SERIOUS issues since installing dragon valley

Post by anyanca on Sat 03 May 2014, 01:44

I recently downloaded and installed the "Dragon Valley" town, which I had been wanting to get since it was announced. however, I have experienced some SERIOUS issues with my game since installing it, even though I know for a fact I did everything right and have all of the store fixes in place and everything. the first thing that happened was that all but 3 of the large cooking appliances completely disappeared from my options in the sims store. I was suddenly left with only the cauldron, the hibachi grill, and the food synthesizer. after that, upon returning from vacation, one of my sims portrait was blank, even though I saw the sim himself show up on the screen for a moment. I could not select him, and he just stood there. so, having encountered that particular glitch before in a different town/household/game, I did what fixed it before, which was to save and exit. however, when I entered back into my game, instead of seeing both of my sims portraits on the left side the way they should be, there were NO portraits there... I still had control over the one sim that had been selected when I had saved and exited, but it was as if I had NO sims in my household. I even tried enabling my testing cheats and shift/clicking on her and then "add sim to active household"...except that option didn't appear.... I really don't know what to do at this point. I'm getting very frustrated with the whole thing.

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear about your severe issues, but this game is known for these kind of things. Can you go into "edit town" mode, and try saving your sim family into the "bin" ? After that, try making a new savegame and put your sim family into that new town. Then play on for a while to see if anything improved. Good luck for now and please report back to me about your progress ! Smile
