Re: [OPEN] Stacked items in inventory/household inventory cause game crash

★★★★★ Novice

I do get this bug too, whenever I try to use a spellcaster with multiple brooms in their inventory and I touch anything in their inventory, the game immediately crashes. Once, it even crashed just by opening the inventory.

 

The problem disappeared when I got rid of the extra brooms though, the easiest way I found to do it is to give it to some other sim (NPCs) as a gift. In that case the menu that shows me the list of objects in the inventory is another one, the objects don't appear as stacked, and I never saw any crash.

@Clisaaa Thanks for all the details.

There's currently a bug with stack of brooms/wands/other stuff crashing the game.

Do you have any of those in your inventory ?

Good Luck

Thank you for the reply!

 

I do have a stack of lightsabers. Could that be it? I haven't touched the Realm of Magic stuff on this sim just yet.

 

Not sure how I could go about ridding the sabers if it is.

Thanks everyone for helping test this issue. I'm confident now, that with the two methods that seem to work to get rid of the stacks, the game can be playable as long as you don't keep stacks of items in your inventory (special stacks with the stack icons)

 

Please see my blog post for more details: https://sims4.crinrict.com/eng/2024/03/stacked-inventory-items-crash-the-game/

 

Let me know if you have more issues or if the methods don't work for you.

 

Please use this thread if you have issues with stacks in the household inventory: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Game-crashing-when-selling-moving-from-build-buy-mode/td-p/135...

 

MOD FIX

 

So NeedCoffee4That created a small mod for this issue: https://www.simfileshare.net/download/4513178/

 

It uses the proposed suggestion here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-Stacked-items-in-inventory-household-inventory-caus...

 

What is does is getting rid of the multiple different items stacks. It only stacks brooms etc that are exactly the same broom and not all brooms together.

 

This is a simple band-aid and not a proper fix but it stopped the crashing.

 

The mod isn't thoroughly tested so please use at your own risk. I did some testing with the brooms in the two saves I have and didn't see any issues when using the brooms.

 

Testers are still needed for light sabers, kyber crystals and hilts. Let me know if those work too.

 

 

Good Luck

Hi,

 

How do I fix this issue on an Xbox Series X? I have no MODS/CC/Cheat codes. 

 

it happens with Gardening equipment too, like planting pots and areas.

 

thank you

@Kigglesworth23 Both methods should work for all platforms. Do you have any paintings in your inventory ? As written in my guide, they cause issues.

Re: (GT) Game crashe while taking collectibles out of the inv. on a retail lot

★★★ Newbie

Same here. It's happening for both brooms and wands for me. I can't delete them because as soon as my mouse hovers over both items, the game crashes. Not really sure what to do at this point. It has made the game unplayable for me as any time I open a Sims inventory and scroll, chances are my mouse hovers over the items and the game crashes.
