[FIXED] Names vanishing from tombstone

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

So far three sims have died on my lot. After a period of time the name on the tombstone disappears replaced by a _____________ to denote the missing name. The epitaph engraved on the stone remains. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

EA Sims Team

Update: 06/02/2016 – PC Version 1.19.28.1010 / Mac Version 1.19.28.1210
Urns/Tombstones: The name of the Sim associated with an Urn or Tombstone is now stored with that item, so that if the Sim is culled we can still display their name.

 

This should be fixed now. Previously affected tombstones will not be fixed.

Just as an addition to this, I just realised when this happens the "greyed out" version of the person disappears from other sims friends lists. So my sim's parents died, the same time as their names vanished from the tombstones, they also disappeared from his friend list. I am wondering if this is an actual bug or some purposefully designed aspect of the game. I am also wondering if it is fallout from using aspects of "manage worlds" ... the parents names vanished after I had been bringing some gallery sims into the game via my sim's household ... might be a coincidence.

This is linked to the disappearing sims issue. The dead sims have been purged.

I have the same issue. I updated my game to the 9/25 update right when it was released. Later that night my elderly Sim died. I went into the game today and his name was gone from his tombstone.

Does he still appear in the relationship panel as dead Sim ?

That explains the missing name then.

Will this problem be solved? I would like to create a family cemetery to remember their ancestors Sims. Nameless graves become with time.
