Please Help! Wont Load City. [SOLVED]

Post by TheGingernator on Wed Jan 22, 2014 1:35 am

Hello! Firstly let me say thank you for all of this!

I hope you can help, i run Windows Vista, and i have installed every expansion other than World Adventures (said i was in the wrong region Sad) and done everything as you have instructed on the post you make sure everyone reads,

Everything works perfectly until i try and load a city, then it will load until literally the last little bit of the loading bar is needed and it will just stop. However, the music, tips etc all continues as normal, it just wont load that final bit!

I have looked at other posts and tried disabling the interactive loading, tried opening it in windowed mode, and so on, however nothing will fix it.

Please help! Sad

Hello,

If you have any mods, please remove all of them for now. After you've done that, go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete the file scriptCache.package.

Re-start the game, and *normally* it should load again. But let us know if you need more help !


P.S. You also need to be a bit patient maybe; my game (big house with 8 sims in Isla Paradiso) takes ~4-5 minutes to load. Razz

The first time loading a town also takes a bit longer than normal. My game loads rather quickly until it gets to the end, then takes 5-10 minutes to load that last little bit. And that's without my mods or anything extra. It all depends on the computer and town though. 

How long are you letting it set before giving up on loading it?

Hey sorry for the late reply guys! Thanks for the help I did what was said and it worked! It felt like I'd been waiting for ages but this time I just did something else while I waited for it to load and it didn't actually take that long!

But thank you guys! Smile

Hello again,

What I forgot to mention was that if the loading bar "really" gets stuck, it's usually caused by outdated core mods, like e.g. NRAAS Overwatch/ErrorTrap/Register, etc.

Can we help you with anything else ?
