PostSubject: need help asap !!!!   9/12/2012, 13:56

Ok so here is my problem

Each time i go in game to either play or take pics or whatever it wont save, it stays on the saving screen for far too long. To give you an example of time scale this is what happened today.

I went in game, I played my baby challenge, I aged up 3 kids, redecorated rooms, nothing major. I had other things to do so I clicked save.

I went and done laundry 10 mins
I emptied and re-stacked dishwasher 10 mins
I had a cigarette 5 mins

plenty of time for it to save, when i returned to my pc it was still saving !!!!

I then went and used the bathroom 5 mins
I hung up wet laundry 10 mins

still saving, to exit the game i had to re-start my pc so all i had done in game was lost. Any ideas on what is going on????

frustrated

I have had that happen to me recently too. I found allowing the game to start a fresh Sims 3 folder then moving all my mods and saves to it helped. I don't really know why but it did. Also, I installed Twallan's Saved mod. I have it set so it prompts me to save every 20 minutes. I have never had the frozen saving screen when using that to save my game. And the good thing about this mod is that if the prompt pops up while you're in build mode it will let you save then too.

Hi everyone, I am back with good, no, great news cheer cheer cheer

It saved, my game actually saved happyfeet <----- me (earlier today) happy bunny

I had to rebuild my house though as I didnt save it, now I am not a builder so this was an epic task, but I done it and re-loaded my momma and her children into the house, got the toddler twins aged up to child and the baby aged to toddler. So now I have 1 teen, 3 children and a toddler. I thought you might like to see a pic or 2, first up the house, remember do not laugh I am not a builder :baloonheart:



and the family



Again I thank you all for every hint and tip they all worked a charm, mucho loves to each of you

luv u luv u luv u
