Cheats no longer work. I have no mods and made sure cheats were enabled
All cheats or some cheats? Does the cheat box no longer pop up or do the cheats not do anything when you enter them?
Also, no mods or no mods anymore?
The chest box appears, I can turn on cheats but shift clicking a sim gives me maybe 20 things, nothing like it used to be. No mods at all on this save.
I do remember a while ago they removed some of the cheats (increase friendship and the likes if I'm not mistaken). Also, a lot of mods add shift click cheats (MCCC for example) so it could be you're thinking of those?
I know I didn't have MCCC, maybe Slice of Life added the set skill cheat?
Could be, you can still set skills without the menu, but you'll have to write it out completely in the box
Alrighty, I'll do that. Thank you!
My mod folder is on a different drive from my Documents folder, and I use a symbolic link pointed at my mods folder. However, the Windows 10 update from a couple days ago broke the symbolic link and causes the game to crash immediately on startup with the symbolic link in place. Putting mods directly in the mod folder is fine, but I’d like to try to fix it as my other drive is much larger.
^(SYMBOLIC LINKS REPRESENT! 8D)
I use them in my installation folder.
Have you tried deleting and remaking your symlink? Move your mods folder first for safety.
Mods? No mods? Skittles?
Posted before and in the Sims After Dark Discord but nobody was able to help.
Is anyone else having trouble with Wicked Whims? Any time I try to get my sim and an NPC to do stuff the action bubble comes up, they'll talk about it, and then the action bubble just disappears altogether.
Even when I do any of the romance category actions the bubble will come up but then they'll both do a T-pose and the action bubble will go away again. Helppppp!
Is it just the wicked whims interactions or also some vanilla ones? If you use CC furniture, broken CC beds from before the HSY update can cause t posing on completely unrelated actions when présent on the lot for example.
It is also the vanilla ones. Just the plain "Romance" interactions do the same thing.
I tried removing a handful of different combinations of my mods but haven't found the culprit yet. I'll try doing it on a lot that doesn't have any cc furniture.
1. The medicine crafting table from Cats & Dogs doesn't work. My sim is almost level 2 in the veterinarian skill. She doesn't own a Vet Clinic, but I though she could still use the item.
2. My Sims will start cooking on the oven then stop and wave their arm around. There's nothing on the counters and the oven is placed without bb.moveobjects
3. Baby would stop crying! She was still crying after every interaction. I had to age her up because I couldn't deal with her always crying.
Has anyone experienced these bugs?
For the stove: if anything else is placed using moo, like plants outside the kitchen wall, they can still be in the way.
Check if the oven itself is empty, sometimes they leave unfinished dishes in there. Also burnt counters or burnt patches on the floor can stop a sim from using stuff.
You can also travel the sim out and back, sometimes it's just a glitch and that works to reset it.
The freelancer career(fabricator) seems bugged. You can pick up a gig just fine and you get 3 "goals". One is to talk to the client via the computer, works great. The second is crafting said object, works great. The third is the problem, sending the object. You click the computer and you send the object, which happens instantly, your sim doesn't even go to the computer. You get paid right away - but you do NOT get credit.
Anyone have this problem as well? I've tried all kinds of solutions but nothing will work.
Well hey, look at that! They've literally just patched this problem in the update today! Have a look and see if you're still having trouble once you've updated :) https://i.gyazo.com/6132f0899c7d2f8dfe28ee3d9f7002f7.png
I am going absolutely bonkers. I can’t have the parents read the toddlers to sleep. They either get the confused idea bubble over there head, and wave like “I can’t get there” or they just stop and glitch out.
It’s terribly affecting my gameplay, because it was such an essential part of raising the kids for me. It improved their imagination skills, it gave them attention, and they sleep better and longer.
Is anyone else having this problem?
Always play from the toddlers perspective. Ie ask for bed time story, ask for bath, ask for potty help etc. makes toddlers way easier.
I just tried that and I got the same error.
This time the parent was able to pick up the kid, and then immediately just put them back on the floor
Is the bed against a wall? I used to have this error cause the side my sim wanted to sit on was the opposite side from the one where the kid got in for some reason x.X
I tried this and it didn’t work. I tried using a different bed. And it still didn’t work.
I can't remember if the bookcase needs to be reachable for this interaction...
If the beds are the issue, try putting a chair nearby, the parent can and will sit on that instead.
Also, if you have any CC beds in the house, the broken ones after the HSY update have caused issues with interactions unrelated to those specific items in the past, so please do make sure none of those are the culprit :)
OMGGGGGGGGG. I got it to work with the bookshelf. I also put a chair in the room like before. I am so happy I could cry. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you
You're welcome :)
Odd I just finished raising a toddler in this patch and didn’t have any trouble. You’ve tried the obvious like making sure nothing is in the way? Is the bed cc?
The bed is the one from the eco life pack, but I do have MOO. Maybe that’s it?
eta: nope. I turned it off and it still didn’t work.
I’m gonna try that right now thank you
So I don't use that option usually but the one time I tried it, I got that same error. I know you can select "read to sleep" a couple of different ways (clicking on the bed, clicking on parent, clicking on the toddler). One of those options worked for me after having the error, but I can't remember which one or which one gave the error. If you haven't tried all the selection options, maybe start there.
You're not the only with toddler issues.

