[PS4] Crashing During Travel, Save the Game, Exiting CAS/Build Mode Patch 1.37

[ Edited ]

A now patched bug was introduced with Seasons in November 2020, please make sure you aren't affected by this older issue first [Fixed][PS4] Sims 4 Freezing/Random Crashing Endless Loading.

For All other issues please see this thread [Read First][Current Issues] Game Issues or Crashes

 

These crashes are not reproducible crashes, they happen without warning and at different times during gameplay. The issue is a memory issue that was patched for PS but after adding a few more packs and patches it seems to be occurring again. Please share your saves as requested here: Save Request Post 

 

This issue is most common with:

  • Original PlayStation Consoles
  • Owning a lot of packs
  • Very old Saves
  • Saves with lots of played households
  • Lots of items in builds, including the use of lots of different packs in builds
  • Lots of Sims in relationship panels of played sims because of lack of game relationship culling (Think friend of the world on a sim without aging on, etc.)
  • The use of large lots (50x50, 64x64)

Deleting everything from sim and household inventories for all played sims may help with the crashing.

 

Saving your played sims and households/houses to the library and placing them down in a new save may help with the crashing.

 

A help thread with more ideas that may help to reduce crashing is here Autonomy and Simulation Lag 

 

These crashes can happen randomly, and are not reproducible. Please always submit a video, a note and a crash report when the game crashes using the PS4 Report Tool on your console.

 

If the crash is specific, you can reproduce it, or it comes with a specific error code like 102, 122, 134, etc (CE-34878-0 is not a specific error code) please post a bug report in the bug forums.


The following is general troubleshooting for the PS4.

 

1. Turn off Your system completely, let it sit for a few minutes and power it back on. 

 

2. Make sure your game is up to date. 

Spoiler
  • Go to the PlayStation home screen. 
  • Highlight the game you want to update and press the Options button on your controller.
  • Select "Check For Update" and install any updates that are available.
  • Reboot your PlayStation 4.

3. Make sure your Console system software is up to date

Spoiler
  • Select Settings at the top of the PlayStation home screen.
  • Choose "System Software Update" and allow any system updates to install.
  • Reboot your PlayStation 4.

4. Uninstall and Reinstall the Game. 

Spoiler

Go to Settings > Application Saved Data Management > Saved Data in System Storage > Delete.

Select a game or application.

Set check marks beside the data you wish to delete or Select All.

Select Delete > then OK to confirm your decision.

Re: Packs are causing game to crash

Hey all,

 

This issue was resolved in Patch 1.70.

 

Please be sure to fully close and update your game- if you're still having crashing issues once your game is fully updated, please create a new thread here so we can investigate further.

@mumofharry They've added two packs since the last memory patch for PS4. It's entirely possible that the issue is present again on PS4.

@Mi_chiamo_Saul Can you try moving them to a smaller lot to see if the crash still happens?

Re: [PS] Crashing During Travel, Save the Game, Exiting CAS/Build Mode Patch 1.3

★ Guide
@PoptartJuniper I'm unsure but I think I can reproduce this crash in my game. I load a 20x30 lot on the Isle in Windenburg that has 300+kb home on it with I think every pack used & as soon as I try to enter & exit Build/Buy I appear to have a crash. Sometimes the crash is on the enter BB sometimes the crash on the exit. But the crash is inevitable.

I'm currently turning my PS4 off & doing a hard restart of the console & rebuilding the database. I have a PS4 Pro but could test on 3 other consoles if I had to.

Do any Sim Guru's want me to upload my save for them to see?

Should I be making a bug report?
