Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

@crinrict,

 

Thanks for all your help today!! I've made sure (before seeing your latest post) yet again to plead. I've been able to plead twice already, so even though I couldn't plead the first time, I can now. I'd like to attempt to trace it back to a certain mod, so I can help others, but is there any way to do it besides putting them all in one by one?

 

Thank you so much!!!

@crinrict @StarryMight @Sid1701d9,

 

This is gonna sound super cheesy, but thank you SO much for all of y'all's help. I thought that when I posted about this bug, maybe somebody would give just a random comment in like eight months, but @crinrict and @Sid1701d9 have helped me through it and found a solution in less than 24 hours. I can't express my gratitude.

 

Thank you so much!!!

Raiyah <3

 

P.S. Thank you to @crinrict for moving my post so I didn't have to!!

@NoorPlayys I have this problem too! It has been an issue since I got the game, which is before I installed any mods or cc.

I have this same problem, every time the grim reaper comes, the Plead option is always grayed out. I don't use any mods/cc. I pause and play incessantly to continually check if the Plead option opens up at any point and it never does
