Glass vase and jar CC not showing correctly in game

Since the Cats & Dogs patches there have been various reports of some CC glass vases and jars not displaying properly in game:

So far I’ve only seen reports from Mac users but it may be affecting Windows users too. This is apparently happening because EA changed something glass related in the November patch. If you are experiencing this there is no fix at the moment that I know of. Either EA need to fix something or the CC creators do.

Leave a comment below if you are also experiencing this, Mac or Windows 🙂

Mac ‘Initialization error at start up’ since patch 1.24

Patch 1.24.102.1220 has been released but lots of Mac users are reporting that their games will not load. They are getting the following error message –

initializationerror

Initialization error at start up.

[135dec40:a69d8f94:00000069:00000000]

The numbers in bold uniquely identify this issue. EA are aware of it and hopefully addressing it. In the meantime the workaround is to simply press any key to skip through the intro videos. There are main threads for this over at AHQ and the officials:

Edit – that was quick! EA have already released an update to fix the issue (28/10/16) 😀

Sims 4 will not close and Force Quit doesn’t work either

This seems to be an emerging issue for Mac users since the June patch – the Sims 4 will not close properly when exiting out of the game. The game will appear to close but will still be running in the background. Using Force Quit does nothing and using Activity Monitor to quit processes doesn’t work either.

If you are suffering from this issue PLEASE post in this thread. The more info obtained the more likely we can come up with a fix.

Thanks 🙂
