The Sims 4 Get to Work: The Lots keep disappearing

★ Novice

I've been playing the Sims 4 Get to Work for about four days now and the lots in my town keep disappearing and I don't know why. This only seems to happen when I play the detective career. The first time it happened the police station and my sims' house disappeared.  I started a new game file and the same thing happened, so I replaced the police station and rebuilt my house and it works fine as of now; however, now every lot my detective sim goes to when he's on duty  the lot isn't there so I can't find clues or anything. How can I fix this so I don't have to keep replacing buildings?

Hey guys! So I've figured out the problem!

This worked for me so I hope it does for you too.

 

You need to go into Documents > Electronic Arts and then drag The Sims 4 Folder to your desktop.

Then, play your game and try it out to see if the problem's fixed (Note: Your saved games and all settings will have gone at this point, but don't worry you'll get it back in a second!!!) 

So if it's working now, open the folder you dragged to the desktop and the NEW The Sims 4 Folder that will be in the EA Folder. 

Then, drag Custom Music, Saves, Screenshots, Tray and Mods (if they aren't outdated as it will just mess up the game!) And everything should work!

Lemme know if this works for you all!

I've been having this same problem since yesterday. It's so annoying. I finally got my sims house to not disappear after loading up an old save file but when my sim went to her job as a doctor, the hospital was gone. I've contacted online support, but there's nothing they can do since its a problem for the developers.

I have the same problem, except I haven't bought Get to Work! Everytime I travel to a lot - the lot just isn't there. Does anyone know how to help?!

Hi guys,

 

Seems quite a few users have this issue.

 

  1. Did you build those houses yourself, download or premade ?
  2. Are you using custom content or mods in your game ?

Hey, thanks for replying! I did build the house myself, but lots such as the museum or the bar are invisible too>

Is it just happening in a particular save game or also if you start a new game for testing purposes ?

Did you exit the game completely before trying another save game or load a new one from the main menu ? It seems, some bugs are contagious to other save games if you don't restart the game.

 

Sometimes you even need to remove the autosave (save00000001.save)
