Dissappearing items.

Dissappearing items.

Postby itsjulie » August 16th, 2016, 6:13 am

This past few weeks or so, I've been having terrible trouble with my game.

Every time I play - when I go into a saved file it always start off by saying ... some items are missing and have been replaced.

The first time it happened I didn't take a lot of notice of it because I was going into one of my old legacy files that was taken off my old computer.
However, it is happening all the time with new saves that I played only the day before.

Every time now that I load up a game it is a lottery to what is missing.
I've had single expansion pack items missing - like the electric guitar quite often does a disappearing act - but the rest of that expansion items are there.
I have items disappearing then the next time I go into the game, it is back again. Even worlds have temporarily disappeared.

I could live with it - but now I am getting very annoyed by it because one of my FAVOURITE items in the game seems to have vanished for good.
The wishing well that came with Lucky Palms - has now completely vanished.
I have tried ... uninstalling lucky palms then reinstalling - but that particular item is not coming back.

Does anyone have any idea what this might be or what could be causing it.

Well only because the ones who usually are here to help aren't online all the time to check so you don't have to feel invisible here as for the items, did you check MTS2 or the NRAAS site? They usually have replies and solutions to problems like that, I may go there to try to find out what's with my Sims dropping into the red.

I used to have this issue when I installed store items through the launcher; not sure why it occurs, maybe too many files to load? I 'fixed' it by converting all my store stuff to packages and bypassing the launcher...though it takes a while to do that, and you have to have a decent knowledge of packages and such to try it.

This bug has really stumped me. I had to do some googling around to see if I could find anything on it.
I ended up coming mostly dry.

Do you play with mods in? Have you been taking them out?
Sometimes I've noticed the folders with mods can get kind of buggy.

Also ever since we got a new launcher sometimes the EPs or SP might get unchecked before you launch... maybe that's the cause?
