You may need to remove from the registry if you want to get rid of those references from these content pack. It's hard to understand what you're saying, because of the punctuation that's absent in your message. —Preceding unsigned comment added by DrakonoSkerdikas (talkcontribs) 15:37, July 21, 2019‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

New mods not workingEdit

A while ago my new mods stopped coming into my cas. All my old items are still there. Can anybody help? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A01:4C8:100C:A26F:E44B:94B7:905E:1949 (talkcontribs) 21:44, July 26, 2019‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

In order to help you, we require the following information:
  • Which game are you referring to? (e.g. The Sims 1, The Sims 2, The Sims 3, etc.) We cannot magically guess which game you need help with.
  • Which mods, if any, do you have installed?
  • What did you do (or might've done) prior to this issue occurring that might've caused the problem?
  • What are your system specs? At minimum we should know which operating system you're running.

TS1 templatesEdit

Hello, can someone advise how the sim renders are extracted from Sims 1, like the ones on the Miss Crumplebottom & Bella Goth page. I've been recreating TS1 in TS4 and noticed a few of the NPCs didnt have pictures and/or pages, was hoping to add them if its not too complicated. Thanks Prawler (talk) 15:57, July 28, 2019 (UTC)

Reusing tables?Edit

Is it ok to reuse tables from an article to another? Like moodlets for instance, which I do but change them a little bit? If not, I'll removed them. DrakonoSkerdikas (talk) 23:21, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

Bio Word Count Edit

I was wondering about the maximum word count of the Biographies for each game(1, 2, 3 and 4.). If you think it would be helpful to others, and if it's not an inconvenience, would you consider adding them soon?

Or maybe you could just answer here..

Thank you

New to The Sims 4Edit

So on the sims 2 you could see other households you created and moved into the neighborhood and interact with them. On the sims 4 that doesnt seem the case. Ive been seeing posts about how its not in "that save" but im still confused can someone break it down for me. I havent played since sims 2 in 2011 and never got sims 3 so im a little behind in lingo —Preceding unsigned comment added by Catladysimmer (talkcontribs) October 3, 2019 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

  • Every time you click "New Game" on your main menu, it's as though you're making a new Sims 2 neighborhood to play in. Sims from one neighborhood can't interact with Sims in another neighborhood in The Sims 2 (for example, Sims from Pleasantview can't interact with Sims from Veronaville, and you'll never see a Sim from Pleasantview walking around in Veronaville).
    If you click on "Load Game", you'll see all the separate "saves" you've saved. Sims from one save can't interact with Sims from another. If you want to add more Sims to the same save, add them in Manage Worlds instead of going all the way back to the main menu and starting a new game. Hope this helps! - ✨AireDaleDogz✨ (talk) 13:24, October 3, 2019 (UTC)

Problème de format Edit

J'ai télécharger le contenu personnalisé pour les Sims 2, mais quand j'ai ouvert avec WinRar il apparait comme un fichier Document Adobe Acrobat. J'ai renommé avec le .Sims2Pack mais il refuse de télécharger dans le jeu.

Sims 3: Cleaning up after bar brawl Edit

My character owns everything in town including the bars. There have been some brawls initiated by my Sim in a bar (The Grind) and there's plenty of debris. Business is down at the bar because the debris is still there and there's no way to clean it up that I can find. Any ideas? (talk) 13:08, May 13, 2020 (UTC)

Format Problem Edit

I was working on the List of ingredients from The Sims 2 Castaway (NDS), but there is a problem with the fruit table when I try to type a recipe for the watermelon. I tried deleting the row and making a new one but the problem persists.

Book of Spells Quest did not appear after Sorcerer's Supplies build Edit

Hi there! Sims Freeplay question here. After building Sorcerer's Supplies, the Book of Spells Quest has not showed up in my queue, or become automatically active as every blog/FAQ page said it would. The Magic Wand Podium has not appeared in SS store or Promotions R Us either. I have 3 other quests in queue - 1 ocean view house quest, and 2 Mysterious Island Quests. My current active quests are: "Snow Problem", "Two and a Half Sims", "Get back to the Wall", and a "Produce Live Market" event, along with Social and Weekly Quests. I heard you can't play feature and discovery quests at the same time, is that the issue here? I am level 10, just started playing a few days ago for the first time. Thanks!!

No "eco footprint" view option available Edit

Hi! I just purchased Eco Lifestyle and I am wondering how to view the "eco footprint" in my neighborhood. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dinyka (talkcontribs) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~
  • Do you have any mods installed? Sometimes mods can cause the UI to behave strangely, since there is supposed to be an eco footprint icon at the top next to the world name. - ✨AireDaleDogz✨ (talk) 08:32, July 25, 2020 (UTC)

Does anyone know where I can download a modded love bed that doesnt charge 20§ to vibrate in it for the Sims 1? Edit

you guys remember the heart shaped bed in the sims 1? It always charges 20§ whenever sims try to vibrate in it. I was wondering if there was a modded version of the bed that doesn't charge any § to vibrate in it. Does anyone know where i can find one?

This is what i'm trying to remove...

Please help!

Adding Info To Freelancer Page Edit

I'm quite new to all this. I've been reading wikis for years for information for games and have recently thought about adding my own information to the games I love to play, especially The Sims. So far, I've added two images to the Doctor Set page, as before there were no images. Now I've been looking into adding information to the Freelancer page, specifically in regards to gigs for each Freelancer trade. I've played through all five of the trades available (Digital Artist, Writer, Programmer, Fashion Photographer, and Crafter) and gathered information for all of them, but I'm not sure how to go about adding them to the page. I thought a table was the best way to lay it out, but I'm not sure what info to include. I was thinking of: gig icon, gig name, gig pay, and skill level requirement. I've also collected information for each gig's description, the bonus message you get for completing them quickly, and the list of tasks for each gig; but I thought that this additional info might be unnecessary and clutter up the page and make it look untidy.

I don't know if I'm allowed to do this, and I've been hesitant about making any drastic changes to any pages, as I'm worried about messing it up, but I would like to start contributing to The Sims wiki. 

P.S. Sorry if this was the wrong place to ask. I wasn't sure whether to post this on the Help desk or Community Discussions.

Households not opening in the Sims 4 after September 2020 update Edit

Hi everyone, 

My game has been broken every since the new September 2020 update and I don't know how to fix it. Thankfully the game works without cc and mods but not with. I have repaired, and reinstalled my game but nothing has changed. I have taken out mods that aren't updated and updated the ones that I can but it's still not working. Now it wont even work with cc (clothes, makeup hair etc).

What is happening is I can open my game and go but when I click to play a household loads for an extremely long time and doesn't open (a household with no cc) or brings me to the manage world screen with no error code or MCC exception (a household with cc) 

I don't know what to do. If anyone can help me or is having the same problem and knows what it causing it, that would be so great