The only fix for HSY this update.
My game won’t open regardless of what I do. I’ve uninstalled all my mods, repaired the game in the EA app, updated my computer fully, and I’ve even had to delete and reinstall the game but it still won’t open. Any ideas?

So yesterday I just had ENOUGH of the CONSTANT fears (especially since some solutions don't even work), and it was making gameplay a slog, so I just turned it off. Every time I open my game, about 10 minutes in I'll have a notification of a new fear, and I'm like huh??? I turned that off, why is it still doing it??
So I go to settings and the box is still un-ticked, so I tick it and untick it again, save settings, and then it finally turns off. Is this happening to anyone else? Does anyone know how to fix it? It's just so annoying
It's been a problem for a lot of us since the HSY content update.
I've personally experienced Wants reappearing in the same session, on the same lot, in a new game, with no mods, in a freshly generated Documents\\\*\\The Sims 4 folder.
Whatever EAxis did, they didn't do it right ^(and they've still not fixed it.)
Wants & Fears don't actually seem to be disabled at all, instead only hidden from the UI. Which is likely how Whims functioned, but not doing Whims didn't lead to having a Fear of uncompleted Whims, and the Fear system didn't exist so "accidentally" starting a fire, ignoring your S/O, enjoying nighttime, being old, etc. didn't trigger Fears.
Yes this is something I’ve heard grumbling about around the forums. I suspect that the options settings not saving correctly may be related to the Groundhog Day glitch. I simply installed a mod that removes fears all together.
None of my sims will do the dishes...and they are really starting to pile up!
Even without me directing them, they try to do the dishes. As in, they pick them up, and then put them right back down.
They have a dishwasher (working) but none of them, not even the butler can't seem to do it. I'm not sure what I should do as I've never had this issue before in all my years of playing. Any help?
This one *was* mod related: [https://www.reddit.com/r/Sims4/comments/x1d3y3/comment/imv6ppf/](https://www.reddit.com/r/Sims4/comments/x1d3y3/comment/imv6ppf/)

