If you have seasons then you have to wait for the new patch

Hello,

Mods and Custom Content are extra stuff you add to your gameplay.
Usually Mods can be found here, if you have any: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods

Hello,

No, you don't have to delete them, just disable them for now. If they are packages, they're in the folder Admin mentioned. If they're sims3pack, their contents are in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\DCBackup. Just Backup and remove both folders temporarily until you can confirm that they are, or aren't the problem.

However, if your problem started recently, can you say whether that was before or after you updated to patch 1.42 (if you did)? I'm asking because I was doing research yesterday for a problem I was experiencing and it turns out that patch 1.42 has a lot of loose end that were tied up with Seasons. Not that well I might add, but you may have to install Seasons and/or wait for the next patch before this issue goes away.

Well, with Seasons installed, we know your game is at 1.42 right now. But for future reference on how to check your base game version, you open up the launcher, and hover over the base game icon, in the bottom left corner. The little box that pops up will tell you what patch level you're using. Smile
