Re: Why is the option for tiny living residential not showing up?

★ Apprentice
@Amiarah OMG OMG OMG... THIS actually worked. I did not get an error message before, but it seems that my origin was weird, and didnt fully install the pack. Now all language files are ok and my boxes are full with text, and the debug is gone from the items and they actually work. Thanks a lot for all the help. I love you guys for doing this <3

Re: TS4 Tiny Living - Glitched really bad!

Doesn't work for me sadly, I tried everything. My origin is now English, I redownloaded the game in English, still glitched. Doesn't matter if I repair the game, if I have mods in it or not, nothing worked so far and I'm starting to get seriously annoyed by this

Re: TS4 Tiny Living - Glitched really bad!

@Cara_Grace93  Which language strings are glitched: the ones from Tiny Living, from other packs or just the base game, or from everything?

Just from Tiny Living. The Objects say 'DEBUG', instead of the proper description, the lot type doesn't show (the place where the tiers are supposed to be as well as the description are just blank bubbles) and when I try to upgrade the Murphy bed the new upgrade options also just show as blank bubbles. I first thought a mod was the problem, so I removed all of them. Then I repaired the game, set the game language to German, repaired it again, set Origin to English and reinstalled the game again after uninstalling it first, sadly nothing helps and Tiny Living is still glitched. Everything else works fine, though

Re: TS4 Tiny Living - Glitched really bad!

@Cara_Grace93  There are a couple of places to look for the proper language strings, both in the program files for Sims 4.  Unless you changed the default install path in Origin, the file paths will be:

 

Program files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\SP16

Program files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Delta\SP16

 

In each folder, look for a file called Strings_[something].package.  Let me know what they're called, if they're there.  Then remove one, repair the game, test, and if it doesn't help, remove the other, repair, and test.  Please also let me know whether the files get replaced after they're removed.

 

If this doesn't help, you can try deleting the SP16 folder inside the Sims 4 folder and redownloading the pack.

there is a file like that, it's called Strings_GER_DE.package, which is really weird...

I even tried deleting it, and the whole folder, but it seems that even though my game and Origin are both in English, the Pack is automatically installed in German

Re: TS4 Tiny Living - Glitched really bad!

@Cara_Grace93  Try clearing Origin's cache and uninstalling it "the hard way" (only Origin, not Sims 4 for now), delete the SP16 folder again, reinstall Origin in English, and install the pack.

I tried, but Origin refuses to let me install it in English, I tried setting the language on my Laptop to English as default, but it still shows everything in German... Is there a way to force Origin to install in English?

 

Edit: Found out how to install Origin in English (fiddled with my PC settings and got the default language set to English, finally), deleted the folder, reinstalled Tiny Living, still says the language strings are in German...

Re: TS4 Tiny Living - Glitched really bad!

@Cara_Grace93  I'm sorry, I don't know what else to suggest other than uninstalling the entire game again, then installing only the base game and Tiny Living.  You can disable automatic game updates in Origin: hover over your username, select Application Settings, and under Application (the first tab), scroll down to Client update.  This won't prevent Origin from downloading your other packs later, but it will give you a chance to test whether TL alone finally installs in English.
