There's a million reasons why this is happening. You might want to try turning down your graphics settings. I had to turn off mirror reflections.

It shouldn't be the sound and it doesn't have to be the graphics, it's just a possibility and easy to check.

Have you made any changes recently, like a new mod, or patch?

I find that it happens if you click things very quickly, or change the speed too quickly. Or if your PC is overheating. It really coulde be anything.

Just remember to save often.

Mine started crashing when i got Sims3 Showtime, and downloaded the free "Ultimate Venue" Currently uninstalling it. Hoping that will fix my problem.

Anything you download from the exchange can possibly have bad cc installed along with it, even if the uploader doesn't use cc.

Bad cc hides in the Exchange coding, and randomly attaches itself to downloads. I use the Custard program by Delphy to scan every single download from the ex before I install it.

Also, simporting with someone who has cc on their sim can get bad cc in your game. This was supposed to be fixed in a patch, but it's still being reported.

I can play fine, but I'm currently crashing everytime I go into CAS, and I've simported, so I'm thinking I picked something up along the way.


You can uninstall (NOT delete) anything you've recently put in via the launcher, and it should pull out any content installed with it. (Uninstall from your "Installed Content" tab first, then your "Downloads" tab last.)

Check your launcher - much of the bad cc will show up there.

Also T$R is famous for passing on bad cc & bugs, so if you have anything from there, that's a good place to start looking.

Good luck!
