Missing Collection?
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:40:03 PM »
Even though my Sim has several refined gems in her inventory, some of which she refined herself and others she bought, when I open up the collections tab I cannot find the Refined Gems Collection, it's just not there at all. Yet when she returned from one of her earlier vacations it was there, it's only been missing since I repaired the game to get rid of a bug I had. Has this created a new bug?  :-\

Does you still have the refined gems in storage somewhere?
If you move them in your sims personal inventory again, won't they re-register in the Collections tab?

No, I never put them in storage, they were always in her inventory, I've tried pulling them out and putting them back in again and they still don't register. This could be related to several things.

I just had a bug where everything in her personal inventory duplicated in her family inventory, caused Last Exception error messages and became unusable or would vanish if I tried to drag them out. I repaired my game and that's when I noticed I couldn't see the Refined Gems collection.

I had just put a couple of gems in Relics before I checked the collection, maybe that has something to do with it? I dunno.

I did buy a few refined gems from a vendor so I was thinking that maybe it's only gems she finds and refines herself that show up but I'm pretty show those were showing up in her collection (It had been working previously) just a few days prior.


My games have been so buggy lately, clearing my caches doesn't do as much as it used to and even repairing the game only works for a little while. I'm seeing old bugs returning and new ones like this well, I can't figure if it's just my game being a toad or if the Sims 4 got a whole lot buggier since the Jungle Adventures patch, most of my bugs did start around that time but I just don't know anymore. *Sigh*  :(

Cold comfort but the game is very buggy at the moment. The EA Bug Forums are testament to that. It seems the last patch broke a lot of things so all we can do (I know you've heard this before but...) is wait for some devs fixes in the next patch. Hopefully soon too.

I don't know what to suggest other than hopping into the debug menu and giving your sim back the crystals they lost. All the refined crystals are in there so search by name or just search by 'refined' and scroll.
