I can't save my sims 3 game!

I have the sims 3 on my macbook and saving has never been a problem before but these last couple of days when I click save or save as, the saving sceen stays there forever like its frozen so I have to turn my computer off.  It would be awesome if someone could help me out thanks.

Re: I can't save my sims 3 game!

Can you try if you have this issue in all your save games or only in one ? Start a new one to see if it happens there too.



Good Luck and Happy Simming

I've had the exact same problem as well and it's starting to grate on my nerves a bit.  Any tips or advice on how to remedy this would be most helpful!

Re: I can't save my sims 3 game!

I play on a macook to and my game does this when I try to save.

What I do is that I let it be there for a while, and when I´m tired of looking at it I press "CMD+SHIFT" and it minimizes the game so that you get back to your screensaver.

Then I "force quit" and most of the times when I go back to play the game it has saved.

 

I recommend you start up your game and changes the hairstyle of a sim or just do a minor change in your active game and then try to use "CMD+SHIFT"

Is there a similar trick for a Windows-based computer?

Re: I can't save my sims 3 game!

I just had this same problem. I fixed it by deleting my cache files and reloading the game. There is a step by step on the SimsWiki.
