Try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

For me it was these two mods:

- Cinema 1.4 (Reduced Sims)

- Cinema 1.2

I had the same problem, and I found that taking out the Cinema mod removed this problem.

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

I had the exact same issue, I had to section all of my custom content into four major groups. Whenever I put a certain group in (one by one) and whenever the bug came back, I knew it was custom content within that folder corrupting my game.
