Crime Scene House Still Marked As Crime Scene

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don’t know?
What happens when the bug occurs? A house was once a crime scene, now that I moved a Sim in, it still had the crime scene evidence ( graffiti, a banana, a hair pile, an apple ) which I was able to delete, but witnesses keep coming in and I can’t lock the doors I only get the option to set as front door.
What do you expect to see? Crime scene houses should be cleaned and act as normal lots again.

Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

A house was once a crime scene, now that I moved a Sim in, it still had the crime scene evidence ( graffiti, a banana, a hair pile, an apple ) which I was able to delete, but witnesses keep coming in and I can’t lock the doors I only get the option to set as front door. I’ve installed a fair amount of mods and CC, but it takes me a while to find each mod and CC so I don’t want to delete. Plus the sims will look weird and maybe bald or naked if I remove my mods 😂 Anyone that has had the same issue or knows a way to fix this?

Hi @nikakaru 

 

Could you please test on a save with no cc installed. For testing, it doesn't really matter how they look Wink

 

Just make a backup of your saves, disable all mods and then try again.

 

If that doesn't get it back to normal, please test a new save if you have the same issue.

 

Issues reported in the bug forum need to be duplicated on vanilla games.

Happy Gaming

Hey! I did what you said, but I got an error message! Something saying "intitilization errors at start up". I've gotten this before and had to uninstall the whole game. But now when I put the folder back in, the game launched, I got a white screen, it wouldn't respond and then it just closed on its own. What the heck is going on?
