@Sals1007 Do you have a mod that lets you pick seasons per vacation ? This isn't vanilla game behavior. You usually pick a season before you start the save game and that then goes for all worlds.

Hi,

 

No, I haven't got a clue what MOD is. I am quite an amateur. I buy and install the games and can use cheats and that's about it.

 

which is why I came looking for help :0

 

Any ideas why this happens?

 

Thanks.

@Sals1007 Are you asked at the beginning of the game to pick a season ?

 

Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • ConfigOverride, if you have your own configuration files.
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

'choose a season to play in' is stuck

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

Hi,

 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? 1.87.40.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Sims 4, get to work, cats & dogs, city living, cottage living, seasons, dine out, outdoor retreat, vampires, backyard stuff, kids room stuff, laundry day stuff, nifty knitting, romantic garden, tiny living, 
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have your sim call to take a vacation, then the pop-up that lets you choose the season to play in, will not go away.
What happens when the bug occurs?My sims cannot take a vacation because I get the pop up that makes me choose a season (I get this every time I go to another lot) except when I select a season, it just reloads the same 'choose season to play in' screen over and over again.
What do you expect to see? Not having to choose a season every time I change lots. Or at least accept the season I select and proceed to choosing the destination for my vacation.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? No
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? I installed seasons and outdoor retreat at the same time, after that it occurred (but it wouldnot have been possible without those specific packs..)

 

I tried to uninstall and reinstall the game, it did not make any difference

@AvengeTheCookies I merged your post with the existing thread on this.

You shouldn't even be getting a pop-up. This issue is strange.

Did you get the pop-up when starting the game or did you just install seasons ?

Could you try the suggestion above ?

Does it also happen on a new save or just the current one ?

Hey there!

I'm having the same issue, I got the deluxe edition with the pets expansion and added seasons later. This bug occurs every single time I try to take a vacation but it also asks to pick which season to play in every single time I travel anywhere, weather it be on the same map or if I travel to another one. I tried disabling the seasons pack and that seems to have corrected the issue on my previous save file, but I'll try to start a new game and see where that takes us.

 

Thanks!

On PS4, with testing cheats true enabled, when I click on buy retail lot in my gameplay, it comes to the screen where you can choose the season whenever I pick a season and click continue the choose a season screen comes back and it keeps doing that.

@MamaErvin1324 You have to pick a season to buy a retail lot ? You should only be prompted at the beginning when first place a family in your world. Are you not prompted there ?
