Sims moving out...

Post by Schnizol on Sun 02 Feb 2014, 02:55

Hm... I noticed that the town progression in sims 3 makes quite random actions, like certain sims suddenly "disappearing".

e.g. one sim had a sister and 4 kids in one house. suddenly, one of them moved to another lot with 3 kids, and her sister and one kid "disappeared. They are visible in the genealogy tree, but you can't call them.
Is there any way to "get them back"?

Hello,

Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves. Look for a folder with the name (Name of your savegame).sims3. Please delete the folder, or move it out somewhere.

Then, look for a folder called (Name of your savegame).sims3.backup. Remove the .backup ending in the folder's name so that it looks like the one you just moved out.

Now re-start the game. You might have lost some in-game progress, but see if the missing sims are back.

Good luck !
