Very Strange Custom Content Issue

Post by CheyJenkins on Tue 18 Feb 2014, 06:41

I've been having this problem for months and feel like I've tried everything

Once I add a bunch of custom content to my game, it stops working. So I begin to weed out my cc, I have folders for each type of cc (hair, clothing, makeup, mods etc). So I start removing some from a folder to see if that helps. Suddenly, my game works again. So I add in a few more to see which one specifically was ruining my game, after putting them all back for some reason the game works again. I then move onto putting another one of my folders back in..then the game stops working. So I weed them out again, game starts working, put them back, continues to work, move to new folder, stops working again

I don't understand why this keeps happening? It doesn't seem as though one piece of cc is ruining my game, it's like my game just starts and stops at random. Can someone help me? I would really love to play the sims after months away

Hello,

Crashings can have many reasons...


Now, have a look at this here and do all steps: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-7-01-2014


If your Windows is a 64-bit version, then focus on step #3 in particular. Download the "4 GB patch" from here. After downloading, double-click on that 4 GB patch and in the next prompt, choose the TS3W.exe in your base game location. Usually, that's C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Note that this method will not work if your Windows is a 32-bit version and/or if your computer has less than 4 GB of RAM installed.


Then go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete all contents inside the Currentgame.sims3 folder. Also, in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, delete the following stuff:



-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"



Next, turn off your anti-virus program completely before playing The Sims 3. And now re-start the game and play on.

If you need to filter your custom content again, try putting things back one-by-one. This is usually time-consuming, but also the safest method of filtering stuff. Good luck for now !


P.S. Please don't choose "black" as a font color on this forum anymore. It just doesn't work well with the dark forum background. Wink
