Hello to everyone May a little bird chirp a little melodious good morning message to you , or may you go to sleep resting on a pillow that is filled with soft perfumed flower petals. May the warmth of a smile from someone greet you through the day. May you know that you are very special to your loved ones. May you know the strength that you need for each day. May you be encouraged by the little everyday blessings of each day.

    Hey there! Idk if there's any threads on this but my family's relationship doesn't show any in-laws or great-grandparents as their titles unless in the family tree. Is this normal? Because I made a toddler for one of their grandchild's offspring but they only showed them as friends and not his great-grandparents when I over on them. It would be nice to give them other titles like family friend, or godparent in the future. My sim's father in law has been non-stop flirting with her, it's so awkward I can't deal with it. :D

    hey rosemow, sorry to be asking on your page but i just didnt want to start a new thread because its probably been asked alot of times before.. so i recently started playing with mods and downloaded a couple of cc's and skins for my game, i know we should remove the mods and cc before updating, do i just move the mods and cc back to the folder once my game is updated? what about my saved games now that my game is modded? thing is i havent updated my game to the feb patch and i dnt want to mess my game up so i just really want to be sure about it before i update my game.. thanks in advance !!

      Hello :)
      You can move your mods/cc back to the mods folder after updating the game. Before putting back your mods though, it is good to go to the downlosd sites of the mods and checking if updated versions of the mod has been released since the patch.
      Once you put back your mods/cc and enable cc/mods and script mods,in game options, the cc/mods will be back in your saved games. After turning back on the settings in game options, don't save your game. Exit the game without saving, then reload the game again and test to see that the cc appears.

      should i disable the cc/mods script mods in game setting before i update? or its fine if i just move the mods/cc from the mods folder without disabling the settings? oh and rosemow thanks again for the quick reply !! :)
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      Hello :) You don't need to disable the game settings. The patch update will do that automatically when needed. You just need to move out the cc/mods.

    @rosemow : Hi, I find edits CAN be applied to items loaded to the Gallery. The way it can be done is to fix the description in build, upload a second time and one wioll be asked if they want to "over write" the prior listing, say yes and the edits are applied.

    Hi there! You helped me once and it really helped. I'm having another problem and was wondering if you would save the day again. My game is being VERY slow right now. It takes like 20 minutes to start up, which wouldn't be so bad because I'm used to it taking about 10-15 min to load all of my mods. But it takes that long to load and when I click on a household to play, that load takes OVER half an hour and when it finally does load, the game play is super slow and unresponsive. I have done all I can think to do. I removed the Sims 4 folder from my EA Games folder and then restarted the game with no problems and then restarted my computer and then added the important files (saves, mods, tray, etc.) back into the new folder and tried to play again and that didn't fix it. I downloaded a mod conflict detector and went through and deleted the flagged mods. Like the duplicates, game modifying mods, and broken mods, and that still didn't work. It must be my mods? But I can't find the problem.

      Hello
      It may be best to post your dxdiag information on a thread in the Sims 4 Tech section of the forums. You can either post the information on a thread that a simmer has already started or I can start a new thread for you, because you are unable to,start a new thread because you are a new member. If you would like me to do that, just let me know.
      To gather a DXDIAG on your computer, do this :
      Press and hold the Windows key and the letter R on your keyboard
      You will see a Run box in the lower-left corner of your screen
      Type dxdiag in the text field
      Click OK
      Click the Save All Information button, found on the bottom of the DXDIAG report
      Then copy and paste the information from where you saved it, to the thread.
      It will take multiple posts.

      Try coming completely out of the game. Then launch the game and load your save game. Go directly to the lot or lots where you are having the issues, and enter build mode without trying to load any households. Save the home to your library. Bulldoze the current home. Then place the version from your library onto the lot. Then test to see if the issues remain.

    I need your help, all my saved games are gone...


    I've read one comment you made, I will transcript it so you can understand what I have done so far.

    "Hello
    Go to your save folder in Documents -Electronic Arts-Sims 4 folder and move the slot_00000001.save file. to your desktop. That is the autosave file and could be causing issues. Then launch the game. Go to the load button and see if your save games are there and try to load a game.
    If the load button is not there, start a new save game. Play for a little while then save it. Come completely out of the game. Go back in again , go to the load button and see if your save game files are there then."

    I have donne all of that and the files are still gone.

      If you have cc/mods in your game, move your mods folder to the desktop. Then start the game and test to see if the issues are still there.
      If the issues still remain, repairing the game may help. To do that, right click on the sims 4 picture in Origin and click repair.
      If you still have issues, try resetting your sims 4 folder and see if that helps. 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. 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

      If the cc come in zipped files, the package files need to be taken out of the zipped folders and placed in to the mods folder. If they come in a rar file, the package files need to be extracted. I am just checking that you have done that? Also check to make sure that none of the cc is for sims 2 or 3 instead.

      Try also moving your mods folder to the desktop. Then start the game and test to see if that helps the starting screen issues. If it does help, then put your mods/CC back into the newly generated mods folder in the sims 4 folder one by one or in batches and testing the game after each one to see which is the cause of the problem. Put one item or batch in , test the game , take it out. Then test another one, to find the cause of the issue.
