During gameplay , I wanted to switch households . I clicked on the family I wanted to play , but then when I tried to enter the house, the arrow turned gray and was stuck on mapview. I tried restarting my computer and my game , but no luck. I have a feeling that I have to delete all my Sims , but I really don't want to ! Is there any way to fix this without deleting all my Sims ?
-This problem applies to all my households in the town I mainly use, but doesn't apply to the other towns that I have
-I only have the sims 3 base game and it was recently bought
-I have custom content downloaded in my game
-I recently downloaded the newest update for the game
So when you restart your game, your stuck on mapview now or does it only happen when you try to switch active households ?
If you're stuck: Do you have a backup you could load ? The game usually makes one itself, if you save with save and not save as.
To restore a savegame made by EA follow this steps (credits to ModTheSims)
If you're not stuck but can't switch:
1. Do you have the World Adventures EP ?
2. Do you have a Pangu's Axe in your home ? If so, make sure to move it to the family inventory.
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.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
