Sims 3 Crashing. [SOLVED]

Post by kittehkits on Thu Oct 10, 2013 11:54 am

So recently after facing some problems installing sims 3 it appears theres no end to the problems. the games loads fine on my mac, i can load up a neighbourhood and get as far as CAS and thats where it crashes. game play also results in the same issue, i basically can't even play it for more than 5 minutes Sad I've lowered the graphics settings to see if that would help, then since i've done that the game now just freezes on the loading screen O_o a search shows that this is a common issue for mac users due to the game not being native to mac but so far no fixes or solutions. Has anyone managed to fix this? or at least get the game to the point of at least being able to play for more than 5 minutes?

Hello!

To enable me to help you more efficiently, please answer the following questions:

1) While trying to install the game, did you perhaps re-install it at least once?

2) How long have you had your mac? 

3) How much memory to you have left in your mac?

4) Have you ever defragmented your mac?

Yes multiple times, I've used cleanmymac 2 to clear up the left over files for a clean install, and gone through the library to delete anything else. I've only had my mac for about 2 weeks 

Theres about 650gb left from a 750gb hard disk. I haven't defragmented it, wouldn't know how to tbh

Hey there,

Your mac is pretty fresh and new so it shouldn't be a system problem. In any case to answer your first post, I can play Sims 3 on my mac for hours without any issues. And I am only running on 10.6.8 Razz So we should still be able to tackle the issue somehow.

I would like you to try this:

Navigate to Finder>Documents
Delete this folder : Electronic Arts

* This will remove any saves you have. But seeing as you have not really had the chance to play much I believe it is fine? Razz Otherwise you can back up the folder in another place other than Documents before proceeding Smile

Do let us know the outcome Smile

I've removed the folder and so far I've managed to successfully get through CAS, load a house and started to play it Very Happy . So its probably my CC WhatDidUJustCallMe? I've removed my mods a while ago, so its just hair and clothes left and I can't imagine why they would cause a problem O_o

Thanks Smile

Oh! You had CC and Mods? I can't believe I forgot to ask you about that! Must have been confused within topics.

Well, enjoy your game!! Wink

Anything else we can help you with? Very Happy

Sorry should have mentioned that but i didn't think just hair and clothes would cause any problems. Its just store stuff i have now, and the only mod i had was NRaas story progression, which used to cause problems on my pc tbh so i got rid.

Pretty much it now ^_^ although i'm expecting it to break on me now

I'm sure it will be fine! Well if the cc and mods are incompatible they will cause problems Razz

Happy simming and don't hestitate to ask again if you have problems!

Problem solved, topic closed. Wink
