I noticed I also couldn't go into the Selvadorado lots even in Build mode. So I scoured Origin until I found a Repair (game) option in the settings. Did that, and voila, problem resolved. So after three weeks, and zero help from the devs, I managed to fix the problem myself - now THAT is the type of top notch, players-before-profits level of customer service I have come to love and expect from EA. Kudos.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
