@playalot. Thanks!  Didn't see the edit. 

@shewolf did you try removing the table while in manage worlds build mode?  Hopefully you get it figured out.  All these issues with the game...  I guess all we can do is hope our game doesn't run into them sadly.

Yeah, I did.  I can remove the table now, but then I try to save and I get the new error: 526.  I don't even know what to do at this point.  Tried using the repair game option in origin.  That didn't fix it either.  I'm just beside myself at this point.  I exited out of the game.  I'll see what else I can try later when I'm not so upset and frustrated.

@shewolf a couple more things I found that might work.  Delete the game from your PC and reinstall it (don't forget to back up your save file).  Empty your mods folder entirely.  Do save as instead of just save.  Don't know if this will work.  Good luck!

Edit: one last thing.  Depending on how desperate you are...  Bulldoze the house.  Try a clean start.

Tried the Save as.  Same problem.  I am looking into the uninstalling/reinstalling aspect.  I don't have any mods at all.  I'm not sure about the bulldozing option.  I'd probably have to get permission for that and I'm not even sure it would work at this point.

@shewolf:  if it doesn't work, you're back where you were before anyways.  might be worth a shot just to see if it WILL work, then if it does and the board approves it you can move on.  Make sure not to overwrite your current save is all.

So an update on the error 529 and 526.  I posed the question to the Tech Help board and the best answer seems to be moving the family and lot to the gallery and starting a new game.  There are a couple other options, I will try those, but tomorrow... I can't deal with this anymore tonight.

Shewolf, I got an error code when I tried to save yesterday. I sent someone from the household to a community lot and was able to save from there. When I tried to start my game, I couldn't, for two or three times, but the 4th time I got in. I chose the auto-save, deleted my old save, and have been able to play with no problems.

As for bulldozing the house, there's nothing in the rules against doing that. Just remember to put your immortals' collections in family inventory beforehand.

I just tried that.  No dice.  It seems to be the entire house is glitched... I sent my pollinator off to another lot to meet a pretty lady.  She was a teen when they got there, but she aged up while they were there.  He has the serial romantic aspiration, so I said, might as well have them go on a date back at their place... got there and she was back to a teen and they didn't know each other, even though they tried for baby at her house.  So it seems that the entire lot is bugged. 

Challenge Team, may I save a copy of the house to the gallery, bulldoze the lot and put it back?  I'll save all the collections and what not to the family inventory.  I'm running out of options to see what to do.

If this doesn't work, and the challenge team allows it, you might try moving to the other 50x50 lot.  Also, try saving while the lot is bulldozed, it might be a household item causing it.

Are non-heirs allowed to miss school? As in, could I have Cassandra Goth stay at the house and paint all day?

Thanks very much team.  But I wanted to report back... I tried bulldozing.  It won't even bulldoze.  It just says object not found.  I'm afraid that spells the death of that file... The technical problems and glitches encountered so far are really turning me off of TS4 at this point.  I hope EA fixes this stuff soon...

My understanding is yes non-heirs can miss school.

Quote from the rules =
"Non-Immortal household members (spouses, spare children, and other live-ins) are not tied to the same restrictions as immortals. They are free to choose any careers, skills, etc."

Playalot is correct (in case anyone needed confirmation from a team member). There's actually a rule specifically stating that heir school-aged children cannot stay at home, but the implied message there is that it's ONLY for heirs.

Hey all, rules check.  The level 6 mischief skill "play hooky" using the phone is an acceptable method of skipping a day of school correct?

I'm inclined to say that missing school is missing school, no matter how you accomplish it. So no.

I'm back with one more piece of news about the error 526.  I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game through Origin.  It still persists.  It seems the only thing left to me is to save the family and the house to the gallery, then start a new game.  I imagine this is not something that I can do though and remain HOF eligible?

Then writing an excuse note with another Sim doesn't work either I'd assume.  Thanks for the clarification!

Seems like I got another bugged party counter. This time I was throwing a black and white party got some tricky goals and all but everything was going all right until the main goal was completed and the counter refuses to register it as completed and add it to the score bar.
The party is currently registering as a complete failure although with the main goal completed it should be at least a silver.
There is also another bug going on with the goal to make a black and white cake and make an excellent (I think) meal switching back and forth every time I pause the game and neither adding to the score.

I do have a previous saved game from just before I called up the party but I'm getting a bit irritated at that particular party.

@Margerita - yeah that stinks. Go ahead and go back to the previous save if you want.

@Metropolis Man: Thank you I'll go back to the previous save and I think I'll go for a regular house party instead.

This will probably need to be moved, sorry.  I looked for this topic, and I couldn't find one, so I thought with challenge would probably be the best.  I was wondering about the challenge tournament.  Is it going to begin in January and if so, is the first challenge going to be posted soon?

Hi christinal3106 - nice to hear from you. It's ok about posting in the Dynasty thread. Yeah, believe it or not I will be posting the first two rule sets on Thursday, so you can check them out then. :)

Oh my goodness... I was checking out some of my games and found an older save.  I had completely forgotten about it because I didn't really give it a name.  Do I have permission to go back to that save?  That one doesn't have the error.
