Yamachan not appearing…

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? Français
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.156.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All, except Journey to Batuu.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Be in any of the Mt. Komorebi neighborhoods and expect to Yamachan visits near the statue during the day.
What happens when the bug occurs? Yamachan not appearing despite it's enable their visits.
What do you expect to see? Yamachan not appearing despite it's enable their visits, no matter if you turn off and on the toggle via the Yamachan statue, it's like Yamachan is not summoned by the game or something.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. 1.68.154.1220

I noticed because Yamachan is literally my favorite mascot ever in the Sims 4 and during this week I remember saw it a few times, few selfies and so, but since this update: 

1.68.154.1220 Yamachan didn't appear at all!… I'm worried because I just being updating and being very careful with it, so I don't know what's happening, usually the Sims 4 is very stable for me.

 

Ps. In case anyone has any questions I tried all, really: turn off/on the toggle in the statue, start a new safe, see if Yamachan is in one of my family bins, lock doors, unlock doors, see the door allowance of event NPC, checking if there was any conflicting NAPs, disable NAPs, see if there was any conflict with any holiday (as if), use the game with mods, without mods and nothing, Yamachan remains missing!

@DidiDahl I haven't really had a chance to play since the newest patch but as there haven't been any other votes yet, I'm not sure what's going on then.

Guess will wait for others to shed some light if they have the same issue.

@DidiDahl Even during festivals ?

If you start a new save for testing, does he also not appear ?

He didn’t appear in any festival, indeed I noticed because it was the Festival of Youth and nothing, and no, it didn’t appear in the new save… Frown

I repair my game when I updated it and deleted all the caches as usual when I take mods out

Well, this is a follow-up, but for the TL;DR: IT'S SOLVED, you need to repair your game, change to English if you play in other language on the launch game settings, run the sims, quit, and change the language again if you don't play in English!

 

That's it, it was the last resource and apparently worked… and yes, I finally took a selfie with Yamachan once more.
