Missing Currency Troubleshooting Information
Missing currency can due to a variety of reasons, mostly commonly reverting to an old Cloud save, or a failed purchase. Missing currency typically involves the loss of Simoleons, Life Points (LP) and Social Points (SP) at once. It is rare that only one type of currency, such as LP, will be missing.
- Restoring an old save from the Cloud
- This involves Uploading to the Cloud, making significant progress in the game, and then Downloading from the Cloud and replacing your most recent save
- Can appear to be lost, for example
- Starting to build a building such as a career workplace can cost many thousands of Simoleons
- Using LP to skip a long task, such as a 24 hour task costing 24 LP
- Using LP to upgrade workstations in Professions, rather than Resources
- Making large purchases such as these close together can appear to cause lost progress in currency
- Caused by a crash or lost progress
Troubleshooting and Prevention
Before submitting a ticket to Technical Support, there are a number of things you can try to help you quickly resolve your problem.
- Determine how the currency went missing - was it accidentally spent on a large building upgrade? Did it occur with a crash?
- Restore your save from the Cloud
- If you have a recent game save in the Cloud, you can restore it to recover lost progress. This will revert to an older version of your game
Regularly Upload to the Cloud
If a crash or issue does occur, you can restore your game to the latest save by downloading a previous save from the Cloud. We recommend Uploading to the Cloud at the end of every session of Game-play, when you are finished play.
