I can't do anything! :(

Post by Purpletiny on Sun 10 Apr 2016, 18:12

Hey, 
 I have just uninstalled everything and re-installed The Sims 4, Get to Work and Get Together and the Get Together Hotfix and I am still having so many issues.
I can't interact with nearly all the items eg: cooker, fridge, bed, sofa etc 
When I cancel an action my sim just stands there
On the odd occasion I can interact with something she just stands there, it comes up in action bar but nothing happens
I have tried all the possible solutions I could find, i'm now ready to pull my hair out.
Any help you guys can give me would be greatly appreciated, I really just don't know what else to do  Why God.
Thanks in advance
Purpletiny

P.S I don't run any mods or have any custom content, its literally the base game and exps

Hello,







Navigate to the location shown in the screenshot. Click on "set a custom scaling level" and then change the default value to 125%. Click on "OK", and close the small window. Then on "apply" in the other window. Then try the game again. Good luck for now !

A small part of this post here deals with restoring an older version of your savefiles, feel free to try it.
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t20396-unable-to-start-the-contents-of-your-user-data-directory-were-created-by-a-newer-version-of-the-sims-4-updated-on-29-12-2015

I myself never had this issue, so I'm unsure what else to suggest. You could navigate to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 and delete the file localthumbcache.package. Maybe it can help, but I'm not sure.

It seems to be a common glitch though, and maybe it was fixed in a later game patch version. We may need to wait until a new pirated update comes out for these bugs to be fixed, I'm sorry I can't give better news here.

Thank you for trying, it's still not fixed Sad I've had this issue since Get to Work, was hoping the Get Together would fix it somehow but no. Both my daughter's have the base game and Get to Work and they don't have these issues, a few small glitches but nothing major that's why I thought maybe if I uninstall and reinstall it may work.
I will wait and see if there's any updates that might help.
Thanks again

I was wondering if the (very common) issue of messed-up file and folder-permissions can also muck up things. Windows has become...really strange in many aspects in recent years. But that is another issue.

What I wanted to suggest is this: if you have any desktop shortcuts for the game, delete them all. Now...you navigate to the install directory of the game. When you see the folder The Sims 4, click on the tab "Home" in the top left of the screen - there should be an option named "move to". 

Move the install folder "The Sims 4" directly under the desktop, and then try the game again.

I have tried everything, every suggestion you have kindly offered and its still the same, the game is unplayable as I can't do anything Why God. , guess I will have to just give up on The Sims  Crying or Very sad . I don't use any mods or cc so I really am at a loss 
Thank you for your time and help
