Unable to load game after update

★★★ Newbie

Hello,

 

After I updated my sims 4 with the most recent update, I cannot seem to load my game.  It was stuck in the loading mode for hours.  I finally got it to work, but then this is what I see.  I already tried "repairing" the game a few times.  Please help!

Re: Unable to load game after update

@Coc0kins  Please clear Origin's cache, restart your computer, and repair again.

(Let me know if you have a Mac, because repairing in macOS is more complicated.)

 

If that doesn't help, please move your entire Sims 4 folder out of Documents\Electronic Arts and onto your desktop.  When you launch the game, a clean folder will spawn with no content.  Don't add anything to it yet; just start a new save and look for other missing textures like what's in your screenshot.  Let me know if you see any.

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

All my sims are red black and white with question marks and I don’t know how to fix it, I really love playing this game and I cant play when it’s like this. I’ve tried to repair the game in origins, re installing the game and removing my cc, it didn’t work. If you could help me it would be amazing. Thank you

Hi @aimee010x 

 

I merged your post with the master thread on this

Try repairing your game by repairing your game through Origin (right click on the game and choose repair game)

Move your Mods folder to the Desktop and delete localthumbcache.package. Then test the game.

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.

@latynna94621--can you try right-clicking on the game in your Origin library and choosing 'repair'?

 

also delete localthumbcache.package from documents / electronic arts / the sims 4, if you haven't already.
