When my sims stopped interacting with objects. They stopped fixing the beds, they stopped getting the mail, they stopped driving their was weird, and I immediately got rid of the game for the fear it could get worse.

OMG! I totally forgot to mention this one! There was this toddler that Maxis made...and it would go to EVERYONE'S house and float in mid air and then pick up a newspaper and then fall down then crawl and repeat! I was so annoyed by it that I killed the toddler with boolprop....I'm evil lol >=D

The Kim family in Belladona Cove has a cat called Cheezta or something, she recently died in my game, then my next play was the Contender house, nobody in that house belonged to Kim family, then the cat walked through front door, came in front of my sim and looked at her, I put cursor over that cat head, it said "Kim", then I let my sim chased it off. That's so scarry, hopefully there's no ghost in my computer.

I guess I'm pretty lucky, I haven't had anything too bad. But when I tried to hack the camera my game crashed =( I am such a noob xD

I must live a charmed life. In the two years I've been playing I've never had any glitches...and I've never downloaded any EA patches, just some player-made hacks to fix some EA bugs/stupidities. And I have a ton of CC on certain user accounts and my game's hacked to hell and back, so I'm surprised that I haven't had any. But the worst I've ever had is bad downloaded lots that crash my game, but that's not the game's fault. Oh, and occasionally when a Sim gets up from eating at the dinner table, they do this weird deep knee bend, but I don't know if that's a glitch or a problem with the CC table and/or chair.

But judging from this thread...I kinda want some glitches because they seem hilarious.

I'm mostly found on (and mostly upload to) Tumblr these days because, alas, there are only 24 hours in a day.

This glitch doesn't scare me as much as it pisses me off! I hate it when my sims get stuck at work. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does, I have to move the family out and then re-furnish everything. It's just a pain in the ass.

Messing around in CAS. Suddenly everything except the sim's face disappeared, and the floating flap of skin zoomed out and got smaller until there was no sim, only that which is beyond the CAS screen. Outside, in-game, my scrolling was screwed, backwards. That is to say, if I scrolled up, the camera would pan down and vice-versa for all the controls. Quite alarming.

Most people learn by observation, and there are the few who learn by experimentation. And then there are those who actually TOUCH the fire to see if it's really hot.

I just DL'ed a hack, from Inge Jones. It was the lockers hack and can be found here . So, i downloaded it for BV, my current latest ep. Then i installed AL, and i forgot to update the hack . Then all apartment doors got an error message when placed. I really 'ed. Then i moved in some sims into Bella's Belle Townhomes (or whatever the name is) and when i rented the apartment. Then i got another error message. Then i 'ed. Later, i noted the rent apartment option wasn't anymore. I deleted it and it worked correctly. Also, with a Gypsy Potion Mod, the option ''Gipsy Potion Statistics'' was even avaliable at restaurant chefs. Kinda weird.

The mom was potty training a todler and the todler just sat there and frose. I couldn't make her do anything and neither could the parents. I had to make the family move so the social worker wouldn't take her away.

A simmaliar thing happened when one of the sims was washing a dog. The sims could get in the tub too. The dog just stood there in the bathtub and all his needs went to red and he got taken away.

Sometimes sims will go to bed and never get out so I have to make the move.

A while ago whenever I pressed the video button it would turn everything BLACK. It was easily fixed by quitting without saving, but if you saved......your house was pretty much dead cause you could hardly see anything. I still don't know what caused it, or why it stopped.

I don't know if this is a glitch. Once I had an adult son go back to visit his father and grandfather after he had moved out. While he was visiting, dad and gramps went to bed, and sonny boy picked up one of their puppies, stared it in the face, and walked out of the house and off down the sidewalk. Still holding the puppy up in front of him and grinning at it like an idiot.

I quit without saving and when I restarted both puppies were back where they were supposed to be. But I didn't know a sim could steal a pet.

that all happened after i installed bv

That was a conflict with... InSim or InTeen, I believe. Probably InTeen, because I remember that happening in my game right after I installed BV, and crying because I had to play vanilla until they updated the mod.

Glitches are hilarious! One time, My sim was bathing a dog, and the dog wouldn't leave the tub. It just kept bubbling, and my sim even had a bath with the dog.

This happened on my old game on my old computer - when I loaded the lot a sim had a flowerpot sticking out of his head. I don't know why, but I just found that especially disturbing... but when I went into buy mode it was selectable, so I grabbed it and deleted it.

I thought it was because of his custom hair, bu it happened again with a paperboy, only he had a computer in his abdomen. AFAIK, the paperboy had no custom on him at all. :shrug:


Also, this has happened a few time when I'm on an apartment lot and the neighbors glitch an won't go back inside and pass out every 12 hours... well every so often, the game-events window will pop up focusing on that neighbor and will not go away. So when I zoom to the neighbor, they are staring at you. And will not stop. I mean, when you turn the camera they turn with you. It's terribly creepy, but the way I fix it is temporarily selecting them, run into their apartment, fill up their needs, then run back out. When I deselect them, they return back to normal.

Huh... I had played for a whole day straight then sevral times my toddlers walked out of the house , went to the trash can. and froze there. So... i just deleted them( What a father i am...) then everything went somoothly! xD Until the mother got pregnant with twins. Thyen the cycle went on after birth. So i moved them all out and 'wella'. No Glitch. I had seriously laughed my ass off every time the baby stood there. Social worker came, could not pick baby up. She left then i deleted them.

Hehe. A glitch I just had was, well does anyone know Carlos Contender? I was being one of the premade families and had just moved in, and Carlos came by in the welcome wagon. Then later that day he invited me to go out to Downtown with him. So I went to Lombaste, or whatever that fancy restaurant is in Downtown. But unfortunately, you know that toddler, Carlos' great-nephew I think? Yeah, he was there. And he decided to order spagetti after sitting down in a chair (he didn't get out of the taxi, he was already by the mailbox) but he didn't eat it! Then we tried to leave but he couldn't get in to the taxi so everyone was there till 3 am waiting, then I used boolprop dormspecifictoolsdisabled false, and moveobjects, and deleted that kid and the taxi was out of there before I knew it But the kid arrived home safely, hehe.

my whole game turned white once, first all the thought bubbles got whted out, then this one dress, then certain pair of shoes, then all of a sudden the whole screen was white except for the sims themselves and the furniture *updated 7-13-11* please leave a comment if you read it!

My sim was on a uni comm lot. Date had just ended, and he asked the sim if she needed a ride home. Then he had to run to the final exam. Date left. When he got back, he called a taxi, but after he got in, it would reset because the date was no longer on lot to go home with him. Had to exit without saving and redo it all. The date had gone so well, too.

Oh, I remember one glitch that spooked me. I had Bon Voyage installed, and at that time it was the only EP I had. My sim was in her house, and Mrs Crumplebottom appeared on my property. She was wearing her Athletic outfit and was wandering aimlessly around the back yard. Whenever I tried to interact with her, it would cancel out.

I'm not quite sure how to post pictures, but when I'll do I'll post mine.

I had a child, that was stuck in toddler state. She was the size of a child but crawled, potty trained etc. Her parents were teaching a child how to talk.

Not sure if its a glitch or my sister joking around, but I was buying stuff for a dorm, went away for a little bit, came back, and EVERYTHING in the two story dorm was ON THE GROUND or in the WRONG place!
