Hi @rinstrides 

 

Hm .. really though to say what happened. Unfortunately they can't be recovered if you don't have a backup

 

So unsure what to suggest.

 

All I can do for now is keep an eye open if there are more reports of it still happening. If it's just the father Winter children, it does seem like the bug might still have some instance that triggers it.

There was a bug a while back where all father winter children were removed.

 

The bug has been fixed but the children will not be back, unfortunatly

It's been a while .. and I just check on my Father Winter Babies and they're fine.

Are you sure your game is patched ?

How many Sims do you believe are in your game? (I want to rule out the possibility of culling.)

Unlimited doesn't save you from culling though. It just the amount of 'safe' families you can have.

 

Anyways, do you maybe have a backup from before they disappered ?

I do, however it is very far back and not a recent one.

 

I noticed that Father Winter can be different sims, if the fathers were "culled" somehow, would that cause them to disappear?
