Sim is stuck and won’t move.

★★ Newbie

My sim is stuck and won’t move. I have tried the resetSim cheat and it works for a second then freezes or gets stuck again. How do I fix this problem?

Re: Sim is stuck and won’t move.

@ahayes1020  The first thing to try is deleting the five cache files in your TS3 game folder in Documents\EA.  These files should be deleted regularly anyway, even in the absence of game issues.  While you're troubleshooting, delete them every time you play.  For reference, they are:

  • CASPartCache.package
  • compositorCache.package
  • scriptCache.package
  • simCompositorCache.package
  • socialCache.package

If this alone doesn't help, use "save as" to rename the save (so you have a backup), then quit, delete the cache files, and load the newly renamed save.  Then go to Edit Town, evict your active household, save the now-empty house to the bin, bulldoze the lot, replace it with its bin copy, and move your sims back in.  If you do all of this in one Edit Town session, the sims will keep their jobs and relationships but lose their promised wishes and opportunities.


Let me know whether either of these works, and if not, I'll write out a more thorough intervention.


I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
