august 18 update broke game

I've never had an update make the game unplayable before, so I guess was due. The game finished downloading the latest patch, and I opened my household and was confused -- everywhere I looked, random items were missing. The chairs at the dining room table. A sink in the kitchen. A chess table. I assumed it was something weird and tried to just repurchase the items -- except the items are there. I can't place anything new in their spot. I confirmed this by moving the dining room table to my household inventory -- lo and behold, the chairs were there too. But placed on my lot, and they were invisible again. I can't click on them either -- for all intents and purposes, any item that exists in this weird invisible world is there but completely unusable.

 

Then I realized the flooring in the bathroom and bedroom were just squares with giant red question marks, so I assume there's a texture issue occurring now. Any one else having these issues?

 

UPDATE: Repairing the game fixed the missing furniture and texture issues inside my home lot, but the worldview still has missing textures everywhere, from the solar panels on my house to the flooring around the outside.

@crinrict yes, that was next step I did.

It seems it fixed the items in my household lot but random textures are missing in the worldview now that weren't before, haha. The flooring around my house and the solar panels on my roof and a few other things are just purple blobs in the worldview.

If that's all that stays broken, I will accept it haha.

@i5o7w5x5pgbg Is your Origin and game the same language ?

I would try another game repair. Maybe it's extra flimsy. It does sound like there's till stuff missing.
