into the future glitch 2 Edit

two of my Sims travelled to the future but I hadn't waited for them to step through the portal and I went into edit town so now it wont let me play as them or change households because I time travelled is there any way to fix this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by K.gaming (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

It's strange, because normally the game would restrict you from changing your game or family's state while you're undergoing a travel, such as going to Edit Town or even saving. I don't have any suggestion for you other than quitting without saving. Nikel Talk Vote! 15:03, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

that wont work cause when I went into edit town I saved plus I made it a while ago and I've been trying different things like playing as a future family and travelling back or killing them off to change households.—Preceding unsigned comment added by K.gaming (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~


I had this exact same issue, with slight differences. I travelled to the future with my bot-builder and my family plumbot (2 total sims) to gather some necessities from the Bot Emporium. However, I scrolled out into town view to click the action to go to Emporium before my sims stepped through the portal. I noticed that there was no option when I clicked it. I returned to look at the portal, and though it continues making the sound as though someone is going to come through, no one does. I have no sims in my panel, no wish/aspirations, and I have absolutely no options no matter what I click, even with testingcheatsenabled true activated. I am going to return to my last save, which I wish was more recent, but I would appreciate an unofficial patch to solve this, if possible.  23:35, July 3, 2014 (UTC) Pandora


EDIT: I loaded my last save and attempted this again, without scrolling out. The house takes several minutes to load and my two sims are still not showing up at all, much less any option to do anything. I have all expansion and stuff packs and no mods. I have travelled back and forth with two to five family members no problem before, they have just never been in this combination. The only real differencei s that I have moved to a new house and placed a new portal... it never showed in the game with the time traveller, so I had previously set it from buy mode and summonded the time traveller. When I moved I deleted the old one from that property and activated the new one that I had placed. I am going to try and go back and summon the traveller rather than activating it. I will update. 76.185.237.92 (talk) 00:17, July 4, 2014 (UTC) Pandora


EDIT : Thought that I would do one last edit. I completely exited and re-launched my game, returned to an older save, tried going to the portal on my old lot, tried changing the sims that I was bringing, and brought my sims down to one... I also called forth Emit and went through the questline to change the future from normal to utopian and tried again with just one sim... to no avail. Even when loading my only previous two saves, the game looks different and will sometimes cast a random red light on shadowing, on and around my lot exterior. All of this time-travelling trouble only happened when I changed to my new home/lot, but I when clicking the portal on my previous lot the command will cancel almost immediately, before the sim even takes a step. I no longer have a save of my family living in their old lot. Unlike before, the portal is not glowing nor making a single sound. Im not sure how to proceed, now. I transferred my last plumbot to the previous family that I had split into another household, and the newer, better, plumbot has no trait chips, and I am out of nanites and supplies. I attempted to merge my old plumbot back, but his previous trait chips are non-existant, something I have noticed with previous plumbots that I have sold/gave. At this point having a plumbot, and really 'Into the Future' is completely pointless, as I cannot utilize any of it randomly, without any game update or computer changes or anything happening. I also tried deleting all caches and reloading, to no change whatsoever. This is frustrating, and I may just have to scrap my bot-building dad and his davinci-aspiring wife and their kids for a new family. I am reluctant to do so after all of the visa points I have accumulated from travelling. This has never been an issue until I moved them, but I do not have the last save. Word to the wise: If you are having this issue, DO NOT delete or overwrite any of your old saves. 76.185.237.92 (talk) 03:16, July 4, 2014 (UTC) Pandora

Sims vampire glitch! How can I fix it! Edit

I've been having this crazy glitch latley on my game, and its very very very irratiting. So I have the University,Supernatural,Ambitions, and Island Paradise expansion packs, and whenever I play any game and create sims, they all turn into vampires. I did the 'testingcheatsenabled true' cheat and edited my sim to a human and they still turned into a vampire, and I never got the option at the science facility for a cure, and the only way I found to get rid of it is if their "lover" asks them to forsake it, BUT it only works when my sim is in moonlight falls (The place that came with supernatural.) I even uninstalled my supernatural expansion pack to see if it had anything to do with it and it STILL turns my sim into a vampire! I honestly don't know why and I would REALLY APPRECIATE if someone has an answer! HOW CAN I MAKE MY SIMS STO TURNING INTO VAMPIRES?! Jennie17 (talk) 06:27, January 4, 2014 (UTC)Jennie17

