Product: The Sims 4

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? the newest patch, the june 3rd one
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all of them except, outdoor retreat, and only some stuff packs, moschino, bowling night, kids stuff, laundry day, romantic garden, tiny living, and vintage glamour, I don't have the rest.

What happens when the bug occurs? my game crashes when I open my main save
What do you expect to see? I expect to see the world map, then play with my sims.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. patch 188.8.131.520 i updated my game removed all broken mods and it still never opened up
I've had a lot of mods and cc, and none of it was game-breaking, so when my saves started to crash, I wasn't concerned because I can remove my mods, and I did, yet my game still crashes.
@buski1108 @kieralemons and @afermo1 I've merged the thread you posted in into the master thread for this issue. Please keep an eye on it for updates. In the interim, don't delete your saves, just set them aside and play a different save for now.
Feel free to click Me Too on the first post as well.
After reading about all these problems, I will not dare get this patch, no matter how much I was looking forward to it.
Sorry EA, but one doesn't expect their games to have so many problems.
It would be great if we could get a "reverse from latest patch" option until this is solved, so that we can still play the game.
@ashleyiiii The only other time something has happened to save files was November 2018 when Father Winter's children disappeared. You may be remembering issues that were actually due to broken mods.

@LaurenVillone This is the master thread. Your post was merged
Merged several threads into this one
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
After today's update I haven't been able to start up one of my save files.
Whenever I start it up the entire game crashes after being in the loading screen for a few seconds. Other save files work just fine.
I've got no clue if or how I can fix this so I hope someone can help me out.
I've got no mods installed and have all packs, I'm on a windows computer.
Hi, for some reason, I can only 'reply' to a comment rather than create a post - so apologies for linking this to your comment.
I am new to the forum, as everyone else I have similar issues since the new update.
My only question is: How will I know when this is resolved? I don't tend to use this forum at all (I only came on to troubleshoot my issue and stumbled across this page)
I'm hoping, obviously, that there is a 'new' update available to us all that corrects this issue, but if that isn't the case and some instructions are provided on how to fix this error - how will I be informed?
