I Can't see the sim panel on sims 3 and my sims picture is invisible

★★★★ Novice

I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix this next problem I'm having. Firstly I can't see any of my sims needs etc. I can only see the part of the panel that has their wants on it. In addition to this their image is invisible. I tied reseting my sims but nothing has worked. I tried to move them out and then move them bacck into the house but it is still processing their eviction and it has been for a while now. I don't want to delete the family.

  • Does this happen to only that family or do you have the same issue if you start a new game ?
  • Are you using custom content or mods ?

You might find some solutions going through this link: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Game-Corruption/m-p/968290/

I had this problem before but I couldn't find a solution. You could try starting a new game and then going to edit town to see if your household was saved there.

Well, it happened once before when I had started a new game. My sim had a horse and then the icon for her a was the horse and it never switched. I deleted that family because I just started it.

Oh and I have a couple custom content but I generally do not get alot because I have had problems with it before. I actually do not know what a mod is though.

Does sound like the game corrupted. 

 

How long have you been playing that game ?

Do you have a backup you could try ?

 

If you use save the game automatically makes one. It has the extension .backup. Removing .backup from the file name should active it (you need to rename the corrupt one first)

I'm having the same problem. I just got the horse, and now I can't see my sims wants, I only see the horse head. I'm wondering if getting rid of the horse will get rid of the problem?
