OMG. My game just crashed 4 times in about a 2 hour period. One from taking a “photo” to paint by reference. (I did submit a separate bug report for that.) The last 3 times have been all trying to travel my Sim home from the Casbah Art Gallery. She had a fun night, I try to travel her home. CRASH. Restart game, wait the 8 - 10 minutes to get back in. Try to travel her home again. CRASH. Restart the game, wait the 8 - 10 minutes to get back in. Try to travel her home yet again. CRASH. I’ve literally spent the last 30+ minutes staring at error screens and reloading screens. When is this issue going to be fixed?? It’s been know about for months, if not longer. Why do we hear nothing?? How is this still going on??? I’m so mad, frustrated and disappointed.

I’ve been experiencing the same issue (when I travel more than once.) It seems that a very small portion of the community is experiencing it. If only someone could gain notice to the issue. All EA cares about is pushing out new content rather than fixing the bugs. Have you reinstalled your game? I have yet to do so. I’ve rebuilt the data base though... still crashes.
I have reinstalled the game once already. I’ve rebuilt my database numerous times. My Sims is updated and my PS4 is updated. I’ve done everything they recommend, short of reinitializing my PS4. I’m not going to do that because I know from other users, like all the other things they tell you to try, it doesn’t help. :-(
I have the same issue. The most receny pack I installed was Vampires but things seemed ok after that, the issues started after the recent August game update. The game started crashing when switching modes but also randomly as well. I updated the Playstation software after noticing there was a file outstanding and hoped that would fix it but it's still happening, especially when going to manage worlds and sometimes opening the gallery etc. It's super frustrating and I can't figure out how to stop it. The game has occasionally crashed in the past but then been ok again, now this has become a consistent issue.

Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The game started to crash every time I entered build mode, CAS or brought up the loading screen when I updated the game to version 1.30
My game has been glitchy ever since the big patch in June that added fire fighters to the game however it was playable but since the latest 1.30 update my game is completely unplayable, my sims can no longer go to work (scientist) because the game crashes as it brings up the loading screen, it crashes whenever I enter CAS or travel through worlds and it also crashes whenever I come out of build mode, it will also occasionally crash when I haven’t entered build mode, CAS or the loading screen but it happens literally every time I bring up the loading screen which is making it extremely difficult to play as I cannot travel to find collection items, to go to work or to explore the game fully.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
