Crashing only when saving?

Post by Cealen on Wed 13 Jun 2018, 21:48

Hello. I haven't been on here in a while, but I got a new computer and re downloaded the torrent for The Sims 3. I've been enjoying playing it a lot but i've encountered this really frustrating problem. 

My game was working fine but since Sunday it's been crashing when I save. I first thought it was just a problem maybe with some objects so I used MC (Master Controller) to do a total object reset. Then I was able to save no problem so I continued on playing. Then Nraas Saver popped up 30 minutes later telling me to save, which I always do, and then this time it crashed to desktop with no "The Sims 3 has stopped working" popup even after being on the saving screen for ~5 mins. I kept on trying to save my game but the same thing always happens; I can save once but then when I save again my game dies. I then tested on my other saves and same problem still happening but sometimes I can get like 3 saves in before it crashes. Its very werid. I have no problems with crashing or anything outside of saving. 

I don't believe it's my cc, I've been playing with all my cc just fine before and then I installed this one thing and the crashing started, but I removed it and it's still crashing. 

I play with Sweetfx but i've been playing with it for a while too and no problems, and haven't changed it at all so don't think it's the source.

Does anyone have any idea on what I can do?? Just let me know if you want more information.

OK, what was "this one thing" that you installed? What patch level are you at? What patch level of the Nraas Saver are you using? What other mods have you installed/removed prior to/after installing "this one thing"?

Hello,


Sometimes a savegame file can become too large to save properly. Is this, by any chance, a neighbourhood that you've been playing for a long time? If it is, you can try the decrapify tool on the savegame (make a backup first, just to be safe), but you can only do that a couple of times.


You can also use Nraas Porter to pack up all of your sims, and move them to a new neighbourhood. That should definitely fix the problem for a long time, if the save error is related to a lage save file.
Porter keeps the relationships between families intact, as well as their careers and career progress. The only downside might possibly be, that their combined funds are divided between families, and they will be unpacked on random residential lots.

First off, sorry for late reply. It was this cc right here: https://simtanicos.tumblr.com/post/174352727180/buckleysims-s-clubs-3-d-eyelashes-look . I did not mention what it was exactly because it wasn't that important. It wasn't showing up right in game so that's why I removed it. And i'm on patch 1.67, and using [url=http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Saver Phase Six]http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Saver%20Phase%20Six[/url] . So I don't think it's something wrong with saver. And haven't installed a thing since this.

Tried this already, using save cleaner Sad. In the save file I first noticed this it's not a large save file, only like 2 sim weeks in. I thought maybe since I'm in universityin that game something was wrong with that so I tried my other save file (only a sim week in) and same problem

OK try this. Delete the scriptCache.package file from C:\Users\User_Name\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, then restart the game. Play for a few minutes and try saving.

If you still cannot save, backup and remove the nraas saver mod from your mods folder. Delete the scriptCache.package file and start a new game. Play a few minutes after creating/loading the new sim and then save the game. If the game saves you may need to redownload nraas saver phase six and reinstall it.

Alright, I already do the first part you suggested all the time with new mods. 

For the second part, I tried what you suggested and went on. It was saving pretty fine from the looks of it, I played for about an hour and had no issues. When I went an reinstalled saver (I downloaded it for a second time!) the crashes started again seemingly...maybe I just won't be able to run saver. Is it okay for me to unisntall saver and still access my old saves with it on or no? Or do you have any other suggestions?

What other mods are you using? If your using the right nraas saver for your patch level (Level 6 for patch levels 1.67 - 1.69) it should work unless you have another mod conflicting with it. You can also check out Nraas' wiki for troubleshooting tips, compatibility issues, etc.

Thank you for all your help, by the way Smile forgot to say so earlier.

Nraas-wise mods I'm using Master Controller (with integration and cheats), Story Progression (alongside relationship), Mover, Portrait Panel, Relationship Panel, Traveler, Overwatch, ErrorTrap, and Register.

My other mods are just stuff like adjusting how fast skills gain and stuff like that. Nothing that would conflict with Saver as I don't use Awesome. 

Ill look around and see if I can find anything on the wiki. There's nothing under Issues for Saver, but still maybe i'll find something.
