Playables Cannot Interact with Other Sims. [SOLVED]

Post by meredithofark on Wed 17 Oct 2018, 16:47

Hi! I'm new here, although I've used gamesfortheworld torrents before, including the sims 4 ones on an old computer. I'm having an issue I can't find a response to anywhere else.

This is a fresh install of the Sims 4 using the up-to-date gamesfortheworld forum torrents and install guide. Everything seems to work, except my sims can't interact with each other, except in certain circumstances.

Examples:
Sim A, newly created and plopped enthusiastically into the world, is chilling at home when the welcome wagon arrives. She has the options to "greet" her neighbours and does so.. only for all further options to disappear! I can click on the other sim, and it makes the 'click' noise, but nothing happens. Notably, Sim A has the options and is able to interact with her kitten. Sim A can also self-interact.

Sim B and C, newly created, wed, and unleashed beside the bed where they are expected to consummate shortly, are standing awkwardly outside their new home. Both can autonomously talk to each other, but neither can be controlled, click noise be damned. Sims B and C can also self-interact.

Is this a known issue? I've tried resetsim, and none of these sims have anything in their inventory, so it can't be the jam problem.

Thanks in advance!

Do you have any mods? Try moving Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 folder to desktop (or delete it if you don't care about saves) and test it again.

If it's still broken, run the validator and post the result here.

No mods, problem persisted once I deleted the folder, and random-made test sims D and E. So far I've only tested with young adults - but I don't imagine the results would be much different otherwise.

The validator results:

report:

Version: 1.46.18.1020
Folder: The Sims 4

Hash mismatch:

ep02/clientfullbuild0.package
game/bin/graphicscards.sgr

Missing files:

Extract "ep02/clientfullbuild0.package" file from "The Sims 4 - Get Together.rar" and paste it to "The Sims 4\EP02" folder; delete those files:
game/bin/core/winhttp.dll
game/bin/rldorigin.dll
game/bin/rldorigin.ini
game/bin/rldorigin_ext.dll
game/bin/rldorigin_x64.dll
game/bin/rldorigin_x64_ext.dll

and try again.

Maybe a small piece of advice from my end...I would suggest you leave the installation folder of The Sims 4 just in one place. Moving it around too much can cause certain files "not being moved properly", and you end up with broken files. Seem to happen frequently under Windows 10.

Either way, have fun with the game and feel free to get in touch with us again, anytime! Problem solved, topic closed.
