Sims 4 live mode Red outline

★★★★ Newbie

Sims is frozen! 
So my issue, I can do everything in build mode just fine, but live mode wont move, like none of the sims will when I try and do tasks,

Already tried pulling different games up to see if it was just one load but its the whole game. 


When in Live mode, I can "click" the tasks, and they are visibly added to the task list but nothing ever happens and the whole image in any loaded game mode in Live mode has a red border.

The troubleshooting I've found come down to emptying the inventories and turning down your resolution settings. 

 How has it gone with your own game OP? The first time this happened I reloaded a previous save. It's happening again and all recent saves are effected.

Yeah, yeah, I've submitted feedback..


The first and second times this has happened, I've opened Build Mode first when moving in a new Sim instead of heading into Live first.
