View Full Version : Game crashes when sim is choosing community lot.
24th Jul 2005, 5:28 PM
Okay, so here's the deal. I just finished making a sim family of one, finished making her house all gothied up with a huge amount of downloads (at least it seems alot to me.), and then I wanted her to go into town to a clothing shop defaulted to the game, to buy a bunch of the clothes that I had downloaded. Only, when she got in the taxi, she drove off, and then I was greeted with a black screen with the words "Where do you want to go?", with the Windows error ping type sound. I had to press Alt + F4 + ESC just to get the game to minimize so I could see what was wrong, and the error message said that the application has crashed, and will now close. It closed, and then I immediately came here. My downloads folder has 1,689 objects in the folder. Mostly its clothes, and recolored objects and the like. I don't download houses, careers, dorms, or anything like that. Just objects, clothes, make-up, and hair. Thats it. I have no idea whats going on, and I won't play the game untill I figure out whats going on, so, someone, please help.

I had the same thing happen. I reinstalled and took all mt dl out and sorted and all that stuff. That did not help me any. My husband thought there might be some weird stuff in my reg and decided to rebuild my machine. I haven't loaded my sims back on yet. Let me know what you do to yours ? Lol my comp really needed a good housecleaning anyways but that is the exact thing that happened to mine. The only objects on that lot are maxis made. Mine was doing fine till I picked where to go and it loaded 2 of those block things and crashed and when I loaded it back up she was coming back from the comunity lot and what all happened leading up to that, like her promotions and stuff were saved. Really strange. I have been looking on the threads to see if anyone was having the same problem.

Bring up your game and try to enter one of the community lots like you do when going in to decorate. If you cannot get in it, its possible that there is something in there causing problems. You'll have to track it down by putting a few items in your downloads at a time to track it down.
OR it could be something that was being used like a terrain or even a Maxis topiary that you no longer have in your downloads. Yes, some deleted meshes CAN cause problems! Most meshes you can easily remove and it never affects anything though.
You might have to just create or download new community lots. To remove the ones that are there without having dips and holes in your neighbourhood screen, put the building into your houses bin, then delete from there.

Thanks for your help, Sissimoody. I'll try that. As far as I know, I haven't deleted any Maxis made products. I mean, before the game crashed, I was cleaning up my downloads folder, and I deleted alot of my downloads that weren't working. I remember deleting something with a purple icon, when I clicked on it, it said something about a patch, and how to install it. I don't know anything about a patch, as far as I know, so, could that have been it?

Right now, I have the same problem. I just made a new family and when I try to put it into a lot, it crashes. I thaught the problem was the lot but I deleted it and it isn't. I have no problem with creating a family but everytime I try to enter a house, the game crashes. What can I do ?

Well, my game seens to be alright now.. I went onto the community lot that I'd been trying to get to, switched a few things around, and added a few of the downloads, and then went to my family lot, had her go to that community lot, and it worked. she now has bought almost all of the clothes from my downloads folder (If not all of it.) and she's about to go home. I'll update with news later.
