@queenmakeda1 Are you using any mods/cc in your game and did you try all the other suggestions on the first post ?

So I've tried to repair it and it's crashed my computer. I've deleted everything (not everything but what is suggested to get back to a factory setting) and I am still getting hung up on the last two items to be repaired. Currently, it is Seasons and Tiny Living. 

 

And no, I've never had mods or cc.

sims only letting me get to worlds that i don't own

★★ Newbie

hi, so my sims has been really weird recently (i'm on a macbook air). i downloaded two new mods about a week and a half ago and went to go play with them. origin worked normal, although it did have to update since i haven't played in a bit. when i got to the sims home page and my families everything was fine, but when i select a family it only lets me access worlds that i don't have- like the world with get famous, strangerville, city living, etc. i only have the base version of the game and it never even let me see those worlds before now- it would just show the main 3 (i think) worlds that everyone gets. so i can only see the worlds that i don't own and it won't let me see the worlds that i have sims living in. also when i click "manage household" it doesn't show any of my sims. i thought it was bc of the mods or some other cc that i own, so i cleaned out my mods folder getting rid of anything that could be causing this. between cleaning it out i loaded and quit both origin and sims multiple times, turned my wifi on and off, etc. nothing's working and i have no clue what to do. i don't know how to uninstall the game or i would try doing that. please someone help!

Open Origin /My games library - right-click on the cover TS4 - option Repair. Origin will only fix the base game on a Mac but I think it will be enough to restore order to these worlds.

[NEEDS INPUT] Get to work CAS items are glitching

[ Edited ]
★★ 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? 1.67.45.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Discover university, island living, seasons, cats & dogs, get to work, strangerville, jungle adventure, outdoor retreat, spooky stuff, perfect patio stuff, and holiday celebration pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? It’s mostly the get to work clothing items the are glitching the sims but some of the base game clothes and skin tones are glitching too. I have no custom data for the sims so I don’t know if it’s a personal computer problem or if there’s something wrong with the game
What happens when the bug occurs? The sim will turn red and white checkered with question marks where the item is displayed on the body or it makes the entire sim checkered. Some previously saved sims will not even load into cas if they are wearing more than one glitched item. When the previously saved glitch sim is loaded into the world it will be red and white checkered
What do you expect to see? The clothes and make up to work properly
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 

The images attached are all of the same sim. The first one where he is checkered all over is caused by a base game shirt. The second image is where I had to click a different shirt to make only his skin checkered, it would not let me take it off by clicking the X on the shirt icon. The third image is where the checkers are being caused by the Get to Work blush. I have have another image of a sim would not load into CAS at all. I believe his alien suit is what is preventing him from loading which is also from the Get to Work pack

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.67.45.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I have the vampires pack as well as the magic pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? All of my characters as well as some of the building materials are now not showing properly. On their faces the color disappears, there is a ? on their faces, clothes will be white and red/black. I have added a screen shot.
What happens when the bug occurs? I can still play the game normally, however it is very distracting that this is happening. I updated my game and then this started happening.
What do you expect to see? I should be able to see the makeup I put on my characters, and the items I use in build mode.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I went to play the game yesterday, Oct 8,2020 and this started after I did the update. The only other one I loaded was the Legacy Edition.

Please see my screen shots to see exactly what is happening. This happens on building items too.
