build mode not working

Post by Sk8ErGuRl101 on Wed 29 May 2013, 19:05

I had every expansion except University up until yesterday. I got it and it worked fine but then when I went into build mode the building menu thing didnt come up. The little tabs just kinda flash. I dont know if this has something to do with university, aurora skies, or lucky palms (also got hose yesterday) so please help! I really wanna play!

Hello there,

Have you correctly applied the (latest) Ultimate fix ?

If that doesn't help, re-read this here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-29-09-2012
Epsecially #2 (DEP) and #3 (assigning more RAM to memory) could be useful. If you use the "4GB patch", though, you have to patch the TS3W.exe file in C:/Program files(x86)/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin (= the Sims 3 base game location).

Good luck for now!

Go to My documents/Electronic Arts and rename the folder "The Sims 3" (example: "The Sims 3_"). Now start the game; for now, you'll have to start a new savegame and your CC (including Aurora Skies & Lucky Palms) will be gone too. But just try a new savegame and see if the Build & Buy modes work.

If it does, we'll continue from there.

Nevermind! I figured it out, I needed to start the game with the TS3EP09 file.
