After the recent sims 4 update, my sims 4 won't work

★★ Novice

After the recent sims 4 update, my sims 4 won't work. It's showing up really weird. I took out all of my cc and mods so its not either of those. I had to download legacy edition and that didn't help either. Someone please help me out here :/ I attached some pictures of what it looks like

Is your mods folder completely empty? For example, didn't you leave there a poses to the Gallery or a few CC?
These graphical errors on screens occurred in several players in the game after the patch but they disappeared after fixing the game in Origin.
Origin/ My games library - right-click on TS4 - option "Repair game"
You have to wait until Origin will fix all packs, not only the base game.

If it will not work try doing a factory reset as described in this post:

Weird glitch in CAS with white and red patches on the skin

★★ Novice

So the last time I played The Sims 4 was in August. I'm finally on my Thanksgiving break and I updated the game and got the University expansion, Cool Kitchen Stuff, and Realm of Magic. I have other packs but I've never had this weird glitch. I also already reset my files. I first downloaded the new legacy thing when I saw the glitch but my PC is Windows 10... so what do I do now? Also some icons for packs are missing.

CAS doesn’t work in Sims 4

★★★ Novice

When I try to use Create A Sim, for a new family or existing family (Plan Outfits), my Sim does not load. The screen stays blank. I am unable to click on the Sim. Has anyone experienced this recently with Sims 4 CAS? 

I have no mods and no cc. My laptop meets the new requirements. I was literally just playing the other night and used Plan Outfits and CAS loaded just fine. Help!!!

Re: CAS doesn’t work in Sims 4

@Slashfan0216  I've moved your post to the PC tech section, since it sounds like some troubleshooting is in order.

 

Please move your entire Sims 4 game folder out of Documents\Electronic Arts and onto your desktop.  Launch the game, which will create a clean folder, and try to load CAS.  If it works, the problem is something in your old game folder.  You can copy files from that folder to the new one in batches, testing each time to make sure CAS still works.  Leave your Saves folder for last, after you've confirmed everything else is fine.  Here's a full list of the files you'll find in your game folder:

If you can't load CAS even in a clean game folder, please run a dxdiag and attach it to a post.

Or, if you happen to be on a Mac, please post its full specs, as described here:
