Game Crashing

★★★★ Novice

Hi All!


My game keeps crashing when I play. It will crash anywhere from 5 min in to 1 hour in. It isn't crashing on the loading screen or startup, but actually during game play. I have atteched my files.



Note: It won't let me upload the .txt files for some reason. Below is a link to the files I uploaded on google drive.

Your graphics driver is very old. Visit to upgrade. See if that helps.

Thanks for your reply! I updated my graphics card to the lastest version, but it still crashed within five minutes of playing.

Do you have any Mods or CC? If so move your Mods folder to the Desktop and delete localthumbcache.package. Then test the game.

I do have cc and mods. I removed them and it did not crash. I also noticed that it only crashes when I'm in one household. When I went to another house using cc it did not crash. So I removed my cc from the house that crashes and it still crashed.
