Re: create a sim

yes I repaired the game through origin twice and I’ve also uninstalled and reinstalled and it’s still happening. 90% of everything is red and white! It’s only started occurring since I downloaded the three new expansion packs. I’ve deleted all the mod cc and it’s still happening. I just want to play sims Frown

@taylorbenwell95 

 

There are some other suggestions

 

Suggestions how to solve this

 

  • Check if all your CC is still compatible with the game
  • Repair the game through Origin by right-clicking on it
  • Delete the following file (it will recreate, it's a cache file): documents\electronic arts\the sims 4\localthumbcache.package
  • Reset your game to factory settings
  • Reinstall your game

Did you also try those ?

Sims 4 Update Glitch

★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.65.77.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to work, Cats and Dogs, Dine Out
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? After being prompted to update the latest version of the game.
What happens when the bug occurs? Everything seems very glitchy. In Create a Sim, I can't make modifications to the sim when you click on a certain part of the body. For example, clicking on the eye to change the eye shape. All the base game locations have gone away. When I uploaded a sim I had used before from my gallery and went to a location, the sim and the dog had no features and were just completely pitch black dark. I could not do anything in build mode because it never fully loaded.
What do you expect to see? Just literally the opposite of what was described above.
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 

I was thinking maybe I need to restart my game but I'm not sure how, but I am also wondering if any others are having the same issue.
