i also tried to go to edit town mode but i fail , i can't even enter the edit town mode . I also cannot enter the buy mode build mode to delete the inventory item T_T
Are you using custom content or mods ? Does this happen on a older game or do you have the same issue if you start a new one ?
You can try the Resetting to factory settings tip described here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/Troubleshooting-Steps/m-p/714/message-uid/714#U714 to see if that helps.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
That just happened to me, too.
Every once in a while this does happen, but not often.
Generally, pausing the game before Save As works very well. Then I just hit Quit and quit without saving.
I no longer have mods or custom content, so this can happen to anyone.
Try to follow the steps given in this link:
It might be possible that you would not be able to find some files mentioned in the article. You should be able to find the file sims3.bad.
This file is a result of file corruption so simply delete it and then try to save your game.
