Please try to reset your sim: press Ctrl+Shift+C, then type resetSim Marc John where Marc John is the name of your sim.
Otherwise, try to make him take a bath or a bubble shower. Or to change his clothes.
Otherwise, evict him then put him back into your house.
Hope this helps...

I haven't created a sim, because I can't see Sims to create sims so I donno how I'd reset my sim if I haven't created one :/

Hello,

Try this: go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/ and rename the folder "The Sims 3", into anything you like. Just change the name of the folder. This will (temporarily) remove your savefiles, caches, and any mods/CC items.

Re-start the game, make a new save (for now) and play on for a while. See if those glitches are still there.


If the glitches are gone, let us know too; maybe we can put back in your old savefiles. Good luck for now !

In that case, there aren't many explanations left then.

You may try un-installing your Sims 3 base game (only !), via the system control panel. Re-boot your computer then.

And after that, re-install your base game.


At the end, repeat the steps from #2 to #4 here (please, follow these steps as precisely as possible): http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


And if you still get the "no text" glitch, also have a look at this topic here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t859-the-sims-3-text-balloons-not-showing-missing-fix


Good luck again - but now, I'm out of explanations.
