Cannot interact with sims or get sims to interact with other sims

Post by skyesmylimit on Sat 29 Jun 2013, 12:31

Hi!
Recently I downloaded and installed several EPs and SPs from here into my laptop. The game loads and works fine and I can use pretty much everything in the game. However, whenever I click on my sim or any other sim, nothing happens; there is no pop-up list of interactions whenever I click on my sim or any other sim. Can anybody tell me what can be done?
Thanks so much for any help!

Hello! Thanks for the reply. I followed the instructions and loaded my game but nothing happened; I clicked my sim and another sim but no interaction list came up. Is there anything else that can be done?

Is this your first installation of "The Sims 3" ? If not, have you seen that problem sometime in the past already ?


And do you have any mods or custom content installed (= did you install files which are either in the ".sims3pack" or ".package" file formats) ? If yes, what exactly do these mods do; what does your custom content contain ? And where did youn download that stuff from ?

Hi!
No, this isn't my first installation of the game and I've had it for awhile now but I've never encountered this problem. I use a few mods, like the writing mod and book of talents, which I got off of modthesims3. I also have a ton of cc which I got from all over, like sunsetsims, tsr, aroundthesims3, modthesims3 as well as a few other places. They were installed in both formats.
I've never had this problem before but it came up after I downloaded some new EPs and SPs. But the game and objects all work fine, though; I can use all the objects and visit lots and all but cannot interact with my sim or get my sim to interact with others.

If in your case the problem is really a mod/CC it will be a bit tricky to find out what exactly causes this.

But for now, let's do what I suggest most often here: go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/ and rename the folder "The Sims 3" in any way (example: "The Sims 3_backup").

When you start the game, start (for now) a completely new savegame, and see if it changed anything.

If it does change something, then we can continue with putting in your old savefiles; and then come the mods.

But good luck for now !

OK, I did what you said and it worked Very Happy
 so, what exactly does that mean? is it the cc that's causing the problem? and what do I do now to fix the problem (but still be able to use cc)?
