Hello,

Have you tried the following:

(1) Download the latest manual patch that updates your game to 1.57 and apply it: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v157-fix-manual-patch

(2) Download the latest Ultimate Fix (Download a new one even though you may have downloaded one): http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

(3) Drag and drop the content of the folder #crack from the Ultimate Fix 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 bought/downloaded and installed the base game via Origin)

Also, I suggest you go to the folder C:\Users\(your computer name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and delete the following:

Create-a-Sim Cache: CasPartCache.package
Build/Buy mode cache: compositorCache.package
Mod or custom content cache: scriptCache.package
New Sims and skin cache: simCompositorCache.package
Look for a folder that says Thumbnails. Delete anything inside of it.
Look for WorldCaches and delete anything inside of it.
Look for the folder CurrentGame.sims3 and delete everything inside.

Hello,

Most likely you have incompatible CC/Mods. Can you try the following (even if you have done that):

Go to The Sims 3 in your Documents folder:

Go to C:\Users\"username"\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3

Create-a-Sim Cache: CasPartCache.package
Build/Buy mode cache: compositorCache.package
Mod or custom content cache: scriptCache.package
New Sims and skin cache: simCompositorCache.package
Look for a folder that says Thumbnails. Delete anything inside of it.
Look for the folder WorldCaches and delete everything inside of it.

To delete your mods/CC that is in packages simply go to C:\Users\"username"\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and remove the folder "Mods".
