View Full Version : Build/ Buy Mode Leaves Marks.
9th Apr 2012, 3:56 AM
Starting a few weeks ago, whenever I go into build or buy mode to purchase or sell something, the blue plus mark that normally comes up for a second and then disappears stayed frozen on my screen. By the end of a buying spree, my screen is full of annoying blue marks, though they disappear once I enter live mode. I have been looking on different forums for answers to this, but have so far found nothing. Any help would be much appreciated.

Sims 3 - Game Problems
Please go through this FAQ and follow the instructions, doing each step in order and not skipping anything:
Game Help:Sims 3 Game Problem
Most issues with the game can be resolved by following those steps.
Sims 3 - Incompatible CC
Every time you patch or install a new EP, most of your hacks will need to be updated or removed. If you are having any kind of problem and you've just patched or installed a new EP, remove all your custom content and delete your cache files (http://www.simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Sims_3_Delete_Cache_Files). Then, unless the problem is specific to one sim or lot, make a new town and see if the issue occurs there too.
If, having done so, the issue is fixed, then you have some incompatible CC. Any hacks - things which change the game's behaviour - are likely suspects and should be updated or removed; things like objects, clothes, hairs etc are generally safe.
Did you just patch or install a new add-on? That's a symptom of having an outdated nomosaic mod.
Doing that standard 3-step-troubleshooting (the Game Problem FAQ) would quickly clear up if it is or not.

Thank you so much! It was the nomosaic mod, and I cannot thank you enough for you help!
