Re: [XB1/PS4] Can’t rotate sim in create a sim

★★ Novice

I’ve noticed that if the right analog stick isn’t rotating my Sims in create-a-sim, by clicking on the “Save Household” button, then once the preview loads pressing circle ○ to cancel the save I can once again rotate them. Strange fix but seems to work every time for me.

Hi, hope you can help, since the latest update I cant seem to rotate or zoom in on sims in CAS, usually the right stick did this but now it doesn't do anything, had a look at your basic controller list and it doesn't seem to mention how to zoom/rotate either, please help

Create a sim Problems

★★★ Newbie

I add a household from my gallery but iw wont let me rotate or zoom in on the sims also there is a display of what command each button does(for example if i havent selected anything it will say x:catlog options, o:back, square:toggle catalogue,) and if i select something (example; the sims shirt; triangle:remove object, L2: undo, R2: redo). I'm not sure how this happened. I was just playing as usual and all of a sudden when i opened create a sim it was like that. It does the same display when in building mode and does the same not letting me rotate or zoom.

Product: The Sims 4
Platform: PS4
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? 1.28.72.3400 (64-bit)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything except My First Pet Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In build mode, edit the uniform of any restaurant staff by going into CAS. Additionally, sometimes simply switching between pre-made outfits will immediately boot you into CAS, without asking if you want to go into it (which is normal behavior).
What happens when the bug occurs? After exiting CAS, L1/R1 no longer function in build mode or in the Gallery. Exiting build mode, bringing up the cheat/debug bar, going into Live Mode and exiting to main menu and then reloading the save does not fix the issue. Only rebooting the game fixes it.

Additionally, the Gallery also bugs out visually with the left-hand categories flowing off-screen and 'wwwwwww' repeated next to controller icons that extremely rapidly flash through every button save the D-pad, Options and Touchpad. This bug remains after exiting build mode.

What do you expect to see? After exiting CAS, game should allow navigation with L1/R1 and editing additional uniforms. Gallery should not bug out.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console, no mods available.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Unknown. Have not tried to edit a uniform in months. Have bought numerous packs since getting Dine Out, and there have been numerous updates.
Please describe the patch or change you made. N/A

I have also recently re-installed the game (unrelated to this bug), restored licenses, rebuilt my PS4 database and started a brand new save.

You may need to add another sim to the family in the same instance in CAS for the bug to show.
