects )
      After installing the program, click the tools label at the top of the screen, the batch fix options will be able to be accessed from the drop down menu
      You need to register on the site but it is free. You need to be logged in to access the download page.

      If the issues remain after this, try moving your whole mods folder to the desktop. Then start the game and test to see if that helps the issues. 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 testing after each one to see which is the causes of the problem.

      Hello
      It would be best for you to check in game and test to see if the issue is still there.
  • SimsSeasons
    Hi Rosemow! I’m having some problems with butlers in my game. So I hired a butler and at first nothing was wrong but then I traveled to the Spice Festival, and when I came back she was nowhere to be found and I had a different person as my butler. I checked all the contact lists and even though my sims definetly met the first butler, she was nowhere to be found. 2 sim days later, my second butler died of old age even though I had no aging on, and the first one came back. over the course of my gameplay since then the first and second butler would alternate every time I traveled to another lot. Sometimes when the second butler is currently my butler and I’m having a party, the first butler will show up even though she’s not in any contact lists... Once the second butler didn’t even wear his suit while on the job but some weird glitchy accessory-filled swimsuit. I don’t know what’s going on...?

      rosemow
      Hello
      I am sorry that you are having these issues. It may be best to fire the butler. Then wait a couple of days to see if the second butler appears. If he does, fire him also. Then wait a few more days, then hire a butler again, and see if that helps the issues.

    Hello,
    So yesterday my sims game worked well All commands worked well but today i added some custom music I did make it into a mp3 file and when i went to the game i would click on the stereo and only the upgrade command is there. I've removed the files still the same, and i've also deleted all non working mods and cc. Please Help Thank You.

      Try selling the stereo, and buying a new one 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 deleting the cache files and see if that helps

      Try resetting your sims 4 folder, starting a new save game file, and testing to see if it occurs there also . To do that, move your sims 4 folder ( that is in Documents -Electronic Arts - then the sims 4 folder is there ) to the desktop. Then start the game, and a new sims 4 folder will be generated.
      Start a new game and test to see if the issue is also in that new save game.
      Exit the game and then copy back the "options.ini" or "options" file and the "saves" , "screenshots" "tray" "custom music " and "mods" folders from the desktop sims 4 folder to the new sims 4 folder, replacing the new generated file/ folders with the old file/folders from the desktop sims 4 folder.

  • SimsSeasons
    Another issue I’m having is that there are 3 “Jasmine Holiday”. Like, I can invite all 3 to a party and 3 identical Jasmine Holidays will show up or 3 show up in my sim’s contact list... Is this a bug? I’d think they would use the same Jasmine Holiday for each challenge or at least make the 3 look different... Thanks for all your help rosemow!! :)
    February 21
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      Hello :)
      There shouldn’t be three Jasmine Holidays in your game.
      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 going to Manage Households and see if there are extra Jasmine households there, or if they are just in your contact list.

    Hi, I just started playing with the Active Doctor career and it is REALLY bugged. For example, the nurse just stands in line my entire shift as if she is a patient and not a nurse. The doctor doesn’t ever treat or diagnose patients because she just stands in her lab all day. One shift, she didn’t even have pants on!!! I can’t diagnose any patients and when I transfer a case to the doctor, she doesn’t do anything... So after I run the scans and stuff on the patient, they just sit there because I can’t do anything. Meanwhile the line keeps getting longer and nobody at the hospital cares enough to check people in as the receptionist is too busy playing video games behind the counter. Also, whenever I refer a patient for X-ray and then go back to the hospital bed, they never go back to the right one and instead kick another patioent out of their beds. And the straw that broke the camel’s back for me was that after my sim got promoted enough to not have to pick up trash anymore, nobody did!

    Okay... So I was playing around with making an object bigger (With the [ and ] controls) and I made this GINORMOUS sunflower that is so big it isn't even on my lot anymore, but then I clicked off off of it and I can no longer find it on my lot. I tried for like an hour to make it go away but I got angry and left the game (I saved because I had made a lot of progress) forgetting that I could just do Ctrl Z and now I am stuck with one of my sims inside of the sunflower...

      Hello
      It may be best to try recovering an earlier version of your current save game to play, that is before you enlarged the sunflower and last saved the game . To do that , go to the main screen of sims 4, and click on the " load game " button.Click on your save game file picture. Then click on the " recover game " button down the right hand side bottom of the screen,. Press on an earlier version of the save game from the menu that pops up. Then load that save game version

    Hey there! I recently have been experiencing my sims wearing clothes from the game for their bathing outfits. I tried the reset bathing outfit mod and it only randomize them into a new outfit. It says resetting bathing outfit 1. I encounter this problem ever since the pets update.

      Hello.
      If you use cc/mods, Sims 4 Studio has a batch fix for the issue. http://sims4studio.com/board/6/download-sims-studio-open-version (register with the site first before trying to access the download page )
      It would be good to download the latest version and run the batch fix and the pets patch batch fix. They are in the cas section.
      After installing the program, click the tools label at the top of the screen, the batch fix options will be able to be accessed from the drop down menu
      You need to register on the site but it is free. You need to be logged in to access the download page.

      Then if you have MCCC mod, click on the sim when they are bathing, click on mccc -mccc dresser -clean outfit.
    • chipsandicecream
      chipsandicecream
      The MCCC mod use to work before but after the recent update for it, it doesn’t seem to clean the outfit and it randomizes new clothes that are not cc related on my sim’s bathing outfit. They keep appearing clothes from the packs.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      If you use cc, you need to have done the batch fixes from Sims 4 Studio first. Try doing this before using the clean outfit option in MCCC mod.

      I figured out the problem. It’s a bug from the game itself. I took out all my mods and tried playing with it and the ea clothes was still there for the bathing outfit. I start a new vanilla save game and the problem still occured. I think it’s probably best to wait until there’s a new patch to solve the problem. And thank you for the help! I really appreciate it :D !

      It turns out it’s something within my cc that’s causing the problem. Because I start a new game folder and the new one had no problems at all. It started happening when again when I transferred the old files to the new one.

      I am sorry that you are having this issue.
      Try shutting down your Mac completely. Start the Mac again, then log into Origin, try launching the game and see if that helps.

      If you have cc/mods in your game, move your mods folder to the desktop. Then log into Origin, try to start the game and see if the issues are still there.

      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.

      Try uninstalling and reinstalling origin and see if that helps.

      If you still have issues, it would be best to post on a thread in the Mac section of the forums

    How come I can't see some people's signatures on their posts? Is it my browser? Do I need a special add-on?

      You don’t need a special add on to see signatures. Try logging out of the site, shut down your computer, then restart the computer, log into the site and see if you can see the signatures.
      If you still are unable to see them, try testing with another browser.

      I've tried Edge and Firefox and I still can't see 'em. Perhaps I should google the issue.

      Just to test the issue, can you see my signature on a post on the forums threads?
    • AshtontoAshton22

      No. I'm going to post the image of what I see in a new comment.

      I can see the links but I can't see the image. Nevermind about posting the previous picture.

      Your anti virus or firewall may be blocking the images. Try disabling them just for a few minutes to see if they are causing the issues.
