Hi,

 

I have a bit of a problem. I was editing an outfit for a sim in a household with a new puppy (mixed). As I went to confirm and exit I was told to fill in all requirements.

 

It says that I need to fill in what breed the puppy is except when I go to select the text box to type in the breed nothing comes up to enter a name... No popup for word entry. I can't exit CAS without entering this. I have tried multiple times. 

 

Is there any way around this or a fix? Its incredibly frustrating.

 

Please help fix this

..

 

Thanks


- Workaround - Randomize the pet clothing and it should make the pet a mixed-breed.

No new breed name

★★ Novice

Hi,

I have the Pets expansion pack on XBox one and have successfully had my two dogs (different breeds) have a puppy.

 

However, when I went in to edit my Sim's clothes I couldn't save any changes and the screen jumped to the new dog with a message saying something like all fields must be completed. When I open up the name and personality traits of dog in that page the beed name is black but highlighted in red with an exclamation mark. I can't, however edit this at all. I have tried clicking on dog's body and then back but nothing.

 

I moved her out of the house and things went back to normal for the first household and I could edit them. The second household then had the same issues until I had to have her adopted.

 

Any ideas? I couldn't find anything anywhere about this issue.

Re: No new breed name

@Curlyzone That is a peculiar issue. Does it persist after shutting down your console? 

 

Powering Down your console completely (not rest mode). XB1

 

Unplug the console and let it sit for 2 minutes. Plug the console back in and restart the game.

@Pantheracus You can try using the home button to go to the console home screen and then press it again to go back into the game to see if the virtual keyboard appears.

I just had the same issue with the PS4 version. Was this resolved? Did this happen again? I would hate to get rid of the dog...

Re: No new breed name

@Player_ah7c2nkb The OP never came back and said one way or another so I have no idea if this was resolved. You can also try shutting down your PS4 completely. 

 

Press and hold the power button on the front until the console beeps twice, the power bar darkens and then the system is turned off. Let it sit for 2 minutes and then power it back on.

 

Did this happen from manage worlds/manage households or did this happen from using a dresser or mirror in game to "change sim" or "plan outfits" interactions?

 

Was the dog in your game also a puppy?

@Pantheracus I’m also having this issue on PS4 - I wanted to make changes to a random townie who spawned with a cat, but I couldn’t confirm the changes & leave the CAS menu because it wanted me to enter a breed for their cat. But nothing happened when I clicked on the text box, forcing me to exit CAS without saving.

Re: Can't enter dog breed name (PS4)

@FinalBossNyuma  Can you load that household back up and see if pressing the home button on the DS4 then pressing it again to being the game up causes the virtual keyboard to appear so you can edit the pet breed?

@PoptartJuniper I’ve just tried your suggestion - the text box remains inaccessible. 😞 Even after multiple attempts it remains greyed out & never prompts my keyboard.
