Check for updates to your Mods and CC. Add it back a little at a time while testing until you have found all that are broken.

Please only PM me when asked to do so. Questions and answers belong here so everyone can benefit from them.

Aug. 2021 update - broke my game

★★★ Newbie

The August 2021 "small update" for Sims 4 has completely broken my game. My household is gone. Half of my cities are gone. I cannot start a new game (even after downloading & installing the expansion I've been wanting) When I try to start a new game with new sims they're all invisible. Help please.

@beasleyj_97  Please clear Origin's cache:


and repair the game: open your Origin game library, right-click on the Sims 4 icon, and select Repair.


I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.

Re: Suddenly, missing textures?
