Game Crashes when adding second Floor

Post by kcarey on Sat 08 Jun 2013, 19:53

I followed the instructions to the T, and haven't had too many problems playing. It crashed a few times, I lowered the resolution. It crashed a bit more and I attempted the change to DEP, the game crashed in again. It used to crash rather randomly. Right now, it crashes as I go to save after adding walls to my second floor of a house.

Is your graphic card up to date?

To the best of my knowledge, everything is as up to date as I can make it.

I'm guessing this is it:
Intel HD Graphics (Corei3)

Another integrated chip. Goodie.

A lot of crash related problems seem to have this in common: integrated GPU's. If I'm right about that the solution is simple: get a separate GPU.

I'm having this problem, too.

My game has never had a crashing issue until recently, even though I play on a laptop, and I think it's because I'm building a lot on an old save that's from before Seasons came out. Is this a new game/save file you're building on?

Check out the 'crashing after building thread'. I'm about to re-load my game to see if newer lots crash when I build or not.

First, I would like to ask you to open a new topic for that. This way it will be easier to track individual progress Wink.

And yes, I'm afraid that there seem to be HUGE problems with that family of graphics cards. Have a look at this here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_System_Requirements

The thing is, the problem was only happening when I went to save after adding a second floor onto this one specific house. I finally just moved her into a new house. I don't have any mods in play, just the games. Earlier, I'd had it crash once or twice, but after posting here I had the game running with no problems for a good 6 hours, no problems.

Hello there,

Even if the graphics card is not (fully) supported, it might be possible to make the situation "bearable" by e.g. installing the latest drivers - or moving into a smaller house and/or a smaller neighbourhood.

Kcarey, I suppose you moved into a smaller house, then ?

My graphics card isn't supported ether, yet the game runs fine. A good graphics card can run any game, most developers half-ass optimization and compatibility anyway.

So, does the game crash when adding a new floor or when saving? I didn't really get that part.

The game crashed when I saved the new floor add. Did the walls and it 'unexpectedly quit' on me. A friend had the same problem.

I did move them to a new house, bigger actually. It wasn't the floors that were the problem, it seems to be the building of them that is.