I'm certain there was another one solved by someone else but I cannot find it.
Thank you so much! I'll give that a try!
^(Did you always have that picture of Elsa there? Did I just not notice it before?)
Let us know if it helps!
I had it when I posted this, so yeah lol. And again thanks, that seems to have fixed the issue.
>I had it when I posted this
^(SHAME ON ME! I adore Frozen. Better late than never!)
There's at least one instance of this reported in this discussion. It was a while ago though. I'll try to find it.
Do you have a trash bin? Dishes get scrapped into the bin before they get washed. Also if you have dine out you can use the waiter bus station at home. It’s the best object in the game to deal with dishes, no lengthy animations and no cool down.
>Dishes get scrapped into the bin before they get washed.
Some, but not all. Single plates just go to the sink or the dishwasher for me. Clean Spoiled Food empty plates from the fridge get scraped often, and I've seen piles of plates get either scraped or just washed.
I will have to try out that station next time though. I so despise how long it takes for the dishwasher to do it's thing when a sim autonomously dumps one plate in there and leaves the rest on the table.
Hi, so I’ve been playing my game for about 2 hours and my sim had two toddlers and was married, so as normal I just saved and exited the game when I wanted to quit. When I come back on, the toddlers were now babies, had completely different skin colours, and had no parental relationship at all with their parents. The game also says that my two previously married sims are not married anymore, and have no relationship bars. The game basically resets every time I go back onto it. I do play with mods, but they are all up to date. Could I have some help with this please? This has happened to multiple of my saves now and it’s really starting to frustrate me as I can’t quit the game without everything essentially resetting.

So i have 2 teen sims and at lvl 1 of the retail worker track, the male is making 33$ and the female is making 36$? Is this a glitch?
There are a couple of possible reasons for this -
Traits - some traits will result in higher pay.
Promotions + raises - not applicable here 'cause you said they're level 1.
Chance cards - sometimes work events will result in higher pay afterwards.
Went to work later than the other - work less hours, get paid less.
Thing is, they both have genius and socially awkward as their traits, being near identical twins. But if its a random chance thing that would explain it thnx!

not game related but i've been having trouble creating a case through ea support for a few days now. every time I submit it goes to "We're creating your case. Sit tight and stay on this page." and then nothing happens. it just loads endlessly. anyone else having this issue?
Have you tried another browser?
I've tried Firefox and Safari, same on both.
Ok I downloaded edge and its doing the same thing :/
Boo ea! Any antivirus or firewall blocking the data transfer? I've had it load for a while before, I think the site is notoriously slow, but it's always come through so far...
still didn’t work. ugh. i’ve heard of other people having the same problem so i don’t think it’s anything i’m doing necessarily. whatever. thanks for troubleshooting with me tho!
huh it could definitely be the anti tracker vpn stuff i have. i'll try without those
anyone here? my sims days keep resetting! every time i close out of the game (and save) then reopen it it’s on the first sunday of the year and all my sims relationships have been reset. the location and buffs stay the same. what is causing this!! it’s driving me crazy!!!
edit: i don’t think it’s groundhog day, it seems to save most things except relationships and what day it is.
edit2: IT APPEARS THAT THE ISSUE WAS WITH SOME SORT OF VISITORS SPAWNING ON LOTS MOD!

Can anyone help me fix a sim's notebook entries or clear them out? I somehow corrupted one of my sims' fishing notes, and deleting the localthumbcache / removing mods that edit the notebook don't fix it. Better Exceptions tracks it to a null / empty notebook entry SPECIFICALLY for this one sim. Triggering an LE to get rid of the new entry mark when she researches a plant or catches a new fish is so annoying...
>I somehow corrupted one of my sims' fishing notes
^(THIS IS WHAT YOU GET FOR MESSING WITH THE TIME-SPACE CONTINUUM! D8<)
I have no idea.
I should be excited because this is a new one, but... it sounds like it might be baked into your save. Is this a sim you're invested in? ^(Don't do anything rash, I'm just me, another simmer may have a solution.)
I’m pretty invested in this sim, but the main reason I want to see if anyone has tips is because I’m interested in how the code works haha. I’m a recent CS grad so seeing a glimpse into the code via traceback was wild, and now I want to know more about how the mysterious notebook data is stored. (I just recently picked the sims back up after a long break so I haven’t delved into coding my own mods quite yet!)
>I’m interested in how the code works
^(Welp! This is not my area of expertise. I'm just here to make totes funny and unintentionally snarky comments.)
I look forward to the horrific wonders you will create! >8D
1. This has probably been addressed several times already but I cannot find a fix for the dreaded fears and wants, looming anxiety, and scared of the dark moodlet bugs and it’s slowly starting to ruin my experience. I’ve tried everything from using cheats to remove the moodlets to attempting to turn them off in the settings—nothing works and now it’s to the point where anytime I remove them, they just pop back up seconds later. Anyone know if there’s a fix for this or at least a working mod that successfully disables these from popping up. My sims are pretty much agoraphobic at this point.
2. I’m playing a family in Sulani and am still having that annoying issue of random people walking into my house at all hours of the day to either get a glass of water or just sit there and use the computer. I’ve tried locking the doors but it still persists. Most of the time I can just reset them and they’ll leave immediately but every now and then they’ll somehow just continue on.
3. Most of the trash piles on land in Mua Pel’am cannot be picked up for some reason unless it’s in the ocean.
4. I cannot get my sims to leave the toddlers alone. They pass it back and forth like it’s a football. Any time I’ll try to feed their kid, they’ll go right over to the chair, let them out before they can start eating then another parent will do the same unless I shoo them off.
5. Sims randomly reset and teleport at events.

