      Hello :) Thankyou for your kind message :) I hope you have a very nice week :)

    On my PS4 Pro, I’ve found that if you use cheats and save the Household you can, then, create a new game using that saved Household where you were using the cheats. The sims in the new Household will have all the skills and aspirations the source Household has. For vampires by using the cheats to give you the perks you lack, you can then use the cheat to clear the perks board and this will award you 148 Power Points. Use a Drought of Reconfiguration to clear the weaknesses board to receive another Power Point. Save the Household and use it to create a new one and you’ll get all the Power Points the source had. It also allows you to again earn trophies. NOTE if you use the cheat to acquire Dampened Emotions a Drought of Reconfiguration WILL NOT turn it off. You must use the cheat to clear the Perks board. This is the best way I have found to circumvent the Vampire bug keeping you from acquiring more power points once you hit the second level above Grand Master.

      Hello:)
      I don’t play the console version of the game but it will be helpful for simmers who play that version.
  • alphysss
    hi! this isn't a concern or anything, just two simple questions for you :)
    1. which is your favourite - Create a Sim, Build Mode or Live Mode?
    2. how do you manage to stay so positive all the time?
    love you and thank you for always helping everyone out!! :)

    Hi there😊 I resently downloaded the Sims4 Seasons, and since then my game is not working properly. My sims won’t do what I tell them to. For example, I tell my sim to teach my toddler to talk, and all the sim does is wave at the toddler, and that’s that. Then the action is complete. There are many more things, like I tell them to cook, and they just take out the plate with the food on, and don’t continue cooking. I have to click a million times on the action «continue cooking» before the meal actually is complete. I always reset my sims, but it’s not that they don’t stop doing something, it’s that they don’t do anything I tell them to😂 I’ve tried taking out my CC, and that doesn’t work either. I’ve tried clicking on the «repair» button several times, but that doesn’t work either. So that’s the first thing. The second thing is that my kijiko eyelashes are SUPER wierd (I’ll try adding a picture), and I’ve only seen them being this wierd in my game. Please help me❤️

      Sorry, I have to continue here. So, I was unable to add a picture cause I’m lowkey stupid😂 They get super wierd, and with wierd I mean it’s like my sim has a blue something over the entire eye. Imagine the lashes, and just convert the entire thing to one huge lash. Then make it blue, that’s how it’s looking. I do use «contacts» or «eyes», but they’re not the reason for this issue. I’ve downloaded the newest version etc, and I’m just helpless. If you could help me fix these problems it would literally mean the world to me. Because as it is now, I can’t play the Sims4. (Another thing, in CAS the lashes look completely normal) Thank you!❤️

      Hello
      I don’t use cc so I can’t help with the eyelashes.
      With the first issue, 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.
      If the issue isn’t in the new save game, then don’t put back the mods folder.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

      hi! thought i might help with the kijiko lashes - if your sim is wearing a necklace it can sometimes conflict with the lashes on certain outfit categories. try taking your sim's facial accessories off and it should work! <3

    My sim is shining/plastic all over her body I don’t know how to get rid of it. Please help

      Hello
      Simmers are finding this is caused by broken cc. Try moving your whole mods folder to the desktop. Delete the cache files
      https://sims4.crinrict.com/eng/2014/09/delete-cache-files/
      Then start the game and test to see if that helps the 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.

    Hi, I see you have a lot of badges. I have been a member, started in 2014 but I am very confused about what this account is. It seems like I need 15 comments or discussions? I have 25 points and 5 badges and only have been on this account, it looks like 4 times. What do I do now? What is this profile used for?

    ♥Also, I follow you on sims 4 and you always have nice things to say on my builds. Thank you for that! ♥

    Hey! I remember a while back you were so helpful with repairing my game and I’m hoping you can help me with this new problem. After the Island Living patch, my game will load initially, however, when I try to click on a household the icon flickers blue, the pictures of the sims do not load, and I click the play button on any household, even ones I have not touched ever, and nothing happens. I've tried to repair my game, and I know it’s not a mod issue because I’ve gone through the whole process of moving my mods folder to my desktop and disabling it from my game and everything but it proves that the mods arent an issue it must be a bug or something. I literally have tried everything I know to do, except for uninstalling and reinstalling my game because that takes DAYS. My game is completely unplayable and I do not understand why. Please help, thank u!!

      Try testing with a new save game and see if the issue remains.

      If the issue remains, 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.

      Okay so I did everything u said and it worked with all of the the new stuff in the sims 4 folder (before u put my old stuff back in). But then I added all of the stuff that u said to add from my old folder to the new created one and I started the game and it does the same thing it did before.

      Your save game may be broken. Try start a fresh new save game with all your old folders still there, and see if the issue remains. If it still remains in the new save game, then you will need to test your mods again.
      This is a link to the broken /updated mods/cc thread
      https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/960932/broken-updated-mods-cc-island-living-june-2019-patch#latest
      There is information about broken mods/cc there., so check to see if you have any of the broken mods/cc.
    • Alexis_Lembo8
      Alexis_Lembo8
      Thank you for trying to help me. Unfortunately I can not find one single mod that’s in that list that’s in my game but I do have a feeling the mods is what’s causing the issue now. Don’t know what to do about it at this point though because I have 2000+ mods and I have no idea which one of them are known to be broken :(
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      Because you have a lot of mods/cc, you could use the 50/50 method. Put half of your mods/cc into the mods folder then start the game and see if the issue is still there. If the issue is not there, then you know that those items work okay with the game. Then you can test the other half of your cc/mods.
      If the issue is still there with the first half, you will need to keep testing them to see what is causing the problem. Then you will need to test the second half of your cc/mods too.
    • Alexis_Lembo8
      Alexis_Lembo8
      Hey sorry to keep coming back to this but I just tried the whole 50/50 method down to the last of my mods and even after taking all of my mods out it still displays the glitch. I’m so confused.
    • rosemow

      Do you still have the issue when you start a fresh new save game with no mods in your mods folder?
    • Alexis_Lembo8
      Alexis_Lembo8
      The only time I’m able to play is if I have no mods OR any of my old saved games/tray in the folder.
    • rosemow

      It sounds like either you have a broken save file or your mods /cc are broken. You will need to keep testing to see which is the issue. I am sorry :(

    Hey! So I updated the game a few nights backs and for some reason, it was lagging and glitching terribly. So I thought that it would be better in the morning and ever since then my game won’t launch. It will bring me to Origin and I’ll click play then Origin will disappear for about 3 seconds and then Origin will pop up and it will not launch the game. Then it says last played: then it will say the current date even though I haven’t been able to play it. The play button is always highlighted but will not let me play as I said. I trust and hope that you would be able to help me or come up with some advice/solution. Thank you!

      Hello
      I am sorry that you are having issues :(
      If you have cc/mods in your game, move your whole mods folder to the desktop.
      Delete the cache files
      https://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/help/cachebackup.php
      Then start the game and see if the issues are still there. 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
      Repairing the game may help. To do that, right click on the sims 4 picture in Origin and click repair.

    Hi there! I've updated the game and I'm having last exception errors every few seconds. I've updated both Wicked Whims(Not sure if we talk about that here) and MC Commander. I've deleted most of my cc. Would you mind looking at the error to see if you can figure out what else I need to delete?
