This happened because you deleted a house hold involving a sims with a relationship bug. Reload your reserve saves prior to deleting household and don't delete anymore households until EA / Maxis fixes the issue.


To get rid of some sims,


I killed off some sims by drowning them

I then let them pass on and destroyed their tombstones.

Haven't encountered this error since.

Did you delete any sims from any household?
Reload to an earlier save than that and don't delete any sims. Just kill them off if you need to get rid of them.

Hi! I had the exact same problem, I just downloaded Cats and Dogs and it happened to do that. But, I'd just like to say that clicking ''NEW GAME'' will actually work (just back up your saves file if you want to save your old save). I can now play again with cats and dogs and everything in the new update. Plus I'm using cc and its working very well. Thank you for the help.

I have encountered exactly the same problem of not being able to load a game. The screen goes dark and the 102 error code appears telling me to reload the game. It does the same thing on reloading.


It is very frustrating.

I was trying to delete randomly generated households. I was doing this earlier without any problems but after Cats & Dogs release I got this error. It's like I have two problems at once. I do not want those randoms walk around my world in The Sims 4 and now I can't even delete them cause I'm getting errors.


Yes. I assume this bug has something to do with broken relationship after deleting some households. I do really hope this will be fixes somehow fast cause this break all my game and I don't want to start everything from nothing.


And we finally need an option to stop the game to create those randoms...

Hi guys! I have been following this post for 3 days now, I have the same problem and I really don’t know what to do so... thanks for this post!
Anyway.... I understand that if you move an household from played to unplayed the error 102 occurs... dumb question now: if somehow I manage to recover my save from before the update and promise I won’t touch at all the “manage household”, will I still get the problem? I don’t want to progress with my legacy for one day and lose everything the day after!

BlackyVickers...I am playing with a recovered game.

I didn't touch any family in my "manage household" Screen.

With pets, without pets, with created pets, with adopted pets, with several families on far I am not having problems.

Sounds like music to my ears!
What about editing sims in CAS? Any problems after?
