Re: Sims "freeze", reset doesn't work.

★★★ Newbie
@quixoticies I am having the same issues.

My sim just stands there or sits there doing nothing for sim hours and hours. After almost every task my sim actually does complete, he would freeze for hours and hours. Resetting and fixing the game doesn't work.

This started happening after I purchased and downloaded one of the packs (not sure which pack.)

It's really making the game unplayable..

Mine started after I purchased and downloaded Nifty Knitting, actually. Terrible way to get people to buy more packs Frown

Same as me I had to disable the pack I had 3 Sims stuck outside the showers in the oasis gym and freezing in front of sinks.

I have my Origins account on both a Predator Gaming Laptop and a Desktop Windows Gaming PC, it occurs on both. I have tried deleting all game files and Origin and reloading each. Also tired Repairing game files. Never used any Mod's on either computer. It is only the character freezing, I can interact with game and ask sim to do things, but they do not move.

@leooftheyear I finally got around to test your save and i can see the freezing in that household. I switched to another and the game seemed fine then.

It might have to do with the cats. Can you maybe give them up for adoption for testing purposes to see if you have less freezing (on a backup). Just for science.

 

There's a thread on that here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-CD-Simulation-Lag-with-Pets/m-p/8201357

Nope, this household is one single sim unmodded. And on my laptop household, it’s one sim and one pet. In both situations only the humanoid sim freezes.

I removed the cats from both files and it still froze, I have a cat in a different save and it doesn't have the same issues. Any other suggestions?

@cyndiratoms171 You are on PC right ? Cause you put console for the mod question. Just wanting to make sure.

Re: Sims Frozen

@Leooftheyear001 I've tested another household in the game and there was no freezing there so maybe it's some routing issue.

I also noticed it happening when one Sim was trying to take a shower so maybe replace the two showers you have ?

Do you see it in other households in that save as well ?
