Sim got stuck and I can't get it to unstuck..

Post by Metjuw on Wed 20 Aug 2014, 04:17

Hello all,

I wonder if anyone can help me out without losing my sim! Sad I recently got the Sim Finder app through the Social Networking skill so I tried it out and a female sim was invited over and after putting some interactions on her, she disappeared out of nowhere and my sim was left stranded there stuck. I tried to use the cheat code "resetSim [Full Name]" but that does not work. I tried Overwatch, still same issue. I exited the game and I install the "NRaas_MasterController" package, I deleted the "CASPartCache.package, compositorCache.package,  scriptCache.package,  simCompositorCache.package". Went to the city hall, clicked on Nraas -> MasterController but my Sim is still stuck to the ground and if I try to make him do something like get him to sleep or shower, the action comes up and disappears in a split of a second. I tried using the cheat code "moveObjects on" I am able to move him to a different place but still cannot do any interactions whatsoever. I also tried to put a copy of my sim to the household, he interacted okay for a few minutes, until I managed to interact with my other stuck Sim and they got both stuck! I deleted my copied sim, not deleting the other sim 'cause I made a lof of progress through the game which I don't want to lose.. Sad


Anyone able to help me here! I can't play like this.. I mean my sim cannot interact with anything or anyone now!


Regards,


Matthew

Hi,

Do you happen to have any mods installed or custom content?

If you do have mods, I'd suggest dragging and dropping them onto your desktop, clearing those same cache files again and running the game to boot up that family once more.

Play the game like you normally would and see if there is a noticeable difference.

Hmm, that's definitely pretty weird.  So are you able to "lock up/freeze" any other sims within the same neighborhood? Or are those specific sims the only ones affected?

Sorry, what I meant by that, was are you able to basically make another sim or sims from another family in your same neighborhood freeze up as well?

Is it JUST that one Sim? 

Also, did you download your Sims 3 games from Games4theworld torrents?

I entered the Edit Town from the Options menu and I created a new copy of my existing Sim to the same household just as if I moved a new sim to a new household and it did not freeze until I made contact with the original sim, the one I've been playing with so far..

and no I did not download the Sims 3 games from Games4theworld torrents..

About the NRAAS MasterController, you weren't really precise about that, but I assume (?) you tried the "hard reset" ? With NRAAS -> Master Controller -> Town -> Reset everything ? And the sims are still stuck ?

Alternatively, try other "reset"-methods. Open the cheat console and type testingcheatsenabled true, then hit enter. Next, open the cheat console again, but this time use the "resetsim"-cheat on all your stuck sims, one-by-one. So if a sim is named "John Miller", the cheat looks like this: resetsim John Miller

Do that with every single sim that is stuck.

I found that not all of the different "reset" methods in-game yield the same results (I'm planning to write a topic on this too, in the "Tips & tricks" section), so in some situations, you need to try other methods too, to see if the glitch can be resolved.

Good luck !


P.S. otherwise, try the Porter-mod indeed.
