This user has the following games installed:

Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time, Apartment Life
Default [FIXED] Sim gone when moved into new lot and is build mode only
Agh, okay so this problem I cannot figure out. A sim graduated from Uni and he can't be moved into a lot by himself. Meaning, once I move him into the lot, and it loads - it shows the taxi and as soon as the taxi zooms off, the guy is nowhere and the lot is in build mode, no live mode available because the sim is nowhere.

Some facts:

1. The apartment lots I have moved him to have had sims there before just fine. I have tried moving him into two apartment lots and a blank residentail lot but they all go straight into build mode and the sim is gone.

2. I had him move in with his parents via the teleportation cat and he seemed fine but as soon as he left to 'find his own place' and moved in the same thing happened.

3. I tried moving a different single sim into one of the same apartment complexes to see if the problem affected more than just my first sim and he showed up like normal so this affects just this one sim and I don't know why. Is there any tips or tricks anyone could give me to look for in SimPE so he is able to move in to a new apartment or lot by himself?

Or anyone have this happen before and able to fix it?

**Update** Fact 4. I was able to move him from the dorm to a graduation party lot just fine. It was only after he graduated and I was moving him from the normal sim bin to a downtown, the issue came up.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

I would look very carefully at the cc on the sim myself. (I say that due to the problem I had a while back with 3 male sims not being able to eat in my game. Different households, huge hood, only those 3. Took me some time to realise they had the same hairstyle. Turns out I had both the original and a fixed mesh for that hairstyle in my downloads folder. Rmoved the original mesh and they all ate like kings ).

Since you can move other sims in and out, I don't think the problem is with the lots.

The first time I moved him in he was in maxis clothing because he had just aged to adult after graduation. However, he was born with custom eyes and I think he kept his custom hair from Uni. I can try changing his hair but he was the only guy moving in to an otherwise empty apartment with no other occupants. Did you find that out just by testing in game or did you find that out in Sim PE?

Actually, when I realised that the sims had the same hairstyle (It took me some time, to be honest; big hood, different colours hair) - I just went and looked at the hair in my downloads folder. (And, to be fair,there was a readme doc from the creator, as well as the 2 meshes side by side, so all my own fault).

Here's some things I have planned to test:

1. Move him back in with his parents via teleportation cat, and then change his hair to maxis. See if that affected him. This didn't work when I gave him maxis hair.

2. If not, have him move in with another already occupied apartment lot and see if he ruins their life by making it go into build mode and both sims are missing or see if the other sim's agency overpowers original sim guy's issue and they both are playable like they should be. In that case I will just have to use a sim buddy for him to move around the rest of his life. The game crashed when I tried moving him with the sim already on the lot

3. I dread if step 2 doesn't work, but then the next step would be removing the new job mod I downloaded from Lamare (the sim doesn't have a job through it, but it's the most recent mod I had put in my game before this issue presented itself) Ruling out the mod as culprit because I could move a sim in with the same circumstances without issue.

Things I did:
Tried combining the sim with the normal one into the apartment lot the normal one moved into fine. This newly graduated problem sim crashed the game when trying to combine families and load.

Gave him vanilla hair, still crashed.

I moved out a different graduated-from-uni sim into the neighborhood with no problems so I'm ruling out Lamare's mod having to do with the weirdness for the original sim with issue.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHY HE IS LIKE THIS. MAYBE IT'S JUST CORRUPTION.

So I am going to try my back up from last week before he got weird to see if it makes a difference.

Things I did:
1.Restored hood from last week's back up after an ordeal of trying to get my hood to show up
2. Cheated to get him graduated to test if he can move out to the big bad world without going into build mode
3. Had him peace out of SSU
4. Moved him into an apartment
5. He shows up, and it doesn't go straight to build mode.

So, I have NO idea what caused him to bork out in the first place by my theory is that it had something to do with a texture memory glitch (where everything turns flashing magenta) because the first apartment I move dhim into was full of flashing pink. I quit without saving so he was still on the lot when I loaded the game and moved him out. I dunno, something changed him and he was forever borked.

TL;DR: ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR HOODS because it might be the onlyt hing you can do to fix an issue.
