Limited Social Interactions (Using NO CC/Downloads)

Post by Cortana on Wed 18 Sep 2013, 09:36

Hello,

It appears that my game is absolutely refusing to allow any of my sims to interact with one another. The only things they can do are:

Friendly...
>Give Gift
>Pillow Fight

Or

Mean...
>Scare

Incidentally, even if I choose to select those interactions, the little square that pops up in the upper left corner to execute the command, disappears after less than a second of being up there awaiting the sim to take that action. This effectively prevents my sims from interacting with one another entirely.

I have searched through this forum and other places on the internet to fix my problem. I have found no solutions yet.

The things I have tried to fix this issue are:

-Resetting my sims
-Completely uninstalling and re-installing my base game and ALL of my expansions
-Deleting all Cache files and starting a different game with a pre-made sim family (prior to and after my re-installation)
-Deleting all Cache files and starting a different game with sims created from scratch (prior to and after my re-installation)
-Using the Ultimate Fix, deleting any cache files, starting a new game

***I do not have any CC or Downloads installed into my game.***

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks!

EDIT:

Additional Information:

I read and followed proper steps to install ALL games/expansions.

What I was doing prior to the problem was "nothing". I was merely playing the game and eventually found there were limited interactions.

My operating system is Windows 7.

Hello,
THis usually means you have conflicting Mods.
Are you sure you don't have a Mods folder in Documents\Electronic Arts?

Hello.

Indeed I do know this *usually* means there is a conflict with CC. I read up on this thoroughly.


If you need further proof of my problem, I will post images to show.

Sorry, it seems I wasn't clear enough.
I didn't mean Custom Content but Mods, which are modifications of the game. From your snapshot though, it appears you don't have any.

Is your game up to date?
Otherwise, I found out somewhere that ErrorTrap might solve your problem. Are you familiar with installing mods?

Hmn, this is perhaps my language error. I refer to Mods and CC as the same at times~  In either case I have none.

Indeed I downloaded Patch 1.57, and installed it according to the instructions listed for it to work properly (meaning, removing mods/CC/disabling downloads from the launcher).

Note, I do HAVE Mods and CC, but I removed all of them prior to my re-install of all the games/expansions and subsequent patch update. As you noted they are no longer located in the folder per the screenshot.

Yes I am familiar with installing mods~  I have not used ErrorTrap (are you referring to the NRAAS mod?) before.

Yes I am.
Please see this page. In the "Mods that help with the issue" section.
Try those Mods and see if any of them help with your problem...
