Re: Island Living Invisible House!

★★★ Novice

Any community lots that I built or are currently building are still visible from the map, no matter which families I play so I think it's only residences that disappear when I'm not playing that family.

@Jeannam08 I merged your post with existing thread on the issue

Do you happen to have a save from before they start disappearing ?

Sims 4 houses keep disappearing

★★ Novice

Hi, I've been having this problem for a while where my sims houses keep disappearing. I've usually managed to fix it by restoring an old save but its not working anymore its every time I load up the game so I'm constantly having to restore old backups and lose progress. When I load up the map my houses have been replaced by the original sims houses (even apartments) and when you load the lot up its completely empty. I use mods but I've even tried to start a game without them and the same thing happens I've also tried repairing my game and it doesn't do anything.

Re: [OPEN] Houses/Lots disappear

@MeganRoseOshea  I've merged your post with the master thread on this issue.

 

This is still unsolved, but it is being investigated.  It would be great if you could upload an affected save or two for the Sims team to check out.  As stated in the first post, you can link the upload(s) here and tag SimQARobo (like I tagged you), or you can PM SimQARobo the link(s) to wherever you uploaded.  Instructions on how to do so are linked here:

Thanks @puzzlezaddict Standard smile

@MeganRoseOshea, as puzzlezaddict mentioned, a save game in which the houses haven't disappeared yet would be helpful! You mention you have backups of save games in which the issue hasn't appeared yet, but houses eventually disappear when playing in those saves - would you share those with us?

I've been having this issue for a long time, I've never posted because I saw this was an unfixed bug and a combination of restoring my game, restarting my laptop and repairing Sims obsessively works eventually.

 

At this point I've removed all the mods and reinstalled the game, and it still did happen eventually. 

 

I do have CC, but I managed to get a save before it broke. I thought it was adding lots from the Gallery that did it, but now I'm fairly sure it happens when I visit a lot that was placed from the Gallery, then go to an apartment building.

 

Here's a link to the archived save:

Hope it helps get this solved, even though it's a CC heavy save.
