Red, white and question mark skin/hair and llama's everywhere [SOLVED]

Post by karinadolores on Sat 17 Jun 2017, 19:14

I decided that I wanted to play today and went through everything to install the latest updates and all that (I had everything up to the vampire and toddlers update. So I needed that, parenthood and the new patch). I did everything exactly how the instructions said and I entered the game perfectly. 

But when I went to make a new sim their skin is all red and white and they have question marks all over. I've been trying to fix it for hours now, even uninstalled the whole game and followed every instruction, but it still looks like that. I also noticed that some of the icons in CAS is now a llama instead of the regular icon. 

I decided to try and hope that it was just a CAS thing and saved a sim to move her in, but she's still the same and I noticed that San Myshuno and Forgotten Hollow has just a llama as their picture instead of a regular neighbourhood picture. 

This is seriously bugging me and I don't know how to fix it. I've tried to search for the problem, but I haven't found anyone else who has the same problem. 

Is there any way to fix this?  

This is how it looks like by the way: 


Edit: I tried playing without the latest update and it was fine in CAS, but when I tried to move my sims in and play them it would just pop me back to the menu where we pick neighbourhoods.

Hey, did you check if one of the mods is making your game like this? I had a similar problem and it was because of outdated mods. So i personally took out of the mod folder everything and run the game to see if it still works. After i found the problematic ones i replaced them with the new mod versions. Did that help?

I don't have any mods, so that can't be the problem.

I reinstalled it and I don't have any save files. And this happened when I made a new save file.

And you didn't have this problem up until now?  I is confused
Are you sure you are using the right .exe? or the path needs to be changed? I is confused

Not until I installed the new packs and updates. 

I've done everything that's in the instructions and I've read them multiple times to be sure.

It's not that either, since I put everything I needed into the exception list and it's not blocking my game from starting. 

Thanks, hopefully it'll be fixed soon somehow.

Those strange happenings normally appear if meshes are missing. Have you tried redownloading those packs and than installing them again? Could be some corruption in the torrent download. I had it as well, but after installing the missing mesh ( hair and skin ) it was fixed. I still have a nail polish causing that, so I do not use it at all. It's from Jom sims. I do know you dont have mods, but it could be a faulty mesh that comes with the pack.

That's what I did and it worked!! I had already done it yesterday and it didn't work, but in lack of anything else to try I tried it again earlier today and it finally worked! I have no idea what happened the two times I had already done it, but I'm happy that it worked the last time. 

Thanks for the help anyway!
