I know this slows things down but i'm not allowed to use team viewer (my parents said no) because it would void my warranty if anything happened while using the program.  is there anything else I can try other than uninstalling ? it took days last time I reinstalled because there are so many add-ons.

Hello,

That is okay if you don't want any Teamviewer session. Now please read the instructions very carefully:

(1) Uninstall the base game and all the expansions with Your Uninstaller Pro (which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org) with Super Mode (you can choose the Super Mode during uninstalling)

(2) Delete the folder C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

(2) Reinstall the base game with Daemon Tools Lite ONLY. (Be sure to extract the torrents with WinRAR ONLY)

(3) Apply the manual patch here.

(4) Reinstall all the expansions.

(5) Apply the manual patch again.

(6) Download the latest Ultimate Fix here.

(7) Drag and drop the content of #crack folder ONLY to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (OR C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin if you have purchased or downloaded The Sims 3 via Origin)

That's how I installed my game this time already. Is there any other way I we can fix this problem without uninstalling because I've already tried that reinstall method on a cc store mod free game and I still get the crashing.

Hello,

Are you sure you have uninstalled the game via the Uninstaller with Super Mode?

Would you be willing to try the game without sp/eps you don't regularly use or need to play the game? It may be too much for your computer. I got mine less than a year ago, and still can't run the game well with all the extra packs.

Hello,

Even if you set the limit higher, it won't work because The Sims 3 uses only a little RAM (approximately 2 GB RAM). And I can tell you crash log analyser is very inaccurate. 2momododo is right on this. Disabling in-game store does help a lot of people with "Max Memory Used" problem.

However, if you really want to do that, you can edit the file C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\Sims3.ini.



Simply change the number of this line:

Spoiler:
[ResourceSystem]
MemoryUsageLimit = 20000000

Hello,

This is only the upper limit of The Sims 3. Not exactly the amount of RAM The Sims 3 is using. Read this to find out more on how to increase the limit.

Hello,

To do that, I think you need to turn up "Draw Distance" in in-game graphic options.

Hello,

I am not sure actually. But 2 of them are possible (Visual effects and tree details).

Hello,

I don't think RAM upgrades gonna help. You know, The Sims 3 is a badly designed game. It can crash on high-end pcs too.