2 Glitches All Sims Games Are super glitchyfor me Edit

I have a Pregnancy glitch my sim never changed to pregnancy clothes or stomach growth and every 10 seconds the game will show her completely still and arm out stretched like she is holding and infant. I gave up and stopped playing that family and played a new family I had copied the family because if a experiment with my scientist changed my sims to plant sims there would be to families plant Sims and normal sims after I played the plant sims copy it kept crashing over and over again every half hour so finally after saving every time my sims went to bed I'd save but it kept my progress but the glitch is super annoying please help also my expansions seasons pets and university life for sims 3

I had a similar issue to the first one, but it didn't happen until after her son became a toddler. This particular bug is a green scarab because the animation anomaly causes the sim to stop walking all the time. There is a simple fix though, going into the console and using the command resetsim Firstname Lastname. I don't know if forum posts can be used as references but here [1] that link describes using the resetsim command in more detail.--Matrilwood (talk) 02:10, January 16, 2014 (UTC)

Started new section Edit

I use testingcheatsenabled true for the maxmotive affect you can get by clicking "make needs static".  I don't even really enjoy the game without it, but almost immediatly after I enable it and try making a different sim active it won't let me change it.  Like, say I have two sims in a household, Billy and Bob.  Billy is active, I type in testingcheatsenabled and switch to Bob, but Billy's face and info is still at the bottom instead of Bob's and his actions are still shown.  When I click for him to do something, however, Bob's face shows up in the little float thingy and he'll do an action that I want him to, but he doesn't have a queue or any other info. 

It's so frustrating.  Not even two minutes into the game and I have to save and quit, reopen, save and quit.  Please help. -- —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.62.124.99 (talkcontribs) 06:39, January 19, 2014 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

That sounds annoying. Try putting the cheat on and switch to a new household. If Bob walks past as a neighbor, shift-click on him and choose 'Make Selectable'. It should show Bob's information, then shift-click agin and choose 'Make Unselectable'. Go back to Bob and Billy's house and see if it worked. Joey.eyeball (talk) 06:39, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Commitment GlitchEdit

Sometimes there is the occasional glitch where a Sim will reject another Sim for engagement or going steady in the Sims 2 outright, even if both their daily and lifetime relationships are at +100 and they are best friends and in love with each other. This happened to me with Romeo and Juliette. In the end I had to add Juliette to the Monty household (which for some reason stopped the glitch) so that one could successfully propose to the other. Then I moved Juliette back into the Capp household. C.Syde65 (talk) 05:59, January 21, 2014 (UTC)

Sims 3 Glitching Edit

 I can honestly say I have found a LOT of glitches with this. Most of the time they were really small. I have Sims 3, Sims 3 Ambitions. Supernatural, Generations, World Adventures, Island Paradise, Pets, and Seasons.

1. Stretching baby! : One of my Sims put the baby in the crib and it stretched to his size. It was really creepy.

2. I was putting my Sims back into Create a Household mode and resetting their age. One of my Sims age bar had frozen on adult when it was supposed to be young adult. It had been this way for about two days. I then was using the birthday cake to age up my kids when she suddenly turned into an elder.D:

3. Never Ending Fire: This was incredably annoying. One of my Sims caught a cheap bbq pit on fire. As I extinguished it. IT came back. And mulitplied into four. This fire came back so many times I cannot count. I even built a pond over it. No luck. I had to reset the game.

4. My game crashes everytime I look at this guys house. Its my Sim's boyfriends house and everytime the house fills up my screen it crashes. DD:

Stretched Cat head (Sims 3) Edit

Ok, so I have Pets, Generations, World Adventures, Late Night, Supernatural, and literally yesteryday Island Paradise.

