OK thank you for the info.  If you run into the problem again, and have saves from before the issue occurred, we would like to see them.

I'm a bit confused, how can I rename the lot and shut down the game if I shouldn't save my game?

Use save as and save it under a new name.

My house in SIMS 4 disappeared after travelling

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

So my house in Sims 4 disappeared when I went back home from travelling with my household

before my house, the lounge that we travelled to disappeared as well. I thought, "huh, maybe this is just a glitch and when I get back home, it will be back"


but little did I know, my house disappeared.

I tried doing the drag the folder of The Sims 4 to the desktop and put it back again but nothing happened.

-no signs of demolishment
-no signs of my house burnt to a crisp
-just nothing, only the mailbox

Hi @Snokiry 

 

I merged your post with the current thread on this issue.

 

It's very unclear what's going on but could you try the workarounds given here and maybe share your save as asked by @SimQARobo

Hi @alliecat23822 

 

this is unfortunately an issue since the game out but it's very inconclusive why it happens. 

 

Other than trying a backup before it started happening there doesn't seem to be a reliable way to fix it but there's some other suggestions in this thread.

Sims 4 Lots deleting

★★★★ Newbie

This started about a week ago. When I would go into a lot up build or update, the lot would be deleted.  And during game play, my sims went to a lot (The Shreaking Llama, and the Rattlesnake Bar - both lots that were with the pack) and as soon as the screen loaded, there wouldn’t be a building on the lot.  When I try to build on a vacant lot, the room box would not have a ceiling or floor.  It’s almost like the game is just deleting anything that I am trying to build or update when the lot loads.  

 

(I hope I am explaining this clearly)

Hi @brown3395 

 

I merged your post with existing thread.

 

This is unfortunately a very inconclusive issue.

 

Do you have a save from before they started disappearing ? Are you on PC or Mac ?

This is happening to me, and there is no way to provide a safe-file from before they started disappearing, because it is happening on brand new saves.
