I can play the game fine until i try to select certain things for instance i couldn't click on load game in the main menu but could click on everything else. When i've tried to make a sim my cursor wont let me select hairs or clothing pieces but others were ok to click. I've restarted the game multiple times and clicked the repair button on the origin menu but nothing has fixed it. Please help.

@aweomepuppiez were you able to open inventory in game?

Do you have any Mods or CC? If so move your Mods folder to the Desktop and delete localthumbcache.package. Then test the game.

If it works now check for updates to your Mods and CC. Add it back a little at a time while testing until you have found all that are broken.

@aweomepuppiez Do you have UI extensions mod in your game? I had a similar problem where I couldn’t click a lot of things in the game and it ended up being due to UI extensions mod being broken after the update.

Change resolutions setting of the screen in the game options. There will be given various options that match your monitor. Try different ones and see after which your Load Button will recover

@kreatora Does this resolve the problem I have of not being able to click on certain things?

Part of your game screen is not visible for your cursor and it is not active.
Anyway, check it out - it worked for other players like here.
