Should I Install Island Paradise?

Post by Nightdragonist on Tue 09 Jul 2013, 05:23

And from what i see on the forum, there's so many issues with Island Paradise. Especially with mods.
The problem is... I HAVEN'T INSTALL IT. So, should i install it now or should wait for an announcement for updates??
I have downloaded worlds+cc from this site. Mods from Nraas (DebugEnabler,Traveler,MasterController), and my sister downloaded some hairs from 3rd parties.

The answer i got for this problem is delete all your mods and stuff first and try if it works. If it not works, delete or rename The Sims 3 folder in My Documents>Electronic Arts to something else -and then open the game launcher so it will create new fresh files.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've search the forum. But i just want to make this clear.

As far as i can see, there's only one thread that post about this problem.


My computer specs :
Windows 7 32-bit
AMD Phenom II X4 925 2.8 Ghz
Nvidia GT630 4Gb
RAM 2Gb
V.Memory 2048 Mb


I'm getting this error everytime I play. I can't even save a little progress Facepalm .
How can i STOP this? This error started since Seasons came out. Before that, it never happened.
My friend told me this solution will work... But.. as i told you above, I will get this error no matter how long i play. Help Help

The best solution is probably add RAM and upgrade to 64-bit. But will it stop?


Gonna upgrade it ASAP

Hello,

At least the chances that it will stop are much higher. But yes, upgrading your OS is the best solution now.

If you can't do that, then the only real things that help with this 32-bit system are...

1) Don't play with your sim(s) in a big house (live in a smaller house).
2) Reduce the complexity of your neighbourhood (bulldoze any unnecessary lots and remove lots which are too big/custom lots).
3) Memory deletion; read my suggestions in this topic here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t11543-sims-3-error-code-12

Yes, it can be caused by incompatible mods/CC too, but while renaming or removing the folder "The Sims 3" may seem like a quick solution, it only delays the unavoidable thing: namely that you still have to check all your mods/CC (when putting them back in). So you should make sure beforehand that your stuff is compatible with newer updates; to avoid nasty surprises (and a lot of work) later on. Wink

//EDIT

I forgot to mention that you also have to reduce  your playing time, save often and exit the game afterwards to "relieve" the RAM. Then you can start the game again.

Hello,

You should upgrade your operating system then, if these solutions cannot help you.
