Sims 4 Crashes After a Bath or Shower

Post by wistfulprincess on Tue 09 Dec 2014, 05:46

Help

Hi. The first time I installed Sims 4 (which I got from you guys, so thank you!), I had no problem whatsoever in gameplay.

However, when I opened it again the next day, it crashes every 15 minutes or so (sometimes even as soon as the saved game loads), so I had to save every now and then, which is inconvenient and irritating. The only good thing about this is that Sims 4 saves much faster than Sims 3, where it takes forever to save and exit.

Anyhow, I try to keep my patience when this happens and I've found that the switch between being (pixelated) nude and being dressed after taking a bath or showering, is what causes the issue for my game. It's when my Sim is in a whirlwind-like animation that the game freezes and closes on me.  Why God.

If you have an answer to my headache, I would be soooo grateful. It's a pain to reload the same game 5 or more times in an hour. 

Thank you!  Smile

Hello wistfulprincess,


It could point to savegame corruption. Can you try using the option SAVE AS, and then choose a different (new) name for that save ? And then exit the game, and re-start Sims 4.

In the main menu, click on the "load game" option at the top right of the screen. You should see a savefile with the addition "AUTO". Do NOT choose that one. Instead choose the otehr save that does NOT have this "AUTO" - and this one should have the name of the save you just chose - when using "save as".

Good luck ! Smile
