Hi,

 

I have a bit of a problem. I was editing an outfit for a sim in a household with a new puppy (mixed). As I went to confirm and exit I was told to fill in all requirements.

 

It says that I need to fill in what breed the puppy is except when I go to select the text box to type in the breed nothing comes up to enter a name... No popup for word entry. I can't exit CAS without entering this. I have tried multiple times. 

 

Is there any way around this or a fix? Its incredibly frustrating.

 

Please help fix this

..

 

Thanks

@Pantheracus You can try using the home button to go to the console home screen and then press it again to go back into the game to see if the virtual keyboard appears.

@Pantheracus I’m also having this issue on PS4 - I wanted to make changes to a random townie who spawned with a cat, but I couldn’t confirm the changes & leave the CAS menu because it wanted me to enter a breed for their cat. But nothing happened when I clicked on the text box, forcing me to exit CAS without saving.

@FinalBossNyuma  Can you load that household back up and see if pressing the home button on the DS4 then pressing it again to being the game up causes the virtual keyboard to appear so you can edit the pet breed?

@PoptartJuniper I’ve just tried your suggestion - the text box remains inaccessible. 😞 Even after multiple attempts it remains greyed out & never prompts my keyboard.

@FinalBossNyuma Thanks so much for checking and getting back! Can you just select the pet and assign a breed from the breed menu?

@PoptartJuniper Yes I can - I’m unfamiliar with the pets CAS, but as far as I’m aware choosing a breed spawns an entirely different cat with a breed name a single trait (unsure if that’s intended or not). If there’s a way to select a breed without changing the pre-existing pet then I’ve not yet figured out how. 😲

I am also having this problem. Never been successful at breeding pets I've owned in the past so it never came up but now it has happened and, as mentioned before, it is incredibly frustrating. I'm not even able to change the breed to something available in the game as I'm told I can't edit pre-existing Sims.

I'm playing on Xbox but it seems like this may be an issue across consoles Frown

Hi everyone so sorry for my late reply.

 

I unfortunately couldnt get passed this bug. I eventually loaded the game back up and sold the puppy. 

 

Later on in the same save file I did have another puppy but didnt come across this issue. The new puppy was just listed as mixed breed without me having to do anything at all.

 

There was no real way around it other than restarting and unfortunately getting rid of the pet.

 

I hope this gets fixed as I didnt want to have to get rid of any pet. I also enjoy breeding pets in my game and hope it doesnt happen again.

 

I also hope that I have helped others by posting about this bug. Seems to be a console problem
