Sims 4 household crash

★★★★ Novice

Heey Standard smile


So I've been having issues with my fave household (I've put many many hours into it). The game starts fine, and all other households work normally, but when I try to load this specific one, the loading screen comes on and then it freezes and the whole game crashes.


I've tried repairing the game, and it didn't work. I didn't try reinstalling yet because I don't wanna lose this family if I can help it...


Does anyone have any idea how it could be fixed?


Thank you in advance!

This is my problem since the patch update too Frown, but you can save your lot to library and family but i think its just a complete glitch where you will have to restart Frown

I'm starting to think you're right... I tried restoring it to an earlier version, but it still crashed. 


I'm just so crossed because I spent ages on it and didn't use any cheats with them... I was super proud

If you have any mods or CC move the mods folder to the desktop.
Delete localthumbcache.package file in the game folder and fix the game in Origin.

Origin/Library -right click on TS4 - option "Repair game"
You have to wait until Origin will fix all packs, not only the base game.

f you don't have CC or mods delete this file and fix the game also. The game will create the same new file but without saved errors.

Turn on the game to create a new, empty mods folder. Check if a game is working now without mods.
Then copy from desktop your mods and CC and paste it in the new mods folder. First, paste script mods every time checking if the game is OK. Do the same do the same with CC but if you have a lot of this, try the 50/50 method

If it will not work:
.You can try also to move your family in family management panel to some an empty lot - choose the option "sell all furniture". And after this move them back. This can fix the game also.
