    If you direct a vegetarian Sim to "get leftovers", they may not pick a vegetarian dish... *eye roll*

    They should be found in Objects by Function > Electronics > Misc.
    They're listed as "Robot Vacuum" and "High-end Robot Vacuum" if you wanna search for them :)

    First off you are talking about lots and Sins I take it? To get them, 1. Go into your Profile {click on your name} and once it comes up you will see all your downloads and things which you have built or made yourself will be there and you can redownload them there.
    2. there is also a button called my favorites also which will have have all the builds you have favored so you can also download them again
    3. You also see a friends button you can click on it and will see all your friends and you can click on each of them and see what they have made and can download them.
    4. Also if you have downloaded any thing with CC one the left hand side click the buttons Advanced and include Custom content

    In other word you can get everything you had as far as Gallery things by clicking on you name and going to your PROFILE and start clicking on the buttons there.

    I know what you are going through because I'm having to do it my self. Also if you ever have to start the game again from scratch but want to keep you saves and lots so you can put them back in the game before deleting the Sims 4 folder remove your SAVES, tray and Mods(if you use or have any) folders and place them on your desktop delete the Sims 4 folder and then start the game again an once it is there again you can replace the new ones with the ones you placed on your desktop.

    Hope this helps if you need additionsl help just ask.

    Hey there,

    I'm in need of some dire help, two days ago I had to replace my computer (mac book air to mac book pro) because it was murdered by a glass of milk. I have re-downloaded Sims 4, and I still have all of my packs but anything that I had in my library (households, houses, people, etc) Are gone and so is everything I have built over the past three years that I have had this game.

    Is there any way that I can find all of my stuff?????
    My game has entirely restarted itself as if I had never been playing it in the first place. I cant't even get to my maps(worlds) without creating a new sim first and go through the tutorials.
    So I closed the game and thought I'd see if I could get any answers somewhere first before continuing. This is not the first time I have had a major issue with this game and it's starting to get extremely frustrating.

    THANKS!
    :D

    when you use a laser pointer with a cat, the color and symbol of the pointer are based on the mood the sim is in. if they're happy, the laser will be green with an omega symbol (or horseshoe, i guess), playful is purple with a fish, focused is violet with a bullseye. haven't gotten any other emotions on hacker girl, but curious what the others will have

    Try searching for it, if not look in hobbies.

    That is definitely new!

    I had a pop up saying that a person who had died was losing their strength with the physical world and I should interact with them to maintain it or words to that effect. Perhaps this means finally useless ghosts I have no interaction with will finally disappear.

    That's exactly what it means. You can save any you want in your game by interaction and release any you don't want to be culled by simply ignoring them.

    So I want to start this thread for the least used sim features that Simmers might not know about...So we can know about them. For example, I might be late to the party because I cannot figure out why I didn't know about this, but did you know you can save memories and tag your sims in the memory...Then, you have the option to allow your sim to reminisce about the memory...did you know that? I didn't...I know I'm missing out on other awesome sim things. Will y'all share with me?
    I am not certain how this feature plays out but we'll see...

    On a lot with the "dark leyline" lot trait two normal sims have a higher chance to have vampire babies.

    Had two normal sims to live on such lot and they had triplets, which ALL of them were vampires. :)

    That you can lower the roof with the top arrow.

    Seriously. I just found this out.

    This has me wondering what else I don't know.

    If you have C&D, hear a squishing sound, and your Sim expresses disgust, you may have just "Stepped In Pet Poop" leading to a 1 hour Uncomfortable moodlet. "Ew! Gross! Pet owners who don't pick up after their pets are the worst!" OK, Miss Judgey, um, you are the owner, hun.
