Sims 4 "Not Responding"

Having the same exact issue, but the problem is i've already done such a huge work on building houses on there including CC so i'm scared to remove it because i think none of my builds will stay in the game after i run it as an administrator and repair it. Am i right? Could that happen?



Can i just run the game as an administrator and repair it without having to cut and paste my CC somewhere else? And is that in any way a better solution?


Basically, just want to know that when and if i do this, is it possible my whole game stays the same, with no changes, including what's inside her?


Thanks in advance Standard smile))))

Hi @Rosesteinmann 


it depends on the cc you have. There's outdated cc that can cause issues so maybe you have something that others don't have which makes your game not load


Only way to be sure it's not your cc is if you test the game without it and see if it then loads.


If it does, you need to weed through your cc and find the guilty party that is causing the issue



Use the 50/50 method:
