The floors are black in SIMS 4, can't see the furniture or other items I can typically interact with/click on. Doesn't matter if the lights are on or not.

Crashes after getting to 99% loaded

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

I get to the main page with NEW game, load game. I click load game and then it takes me to manage worlds and I click on a family/household to load. Then the page will load until about 95-99% and crash then take me to the XBOX home page. This issue has been going on for 2 weeks and you guys closed the other thread saying it was solved.

 

This issue is not solved and I've already done everything I can on my end, I've uninstalled all the add-ons, base game, deleted my files from the console, and recovered them via the cloud but nothing works-- so I don't know what the problem is. Also, the only time I got it to load the entire house was black (floors, walls, people) which made it impossible to click on anything. PLEASE STOP making new content if you all cannot maintain the packs you've already released; at this point, you all have bitten off more than you can chew.

  2. Platform: Xbox Series S
  3. Which language are you playing the game in? English
  4. How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
  5. What is your current game version number? unknown, currently uninstalled.
  6. What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? 
    1. Expansion Packs Owned: Cats & Dogs, Get Famous, Seasons, Discover University, City Living, Get to Work, Cottage Living, Snowy Escape, Eco Lifestyle, Island Living, Get Together
    2. Game Packs: Vampires, Parenthood
    3. Stuff Packs: Vintage Glamour, Laundry Day, Toddler, Kids Room, Bowling Night, My First Pet 
    4. Digital Content Packs: Gnome on the Go, Awesome Animal Hats, Life of the Party, Up All Night Content
  7. Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know. I just play Sims 4 and then realized the basic functions that come with Sims 4 Base Game refuse to work. I mean my sims cannot use the toilet, cook/eat, sleep, socialize, focus on hygiene/bathe, or have fun because I can't click on anything and the menu options don't pop up. We need to be able to access the menu options across the game because the Sims need to do these things or they die.
  8. What happens when the bug occurs? I get to the main page with NEW game, load game, scenarios, options. I click load game, click the file I prefer, then it takes me to manage worlds and I click on the family/household I always use. From there, the page will load until about 95-99% and then crash the entire game and take me to the XBOX home page. This issue has been going on for two weeks and you guys closed the larger thread saying it was solved. However, this issue is not solved and I've already done everything I can on my end, I've uninstalled the base game, add-ons, xbox files and retrieved them via cloud, and I don't know what the problem is.  Additionally, the only time I got it to load the entire house was black (floors, walls, people) which made it impossible to click on anything.

  9. Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console -- never used.
  10. Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Occurred after Sims 4 switched to in-game updates instead of using XBOX update/most recent update

Console sims delivery

★★★ Newbie

Unable to receive the sims delivery hair on console. When I try to restart my game it crashes. But when I choose to ignore it & keep playing my game works. So it’s just the delivery of items not working. 

also There's an issue when you upload a room/lot to the gallery and some items even base game items go missing, both in uploaded room/lot and in game.

12/15 sims delivery crashed my game

★ Apprentice

I have sims 4 on Xbox console and I have everything (no cc or mods obviously because I’m on console). But after the 12/15 sims delivery, my game will not load pass the screen where you choose what house to play. There’s a lag when choosing, the house then it just crashes back to my Xbox Home Screen or if it loads everything is black. I’ve uninstalled everything 2x and hard restarted my xbox, saved under a new slot, deleted existing game, etc. Nothing is working any suggestions?

@ktkasumu If you are on Xbox series please add me too to this the more we can get the faster it gets sorted the only thing I can suggest for the mean time is to put your console in offline mode not just the game but your whole console this is the only way we can even play the game. https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-Consoles/Can-t-load-saved-files-or-households/m-p/1109433...

Re: Xbox series x loading issue

@Macsas69 Is your game crashing when trying to load households? Or is it the game not loading at all?


I don't work for EA. I'm a player helping other players. I do not respond to PMs.
