Hello,

Maybe you could try defragmenting your hard-drive, and even completely shutdown your anti-virus before playing The Sims 3. For more general tips on that topic, see this here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-14-07-2013

I know your game doesn't "freeze to the desktop", but you can still give it a try, if you haven't done it.

Another possibility: can you save your sims family into the "bin" - in "edit town"-mode ? Then, make a new savegame (maybe in another town), put your sims into the new world, and play on for a while. For this purpose, you can also use the "Porter"-mod: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Porter

Let us know the result so that we can "investigate" more, then. Smile  Good luck !

If I'm going to follow the steps here:

1. Go to: (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\  
2. Backup (Read: copy to an other folder) the folder called "The Sims 3".
3. Now completely remove the "The Sims 3" folder from: (My) Documents\Electronic Arts\  
4. Start the game and see if it works now. If not, please continue with the other possible solutions from this page


What ddd
What will happen to my game if I used for example a custom content hair?

In this folder (The Sims 3), your "custom content" and mods are located. If you remove the folder or rename it, then you also "remove" all custom content, mods and save files. We do this in order to rule out problems related to these things. So if you rename or remove the folder - the game will not recognize the stuff anymore. Smile

The easiest method is that you just rename the folder (into anything you like) - and then start the game. Make a new savegame for now and test it a while.

Let us know how it went ! Smile

Hello, I renamed the folder and create a new game. It doesn't freeze anymore. What should I do? Sad


//EDIT

Hello, within 30 minutes of playing it's okay but after 30 minutes here comes the lag again.

I renamed The Sims 3 folder in My Document/Electronic Arts to 1 then tried to create a new saved game, then when I go back to that folder there's the folder that a renamed and another folder named The Sims 3. I don't know why The Sims 3 folder appeared.

That folder appears because the application cannot recognise your previous folder (renamed).

If you have tons of mods/packages, go download Delphy's Dashboard to check any mods'/CC's conflict.

You can use 50/50 method for the sims3packs. I know it's tedious, but at least it's a good method right?


I assume you have some mods. Do check if they are compatible with your game version (especially Nraas mods. Twallan keeps updating them even after 1.63, for example Overwatch).

Renaming the folder will remove all your CC and mods. I think you try reinstalling CC from EA first and then proceed to 50/50 method.

Deleting the folder will make you lose all your saves.

Before deleting, move the folder Saves to the new generated Sims 3 folder.

Also (if you want to), move the folder Library to the new generated Sims 3 folder if you want the sims that you have created.

What do you mean? Do you mean you have deleted the folder The Sims 3 in Electronic Arts but it doesn't work?

As stupid as it sounds, I suggest you reapply the manual patch and redownload and reapply the Ultimate Fix.

If you have downloaded Into The Future, the manual patch can be found in the folder Support/Updates in the torrent of Into The Future.

Hi, is it possible to uninstall the base game and reinstall it without uninstalling all the Ep's and stuffs?

//EDIT

Hello, It works all fine now. It freezes on the start then if you're playing for about 20 minutes the lag will be gone. Last question, is it okay to download cc's with sims3pack format even if I don't have mods?


Moderator edit: don't double-post, please. Use the "edit-button" on your post if you want to add something.
