    Objects disappear from Inventory

    Problem Things disappear from my Inventory when I change the active household I’m missing stuff (have extra stuff) when I come back from University/Traveling/the Future Cause This is not a bug but EA wanted this to be this way. There’s a daily routing that cleans out the inventory and all inactive fridges.

There are still a few objects that get cleaned out this way. Leave everything you don’t need…

Installing the EP will reset all your Sims so for example not being in a vacation town or at Uni at the time, reduces the changes of game corruption. If you want to be on the safe side, also remove your mods/custom content. Start a new game after the installation. Get a feeling for what’s new. If…
