Sims 4 saves size

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Any one have ideas why sims 4 saves greatly increased in size.

I load my game with Slot_00000004.save 21773 Kb size and after 1 second saves again, but its already 62070 Kb.

So when i load that save game ram load jumpes to 3700+ and game crashes.

 

already clear all caches, sytem checks etc.

If delete that saves game work normal, but i dont want to lose saves and start new game coz maybe this bug appears again

Strange. Mine aren't nearly as big. Do they just increase in size or decrease when you close the game ?

Did you try deleting your cache files, rename the saves folder and start a new game to see if the same happens again ?

 

Do you have mods ? Many items in your tray folder ?

No i dont use mods.

Tray folder maybe around 20 items.

 

New game without old saves work fine, and i cant test it in new game coz it started after 300+ gamedays.

But i remember last few weaks game worked bad,

sometimes action icon freezes or job promotion freeze (all my family have full promotion bar but no promotion)

And restart fix that.

 

Save file code:

 

3534 MoodBuff_Hidden_Flirty Т
3535 buff_Object_Dresser_TryOnOutfits Т:%
3536 MoodBuff_Hidden_FineDefault ГБ:%
...
195794 MoodBuff_Hidden_Flirty „”У :
 

 

Now i know why my saves so huge, coz sims store all livetime actions in savefiles.

And deleting that family dont erase logs in savefile.

So if we have 8ppl family save file size increases quick.

 

New game file 1-14524 strings
My save 1-2376236 strings

 

I try deleting all famies but its only 2033 Kb so now my save 60077 Kb

 

But anyway dont know why sims create 40mb stings text in save for 1 second gameplay.

Only if sims spam background errors...

Not good. 

 

Thanks for all the details. I'll try to forward to EA. Can't make any promises though since I don't work for them.
