Sims 3 Crashes in CAS

Post by Trixar232 on Sun 04 May 2014, 02:19

So about a week ago my I tried updating to 1.67 and download Into the Future but I messed up somewhere along the way and one problem caused another and long story short I completely uninstalled then reinstalled the game and almost all the expansion packs (all except world adventures and outdoor living stuff). It worked fine for a while but ran into a few problems which this forum helped me get through, but as soon as everything seemed to work fine I've run into a problem I can't seem to find a solution to. Every time I go to create a family I get about 20 minutes in and the game crashes and I get a message saying "Sims 3 has stopped responding" where I have no choice but to close the program. I have no clue what to do now. I've been trying to fix this since yesterday. The game also crashed after about an hour when I tried building a house first.. Plese help! Help  :newfag:

Hello and sorry for the late reply,


To make sure: have another look at this here and (re-)do the steps from #2 to #4:


http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Now, even if you say you did that already, have another  look at this other topic here and re-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 AND if your computer has 4 GB of RAM or more, 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. Wait for the message "executable successfully patched" and close the 4 GB patch.

Note that this method will not work if your Windows is a 32-bit version and/or if your computer has fewer  than 4 GB of RAM. After doing that, go on with the rest of the steps. These instructions should be pretty self-explanatory.

Now 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"


Re-start the game then and see if anything improved. You may even turn off your anti-virus program completely before playing The Sims 3.
Good luck !
