  • You should now be able to once again, use speed controls when in cinematic camera (aka tab camera).

Fixed in Patch 1.48.94

 

 

Bit mean ... didn't even have time to add this to my compiled list. 

 

HAPPY HOLIDAY and THANK YOU Gurus

I'm having this issue in the standard camera mode. The keybinds for time control don't work at all in live mode.

PS: Q and E are still working for me in cinematic mode to raise/lower the camera.

yeah I just edited that part out. I was confusing the controls for this game with another's (derp)

I still can't control the time in cinematic mode, though. I can control it outside of cinematic mode though

I'm having this same problem. When in cinematic camera mode the 0, 1, 2, 3 keys to control time don't work. This is basically preventing me from recording scene in The Sims 4 for doing machinima and animations. I hope that this will be picked up and fixed soon because this is really a showstopper for me.

I can't control my time with 0 1 2 3 in any game mode. I delete all my CC and mods and it still doesn't work. I try to keep playing by just clicking the speed and pause with my mouse but it really makes the experience not good. I don't even want to play because of it. Also it just started yesterday after updating my game.

Are you sure you remove the UI cheat extension mod ? That is known to cause that issue. You might need to delete your localthumbcache file as well.

Also, if you're using the 0 1 2 3 keys on a numpad, make sure num lock is ON.

I'm having the same issue! I thought it was just me, this makes the game totally unplayable for me. I use this mainly for story telling. Frown I've tried everything from doing a factory reset, to repairing, took out all mods. And nothing. I hope they fix this soon or find out some way to get around it.

I am having the same problem. I have tested it with both the keyboard numbers and the keypad. Verified the numlock is on. 0-1-2-3 keys are not active while in Cinematic Camera mode (tab) and this is definitely causing issues with storytelling.
