So many reports now that removing cc sofa fixes this issue so I'm going to mark this as solved for now.

 

Please report if it doesn't help.

I was also having what sounds like the same issue right after installing Cats & Dogs.  I finally moved my sims out of their home, onto a random lot, and then moved them back into their original house, and it fixed my issue.

Please try @XoXNeoQueenXoX suggestion above. If that doesn't work:  

 

 

 Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

Repair your game after renaming the folder.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

Hi @nichswilliamson

 

merged your post

 

Please remove all your mods/cc and try without.


You might need to move them out and back in but the food issue is most likely mod related and the rest sounds also as if caused by a mod/cc

I have the exact same problems. And did everything you said. I really think it's because of cats &dogs. Yesterday nothing was wrong with my game before I installed it.
