No we don't understand really. You don't support mods because you can't directly profit from them but you do profit from them and your game wouldn't be as successful as it is if there wasn't mods and CC. I've spent thousands over the last 20 years on Sims and I can tell you something, you wouldn't have made a penny from me with your box standard build or buy items, I would have lost interest by sims 2 but because of mods and CC here I am 45 still playing Sims and spending a hell of a lot of money that I earn on what I call my hobby. I've purchased every game and every pack, apart from knitting ( like why?) and I certainly won't be purchasing star wars especially after this update. 

Its about time EA started listening to all of its customers not just the young and a select few. 

As for deleting links to help your customers get their games back up and running, well shame on you EA, you broke them in the first place. 

 

@jpkarlsen Absolutely a gamer changer, thank you!

 

@Bluebellflora I wouldn't say blindly, as soon as I open my Sims game it updates. It actually tells me my game will not play without updating when I've tried to stop them in the past.
Obviously a lot don't know about the settings feature but this was a hard lesson but I'm glad I know now. Bye bye crappy updates! Thank you!

 

@KeitaDarkwolf There have been plenty of updates that haven't screwed with the game in this way. Usually it a few items which is good and expected but not at this magnitude. Your right there are great creators that produce mm cc like felixandre but thats mainly for build items, buy items are another story. There are also game windows and doors that are also broke so this is an EA problem. Most CC users update CC on the regular its vital to use but not on this scale, its impossible unless you only use a few select items. Plus there are a lot of retired creators so you can't update anyway.

S4Studio folks seem confident they can get a batch fix.

 

They're looking for samples for broken CC so head over to their site (Google: S4Studio) and check this thread

 

Sims 4 Chat > patch-related issues that may need a batch fix here

 

Can also help you keep updated on what's going on.

Re: cant see through windows

★★★★★ Guide

Since these windows are custom content, they probably need to be fixed by the person who made the custom content. You should post about your problem on the website where you found them. If you don't remember where you found them, it's probably best to just stop using them and look for other windows that do work.

What is your current game version number? 1.66.139.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When using a door or a window CC
What happens when the bug occurs? The door or window does not show up and only the border of the window or door appears on the wall.

Window and Door CCs not showing up after latest update. I'm new to playing the Sims so I didn't know about disabling automatic updates. Does anyone know how to revert back to the previous update? Also, how could I tell EA about this problem so they could resolve it?

Re: Sims 4 Update for CC

★ Novice

It's a glitch with the new update. Creators will have to update their stuff (or wait for a batch fix from Sims Studio). Peacemaker says he has probably over 400-500 items (windows, doors etc) to update, IF he can manage to do it; he says it would take weeks, but he figured out what the problem is (it's listed on his page Peacemaker's Place). We will have to be patient and wait this one out or use Maxis windows/doors, unfortunately.

Re: Sims 4 Update for CC

Does this mean we would have to delete all the CC and redownload the updated content? Sorry, I'm new to playing Sims. Also, how could we contact Sims 4 Studio for them to do a batch fix?
