Changing the options doesn’t stick

Problem

I changed something in my options (graphics, turned on mods, ..) but when I restart the game, all changes are gone.

Cause

This issue is caused by a corruption of the options.ini file which leads to the game not being able to save your changes. Because of this, all the game reverts the options to the last saved state.

Solution

  • Close the game
  • Delete the file Dokuments\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Options(.ini)
  • Open the game. All options will be reset as if you never changed them.
  • Re-set all options to what you want them to be.
  • Apply all changes
  • Next time you start the game, the changes should stick.
