      Helllo :) You will need to take them into CAS and edit them.

      Cas is where you create your sims or change their outfits.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      You can enter the cheat
      cas.fulleditmode
      Then right click on the sim and choose the option to edit them,

    I've been a member since last year, but am considered a "new" member because I only have a few posts. I have a game issue but can't post a new thread. In a search I found a thread with the same problem but it was from years ago and there is no box to post comments. So in the bug forum there is a thread for new members to post problems in since we can't start a new thread and on the last page (355) there is no comment box to continue the thread. My problem is things are disappearing from my sim's inventory (Sims4). I thought it was just a case of misplacing her canoe (I had posted about that in a thread about wishing the docking ladder would lock our boats in place, but now I have had a camera and now a yoga mat come up missing from my inventory. I know I'm not selling these things. After the camera disappeared, I have been painstakingly careful with her inventory and I did not sell that yoga mat and it's not in the household inventory either. I'm stumped.

    Hi again, its been awhile. Anyway i was trying to open my sims inventory and it wouldn't let me. Then i tried to close sims 4 and i clicked the three dots but nothing came up again, i tried pressing esc and still nothing. I'm not sure if its my mods or what..

      Also this only happens when playing a household. Otherwise everything seems to be fine.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      Hello
      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.

      If the issues still remain, repairing the game may help. To do that, go to games library in Origin, right click on the sims 4 picture and click repair

    Hey Rosemow! I can't create a post on this and haven't found any so far, but I have created some families in Small Haven and I notice that only the house you are playing will show up in the second and third worlds that come with the base game when you are playing them.

    Is there a way to make all of your created sims show up on the map so that they can interact with each other and not just NPCs?

    It's kind of annoying that the family I'm playing will be the only ones to exist apart from NPCs if it is...

      Hello
      Are you playing Sims 4? There isn’t a world called Small Haven that came with the game.
    • bookwormst699
      bookwormst699
      Sorry, that's the CW show Supergirl XD I meant Willow Creek with my playable households being in Newcrest.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      You can have your sims travel from one world to another to visit the other sims.You can also go to manage worlds, press the globe button on the top left hand slice of screen, and choose another world, to play the sims that live there.
    • bookwormst699
      bookwormst699
      Yes, I'm familiar with that, but what I'm asking is why do some households disappear when you are playing another house that you built before that one?

      I'm trying to populate Newcrest and I play a household in Potter's Splay but had built a house before that save nearby and that house disappears on the map unless I play it.

      I noticed this before I installed any Mods so it can't because of that...
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      Houses shouldn’t be disappearing. Try testing in a fresh new save game to see if the issue also occurs there. If it does,you would be best to post about it on the AHQ EA site

    hi, rosemow! i've been having a super annoying issue where my sims in the sims 4 won't respond to any of my commands. for example, ill ask them to go to sleep or to feed the baby and they'll just stand still, not moving or doing anything. i've tried repairing the game, resetting my laptop, and i don't have any mods/ccs. i've been trying to find solutions for this online and none of them seemed to be effective. it's very frustrating as i haven't been able to play. if you could help me with this issue, that would be great!

      Try deleting the cache files and see if that helps.
      https://sims4.crinrict.com/eng/2014/09/delete-cache-files/
      If the issue remains, try testing in a fresh new save game and see if the issues are occur there also.
      If they do, it would be best to post about your issues on a new thread on the AHQ EA site.

      i don't think anything's working. i tried deleting the cache files, still nothing. i also before tried following your method on a different post where you said to move the sims 4 file to desktop and to form a new one by joining in-game then exiting and adding the "save", "screenshots", "mods", "tray", etc from the old file to the new file. none of them worked unfortunately.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      If the issue is also occurring in the new save game, it would be best to post on the AHQ EA site that I linked to. They may ask you for a DXdiag report to see if your laptop can handle the game.

    I just have a question! Idk if this is the place to ask, I’ve never used this website before! I cannot save my households the way I edited them. They show up in my library but with different clothes/hair. I know everyone’s saying that there’s an advanced option thing and you have to tick the CC box but I cannot find the advanced option thing ANYWHERE in my library.

      Hello
      The “ include custom content’ is in the gallery filter section on the left hand side of the Gallery.
      Also, go to game options and check that the " enable custom content and mods" button is ticked, which is found in :
      Game Options | Other | Enable Custom Content and Mods. If it isn't ticked, do that.Also check that the script mods allowed button is ticked as well. Exit the game. Then go back into the game again.
    • Abein
      Abein
      I don’t see “gallery” anywhere, all I see at the top right of my screen is controls, library, manage households. I also went into game options, then other and the only options I have are trail animation, share usage data and a few other things. Nothing with custom content/mods. (I’m really new to this, sorry) I’m on a PlayStation and I’m offline, idk if that matters.
    • rosemow
      rosemow
      You can’t use cc in the console version. That is why you won’t see those options. I didn’t know that you were playing on console.

      It doesn’t show a Task Manager option, there’s only The Sims 4, Pin to taskbar and Close Window. I’ve tried Close Window, but it didn’t work.

      Try just closing down your computer as you would normally do. Then restart the computer and see if you can load the game without issues then.

    Hi, please help me! When I click the household that I want to play in and stuff the loading screen afterwards literally takes FOREVER!! Like I'd say it takes about 15-20 minutes to load now! And when it EVENTUALLY loads none of the sims (both my sims and the townies!) will move or do anything like they're all just stuck there! Their needs are all still going down though and the time is still moving.... I've tried literally everything with both the game and my PC to fix it but nothing is working and I'm honestly starting to lose the world to live with it now!! It was all fine until about 2 days ago! My sim went to the toilet that I had just placed and then they all just stopped and now it takes me about a million years to get back into the household again! Please help me coz I honestly really don't know what else to do at this point.... :(

      You won’t lose any data from uninstalling origin. You save games and tray folder items are in your Sims 4 folder, which remains there. You are not uninstalling the game. You are just uninstalling /reinstalling origin.
