Sims 3 Loading bar stuck at the very end when trying to enter neighborhood

Post by Rochelle on Sat 04 Feb 2017, 21:17

Hi, iv been dealing with this problem for alot of hours now Facepalm,

I installed the sims 3 complete collection today and i followed all of the instructions on the installation guide, when i finished i ran the game everything was fine up until i got to picking a neighborhood, the loading bar gets stuck right at the end with the music off, i had this same problem witha different torrent yesterday and i spent 8 hours trying to fix it but got no where, i thought it may have been a problem with the torrent id downloaded so i downloaded the one from here but im still stuck on the same problem, iv searched pages and pages of google and nothing has helped Facepalm

Hello and welcome to the Forum @Rochelle,

You could try de-activating these "interactive loading screens", in your game menu. Also try going under Documents\Electronic Arts\ and change the folder name of "The Sims 3", into anything else. Then re-start the game again.

That's very good advice, I've been experiencing some crashes upon loading the game, or the loading bar getting stuck with these interactive loading screens enabled. Loading a neighbourhood for the first time can also take a long time!
