Sims 3 Won't Save and Quit

Over the past few days I have not been able to save and close out of my game. I select the save a quit option and then the saving icon comes up, but that's it. The only way for me to actually quit the game is to force the shut down which means my game does not save. I installed the University extension pack recently but I had been able to save and quit since I downloaded that as well. Any ideas?

Re: Sims 3 Won't Save and Quit

I've heard of others having the same problem.  Have you tried using "Save AS" instead of "Save and Quit."  What you would do is click Save As and once it's saved, click exit.  When it asks if you want to save then, you can click no since you just finished saving beforehand.

Try to follow steps from https://help.ea.com/ca/article/sims-3-world-adventures-error-12-13-or-16.

 

It should resolve your issue but follow all steps and disable your CC and mods before playing.

How many folders to you have in your savegames folder ? Seems you can't use save as if you have a lot of them.



Good Luck and Happy Simming
