Build mode won't work at all

★★★★ Novice

So, whenever I go into build mode, it just doesn't work. nothing appears at the bottom and the options at the top (notification wall, gallery, menu) don't do anything, so I also can't actually exit the whole game. The lot/house is there, and I can rotate the camera and zoom in and out, but I cant build anything. The same thing happens when I go into it from game mode, I can move existing things, but nothing else. I also can't go back into game play. Please help Frown

Re: Build mode won't work at all

Could you give windowed mode a try?

If that fails, try a clean boot: http://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2014/09/resetting-the-game-to-factory-settings-without-reinstalling/

Do you have any mods or CC (custom content)? Try taking that out.

No. I've seen things saying that it doesn't work very well with windows 10 so it might be that, although it don't know why it would be because it did work at first but only stopped recently.

My game is doing this too. I have tried to repair the game and it didn't work. So I don't know what to do and I'm really worried about my game. I also can't go into the gallery. Can someone please help me. Yes I do use cc but I haven't downloaded any new cc recently and it only happened recently.?

HI @Simalim2345 

 

mods/cc get outdated with patches so it's possible you're using something that's not compatible with the game anymore.

 

Are you using any kind of UI mods ? If so, make sure you get the newest version from the creator.

Happy Gaming
