Please describe the patch or change you made. ?

I can no longer choose the cooking show on television for my sims to gain cooking skills.  It's been almost a year since I noticed it was removed.  I figured it would come back in a patch but hasn't yet.  I sometimes I go three or four months without playing that's why it has taken so long for me to report it.

Hi @ujineekim 

 

have not have any issues with this. Does it happen on all tvs ? 

 

Could be you still have some mod that's interfering with this, so try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.
