How to Fix Chef Not Showing Up in the Sims 4 Game

To fix the problem of the chef not showing up in Sims 4, you need to know that it is a bug problem relating to the restaurant staff; but, let’s take a look at some easy steps to fix this bug:

1. Fix for Mods and CC

After every mod update made, most of the script mods and parts of the CC would be spoiled which would affect the game, you need to check what broke down after the new patch that comes with the mod update that was installed.

If any, replace the broken patch with a new one, or delete the broken patch altogether to help resolve the issue.

Additionally, you may need to move the mod folder to the desktop, then delete the “Localthumbcache.package” file and the “Cache” folder in the game.

2. Fix Sims 4 with Origin 

Log into Origin and then go to “Library”, right-click on The Sims 4 then choose the “Repair game” option, and then wait for Origin to fix all the broken packs and the base game automatically. 

Next, switch the game on to create a new empty mods folder, and check if the game can run now with the fresh CC and mods.

Also, check to see if there is any updated version of the CC and mods that you have been making use of, then copy your CC and mods from the desktop and paste them one after the other in the new folder for mods.

Use the same process to paste CC as well, you might have a lot of CC, and if you do just use the 50/50 method (dividing your CC into 50 CC in a single subfolder and checking the subfolders one after the other) to place them.

3. Fix by resetting the chefs
