Same for me. I have lessened it by removing all mods but it is still happening, my time also stops when my Sims are stuck in interactions. It is not a game crash, I can eneter build mode and build I can click on things too but my Sim and time is just stuck. My PC exceeds the recommended requirements.

This started after installing the latest patch and Seasons

Hi @michaela981

your c drive is really full. You should move some files if possible. It's possible that the lack of memory affects things.

On which drive do you have the game and the user files installed ?

C Drive is the OS Drive. D Drive is an SSD which all other files are stored. Origin and its games. Steam and its games. Office etc etc It's the default location for everything on this PC.

OK. So that's at least something but windows still needs space for temp files. Did you check if you have any files you can delete/move to free up some extra space ?

In 1984 with my 40 MB hard drive I never thought I would say that, but 120 GB for a system drive is rather small.

120GB is more than enough for Windows 10 to be fair. And with automatic maintenance the OS does the Temp files are regularly deleted.

Given that the issue with Sims 4 only occured post-patch/expansion release this week I don't think the issue is Windows and where it's installed. But an issue with the AI or Expansion since I've noticed a few other bugs, like Tree decorations being invisible.

You currently only have 17 GB though.

 

 

Tagging as needs input for now to get more specs and info from other users

 

If you could also post a video, that would be helpful

Re: Issues with time/Clock (again)

Do you see time jumps back (especially on speed 3) as well or just freezing ? Do you play in a house or apartment ?
