View Full Version : Aging glitch in game

27th Aug 2012, 7:40 AM
It's been awhile since I play Sims on this computer, so everything felt all nice and new again. But there seems to be a glitch - probably something I caused - that I can't track down. My Sims are just not aging. Any of them. I've tried the cheat window and "aging on" with no luck. Looked in my downloads folder for some mod or hack I may have put in. I had ijAgecons and took it out. No luck.

Any ideas where to look next? Is it my whole game that is fried? Is there a general reset button that won't erase everything?

1. Are you playing Strangetown?

2. Do you have InTeen?

Is there a general reset button that won't erase everything?

First say if anything Fivey said is true. Remember, everything below is kinda the 'if all else fails' method.

You should make a backup of your user files. Do it.

Then, follow this FAQ (http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Reset_All_User_Files) (Resetting all user files).

That is a general reset button, but it will erase everything (but if you have a backup, it won't, you could easily restart from where you left ;) ).

Try removing your downloads folder to see if that's what's causing it. If you have InTeen, spawn the biological clock and then delete it.

*Edit* The above two posters and the one below are right/have good advise. First back up folders. Since InTeen is known to have this issue, if you have it, try spawning the biological clock fix first. If that doesn't work, usually the problem is custom content, but work through the FAQ to diagnose problems in the game.
