  • I don’t know why this happens, but on the lottery days when you take your sims out to eat or to a community lot, all of the sims get stuck and won’t leave.

  • Uh, Ever since the newest patch loaded in my game I haven’t been able to play my household. It just gets stuck on the household loading screen, any help?

    • If you have mods, you might have to see if some broke in the fixes. If not, exit the game, go to Origin, and repair the game. If that doesn’t work, then maybe reinstall it, if nothing works, then I’m sorry, wait until a new patch.

  • There should be an update on the sims babies. I miss being able to walk around with them and interact with them more like the sims 3.

  • When I’m getting my hair and makeup done at the gig if there is a fail with the hair she leaves the chair and the makeup/hair artist is gonna do it all again I’m using half of the time getting hair and makeup done hope you can fix it

  • Since the patch, I can’t look at the number of bedrooms and bathrooms a lot has. When I’m choosing a home, I press the bedroom to see the number and nothing happens. When I try to select lot type, nothing happens.??
