@Igazor any idea why? It was fully updated and didn't have any issues in Egypt & China.

Well, that's not entirely true as Traveler is charged with the carrying of and interacts to some extent with worlds having been traveled to as custom destinations even when active gameplay is in a WA world. It also has options related to the travel countdown clock, Treat as Vacation (True/False), it allows resident pets in foreign worlds and optionally allows the Seasons EP weather manager to run, things like that. Removing the mod mid-trip will result in your sims getting stuck in that world forever if your travel party happens to include sims who would otherwise not be allowed to travel back home (babies, toddlers, pets, anyone who is pregnant, friends of the family).

Afraid I can't say why France is crashing on you. But if Traveler seems to be a contributor, of the above I would have to guess the problem might be something Seasons or weather related that isn't going to fire if the mod is no longer present. Otherwise I would have to suggest bringing this issue to us at NRaas, this isn't something I recall seeing reported.

It's definitely an 'out of memory' error of some kind (although I get no error at all from the game, it just crashes to desktop) and I don't know why since I have plenty of it. I think I still have at least one of the older crash reports, so I'll file it over at NRAAS if someone feels like peeking at it.

As it is, I just removed Traveler which isn't much of an issue to me personally.

Thanks!

Actually no, unlike script error logs, crash logs are generally useless. It might be interesting to note how much RAM your game (in GBs, not %s) was using just before the crash by observing Windows' Task Manager. No matter how much RAM you have, the game can never address more than ~3.7 GB because of it being 32-bit only. If something is ramping RAM usage up into the danger zone above 3.5 GB at the same sim time every day even if you have plenty to spare, the challenge becomes finding out what exact processes taking place at that hour could be causing it -- hence my suspicion of something weather related as that wouldn't take place in Traveler's absence.

Our developer may have other suggestions if you wish to pursue this and may ask for a dump alarms type of report (after explaining how to run one). But the crash log itself I'm afraid wouldn't include any of this information.

Oh that's interesting. I've made a thread on NRAAS with the info I have right now but I'll run another test in a few hours once I'm done with chores with Traveler fully enabled again and take a look at the usage then update over there.

I suspect (in fact can almost completely confirm) that you're right about it being the weather since I ran it with Traveler on about half an hour ago, but with the seasons disabled in France and didn't get the issue. Didn't see if we made it through the entire vacation, but we at least made it to day 4 before I called it as 'probably fine'.

Thanks for your help, as ever!

Do you guys think ea still collects telemetry on sims 3?

I think so. When I disable usage sharing it usually gets forced back on the next time I play.

Do downloaded worlds like this one http://naiyasfury.tumblr.com/post/9...1338/naiyasfury not have police officers to catch burglars? The first night I played the world, a burglar tried to rob my Sim's house. The boyfriend kicked the burglar's butt and stopped the robbery but no police ever showed up.

Maybe it's a better scenario than the case when the cop shows up, arrests the burglar, then they are suddenly reseted because they have nowhere to go without a police station, and your arrested sim becomes so bugged that you have to reload a previous Save. This happened to me when I started a custom neighborhood without fully realizing that there was no police station at all. My career criminal sim went to work, finished his shift, and as soon as he left the criminal workplace, a cop caught him and handcuffed him, The next moment the police NPC froze, my sim had been reseted, and after that became totally unplayable (his portrait disappeared from the UI and I couldn't control him anymore). So it seems, yes, worlds without police station can spawn police officers, but it's very risky to let them operate without the rabbithole.

Did you actually call the police? They don't automatically show up unless there's a burglar alarm.

I placed a school, combo police station/military, and combo grocery store/diner rabbit hole into the world so there is a police station. (Hopefully I didn't screw something up to get bugged Sims.) Both Sims are low level police officers. They do have a burglar alarm, but I'm not sure if it went off. It didn't have the little sound waves coming from it. Both Sims woke up when the burglar came on lot, so I don't know if it was the burglar alarm without the sound waves or if it was something else that woke them up. When the burglar got by the door the boyfriend went downstairs and outside and kicked the burglar's butt in a fight then the burglar left.

I'm glad he won the fight. I'm just curious for other Sims that may not be as athletic (or if that even is what helped him win.)

Edited to Add: I had sound off last night to not bug my roommate, so that is why I didn't hear or know if the burglar alarm went off.

How high is a default Sims 3 foundation IRL actually?

I think a grid square is roughly 1x1m, so it would roughly be 3/4th of a meter?

Is there a way to not have aggressive/loyal pets spawn burglars every 5 minutes? If I don't remember to cancel the "Guard the house" interaction they spawn around 2-3 burglars a night. It's really irritating. I don't think this has anything to do with the traits themselves per sec, but rather the time pets with those traits spend doing it. I've tried to google this every which way and either no one has heard of the problem or no-one knows how to stop it D:

Hi everyone!
Can I have DELICIOUSLY INDULGENTÂ*BAKERY from Sims 3 store and install it in my game by having only base game and IP and generations? Or it needs other EPs too?
