You might wanna consider getting a 64 bit OS but that's better for discussion in your other thread.

 

Thanks

This has happened to me twice today... it's starting to get annoying, especially because i'm also experiencing the grafting glitch when trying to graft plants.

Hello @shainamch13 

 

Does your Sim know anyone with the Kleptomaniac trait?

No, not at all. It has now happened 3 times. It has been just one of the higher-level, but regular computers, I go to use it, and it disappears.

Yes, that's true, @crinrict.  I was just asking about Klepto in case this was different than what the original poster described. 

 

@shainamch13 Would you be willing to share your save files?

Which computer disappears ?

 

 

Willing to share your save game ?

If so, please zip up this folder: documents\electronicarts\thesims4\saves and drop the file to this Mediafire-Link to upload.

 

Please make sure to name the zip file with your user name.

I see this is still open so I will add my experience.

Computer disappears when excavating fossils or selling collectables
08March2017

Computer disappeared while excavating fossil
Scenario: When selecting action to Excavate Fossil and Sim is using computer the computer vanishes. This has also occurred when selling collectables while at the computer.
No CC / Zero Mods / Game had been repaired just prior to playing.
Notice in the image it verified the fossil had been excavated but shows the computer.
All content and patches to date.

 

I have had this happen in older saves as well. I do not usually combine the two actions of using computer and selling or excavating items.

 

Note: Went back into the same save and tested on the two lower level computers. Was not able to duplicate.

The same thing just  happened to me. I thought I had accidently sold it, my sim had been using it a few minutes before I went into buy/build mode. I was still in that mode when I noticed it was gone, so I undid everything I had done but it didn't come back. so I went to  a previous save the one just before I went into buy/build mode. It wasn't there and it isn't in their family inventory.
