Re: Invisible Household Members/Broken Tiles

@hlcastile Merged your post with the master thread on this although the invisible Sims are new.

Could you try right-clicking on the game and hit repair game ?

Happy Gaming

New patch broke my game.

★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? EPs - all except Cats & Dogs GPs - all except Dine Out SPs - Vintage Glamour
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Open the game and see if Newcrest is in the neighbourhood menu. Also check if sims are present and flooring is displaying correctly.
What happens when the bug occurs? I move my mods outside of the game and downloaded the new update because it was required. I then opened the game to a save where I was playing with Newcrest. The last played household shows in the start menu but have vanished I opened a different household in the same save. The sim's panels are there but he isn't show and the flooring looks weird - purple with blue and red and question marks. I did the same with other households in the same save and it happened again. I can't seem to do anything at all. The same applies to a different save and Newcrest is again gone. I decided to start a new save to see if it affects new games but can't do anything in CAS,
What do you expect to see? I would like Newcrest back so I can play my families again.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The patch from 25/11/19. I only installed it at this point because it was required.

Update - I repaired my game and I think it's ok now.  I guess something went wrong during the update process.

When creating a sim their body comes up white and red with question marks all over it and also It's not letting me edit their clothes or face

Open 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 and you have any mods move the mods folder to the desktop and try without it.
