why does every patch or release break the trash cans,sinks & dish washers? sims won't use them for days after every new release & patch. it's making where i don't even want to play. i replace the items over & over & they still won't use them. does anyone else do through this? i have deleted my cc, didn't fix it.
Hi @Zenkitty33 - I have never gone through this with patches. If every patch breaks something, it's a good bet it's due to mods or cc. That's the price of playing with mods and/or cc; they add a lot of value to your gameplay but they do take a lot of management.
The best practice to follow is before every patch, copy your saves folder and move your mods folder to the desktop (so you don't lose them). It's not enough to just delete the cc or turn it off, you need to delete the cache and repair the game too. After updating the game:
If a new game works, then try your existing games to see if everything is working. If everything is working without mods, then copy back your mods & cc a few at a time, checking in game after each add to make sure they're still working correctly. If you have a lot of mods, use the 50/50 method. If you find any cc or mods that are causing an issue, check with the creator to see if they have an updated version.
For now, if you're experiencing this issue, move your mods folder to the desktop, make a copy of your saves as a backup, and follow the instructions above to find the offending cc. You should be able to use your trash cans, sinks & dishwashers. If this doesn't solve your problem, reply back and let us know what specifically happens - do they try to use them but can't get to them, or do they just ignore them completely? The more detail the better. Good luck and happy simming!
