Sim Invisible and game Crashes, Help! [SOLVED]

Post by chibimunchi on Mon May 27, 2013 9:17 am

I re-downloaded sims 3(with all expansions expect for supernatural and seasons) a few days ago and everything worked fine, but as we know in sims all good things must end.

I just teleported my sim to a gig location and gave her the task of auditioning for a gig.
As soon as she changed to her work wear she became invisible.
(This has happened before in the past so I didn't think much of it, I thought I would just change her outfit)
BUT, this time she could not move or do any of the actions I gave her. I even tried teleporting her away from that area but she just invisibly stands there.
So I saved the game, which in hindsight I shouldn't have, thinking it might be fixed when I came back but she still can't move and is still invisible.
I tried to the resetsim and nothing happened and it crashed, even worse now the game crashes everytime I go onto that sim for 10 seconds.

I took off all my mods and set the game to run admin but it still happens.

I quit the game once because I got tired of its random problems, I don't want to again.

Please, any suggestions?

Hello,

Do you have Master Controller? If you don't, please get this mod and use it to perform a hard reset of the entire town. That interaction is available in game from the menu on city hall.

The game is running fine but my sim still turns invisible and can't move when switching to her level 8 career wear, she is a singer.
I do the sim reset and I can see her again but she can't work now because she won't move.

should I just give her another career or is there another way to fix this?

Did you ever, by any chance, change her career outfit, by adding a custom one? This has been known to cause a lot of career related issues with Showtime.

Before this happened I never did anything to her career outfit. After it happened I tried but she was invisible even in the plan outfit and I could not add another work outfit, because she was invisible and it gave no clothing option.

She got married and has a few days off, maybe that's why?

I'm not sure, but my sister actually played with a sim in the singer career. Although the sim was visible, she couldn't move the sim while performing a gig. A lot of people have problems in that career, so it seems that EA have screwed up there No.

Then I'll just not go any further in that career then. Sad

There has been no problems with the game all day, in fact it runs smoother now!

Thanks for all the help!
