This user has the following games installed:

Sims 3, World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations
Default The Sims 3 keeps freezing
I recently reinstalled my Sims 3 and its EP and the game keeps freezing every few seconds.The freezing is weird because my sim and the time freeze but the world keeps on going.(leaves keep moving etc.) It worked fine a few days ago and suddenly it just started. I had this problem last time i installed this game aswell,when i was using Win XP 32bit.

My rig:
Windows 7 32 bit
Quad Core Q6600 2.40GHz
3GB Ram
HD 4650

I tried installing the lastest drivers and it didnt help. I know that my GPU is pretty weak but it should be able to run The Sims 3 properly.

Have you tries these steps in here: http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?tit...mittent_Freezes ?

If you have loads of .package files, see this: http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?tit...ackage_File_Lag

If the problems continue and you had the same problem when you uninstalled your game earlier, there might be something wrong with the install. One more tutorial, and this is about how to reinstall and install correctly: http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?tit...p:TS3_Uninstall Please, read it, it is important.

"Freezing"... in computer term, freezing means it stops, freezes in 1 spot and won't move again, ever. But what you described here sounds like your sims freeze, and then move again? Or they just completely froze, and you have to force close the game then restart it? I have run into such problem where I lost en entire interface, and sims won't respond to any of the click. But the shadows of the trees still move. Is this what it is?

Or you do mean the game is just lagging, and stuttering, choppy (freezes bit, move a bit, freezes again, move again)?

Anyway, beside the steps Gelis showed, maybe it helps if you also show what versions your game is at the moment. Base game and all the EP versions.

If you complain your video card is weak, try lowering all the details to Lowest to see if it helps. But if the same problem persists, graphic setting wouldn't matter much.

Do you also have any CC at all?

Hi Gelis, nice to see you around.

I work for a living, but I don't necessarily live for a working.

By freezing i mean the time and the sim freeze in place while the environment keeps moving (leaves on trees etc.)
I have all of the EP/SP,some stuff from the store and some user made CC.
Lowering the graphics didnt help.
so i installed Overwatch and it solved my problem,sort of.
Now i get freezing only in World locations,What do i do?
I am currectly using the latest patch.
