Re: Game crashing after December update on PS4

@manolobeach if you haven't yet uninstalled and reinstalled the game, you can try that. You may have a corrupted file in your game that needs to be fixed.

Thank you! I’ve wanted to avoid that because so many people have said that uninstalling and reinstalling hasn’t helped with crashing problems...I have no choice but to try it as the last resort 😔...I wonder if anyone has tried an external hard drive and if it helped or if switching to PS4 pro would help. It would make no sense to even get Discover University if I can’t travel or play more then  15 minutes.

Hi, I'm wondering if your solution might help my own posted. If you have done the uninstall solution, did it delete any packs you already have too? I'm worried if I try this I'll lose all my packs too.

Re: Game crashing after December update on PS4

@manolobeach  I have a regular PS4 but I do have a new hard drive. I have only experienced crashes every now and then, and usually a console shut down and restart stops most issues. 

 

Does the crashing occur on a new save? If it does then try reinstalling the game, but it if doesn't happen on a new save, you may just have a corrupted save file.

Since a couple of days ago - I think since the last update - my game is not loading as quick as it just to do. Also I can travel without crashing but it takes way longer than before the update. My game “crashes” way more often, so I feel you. I do hope they fix it soon because it is getting really annoying to play rn. *pls do not mind my English, it isn’t that good, but i’m doing the best I can.

Yep...still occurs in new saves and I even tried an old save from March when I had no crashing issues and it still crashes. I’m holding off on the reinstall cause I don’t want to lose my sims/progress and have not been able to save to the PS4 cloud cause it will take hours with my connection So I’m trying to figure that out...and seeing other people trying and failing to stop crashing after a reinstall scares me tbh. I noticed that the after the update, the crashing is immediate when exiting build/buy and after taking pictures. I’m able to play for a while with just the travel crashing if I don’t  take pictures or go into build/buy when playing with a household.

@manolobeach  on PS4 you can back up your saves to USB.
