Is anyone else having problems with the 1.63 patch? [SOLVED]

Post by auntjemima on Mon 21 Oct 2013, 17:58

I downloaded the manual patch and applied that, but I can't get my Sims to do anything.  I'll click for them to walk somewhere or go to work or school and their queue thing just empties.  They all just stand still and don't do anything.  I even installed the ultimate fix again and it didn't help.  The game worked fine before updating the patch.
I haven't downloaded any custom content since updating the patch thing.  
I did try to install the nraas master controller, but when I had that in the mods folder, the game never loaded.  It just sat on the family loading screen for 1 hour +.  And it wasn't frozen--the little phrase things kept changing, but it just never loaded.  

Does anybody know what could be wrong?

Hello,

I had similar things happen in the past, in my game. Do you have any mods ? Even if they are "compatible" with the base game patch version, there might be trouble, so you might want to try taking them all out.

I tried removing all the downloads and it still didn't work right.  I don't know what's wrong with it.  I guess I'm going to have to wait until the next patch comes out and see if that works.

I wanted to avoid it, but you may have to try renaming the folder "The Sims 3" (in My Documents/Electronic Arts) into anything you like. Then re-start the game, make a new savegame for now and play for a while.

If it works, then the problem was maybe a corrupt(ed) savegame, corrupte(ed) cache, or mods/CC. So let us know the result, so that we can go farther then. Good luck ! Smile

Ok, so now it's back to normal for the most part, except I still can't control one of my Sims.  I moved out the rest of the family and then tried to move him in with them and then I couldn't control any of them again.  Hopefully you followed that.  Can just one Sim be corrupt?  And if so, how do I fix him?  Normally, I'd just delete him or kill him off, but I spent so much time building up his skills, I'd hate to see him go.

Yes, it is possible that "just one" sim can get corrupted, and as far as I know, there is nothing you can do about it in that case.

You can, however, try saving all your sims (even the "corrupt" one) into the "bin", in edit town-mode, then make a new savegame, put your family in there, and play on. See if the same happens there.

If it does, then the sim might be indeed corrupt.
