Hi @kieraaaab

 

could you give a bit more details ? This is a very old thread with a bit of a mixture of things

 

  • Does it happen all the time or was it a one time thing ?
  • Are you using mods/cc ?
  • Was it stuck saving as the thread title suggests or did you not have the option to save at all ?

Happy Gaming

My problem is that today i was playing my game and when i wanted to save (not quit just save) it just loaded the saving screan for ages and ages and i had to restrast my computer but i lost everything and it kept happening over and over again! Even when i aged up a baby and i used cas.fulleditmode to go in cas to edit my sim and when i was finished and clicked on the check button it just got stuck on the loading screen for ever! Please help me!

I had this issue just now with saving a household. I had edited my sims to have clothes, their icons didn't load in game despite they had already generated in CAS just fine, so I explicitly went to save to exit the household and see if that reloaded the icons. So I just lost all those edits.

Just before I started playing, I also had this happen when I was saving a gallery Sim to my library, before I had even loaded my worlds and was on the title screen. I had to force quit and load the game again.

@aresvallis 
I do not know if you have them but try removing (not disabling) mods / cc and delete the localthumbcache.package and any other cache files.
Test the game to see if the issues are still there.

I'm a new Sims 4 player with a brand new, fresh clean install of the game. It was fine for a few days but when the Island Living patch came out I started experiencing all sorts of issues. I don't have any mods.

 I don't think the cache or unloaded items is the issue with the random saving-a-gallery-sim hangup I experienced in Gallery prior to even loading any saves, either.
