Hello,


More generally: do you remember what the last thing was, that you changed about your game ? Did you just update it or did you install any mods/CC too ?

I assume you have a Windows OS ? (it's just because for the following file locations).

In Windows, go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and find a folder with the name "Mods". Now you rename that folder (example: "Mods_backup"). If you don't have such a folder, then (of course) skip that step. Wink

Also, in that file location, please delete the following things:


-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"



Start the game and see if that made any difference.

And: it might be possible that your graphics drivers are outdated. If that's the case, please make sure to update them.

That is pretty common on my side with my old laptop.
You should update your graphic card drivers...
