Sims stuck when traveling

★★★★ Novice

Okay i know there are like 100 topics on this but this all explains how to fix the issue when not in game. I never experienced this, my game is slow because of the mods but when i tried to go to another lot it just keeps loading? (The plumbot spinning and text changing, no lag nothing!) how do i fix this without losing my unsaved progress? So how do i get my game to load?

Save the game when you are on the City map. But save using the option "save as..." that you will be able to return to the older save if something will go wrong.
After this you need to check your mods - probably you have some outdated mods.
Move the mods folder to the desktop.
Delete localthumbcache.package file in the game - important!
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.
Turn on the game to create a new, empty mods folder and check if a game is working now without mods and CC.
Check if there are new updated versions of the mods and CC you are using.
Then copy from desktop your mods and CC and paste it in the new mods folder. First, paste script mods one by one every time checking if the game is OK. Do the same with CC but if you have a lot of this, try the 50/50 method. ( divide your CC into smaller batches for example 50 pieces in one subfolder and check these subfolders one by one)
You need to find a culprit and either remove it or replace it with an updated version
