Bad butlers

Post by Mentality on Tue 21 Mar 2017, 00:38

I got my sim really rich and rented him the best penthouse in City Living. Got him a butler too. The thing is, the butler doesn't do much besides look after his own needs and stand around. I kept asking him to cook my sim a meal and he wouldn't. Is this supposed to happen? As in, are some butlers good at their jobs and some aren't? Or is this a bug?

//EDIT

Does anyone know of a alternate no mosaic mod? I tried applying moxiemason's no mosaic mod and it doesn't work. He said it wouldn't ever have to be updated, but now it doesn't work. WhatDidUJustCallMe?



//EDIT

Looks like the problem is they do not prioritize. The tasks do not stack in in their que, even despite adjusting their traits. I hope someone comes up with a fix for this.

Hi,

I've read the comments for the mod and it seems that the mod did not in fact need updating until Toddlers (there is an update). There were others who had problems with the mod and upon checking, the problem lay with other mods. Even if you do download the new update it won't work because of the game version.

My advice is to remove all mods and cc and re-add them one by one until you find the problem. It's a tedious task but it helps.

I personally have a 'Test' folder within my Mods folder. Any new mods and/or cc goes into that folder and if there is a problem I know which one to remove. If the mod/cc works fine I put it in with the others.

Hope this helps.

Well I haven't updated my game to the newest version yet. I have the previous update still installed. And none of the mods that I have should conflict with it. Moxie's no mosaic mod is pretty outdated though. I hope someone will take the time to update it and re-release it.

Baby making busted

Post by Mentality on Wed 22 Mar 2017, 14:34

So I installed The Sims 4, applied all the expansions, and the ultimate fix. I set him up with the penthouse in City Living, bought him a restaurant, and got him married. He's living a pretty cushy life. So then I move on and tried to get him to impregnate his wife. Problem is, when I do that they seem to reset before climbing into bed. They don't do the deed. I want them to have a couple of kids. Is there a fix for this?


Also, they tend to not grab a quick meal for some reason when I instruct them to. The action tends to disappear from their que.

I even tried resetting the bed and tried a different one. It didn't help. Both sims still reset. I was pretty disappointed.  WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Well, what should I do? Re-apply the ultimate fix? Uninstall and reinstall the game?

do you have any mods? or any kid in that household? You wrote you want some but if you have already any other baby or child in that household and they or their bed/bassinet are too close to the parents bed than that's the problem. If not maybe reinstalling would help or your save file is corrupt WhatDidUJustCallMe?

or maybe you can try if they can try for baby in bushes or the observatory or in a closet. I'm still looking for other answers too



/EDIT

Maybe try reset your folders. You can change the name of your Sims4 (Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4) folder to for example "Sims 4 backup"
Then you start your game without moving back any of your previous files. This will create a new Sims 4 folder in your Documents. Start a new game with a random couple, try for baby.
If it works, hurray and you can try to copy your tray files, saves and mods (if you have any).
If not-try reinstall the game.

I'm re-installing the base game. I do not have any other kids in the household. I do have mods but nothing that should be interfering with the process. Hopefully re-installing will fix the issue.

Aaaagh! I uninstalled and reinstalled, and put in the ultimate fix. But when I tried to start the game back up I got this error message:





Now what do I do?

The fix doesn't work properly and maybe your antivirus/windows firewall detected as a virus and blocked it.
There are some previous topics about this scenerio:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t23167-origin-not-running-bin-folder-issues?highlight=origin#

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21001-unable-to-start-origin-is-currently-not-running-solved#

I know this is frustrating but if the antivirus thing doesn't work, I'd reinstall again and make sure the antivirus don't run at the time and add the installation folder as an exception before turning back the program and run the game.

Later I find some post about some cc (which shouldn't do anything with woohoo) are actually causing some of these issue. If you can install the game again and try again playing the game and still have the issue, I suggest the half-half method where you move out half of your cc and try out if it works that way (and you continue to half again and again until you found the culprit).

I fixed the directory and was able to start up the game again. I tried having them make a baby without mods installed and they were able to woohoo (she isn't pregnant yet though). So it looks like one of the mods is the problem. Wish I could figure out which one it is easier though. Ty liriana.  Smile

You're welcome Very Happy Sometimes the Sims 4 Mod Conflict detector helps but the only certain way to find which one is the problem is the half-half method. I have 3300 mod/cc files in my Mods folder so I know how painful it could be XD