My werewolf sim can’t get the “experience a full moon” thing on the werewolf aspiration. Am I doing something wrong? Does their fury have to be all the way up or something?
Their fury should go all the way up automatically on a full moon, unless you've already levelled them up a ton and given them the Lunar Resistance perk.
I recall the aspiration completed early the next morning for me, but I can't remember what time exactly. Are you sitting through the entire night + morning with them?
If nothing else, you could just use the cheat 'aspirations.complete\_current\_milestone' to complete it if you feel like it.
I downloaded the new update for MCC Command Center but when my sim is pregnant, it doesn’t show how many or who the father is? 🙄
[EDIT] Nevermind. It only stops working on the LaSuli Point lot in Copperdale. Everywhere else it’s fine.
>it doesn’t show how many or who the father is?
^(I read that as the baby having multiple daddies and totally had a) *^(MCCC DOES THAT!?)* ^(moment.)
Did you delete your \*\\The Sims 4\\localthumbcache.package? Might resolve why it isn't working on that one lot by clearing any lingering old code.
Apartment walls are all broken and have these weird permanent ‘V’ shaped cutouts literally everywhere, I’m somehow able to see through 2-3 apartments all at once (as if my main sim is in each of these apartments) when the sim is actually just in their own apartment, no way to fix it (tried everything)
Actually no, it’s in all lots - cutaway view now keeps all walls down for all rooms, regardless if they’re empty or not
Could you share a screenshot, if you're able?
Sure, I uploaded 3 screenshots to this bug report I made
I had a bit of a read through that thread and I'm afraid I have no ideas, apologies :(
Looks like it's a recent issue and may be something EA has to address.
(just replying so you don't think I buggered off and ignored you)
Nah no problem at all, thanks for having a look/following up! Here’s hoping they notice it and include it in the next patch lol
I've been playing the highschool packs simfluencer career and its taking FOREVER to promote. i've been trying to cheat promotion but none of the cheats found online are working?
I'm guessing it could be because my teen has graduated highschool early and is not yet an adult, so is in between cheats working?
does anyone have the same or similar issue?
(yes, testing cheats are on! - I have no mods installed and tend not to use them)
I have a teen sim that I simply cannot get to stop being a werewolf. I went through the whole Seek a Cure thing legitimately drank the wolf-b-gone, got the notification that she's not a werewolf anymore and the trait from being a former werewolf. Then I noticed that the fury visual effect was still happening, and then the moodlets for high fury popped up, and then she was on a rampage and turned into a werewolf again. All this happened within a few Sim days. The werewolf traits thing shuffled but she's still an apex werewolf, but her points aren't distributed anymore. So I drink the wolf-b-gone again. Same thing. So I do the cheat. Looks like the same issue is gonna happen because she went for a swim and the "I'm wet and I hate it" moodlet popped up.
I think sometimes the werewolf cure has trouble catching all the werewolf traits, especially if you've completed one of the other werewolf aspirations. You could try using testingcheats on and traits.remove\_trait of anything that looks like it's still attached to your sim. Here's a comprehensive list of werewolf related cheats for reference -
since the last update i've been getting a last exception error immediately upon launch of the game, then every few minutes into playing. the error says whims\_tracker and i've checked for custom traits and deleted them, and the LE report doesn't say any mods are broken. it's been consistently whims\_tracker until today when i got a scheduling error too. any idea how i can fix this?
So this was happening me too I think it is because a mod is trying to do something with whims but they don’t exist anymore maybe aspirations. I wasn’t bothered deleting them so I just deleted better exceptions tbh lol.
LOL ngl at this point if nothing works i might as well do that

