Default game crashing when aging male adults to elders
hi, i've been experiencing this problem for as long as i've been playing with ultimate collection. i'm playing on windows 10 without any problems (i have all the right fixes and everything) i'm using a nvidia graphics card. i make a point to change my sims into base game clothing and hair. (sim in question doesn't have custom skin, but this seems to happen with all of them) i searched my files for the specific file that causes this trouble and couldn't find it or one of the size. could anyone help me out with this? i did find two files sizes 6.64 mb and removed them but still crashed when trying to age up jake kody. thank you!

Have you tried fixing your game? (make a backup first) Go into Origin, right click the game and select fix.

Have you tried removing all your CC when ageing up?

I'm not sure what file you are talking about removing.

i can't find the link now but it's a specific file with a bunch of letters and an 11 that isn't necessary that makes itself from clothes or something. i haven't tried, because i only have a lot of CC and i don't have any other problems other than with this, so i've been killing off my male sims if i can't age them up. (morbid i know, but i have no other way to play the game if everything else fails) i know it has to do with a corrupt file, but i don't know how to find it.

edit: here's info about the file i can't locate (possibly) http://modthesims.info/t/529552

You Must first test to see if you have problems when trying to age up a Sim with out any CC. Then if the problem does not exist, you Must Then do a 50/50 test where you test with 50% of your CC and see if the error occurs, if you don't get the error then you switch to the other 50%. If you do get the error then remove 50% and test the remaining 50%, else test the other other part.

You keep doing this until you have isolated the offending file.

@havesamantha Ah yes, I know of that. Most times unfortunately its because some cc randomly corrupted and you need to find and remove it. First test with no CC then unless your folders are neatly organized and you can neatly pull and test your elder CC it's the 50/50 as lordtyger9 suggested.

I had that problem too and for me, the culprit was the custom skin tone that I have. It's such a drag to change the character file on SimPE but that's what I did and I successfully turned my sim into an elder.

guys i've figured out what i think could possibly be a fix for this. i had an adult sim aging to elder and he crashed my game. i went back and this time didn't type boolprop upon entering my neighborhood and he aged up normally. after i went back and put the code back in to continue gameplay and everything worked fine! i've only tested this with 1 sim but plan to continue trying.

I would like to point out that when the UC crashes, it is not because it is the UC. It is normally because of cc, conflicting mods, etc. - in other words, the exact same things that would crash the game when you use disks.

update: this didn't work for long. i've given up aging them until i have the time to figure out the troublemaker (got scared because someone suggested clothing and i can only imagine how many hours it'll take for me to find the culprit) so the elixir of life has been a life saver (literally) in at least delaying the aging process in the male sims. (don't want to turn aging off altogether)