So I have my nice resort, and such. I decided to adopt a cat for my sims, let call the kitty Dink and my sims Adam. Adam kept feeding him treats, it kept popping up "Dink doesn't seem hungry,"

I decided it was getting annoying, so I go to cancel the actions. When I go to cancel I get a cat head going through the wall. No, I don;t get some freakin' cat who stands up all stretchy, I get a freicken' wall cat head.

Dink's icon was just fine, and when I angled the camera differently, he was just fine.

Is this going to affect my babies? I havn't had trouble with babies before. Is this something to do with Island Paradise. HOW DO I FIX THIS?

The Sims 2 Blue Lot Edit

Hi, I am playing the Sims 2 Double Deluxe (with the Nightlife expansion pack and the Celebration! Stuff pack). The other day I was in a neighborhood which I had created myself, then I added a new empty lot (a 3x2). I created a house there and everything was fine. I did use a couple of floors and wallpaper that I had created using Homecrafter. Anyway, I exited to the neighborhood, and the loading screen came up as usual. But when the neighborhood loaded, the lot I had made was there, but it was a light blue colour. I thought that this was strange, so I clicked on it, but nothing happened. It was as if the lot was unresponsive. Has anyone else been having this problem? Thanks, XxRIPMCRxX XxRIPMCRxX (talk) 20:33, February 12, 2014 (UTC)

I have started to loose count of the number of times I've had to un-install and then re install my Sims 3 expansion packs in the past. I use to have Late night installed but ended up loosing interest in the game due to the bugs. Such a shame as Bridgeport was a pretty cool town from first looks and the features were awesome. Bridgeport was plagued with big glitches so I ended up un installing all the games to start again, without Late night. Games seamed to run ok with little glitches that didn't stop me playing. When I got Island Paradise expansion pack, I found the computer lagged and froze sometimes with gameplay and so I chose to stop playing that town. I don't have any of the downloaded towns or any custom content. The least glitch towns I found were, Sunset Valley, Twinbrook and Appolosa Plains. I would still get little glitches and a funny glitch which made me laugh, my sims would sometimes come out of the shower and not put any clothes on. One sim even went to work like that! A glitch that didn't affect my gameplay, just funny. Also, that Error save message that comes up after installing World Adventures, I have never even had World Adventures installed and still I have this glitch come up everynow and then. Doesn't make sense. About a month ago I got Sims3 Into the Future expansion pack and installed that onto my computer. Game seamed ok at first, but started noticing new gltiches. Sims disappearing from portrait and gameplay glitches where I couldn't click on another sim. Sims getting stuck. Very unusual glitch where a female sim became friends with a male sim and they became bestfriends with no interaction. Then I would go over to the male sims house and the girl cannot be found in his friends panel, yet when he found her at a community lot, it came up they were bestfriends. Game sometimes freeze briefly when its snowing, I turned off the snow in the options. Expansion Packs I have are: Ambitions, Pets, Showtime, Generations, Seasons, Univercity, Island Paradise, Supernatural, Into the Future and I have Mastersuite, Movies Stuff and 70s, 80s, 90s, stuff packs. I don't think its my video card, as I had a new one put in over 2 years ago that was meant to be good for running the Sims3 games. I honestly think that installing Into the future expansion pack is the culprit for why my game is playing up BIG time. Since Ive installed Into the Future I have found that my game freezes, lags and crashes ALOT now. Bugs in the game, I never observed before are now occurring and its currently rendered my save game almost unplayable. Its ridiculous that I need to save my game every five mins incase it crashes. I know that Sims has always had many glitches etc, and I have tolerated this. It is very frustrating that I am about to un install all my Sims3 games and gonna have to decide which ones are worth re installing and hope that Im not re installing expansion packs that come with unwelcome gameplay issues that cause more freezing and crashing!! I am saving up for a new PC to start playing Sims4 when it comes out, but all these glitches etc have me most concerned right now.... :(

TS3: University GlitchEdit

So, my Sim went to university and she got a boyfriend there. Now that the University term is over, she was returned to her town. I then wanted to move her to Bridgeport, so I did. Now that I've settled in a home, I wanted her boyfriend to come visit, but now I can't find him in her friends list? 

All her previous friends were gone, and her boyfriend too, they didn't even break up, so I wonder if they're still together? 

