When I Start My Game  on the Loading Screen  in the Right Hand Corner comes that Orange Box about the saved games being in a newer version of the game.  There is no Button to click to go to My Families or My Worlds and it automatically takes me to create a sim

game breaking bug -> gallery lots with sim made paintings from outdoor retreat

★★ Novice

Description of the problem:

 

If a lot downloaded from the gallery contains sim made paintings from outdoor retreat, and you don't own it, the paintings appear in build mode with a '?' .

If you don't delete them, the next time you try to access that lot, either in build mode or live mode, you will be redirected to the 'choose worlds' screen.

Subsequently when you try to play any sim, or enter any plot in build mode, you are redirected to the 'choose worlds' screen, rendering your game unplayable.

 

I've tested this in a new game with two lots from the gallery that contain outdoor retreat paintings :

 

-Hydrangea Night NoCC by agusiamal

http://www.thesims.com/en_GB/gallery/346001E0FBF811E4892B780525D3AA9B

 

(in the comments of this lot other users say that it had messed up their game)

 

-Paintings by ju1ka:

http://www.thesims.com/en_GB/gallery/3D093C60DD3511E481086931A5A3888F

(collection of all sim made paintings including Outdoor Retreat landscape paintings)

 

 

Temporary solution :

  1. Delete all cache (cache, cachestr and localthumbcache.package)
  1. From the map view place another lot on top of the one containing the outdoor retreat paintings

 

Then everything comes back to normal.

And you can place the lot with the paintings again, delete them, and then use the lot normally.

 

I've tested this 3 times, in 2 old games and in 1 completely new game.

 

I own the base game only, I have no CC and no mod.

My game is patched to the latest version.

 

I hope these paintings can be removed or replaced like the rest of the unowned content when we download lots from the gallery Standard smile

 

Thanks -

Véro

Re: [ISSUE] Loading family just loads Map again - Need your bugged save games

★★★ Newbie

I just want to play my sims,

 

When I load a family to a Lot, if I don't get stuck on the map and I actually do make it to the Lot my Sims aren't there and there are blank slots in place of where my sims should be.

 

I don't really care about my save games If can just play my new family it would be great.
