Hi everyone, I know how weird this is going to sound. After the latest update, I went into my game to finish a house for a contest A pop up said custom content was removed because I don't own it. First of all I only download for what games I do have and mostly only basegame stuff. It even deleted ALL of TSR and Simcredibles cc. I clicked on my house and everything was gone, an empty shell. I closed my game and went to my mods folder, almost all of it was gone! Not just from my game , but from the folder also!!!!!
I removed my mods folder and my saved folder, in hopes my almost finished house is in there.
I uninstalled my game and re installed it last night, haven't put any cc back in, I'm afraid of losing it all again. This really made me angry, I didn't have a computer for almost a year, got a fantastic gaming computer for Christmas, I started building my mods folder very carefully. For a month, looking, searching for things I had before. Now it's all gone.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Hi Themama. You had bad luck. Hopefully you'll get your house back. Did you back up your cc somewhere on your harddrive?
Just an important thing.... For the next update: Before updating the game, make a back up of your "Mods" folder. I personally move "Mods", "Tray" and "Saves" to the desktop before updating.... After the update is done I launch the game once without any CC. If everything is fine, I put my cc back into the game. Even if there are some issues with broken cc (most of the time fixable with the "Batch fix" of Sims 4 Studio), I am at least sure that the cc is not removed from the game folder.
Thank you for all of the good advice. I did have a mods folder on my desktop, I had just gotten lazy and didn't re do it with a ton of new cc. So that's on me, I still don't understand why it was deleted out of my mods folder in game. But, if it's weird and unusual, it will happen to me. lol I uninstalled and re installed, added a bit at at time. Works fine. My house was still empty, so I started over, no big deal. Just glad my game is working again.
Themama, glad that everything is working for you. Like you, I don't understand why updating sometimes delete files from the "Mods", but since I know that it may happen, I am careful and remove all cc from the game before updating.
After the update it is safe to put your cc back into your "Mods"... Nothing bad will happen, nothing will be deleted....except with the next patch, but now you know what to do to prevent this issue...
