Hello,

Do you get a specific error when you try to save?

Hello,

Try it without your new content, it could be there's a conflict.

I had this problem with my game on my old computer, whenever I would try to build ANYTHING, then save, it'd just turn itself off. So, are you trying to build anything before this happens?

I recently installed all of the Sims 3 games, expansions, and stuff packs
available from your site. I transferred over my Legacy save file from
my old computer to my new one. This problem, however, was occurring
before I transferred my files. My problem originally started when I
tried to build a foundation for my new house. After laying down the
foundation, I attempted to save. During the save process, I would
receive an error message stating that "The Sims 3 Has Stopped
Functioning. Windows Is Checking for a Solution." Then, the Sims 3 would
close out. This is only happening while saving and there are no issues
during gameplay.



After several attempts, I gave up and I
attempted to work around the problem. After a while, I tested the issue
and the problem did not occur. So, I went ahead and tore my house down
in order to build a new one. However, I have now isolated the problem
to me adding a second floor to my home, or a roof onto my first floor.
After adding one or the other, the game crashes as described above
during saving. I am aware this may be an EA issue, but if you guys have a
fix, I'd greatly appreciate it!

I have already tried running my
game without Mods or CC. I have also tried different towns and families.
The issue still occurs when I try to save.

I am running Windows 8 64-bit. Any other info you need, I'd be more than happy to provide.

Please help! Thank you!
I have also tried the Ultimate Fix, which did nothing to help this specific issue.
