Hi @arlandroid

 

I can def. duplicate your issue. It can be solved by switching active families and back (or travel to a different lot and back) but the question is: what triggers it. Did you get any inappropriate behavior messages ? Was someone visiting you at the time ? What were you doing when you couldn't enter anymore ?

 

I see you had a sleep over in both saves. Did it happen after that ?

Would you be willing to share your save with me ?

 

If so, please zip your saves folder and upload it somewhere like dropbox, mediafire, googledrive or OneDrive and PM me the link.

Yup i've invited someone to sleepover, and if I remember correctly that happened after i leave her at work while she was still inside my house

 

while my sims done working,I can't enter my house anymore and my sims energy continuously depleted so i take a nap at park bench

 

i'll try your solution then or maybe try a new saves.

 

Thank you for your reply

Can't see/go inside my house

★★★ Newbie

Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? N/A
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Random chance?
What happens when the bug occurs? All my sims stand outside/near the park instead of in my house and I can't go inside or see inside the house unless I'm in building mode. It only gives me the option of seeing the roof and not going down any lvls.
What do you expect to see? The inside of my house
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 don't really have any other information.

Hi @Saelua_28

 

merged your post with existing thread.

 

Try going to another lot with one of your Sims and back.

 

Did you have a sleep-over ?

@arlandroid may have found the reason - I have a similar problem with some guest not being able to enter my apartment, and now that I read this thread, I agree that is started after inviting other Sims for a sleepover. However, the owner can always enter.