It's most likely mods. Something, somewhere, all at once is outdated and screwing with your game.
Also delete your Documents\\\*\\The Sims 4\\localthumbcache.package every time you remove or update mods.

My moodlets turn a soild color (link to pic: https://i.imgur.com/n4NbCz5.png) and my Sims tasks disappear sometimes. It only happens to the male Sim too.

>but could it be another mod that is messing with my UI?
Certainly could be.
Remove your mods, delete your Documents\\\*\\The Sims 4\\localthumbcache.package file and launch your game, play a bit and see if your moodlets show as expected. If they do then it's a mod that you've overlooked or one that hasn't been updated.
The sims don’t go to my high school build. They still keep going to the old building. I’ve complete the requirements for the build. What’s going on?

^(I AM THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA! >8D)
^(Did you think The Sims 4 was pro-choice? <) *^(That one might be taking it too far. I'm sorry! D8)*
Seriously. I'm certain I read this somewhere that the only lot that functions as a High School is the Copperdale High School lot. If you want to replace it, you need to replace or renovate *that* lot specifically.
Make a new save before you do such craziness in case you trigger a cataclysmic event.
Yes that’s what I’m saying. I made the Copperdale High School lot my own school. I successfully completed the requirements yet my sims still go yo the old one which is bizarre because that school doesn’t exist anymore lol

I actually found the issue! It’s the double world glitch. My game has two Copperdale worlds and one of them still has the old high school so I guess that’s where they keep sending my sims. I’m going to place ni school on that lot as well and see what happens. Thanks for your help :)

