[OPEN] Houses/Lots disappear

[ Edited ]
Hero

Problem

 

When I load my lot or go to work with my Sim, the game simply loads an empty lot

 

Cause


Unclear

 

Things you can try

 

  • DO NOT SAVE YOUR GAME IN THIS STATE
  • Go to build mode and rename the lot (Suggestion by Dorabella123)
  • Shut down the game completely and reload it.
  • Load a backup
  • If you have saved your house to the library/Gallery, you can try bulldozing and place it again.
  • Try going to build mode from the map and see if the house appears there. If it does, save it to the library.

Please upload your save games and PM the Links to SimQARobo or post them in this thread. 

 

If you have any saves from before it started happening, even better.

Happy Gaming

sims 4 unable to play

my sims 4 hasn't been working for about 2 weeks. whenever I click to play on a household it loads and the houses aren't there. which means I cannot play the game as there is no houses/community lots I can go on.

This seems quite a common issue. I merged your thread. Could you provide the info asked in the first post.

Re: [INFO REQUEST] Houses/Lots disappear

This post in spanish helped me and they found a solution for me.

 

http://answers.ea.com/t5/Los-Sims-4-Espanol/Mi-casa-desaparece/td-p/4618057/highlight/false

 

Here I answer the questions

 

    • Are you using mods and custom content in your game ? If no, did you remove or never use ?
    • No, I used to in The Sims 3 but not in The Sims 4
    • Do you download houses from the Gallery ?
    • No, I don't use to in The Sims 4
    • Which expansion do you have ?
    • I only have a free pack: Holiday Celebration
    • What's your operating system ?
    • Windows 7
    • When did this occur ? When you loaded the game or on traveling ?
    • When I loaded the game and tried to play.
    • Is just the house gone from the lot or the Sims too ?
    • Only my house. My neighbour's houses are also there. The only thing missing is my house.

Hi @Txell_25

 

thanks for answering the question.

 

Did you have any paintings in the house you drew from reference ? And MoveObjects or BuyDebug items ? Did you place the house from your library or build in that game ?

Similar problem as the previous person. I did have one painting by reference if that helps.

 

House is gone both on startup and visiting. It's visible on the overview before you enter the lot. I also just added a hot-tub to lot. I have all the expansion packs and windows 7.

Did you try a backup ? If so, did it occur again ?
