@ANANANANANANANAZ I really don't know then.

I've forwarded this so there's nothing more I can do.

Gallery Upload Username different from actual username

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

I used to have two Origin accounts, my current one (duisarcus) and my other one (marvelous_sea). A while back, I was able to get the stuff on marvelous_sea moved over to duisarcus, since I had games bought on both accounts and I wanted to merge everything together into a single account. After that, I noticed a strange issue in the sims 4 gallery - when I upload, my username is duisarcus but all of my gallery uploads are under the name marvelous_sea.

I would like to either get it fixed, or figure out how I can fix it so it posts under my actual username (duisarcus). Does anyone have any tips or info?

@Duisarcus It's a known issue but it seems random.

Do your new uploads show under the correct name ? I merged your thread with existing report.

@crinrict Unfortunately no Frown The most recent upload to my gallery (Alxi) was put up there less than an hour before I posted my question, and she uploaded under marvelous_sea too.

Saving a lot to the library displays the old Origin ID

★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.53.115.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Together, Seasons, Cats & Dogs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Change your origin ID and try to save a lot that you placed through your library before the name change?
What happens when the bug occurs? My old Origin ID shows up in the library and gallery
What do you expect to see? New Origin ID showing up in the library and gallery
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

I have changed my Origin ID today and tried saving a lot that I have built myself over the past few days to the library, so I can upload it to the gallery, but it always shows my old Origin ID when I try to save it. Saving other lots shows my new ID as intended, but for this one lot it just doesn't and I'm expecting this happens because I saved it to my library before the name change when I moved it to a bigger lot. The creations that I saved before the name change are also showing my old ID. Saving it, placing it on a new lot, deleting it from my library and saving it again doesn't update the Origin ID. The whole reason for changing my ID was to start uploading on the gallery, especially this lot, so this is really disappointing.

Origin ID and Gallery Name are not the same

★★ Novice

Hi!

 

When I first started playing The Sims 4, my origin ID was lukesmommy310. I recently started building some really cool houses and uploading them to YouTube, so I tried to change my origin name to simplysimmer19 to match my YouTube name, as I didn't really want people looking up my profile to see "lukesmommy310" anymore.

 

My player name in the gallery is now showing as SimplySimmer19, but my uploads to the gallery are still showing as lukesmommy310.

 

I've tried starting a new save file and repairing the game, but I can't get it to start showing.

 

How can I fix this?

 

Thank you!
SimplySimmer19 Standard smile

 

P.S. picture for reference if I didn't make it clear enough in my description.

@simplysimmer19 I merged your post with the master thread on this.

Do new uploads also still show under the old name ? It might take a moment although for some it doesn't' seem to work at all.

Maybe you find some tips in this thread.

@crinrict Unfortunately not. I tried to do another upload and it's still showing under the old name.
