Question Mark Vandalism Everywhere

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
What is your current game version number? Latest version/edition
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Go to work
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Question marks on sims and scenery
What happens when the bug occurs? My sim has question marks all over her body, not her clothes, and she has red and black squares all over her body like a checkerboard. They appear in either red or black. Equipment and scenery is also vandalized in this. The avatar of any sim doesn't show any trace that this is supposed to happen. It isn't an expansion pack or an installation.
What do you expect to see? My sim shouldn't have any marks on her body whatsoever, the scenery should not have any red blocks destroying travel, and equipment shouldn't be vandalized.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

Everything else functions normally, but I cannot restart computer or update the game itself. Please fix this bug, I would love to get back to playing The Sims 4 if everything wasn't ruined!

Re: black squares and question marks over my sims body?

Yeah, I had that problem too. Is it all over your scenery? I had big red squares all over my back round and equipment, and the other sims in the game had it, too.

I'm so sorry! I couldn't find my original posts, I thought they had been deleted so I had made another one. I'm really sorry for all the trouble! I will try the solution. Thanks for getting back!

@katrineoganders Make sure your game is closed. Then you should be able to repair.

★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.61.15.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? City Living, Get to work, Dine out, parenthood, and luxury stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Every lot has the issue: the tiles are all displayed as question marks
What happens when the bug occurs? The game-play is fine, but all of the tiles, in every lot, is marked with a question mark. I could manually change them, but I was hoping for an easier way.
What do you expect to see? The tiles should display a design other than a bunch of question marks.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Every tile in every lot has question marks on them. I haven't played in a few months and when I started up the game two weeks ago, all of the game-created lots had this issue wit the tiles. I can manually change them, but was hoping for a less time consuming fix.
