need help !! issue with the sims 3. [SOLVED]

Post by djottard on Thu 24 Nov 2011, 18:43

Hi there!

I recently noticed a problem while playing The Sims 3. Everything worked fine, but now none of my sims gets older. Neither the sims I am playing with, nor the neighbours. I checked the settings and I applied the latest version of the fix but nothing happens. At first, the "clock" stopped (i.e it was 2 p.m everytime), but I fixed that problem. Now, they are at the same age level, (i.e 23 days) day after day!

Any help? confused

Thank you in adavance Wink

Hello,

Did you check the aging settings in the "Options" menu? (In-game)

Yes I checked that. They should be able to grow up but they don't... Should I uninstall the game?

Hello,

In the worst case we could try a reinstalling, but for now, let's try some other things.
Do you have any Custom Content and/or any Mods?

sorry my native language is French and I don't have any idea what "mod" and "custom content" might be. Could you try with other terms so I can check if these are installed or not on my game? Thanks Smile

Hello,

Try this: http://translate.google.fr/

Custom Content and/or Mods means extra stuff that you added to the game. Did you downloading any extra stuff to the game? For example: extra clothes, hair styles, objects etc.

Hello,

Please try deleting everything you added to the game and then restart it. See if it makes any difference.

Hello,

Please be sure you removed EVERYTHING from your Mods/CC folder(s) and from your launcher.
Especially the (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods folder should be deleted.

Hello,

I can't find that folder so I took a picture of the The Sims 3 folder.
I hope this might help you to tell me what to do next.

Hello,

The folder you took a picture from is the folder I asked you to remove some folders from.
Besides that, please also remove the "Downloads" folder and try again.
