Cannot save because "Game Loading is in progress"

★★★★ Novice

Hello! I'm hoping someone can help me. I got my sims married, was offered the option to merge the household and when it came back to Live Mode my Sim (and pet) was stuck on the wedding venue. I updated my game today and I do use CC and MCCC is my only script mod. When I try to send her home nothing happens and when I try to travel, switch control to the sim that's not stuck on the lot or save the options are not available, a message says "Game Loading is in progress". I was able to bring another pet from the household to the wedding lot but it could not go back.

 

I hope someone can help me to rescue this game since I had days and days of progress or let me know if this is a recurrent thing that has happened to someone before. Thank you in advance!

Hi @EllaFritzgerald

 

are you currently stuck at this state or does it re-occur when you reload the save ?

 

If it's the later, have you tried this without custom content and mods ?

No, I'm still stuck on the lot, I'm considering giving up tho Frown and keeping an eye on this becoming a recurrent problem. 

 

I just remembered since the new patches and C&D my game changed from 64bits to 36bits, could that be the reason why this is happening?

Yeah, if it's stuck like that, theres most of the time nothing you can do.

 

Make sure it's not your mods/cc though.

 

Is your Origin client a different language then the game ?

I am also stuck.. there's nothing I can do. Frown Can't save, can't go into build mode.. nothing. I can play, but have to exit out of game completely without a save. Pointless. This just started last night. I've never had any problems until I loaded Cats & Dogs xpac. Frown

I’m having the same problem. Never happened until today -__- mine happened right after I made over my sim in the mirror. After that I couldn’t save/build/etc because it says “game loading is in progress”

This happened to me (I think) because my sim had 'simstagram a pet' in their queue when I saved and quit. When I loaded the game I took the picture immediately without being able to cancel the action. After I could not travel, build, or save due to 'Game loading is in progress".

 

How I fixed this was quitting to main menu, selecting play game again but this time select any other household. I let a few seconds of time pass so that the 'Simstagram pet' action was likely to be over or even canceled by the autonomy of the sim. I then saved on a separate file, quit to menu and when I loaded the game with the other household everything was fine once more.

 

Hope this helps!

So it happened to me too. I had my Sim take a picture of my pet before leaving the game and then it will always load on the "take a picture" screen, and after that, I'm not able to save. After closing the game, rebooting my computer, clearing all origin folders (Support suggestion) I gave up and created a different family. Everything seemed right until my teenager grew up, after that, I couldn't save, I got the message that I couldn't save while a Sim is aging up, but it over a week after the birthday. 

I contacted EA support, we repaired with Origin, I loaded an older save of the game, but if I repeated the actions, I kept getting the same result. Finally, I had to completely delete the Sims 4 folder from the documents folder and create an entirely new family. I repeated the actions (took pictures of my pets, aged my Sim) and I was able to save. 

I know this is not the solution one would like, mainly if you invested a lot of time in your family, but is what I got. Hope you find it helpful.
