Fresh Vamp singer freezing on stage
« on: March 17, 2012, 12:53:54 PM »
OK, so I turned my singer to a vampire. The first gig he got after that was also his first 'Regular' gig. He's singer level 6. When he sets up his stage, he just stands on the stage. The pyro around him works well, but he freezes. I tried resetsim and when I got to the gig location again, the same thing happened. Help?

Ok, I checked and I guess it wasn't cause of the regular gig... It happened to me when I was in a 'irregular' gig too... Is it cause he's a vampire?

It shouldn't be. I've had no problems with my vampire or vampire ghost performing in my game. Both are singers.

Ok, now I even changed my stage setup (I was thinking that the problem was that my set (the lights that you get on lvl 5 or 6) weren't there), and still - it's the same. He just stands there, the pyro is working, and even when the show should be over, he doesn't even end...

There's a thread that explains about them in the Tech section:  http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,3852.0.html

Does this happen with only this one performer? Is your other performers ok?

When your singer set up the venue, did you use move objects on?

No don't use it. I thought you have perhaps. Does the sim freeze on a small stage or at a big venue? A big venue like hio poloi. Hope I spell that right lol.

He's level 6... I don't really know what was that venue called, but it was inside and the preset stage setup was cannons..., but he also froze in the park that you start in (I really don't know the names yet).

I think you must save your sim to the library and put him in a new Starlight shores. He will keep his job and will still be a vampire. He will only loose relationships.

I want to keep my entire family, and I can't move it to the clipboard, because my daughter is at boarding school...

Can anybody help with anything else on the subject?

You can try this. If the sim is bugged it will help. Move him in edit town to the clipboard and move him back on. He will keep relationships. But he will loose his wishes. Save before you do it.

Great tips here already.
Though I like to ask if this p.o.d. occurred in this savegame or also another?
You could either wait till your Sim is back from boarding school or call her back, than move the family to another town and let her Rollin college once again.
Since this can be done without the need to save your original savegame this will be a save test for you.

I don't really understand what you're asking me... In another save game, before I even sent the girl to boarding school (before she even aged up for that matter), this bug was also happening, if that's what you're asking :D

No, I meant if this also happens in a total different savegame, if you have one.
But perhaps that's not even important right now.
Try getting your girl back from college and see what you can do according to city swapping.b.c. I'm almost certain that will fix your problem.
If not: we'll just keep searching.

I had/am having a very similar problem. My first singer on her first gig was set to perform at the coffee shop. I set up the stage and it sounds like the same thing happened to her as it did Widonja's Sim. She froze in place and didn't move (the occasional twitch here and there, however). I was already set to separate the household anyways after this performance, so I moved her sister to a new house. After playing it for many Sim days (possibly two Sim weeks) the singer is STILL frozen on the stage at the coffee shop!! I didn't even notice until I happened to be strolling by.

Now, on top of that, I'm not sure if this bug is related, but her sister and her new born baby AND her cat AND dog stopped aging! And her banana tree stopped growing too.  :( AND there's more! Relationship meters are stuck as well. It's like they're all frozen! Everything! The baby even says it has 6 days until it grows up, but it's been at least 7 since he was born and according to my aging options the baby stage should only last 3 days.

Seriously.
