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

★★★ Novice
@crinrict I have the same issue as the poster above you. I have tried to repair my game. Change the language of origin and the game. Uninstalled and fresh installed. Removed language files/strings and updated. No mods present at all.

I still have no text for all tiny living items and gameplay features.

My location is the Netherlands but everything i have is installed in english. Changing all this around does not solve the issue. Do we need a patch?

@iSkullFox If you go to the installation folder, do you have an english string file for tiny living (SP16 folder)

Interesting, no the Dutch file shows up. I have deleted that one, repaired it. Still no text. And places a new dutch string.

Delete both the base game and SP16 one, repaired. No text. 

Tried both again and instead of repairing I updated, no text. Can I get a separate string somewhere to put into that folder?

@iSkullFox Did you also try the method deleting the exe file (or move to desktop ?)

Tiny living doesnt work in english?

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Newbie

I got Tiny Living on Tuesday but havent been able to play because the tiny residential lot type just shows as a blank. Im currently reinstalling everything and started my game after the base game and tiny living was installed to see if its working. I had my game language set to german and it worked. 

I thought i solved it but when i changed the language back to english, because I like playing in english better than in german, it went back to not working.

 

I dont have any CC or mods installed currently so it cant be because of those. Does anyone have a solution?

@disneyniam It's a problem of the language file not downloading properly. See first page for more info. (merged your post with master thread on this)

@crinrictI did remove the .exe file. but unfortunately that hasn't helped. I am seeing everything in the Dutch langauge, but the English files aren't installing. I am currently doing:

- remove .exe
- remove language file base game and sp16
- switch to german
- repair
- (try game and look)
- remove .exe.
- remove all language files both maps
- switch game to english
- repair

try

I will report back :D

@iSkullFox This may be a long shot but could you do the solution for this issue: https://crinrict.com/blog/2020/01/origin-issues-with-installing-and-updating-origin-and-origin-games... then try repairing again ?

Okay, I tried my list. And both of the solutions on the blog. 

 

Still no text in my English game. Frankly I am stumped and amazed.

 

Switching the game to German and going down my list revealed that the German string won't download either. It keeps inserting the Dutch one. Maybe the pack is locking in the client locating and disabling other language downloads?

 

Keeping the settings as shown in the blog, my last attempt to solve this will be once more to remove everything. Deinstal sims and origin and installing. 

I could play the game in Dutch, and have the text show...but I really prefer English.

 

Should I solve the issue I will report back. Thank you for all your help @crinrict

I did re-install everything, including origin which then yelled at me for deactivating the helper service.
I turned that back on, installed only the base game and Tiny Living and boom! English text. Installed all the other packs and it still works.

Why on the 4th(!) fresh install things did finally seem to work I cannot tell you, perhaps following @crinrict blog did smooth things over. I am very happy however that it works!
