Have you tried all the stuff here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Game-Crashes-CTD/td-p/656/ ?

  • What is your operating system
  • At what point does your game crash ? Any regularities ?
  • How long can you usually play ?
  • Which EP/SPs do you have installed ?
  • Are you using custom content and mods in your game ?
  • It's also good to include your DxDiag: https://help.ea.com/article/how-to-gather-dxdiag-information

I have also been having crashing issues. After some time of play, the game crashes. I've gotten it the habbit of saving every-so-often so as to save what little progress I can until it decides to crash again.

 

There is nothing I can find to be wrong with my computer, it is only about a year old and has plenty of graphic space. I'm only having trouble with the Sims game; even Spore (another EA game) works fine. (These are the only games I have on my computer plus Steam)

If this is about Spore, it's best to post in the Spore forum.

 

If it's about Sims, it's best if you made your own thread, posting as much info as possible

Here's some guidelines: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/READ-FIRST-Help-us-Helpers-to-Help-you/td-p/255562/
