Information is all gone... only the characters are left

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

So, my game was totally fine until we had a power outage a couple of nights ago. This actually happens a lot and has never caused me huge issues before. However, when I reloaded my game this time, everything was fine in all of the neighborhoods except for the one that I'd been playing. There, all of the information has been wiped. The sims still exist and live in homes, but they are all set up so that they: don't have any family, don't know anyone, have no personality, no skills, bottomed out aspiration, no memories, businesses and jobs gone, ect. Essentially, what is left on that neighborhood is all the same sims that already existed and in their houses, but nothing else. I'm not sure if there's anything at all that can be done about it, and I honestly doubt there is, but I figured I would see if anyone had ideas.

sounds like BFBVFS indeed. You can at least salvage their appearances with SimPE. As to those power outages, don't those damage your computer? Maybe you should get like a surge protector or something.

Having a computer plugged directly into an outlet, without a surge protector, is asking for trouble. However, if power goes out, the computer shuts down without saving regardless of what you have it plugged into. Even if you had some sort of generator backup, you'd have a blip in power.

If you have a backup, TimeStop, pull that. If not, you'll have to clone the sims in SimPE/CAS and rebuild the 'hood from scratch. Do not play the neighborhood as it currently is.

That's what you need a UPS for, it keeps the power running in the event of flickers, or when you change over the generator.

Alright, thanks guys. I'm going to try playing off a backup and if that doesn't work I'll use simPE.
