    Hi, my name is D'ajah Imani Murray-Charles. Huge huge fan of The Sims franchise,

    I've been playing this amazing game when I was 5 or 6 years old when the first ever game came out.

    I'm 18 years old still playing, creating new families and stories in my head that are coming to life. A couple months ago I had to wipe my computer clean, which uninstalled all of my games. I updated my computer to windows 10 and redownloaded everything ( or at least attempted to). When I was going to download the Sims Medieval, an error message came up saying " DirectX Setup Error: an internal error occurred". I tried everything to fix it but it came down to me getting bounced back and forth between EA/Origin and Windows online chat agents. Finally, someone from Windows said that both of my games The Sims 4 and The Sims Medieval weren't compatible with my computer being on Windows 10 and the only way for me to play was to put it back on Windows 8. That meant a factory reset, that could possibly cause me to lose everything if something went wrong.


    Long ridiculous story short is there any way for you guys to work on older version of the Sims franchise to be compatible with the current and upcoming Windows update? I really don't want to either get a new computer and have to lose my files during the transfer or lose my files to a factory reset just to play one of my favorite games. I'm sorry if I have offended anyone.

    Thanks for creating such an amazing franchise and I can't wait for more stuff.

    Sincerely D'ajah <3

    Can you please make a careers pack. Because if you look at ts2 and ts3 there are so many careers. Please get a careers expansion/game pack because there is not enough options in ts4. Thanks

    Hi there,

    A couple of weeks ago my sims 4 informed me it had a new update to download, since then every time I download or save a sim to the gallery my game freezes and I can't click anything. I have tried disabling all mods and cc and restarting the computer. Basically, I really have tried everything I can think of.

    I don't really know if this is the right place to ask but I recognize you from the livestreams.

    I love sims and have been playing for a couple of years but I have never encountered anything like this before, and really need this issue resolved

    Please can you help, or pass this to someone who can?

      Hi SimGuruGrant,

      I also have a huge problem since the last update. All the downloaded mods like hairstyles, makeup, cloths, etc. have disappeared. I.e. the sim doesn't have any hair anymore.

      If I download new items and put them into the Sims 4 folder, they simply don't appear in the game.

      Has anyone else had these experiences since the last update? What can I do?

      Thanks a lot!

      Hanna

    So today I noticed a bug in the sims 4 that i have never noticed before.
    So basically it is in build mode. Let's say you want a basement! When you put a stair that leads up to the first floor, (This is when your house is on a foundation) there is this weird glitch between the walls of the basement and the house. It is like a sunken in wall that can't be used in any way!

      I'm experiencing this too. It's making the game unplayable.

      Hopefully not. Vampires game pack is beyond TRASH and unnecessary. Furthermore, the werewolves should have been included with the vampires GP. Please do not give EA more ideas to get money from us.

    Hey, Im really new to TS4 forums and I don't know if you check what people write on here (because that could be a little much) but I would just like to say that I really wan't the age sliders back in the Sims 4 so you can really play your game just as you want it, with your own special configurations. If you see this, thanks. If not, thanks for being a part of one of the best games ever!

      Hello Loyden. Try downloading weebesu's UI Cheats Extension mod from modthesims.info. . . .

      I believe there is a function that allows you to slide age for existing sims. You will not be able to slide ages in CAS, but you can once the sims is already created. Enjoy and have fun.

      Thanks weebesu!

    Hi SimGuru, I just updated my sims game to the latest patch and now I'm having trouble with the gallery. When a click on a lot or a household and then try to exit, it leaves me with this kind of transparent blue screen, like i can see the rest of the gallery in the back but it won't let me click anything.
    I also cannot save anything, please help. Thank you!

    Hello Sims Guru Grant. Any chance that the Sims 4 gallery will be fixed. Since the July 31st fix, the gallery has become totally unusable. While I enjoy looking at the new gallery layout, I have yet to be able to use it. For example, I cannot download anything into the game. When I try to do that, the game freezes and I have to restart it. Also, my content seems to have disappeared. Any chance that the gallery we all know and love can be restored? An old working gallery is better than a new non-working one.

    Is there going to be another game update anytime soon? Ever since the last one, my sims don't respond when I ask them to do things, and I have guests that won't leave. They've been in my house for 3 days and I can't ask them to leave because it tells me they're already leaving, and they never do.

    I just downloaded the July 31 upgrade and now all my custom content has disappeared. I have all the custom objects and clothes files still in the Documents/Electronic Arts/the Sims4/Mods but none of it is showing in the game. I love my Custom content and would probably not play the Sims without it. How do I get them back.

      option menu, click "game options", then click "other" then enable custom content. You will have to restart the game.

    With the new update and popular now being the set to as default when you open the gallery, it is causing new builds not to be seen. Many simmers don't know or don't realize the change causing new simmers/ builds a disadvantage over those with a ton of followers. I spent a good amount of time yesterday watching new builds as they were uploaded to the gallery , very nice builds had either none or very few ,as low as 1 to 2 downloads. I feel these builds would have done a whole lot better if they were uploaded before the update. People don't know to switch over to newest or don't know how ( newer simmers). Please , Please, Please change back to newest being default and support all builders , not just ones with followers.
