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 ....
  • 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.

@marblecjskIt is probably due to modifying Game Time Speed. This has previously broken other things in the same manner. Try deactivating the Game Time Speed function, and sun bathing should work normally again.
To try it the simplest way possible, try with MCCC in and move out your mc_settings and let the mod create a new.

(Another example of an issue that happens with Game Time Speed can be found in Deaderpools faq for the mod.https://deaderpool-mccc.com/#/help/faq#TimeSpeedSeasons )

@destinerachea Tanks for the feedback.

I removed the mod link as we're not allowed to link mods, just name them.

@itsug Yeah, I figured that out. I just reverted the speed back to default, didn't need to move or delete the settings. Thanks though!

I had this happen to me in my game as well. I deleted the towels and added new ones and it worked fine.

reference to @coz626

 

~I have that same glitch where my mermaids will cannot sunbathe in the water because it is always too cloudy but they can just fine in human form. I have no mods and I only have the standard game with Island Living. Does anyone know how to fix this?

 

@Guiboulou Did you ever get it figured out? Where you able to get your mermaid to sunbathe in the water?
