Other Gallery Issue (Screen Grayed Out)

Post by Jessica_Revolver on Tue 07 Aug 2018, 18:59



Hello Friends, I saw an earlier post which was closed today about an issue with gallery being greyed out. I thought that perhaps I was having a compatibility issue with the UI Cheats as well (mine is up to date tho) so i removed it from my mods folder and re-started the game. However; I am still encountering this odd issue. Do you guys have any idea what could be causing this? I'd love to get a reference from you before going through the tedious task of process of elimination with the massive MODs folder! 

thanks in advance

Hello,

Go under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\ and delete the following:

  localthumbscache.package
  the contents inside folder "cache" (not the actual "cache" folder though!)
  and the contents inside the folder "cachestr" (not the actual "cachestr" folder though!)

Then re-start the game again; see if the error persists. Good luck! Smile

UPDATE: The issue still remains after following instructions. I have deleted the contents of cache and cachestr to no avail. I will wait to update the game and see if that helps solve the issue

95% of the problems in Sims games are caused by CC.
Try a fresh start by renaming the folder The Sims 4 in Documents\Electronic Arts to The Sims 4_old.
Then restart your game again.
Problem solved ?

UPDATE: Okay so I went through 10gb of MODS, thankfully I have them categorized in folders which makes the process easier. I realized that I had UI Cheats duplicated in two separate folders without realizing. Removed he extra copy and the issue has been resolved.  Censored scratch Embarassed
