Sims 3, update? And still problems

Post by GlowInDaDark13 on Sun 21 Aug 2011, 06:58

So i was downloading some store updates and it tells me theres an update, do i do it?

Also, sims are still unable to move out or be kicked out, waited another two hours and it still said processing, ended up just closing it. Will there be a patch or something that will fix this? or am i doomed? will the pets expansion (when it comes out) fix this?

Some sims on my lot become invisible, or there thought bubbles are above the floor? I reset them and there fine for a bit but then go back to it.(this happens to random family members, friends on lots, or the butler) Shocked

Some sims can see the different lots from the map view while other sims can't. For the ones who couldnt see anything, i clicked on all, friends, lots, etc etc and still nothing showed.

And no, i dont have any cc, i only have what i downloaded from pirate bay, which would be the base game and expansions, and now the store updates Very Happy

But i seriously just wanna kick out my sims! Sad I dont wanna have to kill them off Twisted Evil

Hello,
You should update your game, the latest is patch 1.24.
As for your other problems, I have heard of them before but have never experienced them. Have you tried a different neighbourhood? Its possible that your save game is corrupt.
If you're up for something different, you may want to try Nraas overwatch or the error trap.
These are unofficial game mods, but a lot of people report good things from Twallans mod. I'm not using either of these, but I am using the story progression mod from Nraas, which has never given me problems.

These 2 mods are running in the background trying to prevent errors as they occur. If you decide to download these, read the instructions that come with the files, they tell you exactly where and how to place them.

Did you replace the original files before trying to update? The files you need come with the ultimate fix.

Hello,
Every new update comes with a new fix, so if your launcher is telling you there's a new update, you have to get the new fix first. Don't worry about those original files, they're in the fix.
Get the latest fix, follow all the steps and you should be good to go. The link in my signature leads to the thread about the fix and that's updated with each new fix.

Yikes good luck with that!
I hope your game will work as it should after reinstalling it.
Please let us know the result.