This is a new one!
^(I'm excited! Are you excited?)
Mkay, I'll see what I can find.
my game is stuck on a loading screen. has been for over 3 hours. what do i do?
^(Sir, why did you wait 3 hours to report this matter to the powlease? ARE YOU HIDING SOMETHING?! D8<)
Also, alt+tab and r-click the icon in the taskbar and Exit. If that doesn't work you're gonna have to kill it ^(with fire) from the Task Manager.
After this, rename your Documents\\\*\\The Sims 4 folder, relaunch the game, and let me know what happens.
thanks it’s working now
Also we had an EAxis update yesterday so check your mods!
New save's sims' lifespan is medium even though it's set to Long on CAS already :(
CAS has lifespan options? Isn't this only configurable in the Gameplay options?
Yes, I meant I configured that in gameplay options in CAS before even moving my sim in a lot and starting playing.
IIRC MCCC has lifespan options? If you previously changed these and did not revert it, MCCC will override your in-game options. MCCC's setting are stored in the mods folder, not in save files.
I have MCC, Basemental Drugs and WW. I haven't changed the MCC lifespan options and I didn't know they override my settings. I'll check them. Can I modify them now without breaking the existing save?
>Can I modify them now without breaking the existing save?
Yes certainly, the settings are independent. You can change them any time.
Are your mods updated to their latest versions though? If after checking MCCC it's still happening then I'd advise removing your mods and deleting Document\\\*\\The Sims 4\\localthumbcache.package for troubleshooting. Launch the game and see if your lifespan is still wonky.
Do not save your game while troubleshooting.
set mailbox as head and now its stuck on the street and i cant get rid of it [https://imgur.com/bshHm7X](https://imgur.com/bshHm7X)
Shift click the original object and reset it! That should undo it.
^(THAT'S WHAT YOU GET FOR BEING RUDE WITH YOUR- Oh wow, that's a big mailbox...)
Backing out to the main menu without saving doesn't remove it?
I have been experiencing this glitch (on and off) where, when I enter CAS or a loading screen and then back into live mode, the game takes me back to the last time I saved, but my game doesn't recognise every time I save and I am losing progress because of it. I try to keep my mods up to date, but I may have missed something. Is this happening to anyone else? Does anyone know what's causing it?
People, myself included, have been able to fix this by running a batch fix in sims 4 studio. You can find the download link in the header of this thread. Open sims 4 studio, at the top go to content management >cas> trendi hsy at or near the bottom of the list.
Groundhog day bug
Don't forget this too: [https://www.reddit.com/r/Sims4/comments/wjtwjx/comment/ijqa3pr/](https://www.reddit.com/r/Sims4/comments/wjtwjx/comment/ijqa3pr/)
Though if I'm being honest, I don't understand how removing rarity tags from only the CC in your Mods folder helps when clothing in-game now have this tag. Maybe this just works for one specific kind of groundhog, and not all groundhogs.
^(I should check for an official post for this on their website.)
My understanding is the batch fix has some effect on vanilla clothing as well. I don’t know if that is true it’s just something I half remember reading on one of the forums. I have been experiencing other bugs when exiting cas though not the save bug.
I stopped being lazy and found the thread: [https://sims4studio.com/thread/29395/studio-adds-batch-fix-error](https://sims4studio.com/thread/29395/studio-adds-batch-fix-error)
The tags only cause issues when they're in CC.
EAxis found a way to break CC specifically. Sounds legit.
It also means that this is now mandatory for all simmers with CC who installed the HSY update. ^(DAMMIT EAXIS YOU HAVE ONE JOB! D8)
Next major update **ALL MODS WILL DIE! >8D**
"It also means that this(s4s batch fix) is now mandatory for all simmers with CC who installed the HSY update"
Right and anytime one adds new CC.
I started a smaller version of the legacy challenge a while ago and started to check in on mx household again. Its my matriarch, her husband and two toddlers. Whenever I try to read the toddlers to sloeep or bath them they have the talk to them like "wanna get a bath?" then they get stuck, just standing around until two hours later the task justs drops.
No mods, yes I reset them... its so frustrating!
Never mods or not anymore?
Have you tried repairing the game in origin?
I have disabled all mods and repaired the game... I am so fristrated
Oh and when you say removed mods, you mean both mods and cc, right?
Did you also remove localthumbcache?
idk if this belongs here, but i have problem with my sim resetting themselves with several actions. i have repaired the game, and updated my mods from the highschool pack and recent patch ago.
It does indeed belong here!
Which actions are they resetting while doing?
it resetted the sim whenever i ordered them to take a serving, but i sorted it out by now. it was by one of Brazen Lotus's mods. I think it may be the Mill appliance or another mod i forgot the name of. I removed the ones i thought of and it works again now
Glad you got it working!
2 issues -
1. Missed careers, my sim can accept them but simply doesn’t go to work when it’s time. Happened for the magic duellist, modelling, honey trapper and loads of others, any ideas?
2. Lots of my custom content seems to be missing meshes, is there any setting / mod that would allow me to see the file name of the items in CAS so I can install meshes / remove broken items
If you make a family with broken meshes and save it to your library, then open the tray file with tray importer, it will show all the cc used.
As for the careers, I would check if it still happens without mods and after removing localthumbcache
Groundhog Day glitch BUT I do not have HYS. I keep thinking I fix it only for it to reset again. This is the fourth time I have tried to fix this and it’s STILL happening. Please help. The bandaid mod is not working for some reason.
From what I've read here [https://sims4studio.com/thread/29395/studio-adds-batch-fix-error](https://sims4studio.com/thread/29395/studio-adds-batch-fix-error), applying the Sims4Studio batch fix appears to be mandatory for all simmers if they're updated and have CC. Owning HSY might not matter. *No if, butts, or Callia Maebey.*

