Don't know if I am in the right area but hopefully someone here can help me. This is my first time back to the game since EA took over SIMS from ORIGIN and I'm not liking the fact that it is showing me that I would have to purchase a game pack that I already bought when I played on ORIGIN. If that is the case, they can take it a shove it. Can someone explain this to me? Please & thank you.

Thank you very much for your help. It is greatly appreciated

No matter what I do, my sims NEVER do the tasks they want unless I direct them to, and the more I redirect them the angrier they get.
Their love needs may seem satisfied, but only so long as all other considerations are sidelined.
They do not, on their own, pursue career goals.
Often they don't eat, sleep, pee or shower, all the while complaining of the results.
They randomly do things that offend other sims, and it happens too quickly to see what it was.
The reject directions on a whim and leave aside the tasks to which they claim to aspire or which they need in order to do well in careers or roles. They always stop whatever they are doing to play games or do something else entirely unproductive.
No matter how advanced they are at cooking, they always leave off the preparations after the money has been spent and let the half-made food rot. They never bother to clean this up.
They eat and drink spoiled things they won't clean up.
They leave trash lying around and won't clean it up.
No matter how I do or don't micro-manage them, my sims always crash into insane outbursts and uncontrollable rage after a couple hours of playtime
Either this game is absurdly difficult to play or none of the in-game help is worth a rat's poop in a chocolate factory.
Is there no sandbox mode where new players can learn the ropes without constantly hanging themselves?
How can I follow tips that actually work without having to wade through thousands upon thousands of comments to find a reply?
How is this game fun when it always ends with frenzied, angry, chaotic, rebellious, self-destructive sims no matter what I do?

I wish I never bought Bust the Dust. It's the worst $5 I've ever spent. It broke my game, my $1000 worth of DLCs and EPs and SPs game. For about a year or two, I followed James Turner's instructions and just disabled the kit on the Origin interface and it was okay. The evil spawn of Satan just disappeared and my game was blissfully free of dust bunnies, unusable counters, and stupid inspired moodlets from a normally vacuumed house for days on end. And then the demon returned.
Uncheck the box in Pack settings, they said. That will fix the problem, they said. No more dust effects, they said.They lied.
The demon returned once again.
It is unkillable.
My sims cannot cook in their kitchens any more because of this pack.
So of course I did what any of you would do, I had them eat fresh produce. Do they get the Gift from Mother Nature moodlet they used to get? No, some junk food loving weirdo programmed the game to give Sims diarrhea if they eat produce now. This is what happens:
Why was this update necessary? Why? Did someone think people are eating just too darned much fresh food these days and need to start eating more junk food?This is a cocktail for starvation in my game. My sims cannot eat.

I don't bother playing anymore, I just build, now I can't get into my game to do that. I'm done. I was going to buy the pack. Why not I have all the others, but now I changed my mind. I've playing the sims since sims one and have all the for 1 2, 4 and 4. I think this is telling me time to save my money.

I have spent the last 3 days trying to get the Growing Together pack running. In between hunting down and deleteing out of date mods.
Finally got it to make an appearance today when I totally disabled all mods.
Great! I thought.
Closed the game, re-enabled my nods, restarted the game.
NO Growing Together, again.
It seems this latest pack and update simply will not run with mods.
The game will start and run like a hairy goat with the mods in, but the latest pack and updates will not show at all.
Well Done Maxis\EA.
So yep game is a mess and I deleted and binned all my save games for sweet NOTHING.
Lat time I buy anything from this company.
