Ok move the mods folder to the desktop then start the game and see what happens, if it crashes again then it might not be a mod issue, if like I suspect that it will work fine then you need to check your mods are all up to date, a lot of common mods are the NRASS mods which need updating for 1.55,

Mmm ok strange

Try moving the wholde Sims 3 folder over or rename it and then start the game, if again it don't work then simply remove the new one that is auto crated and rename that folder you renamed back again, let us know how you get on

Hello,

Please have a look at this here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3330-an-alternative-approach-to-managing-store-and-custom-contentupdated-the-sims-3

For this you have to google for a tool called "CCMagic"; this tool can help you install your ".sims3packs".

Good luck!

OK, then. While I can't directly tell you which of your .sims3packs is causing this, you might consider this: if you downloaded "store items", then this shouldn't cause any trouble. However, if you download "other things" (a.k.a sims3packs which were NOT made by EA), then you might get problems.

The thing that "turned your sims into centaurs" was most likely what is called "Bad custom content", and again, I can't tell which file is causing this.

You can recognise store items by their file name: (Name of store stuff)/(month of release)/(year of release).

If you are not sure, which of your files causes trouble, then you should only install the store stuff - and leave out everything else. Or you might install the "dubious" files one by one - and start the game every time you install an item.

And if you then see that you have any problems, then take out the item you previously installed.