Does anyone know how I can get him back?  --Vivian —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.90.88.170 (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

It might be because when you move into a new town, all of your sim's relationships disappear so that you start with a 'clean slate' . Apparently it also includes when you travel or go to university. He should be there if you go back. 69.165.35.70 (talk) 17:57, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

What. Just. Happened?!?!?!?!!! Edit

In The Sims 3 for ps3 I had mommy and baby go to a museum. Long story short I had daddy call everyone home but the mother put the baby down and went home. So the baby had to crawl home. When I switched to the baby's character it showed that he was on the front lawn but he is not visible. They can interact with him but I can't see him. Any suggestions..?—Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.69.53.115 (talkcontribs) 04:12 17 March 2014 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

CAP Glitch Edit

My Sims 3 CAP cursor was stuck on the color wheel! I made my sims adopt a new puppy, and since I didn't know how to change his coat, I edited him in CAP. I was changing his eye color with the color wheel when suddenly I couldn't drag the circle thing. Wherever I clicked, even outside the wheel, the circle followed. I wasn't able to click on anything, but when I hovered over a button the name popped up or whatever. I was forced to quit without saving my game. The only way I could close it was to go to task manager. This happened twice now! I have pets, late night, island paradise, university life, and 2 more stuff packs. Anyone have a solution?69.165.35.70 (talk) 17:50, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

i have a problem on Sims Freeplay. i sent one of my sims to Another Sims Town to complete a task but she's been down with that task for about a week now. Everytime i go to get her i am being kicked out of the game completely! Everything else is working just fine thought.      168.18.96.62 (talk) 22:43, March 27, 2014 (UTC)Adrial Howard168.18.96.62 (talk) 22:43, March 27, 2014 (UTC)

Fixed facial expressionEdit

Sometimes in The Sims 2, there is the occasional Glitch where a Sim does not change facial expressions. Instead they will have a fixed grin even if they are in a bad mood. Has this happened to anyone else? C.Syde65 (talk) 11:32, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, yes. This happened all the time. If you have Pescado's batbox, you can fix Sim's stuck facial expression. But you can only do that manually, as that mod is not a prevention. Nikel Talk Vote! 12:14, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Something Edit

Disappeared Pizza Glitch!

Ok, when i was playing Sims 3 and was using cheats (Testingcheatsenabled true) and i click the mailbox, put pizza deliver in my home, get the pizza and getting it... I saved the game and something happened. I did go to the starting menu where you can see the familys what you have done, the reason was that i try to get Lifetime Points easily. When i came back, my werewolf sim was holding something, BUT IT WAS INVISIBLE! I try to figure out how to fix it. Going back to menu didnt work... But i found the fix out. Go get the bills and then lose ur money. This isnt a game breaking or file breaking glitch, its just a mini glitch what i found, so dont be scared.Pikachuren123 (talk) 16:16, June 2, 2014 (UTC) Pikachuren123

Seasons was released after Pets, so it will show "The Sims 3 Seasons" in the loading screen. Load your game and check if any of the Pets objects are there. If they are, then Pets is installed. FYI this applies for all the older games as well. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 11:24, June 15, 2014 (UTC)

Ostracized Sims family Edit

I have the Deluxe Edition of the original SIMS game; no CHEAT stuff. Here's the problem:  there is one particular lot in one neighborhood in which there is no interaction with the outside world.  No newspapers are delivered, no mail comes, no neighbors drop by, no service personnel respond... You can order pizza, the order is confirmed, but the delivery guy never shows up; ditto for maid service, etc.  The problem started after I evicted one family and then moved them back in later.  When they invited their friends over, the friends would accept the invitation, but not show up.  Thinking the glitch was attached to that family, I subsequently created several new families and moved them in to the lot (after buldozing the house, making a new start).  I have quit without saving... What can I do?  The family currently occupying the lot are unemployed, (no newspapers for job search), and spend their days building their job qualifications and interacting with each other, until the food money runs out, I suppose.  What can I do about this HEXED LOT?108.224.20.178 (talk) 14:08, July 1, 2014 (UTC)

Factual correction Edit
