@Cvanrijn @cokonuut I merged your posts in here. It's probably all the same and related to the current crashing issues.

@Cvanrijn My game also just stopped midgame when traveling to work. The game is unplayable after this update. When is the fix coming?

When I try to play my favourite save, I load the family and after just few seconds/minutes the time freezes and I m also unable to change from controlling current sim to another. I also can t save the game. But I can more around the lot so the game is not freezed totaly. Also, some animations still continues, e.g. falling snow, event when the time, controlling and sims are frozen. I also can t save the game - it does not crash just takes hours without any progress. I tried to delete cache, repair and reinstall the game so far.

CLOCK STOPS and SIMS WON'T AGE UP WHEN BLOWING OUT CAKE

★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I have holiday stuff, patio stuff and Weather expansion pack.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I added the saved file to look at. PLEASE HELP
What happens when the bug occurs? I start playing the game and 5min or so in the game the clock stops going and my sims are still "moving", but are stuck where they are. I can't click on anything or switch sims...NOTHING. I never had this problem until the recently when my Sims 4 game was updated. Also, when I try to age my sims up to blow out the candles my sim will blow the candles out and WON'T age up but will just be transported outside or in another part of the house without aging up. I have to have them blow out the candles so many times before it will finally trigger it to work. Please help. These problems have made it frustrating to play. I appreciate the help. Thank you.
What do you expect to see? I expect my sims to move and time not to stop and my sims to age up when they blow out the candles....but it doesn't.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.

Re: GAME STALLS WITH NEW UPDATE

I got the same bug

But play for a while with a new sim or an existing normal sim
After that, playing with the sim in question solved the following issues

 

・ Everyone is sleeping, but cannot speed up
・ Action control
・ Abnormal save
・ Sim freeze

 

Possibility of temporary solution
Not solved in all environments

I share that I solved it this way

@cbuljung I'm guessing it's the issue EA is aware of. There's not much I can do currently.
Try if audio suggestions helps with the lags: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-PC/CURRENT-ISSUE-Game-Crashes-after-November-2020-Patch/t...
