Unable to get food at stands, lifeguard doesnt go to job

Post by Karenev56 on Sun 30 Jun 2013, 02:10

Hi all,

As the title says, not able to buy food at the stands that came with IP, and during the lifeguard's working hours it says "on the clock" but he doesn't go anywhere. I applied the Ultimate Fix but no luck. Everything else working great, any help would be greatly appreciated!Noob

Hello,

I am pretty sure that you don't know how to command your sims to work. When your sims are on the clock (as lifeguards), zoom out to the map view and you can see some sort of tags pointing to beaches. Get your sims change and travel there. Click on the chair and click on the option "survey beach" and your sims would start working and someone will be drowning and a "+" sign embedded in an orange circle will be shown. It's time for your sims to save people and gain a bit of simoleons!

Hello,

I can't get any food at the stands either, so I guess that's another bug.  Wat.

Turns out I had an old "decrapped pet register" in my packages, had read on forums that anything about a register that you have installed will mess up the food stands. So took it out and my food stands and lifeguard career are working perfectly. Also, was concerned couldn't find the new 'quick meals' that came with IP and found out they are only available if you have the mini-refrigerator.  So might help to look and see if anything to do with a register is in your mods/packages. Hope this helps some people!

Even though i have all of the mods updated, my lifeguard career didn't work. After removing the mods it works. However when i did that, all npcs at my resort disappeared and i can't place new ones, either. So i don't think nraas mods are trustworthy anymore, at least for now.

Which of his mods do you have? I have only have overwatch and the woohooer and my resorts are working fine. Just did the latest update today. Maybe if you just try those two? Also, just did the ultimate fix from here rather than KT's store fix. Took out everything from KT, if you are using his, then try deleting and just using the ultimate from here.

Hello,

I am glad to say I don't have this "unable to get food from stands" glitch. Due to the fact that I don't have any mods, I am pretty sure that this glitch is correpsonding to Nraas' mods: Overwatch, Master Controller, Errortrap, or other mods or CC. Maybe you guys should rename The Sims 3 folder in the documents and start your game without mods and CC.

I applied the store update when it came out, and I just tried again just in case.  No change.

Hello,


This simply implies that one/more of your mods/CC is/are causing the issue. Can you rename this folder: C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and try the following method to find out the source of the problem:

wow, ok i'll give it a try, will let you know how it goes.

So that took a lot of patience I didn't have, I ended up just getting rid of old CCs I don't use anymore, and some duplicates that were there.  I have no mods.  So now it works.  Thank you!
