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.

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:

https://help.ea.com/article/sims-3-world-adventures-error-12-13-or-16

 

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.
