Game crashing when placing stairs. [SOLVED]

Post by Ardra Allen on Mon 30 Apr 2012, 07:13

I have valid copies of sims through LN.. I have cracked pets, generations, showtime, townlife, outdoor living.
I am trying to build a new house.. when I first started building this house the first set of stairs went down fine.. the game crashed randomly a few times.. but now the crashes always seem to be when I start to place steps on the porch.

PS. what it does is it first freezes.. only way to get back to the desktop is to hit control+alt+delete and as soon as task manager opens and I can see my desktop again.. I see a little window saying " a problem has caused the program(sims3) to stop working properly, windows will shut down the program and notify you if a solution is found" ( or something like that)

Mod edit: Topic moved to the right section.

Hello,

You're not getting an unofficial game modification error are you? If you are, you may have a crack that is incompatible with your game version. That will cause semi-random game crashes.
Are these stairs cc?

nope. not getting that.


edit: I was in the process of going through the list of "fixes" from here http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-10-01-2012 and when I ran a clean game... no mods..no cc.. no saves... everything was fine
I added in the world I was playing and my save game.. still no mods..no cc.. as soon as I selected a section of stairs.. it crashed. lol so I THINK it has something to do with that save file.. or that world.

edit again: the world and the included save from the creator.. no problems.. so therefor.. it must be a corrupted save file?

Hello,

This has me baffled lol. And there's nothing I can find.
I would try this: Go into edit town mode and copy your lot to the bin, now bulldoze the lot, and place your house back.
if there are sims on the lot, you'll have to evict them to the clipboard first to preserve their neighbourhood relationships.

so it might not be the whole save file? could just be the lot? I didn't think of that.

well now.. that didn't work LOL back to my other theory.... but first.. IM going to try the lot on the other save.. the one from the creator..

it seems to be working fine now with the exception of a little lag. I even have all my mods and CC back in. I just had a bad save file apparently...
