Create a sim - able to choose traits etc, but black character screen...

Post by Veroniiiqaa on Thu 23 Nov 2017, 19:58

So I have installed ALL of the packs and the basic + the new patch in the right order. Triple checked I had done it all right. I can launch the game fine with no problems, and when I go to create a sim there's no lag. Now the problem is that I can see all of the logos and choices 'in front', i.e. the traits, name change, hobbies etc. But the area where the actual is standing (I can hear it talk), is just BLACK. Its a black screen in the background where the sim is standing. This is puzzling me to no end. Help? Sad I had a look around and no one else seems to have posted this problem.

I'm on windows 10, and moved the sims 4 folder to c\programme files. I'm unable to launch the 64 bit version despite having a 64 bit system, but able to launch normal application with no problems.

EDIT* Ok so I just went ahead and pressed the random sim button and attempted to place my sim in her house, after the loading screen of placing her in a house, it automatically takes me back to the choose worlds/cities page again....I have obviously done something wrong Sad

EDIT 2* Please see the picture I have attached. This appears when I first launch the game..it says pack download in progress...

Hello and welcome to the Forum @Veroniiiqaa, Smile

Can you check which towns are available in your game? Use the "travel"-thing, and then click on the symbol in the top left corner. This should bring up another window where all worlds are installed.

The "easiest" solution could be for you to simply re-apply all the torrent DLCs, starting with "Get to Work". So re-copy and re-paste everything once more. See the post here too:
