    Foundation Sliders have gone missing

    Issue The sliders for the foundations are gone since Patch 1.47.46. Cause The patch made it possible to individually set the foundation height for each unconnected building. You can now have buildings with different foundations. Because of this, the slider was removed from the GUI and it’s working differently now. Solution Choose a room to which you want to add a foundation. You should then see an up/down arrow with which you can change the foundation for each building.

    Update The standard has been set back to newest. Problem Since the gallery update from July 31st, 2018, I’m missing a lot of items in my gallery when I’m filtering by a certain EA Account ID or a hashtag. I know there should be more results but I’m not getting many results. Cause The problem is, that the default sort by was changed from newest to popular now.

    Problem I would like to adjust my relationships with the cheat modifyrelationship <FirstNameSim1> <LastNameSim1> <FirstNameSim2> <LastNameSim2> x Friendship_Main nut nothing happens.

    Moving objects up and down with MoveObjects doesn’t work

    Problem I would like to move objects up and down with the cheat bb.moveobjects. When I press 0 and 9 all it does is take me to a corner of my lot.

Solution Press ALT + 9 to delete save camera states (Details: Patch 1.49.65) Delete the file VideoCameraStates.ini (or move to the desktop). You can find the file in the following folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\the sims4\VideoCameraStates. The file is recreated when you need…

    Disappearing Sims

    Update The bug part of this was fixed. Culling isn’t a bug but a performance mechanism. Problem After switching to another family, most of my Sims of the other family have disappeared. They are not dead but simply not there anymore. My Sim has made quite a few friends around town but the next day they have all disappeared. Cause The game purges Sims that are distantly related to your Sim every Wednesday to Thursday Night. There is a bug in the game that needs fixing, since played Sims are also being purged. At this point it’s unclear what the…
