PostSubject: game crashes in create a sim   23/1/2012, 04:34

Please help me when I go to change my sims outfit my game crashes I can change her appearance, name etc but not her clothes. All my cc is clean, my mods are up to date, the only custom sims I have in my game are from people/sources I trust. I have pulled out all my saves and all my cc but nothing seems to stop it crashing.

have you checked you cpu useage ??

i myself also had crash problems but in a different way. mine was crashing wile building a house. so what i did was.

1. save folders. Saved Sims, Mods, Export Folder with all my houses and Familys in it.

2. i then deleted the, The Sims 3 folder.

3. restarted my p.c

4. started my game as normal, then quite and save. by doing this it self builds all the folders again.

5. once you have done all the above. put your mods folder back in. and then all the sims3packs in the export folder put in the download folder.

6. open your launcher and install all your houses, familys ect. and now my game is fine. but you should only this as a last measure. although i do this quite a lot. it's also a good idea if you have a external harddrive with copys of all you downloaded cc on it.

Basically what I have done is cleaned up my mods, cleaned up my cc, pulled everything out one at a time to try and catch what's causing it. My CPU usage is between 1 and 50% my computer can easily run the games. It's 11.41pm I've been at this all day so I'm off to bed. I'll keep trying tomorrow if I can get on the pc as I'm currently on my phone.

Thanks for the tips I will make sure to check them out better tomorrow when they aren't as small :)

hey hun

I went looking for a fix for this and came across a few simmers who have had the same problem, 2 out of the 3 found the problem started after pets was installed, is this the same as you? if so this is what they done, first they uninstalled pets and generations, they then re-installed pets first then generations, something to do with a missing update.

Another simmer just completely un-installed pets and everything works
Someone else un-installed everything and re-installed one day at a time to make sure all updates where complete
And one more un-installed all games including base and re-installed doing the updates manually until all games and patches where complete, they then installed their mods one at a time to see where the problem was, they also started from scratch with their cc collection and ran everything through the tsr rig fix before installing and they only installed 10 items at a time,opened up their game and tested it for 30mins each time until they were satisfied it wasnt going to crash.

So far all of the above have worked for the individual that tried it.

hmmm I would try one mod at a time to see what happens and make sure you check they are all updated - our tech expert isla keeps everything updated so if in doubt you can pm her to see what she suggests.

fingers crossed hun bluelov
