Frustration x10

Okay, I have a major issue with my game. I sent Meadow, Phily, Henri, Victor & Jane to Three Lakes for part of a plotty thing I'm doing for the next chapter. All is good. Or so I thought.

I took them to one of the more expensive hotels. I got the pop-up about reserving rooms. I did so. Got the pop-up about checking in. Before I could, the game went into build mode. WTF? I exited to the neighborhood. No family. Went back to Portsimouth. I could load their house, and they "came back" from vacation after a few moments.

Tried this again 3 times with different hotels & the campground. Same result. One time, I didn't even have the family arrive.

For giggles, I tried in a differnt hood. Same results. I didn't try a different vacation hood as I was getting frustrated.

I'll have to pull my DL folder tonight, and see if I can get it to work that way. I haven't downloaded anything much lately, but I'm wondering if something got fouled up when I transfered to the new computer (the last vacation was on the old machine). If that works, I get to have fun with replacing subfolders one at a time. This is one of the moments when I'm glad that I'm so OCD about my CC.

I'm sensing a rebuild in my future. Sigh. On the flip side, I can actually build a custom Downtown and University to start with, so I can have everything the way I want it. But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Ugg that's bad. This is one of my fears anytime I send a family off on holiday's-that they won't come back. I've never had it happen *cross fingers* But so many people have had troubles.

Hope pulling the download folder works, although that bites if the problem is in there. Maybe something happened when you installed BV and it needs to be reinstalled.

I didn't lose them, per say, but I was pretty freaked out.

I found the bad hack (not updated for AL - my bad), and all is good. Thank goodness. Now only one more house to play through before I can get around to writing the next chapter.
