The game failed to load . Error code 3.
★★★★ Novice

Ever since i installed the latest update my sims haven't been the same :C the game opens up and immediately gives the error :The game failed to load . Error code 3.


ive removed all mods and it plays fine without them, however if i keep the downloads in and remove all tray items the game loads fine. if i keep all items in and remove all saves, the game wont give me the option of playing new game, you can push the play button and it will take you to create a sim but once you finish it will go to worlds but the family you made doesn't exist. 


im just having a terribly hard time figuring out where to start looking for the problem, if its something in my downloads, from the tray or from the saved files


i tried removing half of the tray files and playing the game while keeping the downloads and it wouldn't work, so i tried the other half and it still wouldn't work so what i learned there is if it is in the tray files then its no ONE file. which makes it hard to locate if its there since i cant tell what tray file is what. i tried just having one  type of file in at once, (first all .household binary, then all .tray item etc) but nothing has worked.
