Issues with parties

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I could have sworn that I posted a topic earlier today about having a problem with parties since the 11/4 patch, but I can't find it so I'm posting again. My initial post was to report that after the patch, I tried to throw a Birthday Party and none of the guests showed up except for the Bartender and Caterer. Later during that same session, I threw another Birthday Party and only one guest showed up, though I had invited far more. Since I play with mods in my game, I was encouraged to try throwing a party without mods and see if that helped.

 

Tonight, with a few "must have" mods installed, I was able to throw a House Party and guests did indeed attend. Then I realized that the list of available parties seemed shorter than it used to, so after the party ended I tried having my sim plan another, and the only options were: House Party, Dinner Party, Wedding Party and Birthday Party. Black & White Party was completely gone. I exited the game, removed all my mods, cleared my Origin cache files and reloaded. Still, when attempting to plan a party, only the 4 mentioned above were on the list. So yeah, it's not the same issue I reported earlier, but I'm definitely having some wonkiness when it comes to parties in my game. Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Please try on a new game to see if the issue persists (for testing purposes)

 

Also did you also delete your cache files to make sure the mods are no longer active ?

Which cache files should I be deleting? I deleted all the Origin ones.

 

NM, found a page detailing location of cache files to delete, will see if that has any affect on the issue later, as well as starting a new game.

OK, I removed all mods and custom content, cleared the cache files and started a new game. Immediately went to Plan Social Event via the cellphone and the only options are House Party, Dinner Party, Wedding and Birthday Party. Definitely borked.

Works in mine so lets see if a factory reset solves it: http://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2014/09/resetting-the-game-to-factory-settings-without-reinstalling/

 

Start your game without putting anything back and start a new game.

Ok, so I backed up my files and had the game create a new The Sims 4 folder. Upon entering a brand new household in this factory-reset game and selecting Plan Social Event from the cellphone, I only have the same 4 options: House Party, Dinner Party, Wedding and Birthday Party. Still missing Black & White Party.

 

For what it's worth, I also did a game repair via the Origin client a couple days ago, but that did not help either.

Are you also missing the other extra content that came with the deluxe version or are those missing too ?
