I've gone through and done everything there is I can think of... I recreated my scenario in a new game with Crescent Cove and my custom content..
See that image up there? Something was obviously corrupted in my game. But what? I can't seem to figure it out. It's so frustrating. I never had this many problems with Sims 2. :|
That being said.. my VDSL is fucked now. I don't know what to do. I don't know how to extract in game sims like in Sims 2 or if that's even possible. I've looked around at some things - couldn't find anything on it.
On the bright side I've cleaned up my CC a lot. Optimized it and what not. Game loads a lot faster that way. That's the only good thing right now :(
