Sims 4 blank bubbles

★★★★ Newbie


I have emailed you about this once before and had no reply. I am a huge sims 4 lover but every time I go to play my game and click on anything from a toddler to a bed, table and fire place blank command bubbles!!!! They have hunted me for ages. when I downloaded sims 4 get together these problems have started to occur. I saw the you tuber Emma Blackery has had the very same issues with her blank bubbles, this problem also creates new items with no description '*DEBUGG*' this is all I get when I click on a new item. All the new toddler items have this problem, I have no idea what any of the toddlers want they all just have blank bubbles. I have all of your expantion packs and I am quite annoyed to tell you 80% of them have this major issue! if you can not fix this I would like my money back. Trinitycat101

I tried changing the language, it works! I changed it back and every single option shows up. It's so much better, thank you!
