Hi, so I've got an issue with my mixologists on both community lots and parties. I can't order drinks or grab chips or anything similar from them because the options won't show up. It only shows the usual friendly, funny, etc. options.

I have tried without mods and repaired the game, but it changes nothing.

Please help, I'm getting frustrated.

Hi @sinisterbden 

 

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • ConfigOverride, if you have your own configuration files.
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

Good Luck

First of all I want to thank you for your answer.

 

So here's my current situation: Moving out all the files and starting a new save game worked, but I still repaired my game anyways. Moved in only my save files and suddenly the same problem happened again. So it's apparently my current save, sadly.

 

I suppose there's nothing to be done about that then?

@sinisterbden Could you post another screenshot without a lot of mods in the game ?

Is the mixologist properly tagged as such ?

Good Luck
