Hi @Len282 

 

yes, they will. Which is why you should test on a backup of your save until you find the mod/cc that's causing the issue.

 

So basically, create a copy of your save by either backing up the files in document or use the save as option and choose a new name in game. Then remove your mods and test on the backup of your save. If it works, you can start looking for the mod/cc that causes the issue.

 

Use the 50/50 method: http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Finding_Problem_Custom_Content

 

Once you found the culprit, you can put everything else back and go back to your original save.

Hi @Len282 

 

I moved your post to the tech forum for troubleshooting.

 

Please create a copy of your save (save as) and test without mods on that copy to see if you have the same issue.

 

Mods/CC can be outdated with patches and you might just need to update a mod you're using.
