returning to game from edit town mode

Post by fantasticbaby on Thu 08 May 2014, 17:43

Hi,

So I was editing this house for my sims to move in and after I was done I went and tried to return to my game but it won't let me?? I'm not exactly sure where to even blame this issue because it wasn't even frozen, I even managed to save while trying to get out of edit town mode. I have also tried switching households while in that mode and unfortunately it didn't work - I even got to confirm that I wanted to switch households and all that, but nothing happened and after checking I was still using the same original household.

Then I tried to place a community lot and it loaded and all and it was placed and I finally got stuck there. The option to rotate the building was not there and I could see the small icon of the building stuck with the mouse.

Tried googling but none of them helped. Sad

Hopefully someone can help me out with this one. Thank you!! Smile

Hello,


Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves. There, look for the following folder and MOVE it to the desktop:

(Name of the savegame you want to play).sims3

Next, look if there is a folder that looks like this:

(Name of the savegame you want to play).sims3.backup


If you have such a folder, remove the .backup ending in the folder's name, so that it "looks" like the folder you just moved to the desktop. Restart the game afterwards and see if you can properly play and save in that savegame. Good luck !



P.S. you will have probably lost some in-game progress, but at least you might be able to play in that savegame again.
