I have also noticed this problem on PS4 since the last update. It has happened on two occasions and both were when my sims were photographing. When I leave photo mode there is no cursor. The only thing that helps is to restart the entire game. 


This is the same issue I am having...every time I photograph something my cursor disappears!  I have tried everything to get it back but so far the only thing that works is completely closing out of the game and restarting.  I never had this problem until the most recent update either and it is so frustrating!

HI! I’ve found a solution for this problem. When this occurs you need to try and click free cam mode at the top right screen, move around a bit than press circle ⭕️! It should reappear afterwards! Works for me every time! Good luck

@TygerNight If you still have the problem, I solved it with holding R3 until the camera switched in to first person option. when I exited the cursor was back.

I never thought of trying that, thanks for the suggestion! My cursor has been obediently visible lately but I'll keep that in mind if it happens again. Standard smile

Is there still no solution to this? This is a problem people have been having for years and as of Oct. 2019 it’s still an ongoing problem. I tried every kind of solution I could and nothing is working. If I honestly have to restart again I’m not even going to continue playing this game considering one of the games glitches is always the reason I always have to restart.

I finally figured out what’s happening with the cursor when taking a photo. when you go into your inventory or phone you’re using the cursor to get to it so when you go in to take the photo just make sure to leave the cursor on the middle of the screen or just anywhere but where you clicked to get to the camera because it will make the cursor stuck in the menu. it’s kind of hard to explain, i hope you understand lol i actually forgot to move the cursor to the middle of the screen and the cursor disappeared but then i went in to take a photo again but this time leaving the invisible cursor in the middle and it reappeared when i exited the camera. basically just make sure the cursor is visible before you take the photos. if you leave it selected on the camera it will be invisible

Same problem here. Looks like it may be simply invisible. But it's annoying as hell. Tried just about everything

I was also photographing right before it happened. Also noticed the game starting to lag after taking photos

Thanx. Going back and forth to first person view worked for me too

I have the same issue after using the camera from my sims inventory, using the phone has not triggered it yet.
