Look Out for the Tragic Clown, Now Available in The Sims 4

We're sorry
This is awkward. We wanted to add a new feature to The Sims 4 to make your Sims happier so we made a clown, but there seems to have been some sort of accident. Clowns are supposed to make people smile, right? Well, not this clown. This clown only makes people sad. It’s tragic, really. And totally accidental…
Just kidding. We made this clown bad at clowning around intentionally! Fans of the original The Sims might remember the classic Tragic Clown, a character that walked around making everyone miserable. The loveable(?) character is now back, free* in The Sims 4. If that doesn’t make you happy… well, the clown isn’t going to either. The Tragic Clown only makes Sims sad.
The Tragic Clown will be appearing around the world if you download the latest update to The Sims 4, so you’ll never know when this sad soul will show up and botch a juggling attempt. You can also summon him (or her, catastrophic tomfoolery is equal opportunity,) by viewing the Tragic Clown Painting, or you can even dress up in the Tragic Clown outfit if you want your Sim to be the bearer of bad fun. We’re excited to see how much your Sim loves this new addition to the game!

How 'bout TICKED OFF?!  Mad  That's what they call "an update"?!  pfffffffffft  How about they **FIX** the main menu where all the images that are supposed to be on the bottom, actually show up?! (and I mean, *every* time)  VikgAxMad


Sorry for hijacking this thread and spewing my rant all over. ALL THE PROGRESS I DID with the Rosebud Challenge is now gone! Devil Between their **STUPID** patches, and origin's constantly updating, it's a wonder why people don't just come right out and say SCREW THIS  (using the *other* word, actually).


I am SOOOOOOOOO pissed right now, I'd like to head over to EA's office and fire every one of them!



And I paid all that money to play a game like this?!???  VikgAxMad

What happened to your Rosebud save? Do you happen to have a backup?

The backup save (folder) is still on the desktop. But since I can't get into the gallery -- without the main menu images showing up -- that's where I lost everything. The saves folder doesn't work. Already tried. Between *that* folder and my other (challenge) game folder.

EA thinks they're doing us a "favor" by doing all these stupid patches. NO, they're not. Instead, all they're doing is giving us more headaches.

One suggestion (you may have already tried) is to rest your Sims4 folder.
Go to C:\Users\Name\Documents\Electronic Arts
Select TheSims4 folder and move the whole folder to the desktop.
Open the Origin client and start the game.
This will generate a brand new Sims4 folder with all the default settings.
Once the game has started you should see the buttons at the top Right corner for the gallery, open a saved game, start a new game, notification wall and the options menu.
Are these the buttons?
You can close out the game at this point.
You can now copy paste your save and Library folders into the new game.
The options can also be copy / pasted but I prefer to just reset them myself.
Test by opening the game again without Mods/CC items.
After being certain all is well (hopefully) you can continue to play.

That's the 1 thing I never do. (dummy me!)  But NOOOOO..... the icons in the upper right I do see when I had tried opening my game. I'm talking about the actual images on the bottom of the screen. You can click on them and they will take you *out* of the game and to a browser page. (i.e. thesims.com) Any way, if you can see the images on the bottom of the main menu, **that** tells you that you are online. I know, stupid. Even though I have 24/7 internet, I can't get into the gallery and see "what's trending" or the really big image when you open the gallery.

Here. Maybe this will help you understand.....


This is what happens whenever I tried putting my Rosebud saves folder back in (and the *other* challenge game I am playing) - after patching... NO images on the bottom of the main menu screen.




This happens when I repaired the game (a-gain and a-gain, and a-gain.... etc.) The images show up. NOW I can get to everything in the gallery. However, this is without any of *my* saves folders; just an empty one that the game generates. Now, I know that I don't have a corrupted game file or anything. But, this is STUPID!






Trust me, this is the *crap* _I_ have to go through every time we get a new "patch". If patching was simple like it was in the sims 3 -- all you had to do was **remember** to take your mods folder OUT -- then I wouldn't be having such a frigging hard time; every time.

That was my second guess (the images at the bottom of the screen). Deeply sorry you are having such a horrible experience.

It's o - k. Sad I guess. But since I did lose everything, I'm going to have to "remodel" Willow Creek the way I had it before all this mess. And by that I mean, re-adding the houses I had in there, and (obviously) bulldozing the ones I had taken out. But... I *do* have a curious question:

Since I did run into this problem, can I just use the money cheat and try to get *back* to the 500 mark? I know it's not going to be exact, considering I have to restart the doctor career.... a-gain. Otherwise, I may just skip the millionaire challenge, and just try the Lonely Hearts one.

'course, right now I don't even know if i'm going to be successful in trying to see if the *other* challenge I was playing is going to work, either.

Since this is an obviously frustrating glitch I will say yes to allowing cheats.

Awwwwwww {{ hugs }} thank you! And guess what? I decided to try repairing my game the way *you* suggested: Taking the main Sims 4 folder out, repair the game, and then slowwwwly replacing everything back. So far, so good! I do have a few mods/scripts that the game may not like -- tough Mad -- but since adding the "last one", I don't see the images on the bottom of the main menu, BUUUUUT!!!, I can get into the gallery! Soooo, 6 of one, half a dozen on the other, Right? One more mod/script to go, and if *that* works.... I am good to go!!!

But again, thanks. You really didn't have to let me cheat.

What an awful frustrating time you've been having MsPrissy. Glad things are getting better with your game.

So now there is a clown to make my Sims even sadder. Some of them take days to stop being sad after their parent dies. Mad

I am glad things are better. And IMO this is all supposed to for fun. Do whatever you want. Cheats or not. In RL we have to follow some rules, for Sims, do as you like.
