Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I updated my game for the June patch before eco living came out and my game worked normally, then the emergency patch update came out and my game automatically updated and I was able to play normally until yesterday when I went to load my save file and I started to get the error message
I've tried troubleshooting, and unintalling my mod and i'm still getting the same thing
Is there going to be another update to help fix this issue for players who are having this problem after the two updates?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
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.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
