Default Rebuild Routing Data Stopped Working - *FIXED*
The Rebuild Routing Data in CAW has stopped working. One day it was fine; the next day it wouldn't work at all. I click on the function and nothing at all happens. The check mark doesn't even appear. Show Routing Data still functions properly.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled CAW. I have uninstalled my version and installed different versions, including SuperCAW. The Rebuild Routing Data function does not work in any of them, not even with the Sunset Valley Lite files that load with CAW installation.

Does anyone know of any way to fix this? Or if my world will work okay without it? (I am trying to edit pre-existing EA worlds, both Appaloosa Plains and Starlight Shores.) I appreciate any tips you might have.

How do you know it doesn't work? It's a one-time action, you click on the option in the menu and CAW does its thing. It never had a check mark, that is only for Show Routing Data which you can toggle on or off.

Thanks for responding, Norn (I LOVE your worlds and lots, btw).

Previously, when I clicked on the Rebuild and moved the camera slightly, the routing lines would flicker, indicating something was happening. Now, when I click nothing at all happens. Routing lines do not appear, and if I have the Show Routing Data selected, the lines do not flicker. It doesn't seem as if anything at all is happening.

I'll be relieved if I've been worrying over nothing at all.

You can try to move the camera around, it helps me sometimes. If it still doesn't work, you have to actually do something with the routing.

Thanks for the tip. I have been moving the camera directly after selecting the Rebuild option. It doesn't seem to do anything. Still hopeful that it's nothing to worry about.

Put down a plant where a connection point should be a rebuild again.

Thank you, pureheart Happy to hear you enjoy my builds. Yes, what Volvenom said. Put a large rock or object somewhere and rebuild the routing. If you move the camera now, the routing grid should look different. If it doesn't, well, then Sims 3 has stopped working

Thank you both! I'll try that today (had to leave immediately after posting yesterday. Saw "Hamilton." It was amazing!)