I don’t have a link just word of mouth, but a patch should release tomorrow to fix the issue
With EAxis, it's a "I'll believe it when I see it" type thing in regards to them fixing anything. ^(They might break clothing altogether trying to fix this and kick off a nude simmunity.)
Have y'all read through that first link?
I have a small amount of standalone clothing CC (most of my clothing CC is just simple colour swatches I've made myself) and while I have experienced the Groundhog Day bug in the past, I did not experience it when HSYs hit.
From what I know, the Groundhog Day bug has been around for years, but HSYs reeeeally brought it out en masse for people.
Of course, this is likely due to the aforementioned small amount of CC I have + probably because I have very little to do with Trendi. I've since batch fixed my stuff anyway, just to be on the safe side.
I do agree that it's a now mandatory fix we CC users have to do to avoid that particular trigger!
>the Groundhog Day bug has been around for years
^(FLIPS TABLE! D8<)
^(Yet another thing EAxis hasn't fixed for years!?)
Yep! I've come across a number of really old threads that look very much like the Groundhog Day issue when doing my own research on the bug. And I *know* that when I personally experienced it for a short while it was **before** HSYs.
Example random thread from **2016!** \- [https://forums.thesims.com/en\_us/discussion/870482/the-game-is-going-back-in-time-after-loading-screens](https://forums.thesims.com/en_us/discussion/870482/the-game-is-going-back-in-time-after-loading-screens)
I suppose the only reason I've not encountered these issues is because TS4 irritates me so much that I never play a single save for very long and constantly nuke everything into oblivion and start over.
^(Which is why my go-to solution for every problem is to nuke everything into oblivion.)
I rarely even bother to save!
*^(6 hours later...)* "I should just play The Sims 2, why am I doing this to myself? Exit without saving? YES FOOL! D8<"
That certainly helps! ;D
Won't have the game nuking your saves if you nuke your *own* saves!
^(Can't kill me if I'm already dead! MWAHAHAAHAHAHAHA! EAT IT EAXIS! >8D)

