[OPEN] [CD] Editing vet outfits in CAS resets game progress

Re: Lost progress- Cats & Dogs

★★ Apprentice

I just had the same thing happen - but I think my save (or the relationship) reverted when I greeted patients. A dog I had gotten to know well before I went to the clinic acted as if I just met them - also, my aspiration progress went back, as did the vet skill, and objects added to the clinic vanished - the business panel showed I'd never even opened it. I had edited the outfits, or tried to at least. Nothing changed even though I edited. If I greet the patient's owner instead of the pet, the relationship doesn't restart.

Business reset The Sims 4

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs City Living Get to Work Outdoor Retreat Cool Kitchen Stuff Spooky Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Just create a business, edit a uniform or anything when you get far on and boom.
What happens when the bug occurs? The whole entire business gets erased back to stage one, you lose everything even the funds.
What do you expect to see? Maybe that it doesn't bloody break on me?
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

It just bloody breaks doesn't it? you lose all your hard work in my case hours of work! the lot got reset back to normal, employees fired, funds removed and not given back, every little detail is gone because of whatever the hell caused this.

Hi @shain131

 

this is a known issue for the vet clinic. Are you seeing it on restaurants and retail as well ? I tested both at the time and they were fine.

 

I merged your thread for now but would be good to know if you're seeing it on those two or just the vet.

Yeah well, is there anything I can do to get my lost progress back? or do I just start again and save a lot more?

Did you loose more than since you last saved ? There isn't much you can do about it.

Basically, it's don't edit the clothing.

I just had this too. All my skills reset, my relationships. A dog I’d adopted was removed from my household. Workers were fired, perk points lost and bits of the building were lost too. Basically it reset to just after I built my clinic except for a relaxation serum that stayed in my inventory. Does anybody know of any way to get back the progress or is it just a lost cause?

Hi @IScreamMemeQueen

if you didn't save in between, it's lost, unfortunately.

Sims 4 Vet Clinic Reset?

★★★★ Newbie

I just purchased the Dogs & Cats game expansion and have been playing for a few hours. I created a new household and then created a vet clinic. I mastered the vet skill and had the clinic at 4 stars. I went to look for the alternate vet coat that supposedly I purchased with perks and wasn't sure where to look, so I assumed I would have to create a custom uniform. I started doing that and searching around and never found it, so I clicked the x to cancel out. When it returned to the game my sim was on her home lot, not at the clinic, and it shut down my clinic because I suddenly had insufficient funds, had no employees, and my rating went back to 0 stars and no perks purchased. I was able to rehire one of my original workers and she retained her skill levels, but my sim has lost her vet skill and I basically have to restart, which is a bummer. Anyone else experience something like this? I didn't intermittently save so I don't have a save to go back to when the clinic was fine.

Hi @kschrader02

 

this is a known issue, unfortunately. Just don't use edit outfits until it's fixed.

Lost game progress after changing Vet Clothes?

★★★★ Newbie

Hello

 

So I went to assign different outfits to the Vets in my Clinic, and after I closed out of the CAS outfit modifier, the outfit wasn’t saved, and my sims were set back in their skill and career progress. However, everything I’ve done physically is still there, added furniture is the same, my Sim’s rocket is still built and upgraded even though her rocket science skill is gone and she can’t upgrade anymore. Any way to retrieve the progress??
