Hello,

First of all, I'm sorry for the late delay, but we have a serious shortage of Helpers/Moderators for quite a while now - and we can't answer all questions as quick as we used to. Unfortunately, this also means that we are more 'apt' to overlook posts. Anyhow, do you still have this problem ?

You can always try to remove all your mods - and see if the problem persists. ANd it is always a good idea to clear the cache - especially after installing new patches, expansions, mods and other CC. You'll find these items in My documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3; they can be safely deleted. Re-start the game afterwards.



-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"

Hi, thanks for the reply and sorry for my delay, been ill and couldnt play,  i deleted the files you listed and removed all my nraas mods but it is still the same, i can click on the ready made sims in cas but they dont load, they used to work before the latest update so was wondering if it was anything to do with that, still looking for ideas if anyone can suggest anything, willing to try just about anything apart from uninstalling them all again as i hive all pack and it takes forever to re install

thanks fi

Sorry for the delay.

But as a "last resort" you can try renaming the folder "The Sims 3" (my Documents/Electronic Arts) into anything you want. Then re-start the game, make a new savegame (for now) and test again.
