Create a Household won't work.[SOLVED]

Post by paudjs on Sat 20 Apr 2013, 06:28

My create a household wont open. It just loads and loads and loads. Normally, when I go to open it, it loads right away. I have restarted the Sims numerous times and I had to close the Sims using the task manager. I recently installed some CC and I think it has something to do with that. But how do i figure out that it's a bad CC? I have a lot of expansion and stuff packs so I don't want to re-install it all again. Is there anything I can do? Help

Your CC (custom content) can make game run slow or tottaly freeze. Try uninstalling every CustomContent via Launcher:

1.Open Launcher
2.Go to "Installed Content" tab.
3.Click on "Select All"
4.Click on "Uninstall"

NOTE: This method will not delete CC, it will just remove it from game. If you want it back after uninstalling, go to "Downloads" tab (in Launcher), select "Select All" and click install.

If this doesn't help, try renaming "The Sims 3" folder in C:\Users\YouUserName\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\
Rename it to anything you want

NOTE: "The Sims 3" folder includes all CC. If you rename it and start game, you will not see any of installed CC. After renaming, game will create new "The Sims 3" folder. If renaming method doesn't work, delete new "The Sims 3" folder and rename (already renamed) old folder to original name (The Sims 3)

If any of these methods doesn't work, try re-installing the game, or complete cleaning your registry files.

thank you so much! I tried to do all of that but the only thing that worked is the renaming of the sims folder. Smile and I think the bad cc is a sim i have downloaded. I used CC magic to re install all the CCs. hihi. Thanksssss! Everything's working fine right now. Smile Sorry for all the questions. Noob
