I have an odd bug, and hopefully someone can help me figure out what to make of it.
My game freezes on menu selections that would normally access inventory. I've noticed it in a couple of places:
1. If I try to feed an omni plant, the "feed" menu option does nothing, and then the game freezes or runs extremely slowly for a couple of minutes.
2. There's an adventure in France where you place something from your inventory on a pedestal. Same problem: the "place" menu option does nothing and the game goes haywire.
So obviously it's hanging when trying to access my sim's inventory. I can sort through the inventory fine as long as it's not through one of those menu options.
I have no mods, and I am pretty sure all of my CC is EA-made. Googling found me a couple of other people with the same problem, but no solutions. In general my game has run very slowly since installing WA, but that may or may not be related.
I already tried the cache files, unfortunately, because I assumed it was inventory cache.
It's family inventory that's borked, I realized. Those "feed" and "place" options must call what's in family inventory as well as sim inventory. When family inventory is empty, those menu options do nothing but the game doesn't freeze, so that's helpful.
My next step would be to reinstall and not restore any of my old save games, but that's not really worth it. Thanks for the responses folks.
