Re: Sims 4 crashing during gameplay after Nov 2020 update

Arg same. I do have CC but nothing else. It's the first time that my game is crashing after an update. I read about the moving the CC folder out but reading the comments here make me wonder if that would actually solve the problem since so many people are having this issue with no CC at all... 
My crashing times are kind of random... It's crashed like 6+ times since I have been playing this evening but sometimes it was after 10  minutes, some were after 3 minutes. I don't get it!!!

@hobbit5494 I’ve had the same problems as well. no mods or cc. I’m able to play, but I normally play without aging and I tried to age up a sim with the normal route (birthday candles) and the sim would just reset and not age up. I tried making different cakes and doing it with different sims and it wouldn’t work. So I tried going into cas in full edit mode and my game crashed maybe 5 minutes later. Super frustrating. I hope they fix this ASAP.

SIMS 4 crashes after Nov 10 2020 update

★★ Novice

I did the patch update this evening and now my game crashes after about 20 mins or so. I dont use MODS or CC. I'm not very tech savvy. So if you're willing to help patience will be needed. I have a few expansion packs but haven't had issues until after this update.

Was just playing a test save and it crashed on me too.

I was in the Magic Realm asking L Faba to teach mischief magic when the game froze for a moment, then crashed.  I'd been playing for about an hour as well.

Just had this happen to me. No CC or mods. Game never crashes previous to this incident. I was playing prior to the crash with a former save for hours. Started a new save, built a house using the new platform and was able to play for two sim days, travelled to the gym before it black-screened and returned me to origin. Relaunch the game, uploaded the same sim and house from my gallery played for one sim day, travelled to a nightclub and encountered another problem with an audio loop of simlish. The game didn't crash but the loop didn't end regardless of what I did (build mode, travelling home). Saved the game and tried to exit it but then it stuck. Task manager said the game was not responding.

Mine is doing this but only when I'm off my home lot. I can't do the festivals or go to bars. Game crashes every time. No CC or mods.

Also I had played earlier today with building, and I was able to build for some time just fine.  I only had the crash when I was playing in Live mode

 

I'd add the crash and exception files, but the system is telling me that the content type doesn't match, even though they're both txt files.

 

Edit to add: And apparently there was also a UI exception.

 

I have no mods installed, no CC.  Running a vanilla game (at the moment.)

 

I'd try repairing the game, but Origin maxes out my CPU when I try a repair (yes, I've commented over there as well.)

@hobbit5494 I have taken out mods folder, repaired game, my laptop has had no issues before update running the game. I even reinstalled my graphics drive. I have been crashing everytime I open it within 5 minutes of playing...
