Need to return from vacation
« on: August 02, 2017, 10:46:26 PM »
I've been perusing every resource I can find to figure out how to fix this but I am stumped.

So like many other people with this same problem, my sim is frozen while sounds and animation from ambient objects continue.  I just finished making my vacation, and saved (smart right?).  Well when I resume gameplay, and speed, he freezes.  I tried replacing the saved game with the backup one that auto generates, but same situation.  So here's a list of a few things I have tried:

resetsim - it reset him, but once game play resumed, same frozen thing
delete local town homes - thought it may be a memory thing, so lets free some up.  No dice
used nrass to change household to a different family on vacation - once gameplay was resumed, same thing

Really, what I want to do is just get my sim back to his world from vacation, but can't figure out how without the convention phone call to return home.  Is there a way using testcheatsenabled or nrass' latest version to force that while it's paused?

Well going back to try more troubleshooting, something got borked, and said that I was missing an expansion to reload the game.  But I was able to get my sim and his progress back to the main world.

Fortunately, I had an older backup of my saves.  I duplicated my unplayable save (Riverwood).  Then copied my older backup over as "Riverview.sims3".  Next, in "Riverview.sims3", I replaced Riverwood .nhd and .package with the ones from my duplicate.  Now I lost progress from France, but I was able to restore my character back to Riverwood and the progress I made there.  Whew!

Hope this is of use to somebody who might have something similar to this  :)
