Disappearing Inventory Why do my Sims keep losing their inventory? When one of them moves or I change active households all their inventory disappears. It's really annoying as they have bought quite a few skill books and then all of a sudden they're gone as well as any food and other things they had saved. I also had a couple get married and when she moved into the household everyone in the house lost their inventory. Also I'm having a problem with the bookcase. How come when I open the bookcase there are a lot of books shown but I can't access them? Is it supposed to be this way? If I have a Sim put a book away I can never have them read it again either.