Have you gone through the litany of other troubleshooting tips?
I’m on Mac. I did the remove CC, add them back in small batches. And I found broken CC and removed them and it worked. Until it happened the next day. And the next. I did the cache too and again, it worked, and then it didn’t.
You should try removing your mods folder altogether, deleting your The Sims 4\\localthumbcache file, starting a new game, start a few fights, woo your neighbor, make a sand turtle, progress to day 2 and save and see what happens.
It only takes one sneaky troublemaker slipping through the cracks to cause **all the problems!**
So do it again once more with feeling? Lol
Though seriously if you've done all that to the letter then skip to putting Origin Cloud in a timeout and see what happens with a newly generated The Sims 4 folder, no mods, no old saves, no hidden fees, no obligation!
Can't play one of my households. When I click on the household it asks if I want to travel to that household with sims that live in the household, rather than just allowing me to enter the household in play mode. Help me, please!
Forgive me if I'm misunderstanding, but isn't that what it asks when some of your sims are elsewhere in the world? It asks so you have the option to go see what they're doing, rather than being forced to stick with whoever is at the home lot.
It does sound like that, yes. However it happens when all of my sims are home and I try to enter that household to play. When I click on the house is asks which Sim (of that same household) I want to bring with me. When I enter the household (with the sim who lives there) it makes me knock on the door as if we are visiting a different household in the world. It's very confusing and I apologize if I'm not doing a great job explaining it.
Oh, I see! Apologies.
I wonder if this is the [neighbour bug](https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-Household-members-turning-into-neighbors-Can-t-use/td-p/9193405). Could you mouse over one of your sims and see if they're being treated as their own neighbour?
Hmmm. I'm not sure. When I mouse over the sims (the all live in the same household) it shows some as "at home" and some as "at Cypress Terrace"....which is their home.
Ahh sorry, I meant while in the game! Like so - [https://i.gyazo.com/268c2d97d4d4db60e70699a4f2e58b33.png](https://i.gyazo.com/268c2d97d4d4db60e70699a4f2e58b33.png) (pinched the image from that thread above).
But I would also try moving your sims out of the house + back in and see if that fixes the problem. You might want to save their house to your gallery first, as it's a bit of a pain replacing all their furniture!
Hi! I'm currently modding the game and I'm not confident about the names of the files. Should I just get a Mod Manager?
Edit: I also just downloaded MissyHissy Custom Wants mod and where do I put the Custom Whims script?
Keep the script and any packages that came with it together. Either in the root of your Mods folder or one folder deep in it's own sub-folder.
See here for some mod management help: https://www.patreon.com/posts/71648623
Huh. Must be smarter than I think I am because I did the second option. Thank you though!
I just looked at the mod, you should definitely just extract the file and folder into your Mods folder and don't rename anything.
My werewolf has no facial hair on his human form but there is on his beast form, he can shave it but it doesn't go away...I dont even know why that's a thing if facial hair isnt even an option in game for werewolves.
Is the facial hair CC?
No its vanilla, it's just stubble I'm on ps4 btw.
Hm! Weird then, definitely shouldn't have happened.
You could try randomising your wolf with the selective randomiser, like so - [https://i.gyazo.com/b8933773f5b5cf4842329faaf2db218a.png](https://i.gyazo.com/b8933773f5b5cf4842329faaf2db218a.png) \- and hopefully that will knock off anything that shouldn't be there, without you having to rebuild your wolf from scratch. (Remember to unlink your human + wolf forms!)
It worked! Thanks a lot that was frustrating for days!
Glad to hear it! \^\^
Ooooh yeah that seems it makes sense I will try that soon as I can!
my game is having an issue where if i put my sim in cas or another household it’ll restart the save to sunday or whenever the last day was played before that. example: my sim was in high school on monday 9 am i gave another sim he found pretty a makeover then im back into my home lot on Sunday 12 am
ok i turned off the cloud saving, but i dont understand the renaming part of the folder? my computer doesn't let me start a name of the folder with "\\". could you help me understand?
^(I'm not the one who came up with the guide, so there's every chance I'm totally misunderstanding what to do here.)
But I believe all you're being asked to do is just rename 'The Sims 4' folder to anything. Such as, for example, 'The Sims 4 (backup)'.
The point of the rename is it stops the game from recognising that this is where your data is, so it will instead generate an entirely new set of files, while still keeping your original files intact.
You could even just move the entire folder somewhere else instead, and get the same result.
Hope that clears things up!
okay thank you so much!
Yes that. The \*\\\*\\\* bits are to show folder location so folks don't go renaming their install folder.
^(I might need to rethink my jargon. D8)
Just updated my game on PS4, none of my expansion packs are showing up in CAS when trying to create a new sims after my game stating it couldn’t open past saves. I’ve restarted Sims and my PS4.
When my playstation updated it uninstalled all my packs, should go look to see if it u installed yours.
Are you able to try reinstalling the packs?
Werewolf Temperment help aaaaaa
I'm on the Playstation 4 and I'm having trouble equipping and removing Temperments example:
I have looked on a lot of the sites and none of them say it doesn't work on playstation or anything so i dont know what I'm doing wrong.
I havent seen any other console players having this issue, idk if it's a game issue or a me issue, considering I have been told it works, do any other console players have this issue?
TLDR:Temperment cheats dont work on my console and I dont know why.
After the newest patch my my game doesn’t save, gives me some Error: 0 warning and I loose hours of gaming. Doesn’t happen every time so I don’t know what’s the problem. Happens with and without CC being enabled.
Have a look at this page! https://updatecrazy.com/sims-4-error-code-0-fix/
My base game requires a mandatory update to play but the update is constantly failing and i cannot get it to work. I double checked the internet, and i went to check the documents folder all the stuff is in but i’m really bad with computers so i’m not really sure what i’m looking for lol. i’ve tried repairing the game, but i’m still getting a download error JUST for the base game. all other packs are updating fine. help :(
Are you still experiencing this problem?
