I have noticed alot of in game errors lately is anyone else having these
1. Sims telporting from one part of the house to another
2. Sims walking down the side of the stair rather that down them?
3. Game freezing- you place an item ib the queue and the Sim just stands there and does nothing or gets stuck on the current action so you have to reload game to proceed
4. Skill Day not completing for all sims in house hold causing bad hoilday moodlet
5. Actions in the queue auto cancelling.
6. Child homework not appearing in inventory after school so having to resort to purchasing it from book case to compete. (becareful there to types of homework ensure you purchase correct one)
This is all I can recall at the moment if there are anymore you are having let me know.
Also I MUST highlight I am running the game on a low end machine witch I understand will not help with the issues but I have also seen the errors arising on gaming PC's that are more than capabile of running the game and all packs with no impact to proformace (full memory warnings and the like)
1. This is a known issue.
2. Please post picture or video of this.
3. Please post a DxDiag. https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/pc/how-to-gather-dxdiag-information/
You can attach the txt file directly to your answer.
4. Only Sims that have gained 1 skill point will get a succes.
5. See 3.
6. They may have left it on a table or elsewhere.
Thanks for your reply I have attached the file you requested to this answer and I have checked my PC hits the minimum specs using can I run it does not the recommened so I as advised above I understand that my low end machine will not help matters. It only just touches min specs and I have only seen point 2 happen once and am unable to replicate the error so I wonder if my GPU throttled back temporarily for some reason causing this? I don't want this to come off as stupid but can you expand on point 4 as I am unsure what you mean and want to be 100%. Also point 6 I have looked on all surfaces within the household and unable to find I will look again as I may be missing it.
Yes, your computer is very weak Try setting graphics to low.
Your Graphics driver is very old. visit Nvidia.com to update it. That might help some.
Regarding 4 all sims must gain at least 1 skill point. If not the Sims that do not get it before it ends will get a bad holiday.
Thanks again for your reply, I understand my Computer is very weak joy of not being able to upgrade, you have to deal with what you have right lol. Yes I did complete a new skill on each Sim but only recongnised 2 out the 4 as successful so that is an error. Nvidia have not released an update for my driver since around 2016 14th December 2016 is the lastest driver and they no longer support my GPU so I am not able to update it, it wold mean me replacing the card and I don't have that type of money and with my machine you need a spiecal type of dedicated card for it to run.

This crash seems to have occurred when trying to travel. I had a very similar report. I can not say the same, because it's impossible to compare - too many symbols, but it started identically.
I think it was caused in my game by the penultimate version of the MCC. After replacing the MCC with the version from yesterday, last one - it did not happen again and my sim traveled a lot of times
@kreatoraThanks for your reply, Can you elaborate on the crash you are talking about? I have mulitple issues in game so witch one of the issues are you discussing? I am yet to update the game so I will do that at some point and let you know if the issues above have been fixed if not I may have to stop playing as it will be my PC not very being powerful that wil be the likely culprit.

I am sorry for the mistake, my post should be addressed to @DantyElla but it was very late at night and I was tired,
As for the problems in your game, most of them are caused by a small amount of memory RAM - the minimum is 4GB available for the game, and yet really the minimum given by EA is sufficient only for the base game. You have the amount of RAM available for the game only 3.84 GB. No wonder that the housework of your sims disappears and the queue of tasks disappears as well,
In addition, a part of the errors is caused by your weak graphics card,
For now close all programs running in the background and set low settings of graphics in the game options,
Thanks for your reply I understand I have a very weak PC, joys of not having the funds to upgrade my PC as nowadays they are far to expensive cheapest gamaing PC I have found is around £600 and that is a low end gaming PC, So, I have to deal with what I have avalible I never have apps running in the background while playing and I have 4.GB RAM but not all of it appears avalible to use for some reason I am considering upgrading my RAM to 8GB wihich is the max for my machinre and for the Graphics I have to have one that is a spiecal size so that also costs lol.
