The Sims 3 Has Stopped Running!

Post by LunaDreams on Thu 17 Sep 2015, 12:30

Hello,

It's me again, sorry for bothering everyone. You see I love the Sims 3 and I was going to make a Lets Play, I was really keen to video it and all until I test run it to see if it worked. Of course it worked, but after I created a sim and a pet, I was halfway through the sims lifetime points when the game crashed, literally. It just said The Sims 3 Has Stopped Working and Is Trying To Find A Solution.

I've dealt with some problems like this in the past but me being a total  Noob I forgot how too.

I was currently downloading World Adventures and I've already got the expansions: Generations, Island Paradise, Late Night, Pets, Seasons, Supernatural, University Life.

Dealing a few problems with mods, I accidentally pasted recource.cfg in the documents folder and I deleted it. I wondered if I deleted an important source by mistake. I downloaded the Error Trap mod but then deleted it again seeing if it was the problem. Here are my mods: 

UpgradeTimes30min
S-ClubSkin
Overwatch
MastercontrollerCheatsPackage
MasterController
nointro
nobuildsparkles
modelingposepack
Lolashoes
lolashoesV1
lifetimerewards0.05x
poseplayer
skysimsretexture

thats all! I hope one of you will be able to help me out.  Crying or Very sad

//EDIT\\

Ok, so after I installed World Adventures and applied it's crack I tested it on a sim and it worked fine for the past 10 minutes. I'm really confused right now.

Hello,

Crashes can and will happen at random in The Sims 3, there's not always a specific cause for this. However, you can work through this list if it happens often.

The file resource.cfg is needed to make mods/packages work, so it's not that big a deal for your game, it may mean that your mods no longer work though, if it is no longer present in the mods folder.

Thanks, that was a big help to me. It seemed to be working fine after I installed World Adventures, Ambitions and applied their cracks. Just to be safe I followed the instructions and added the folders to my DEP. I was so worried on having to follow the other instructions and uninstall the game completely and spend 3 days installing it all over again!  Pikachu 

Now I can go on with my Lets Play, anyway the mods seem to be working correctly as I assume the resource.cfg does not need to be in The Sims 3 Documents Folder but only in the Mod Folder. I'm not really sure if it's the pets that is causing the problem.

Thanks again!  cheers

Sorry again, after I installed Showtime I got it to work for like 2 hours, then I exited then started all over again, for like 10 minutes it was working until the problem came up again. I installed a few mod cc's and the cc content on the launcher. I don't think it's the cc's on the launcher but I'm not too sure about the mod cc's. Just to be safe I uninstalled them, I mainly think it's the mods because since I applied the cracks all over again it was working fine until I installed the mods.  No
