The Ultimate Sims 4 Crash Fix Guide

In this article I’m going to show you some tips and tricks that would solve the crashing problem in sims 4. First and foremost your game needs to be under the required gaming specifications. Anything below the minimum requirements your game would not be able to start or would crash at the loading screen.

Shown below are the minimum requirements needed for Sims 4 to run.

The Sims 4 Minimum Requirements

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ (2.0 GHz Dual Core required if using integrated graphics)
CPU SPEED:PROCESSOR: PROCESSOR: 1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon 64 Dual-Core 4000+ or equivalent
RAM: 2 GB
OS: Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/ Windows 10
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 or ATI Radeon X1300 or Intel GMA X4500
SOUND CARD: Yes
FREE DISK SPACE: 10 GB

If you do not know how to check the requirements properly click here to do an automatic safe detection to see if your game is compatible or not.

If you pass the test then you could try doing the below steps to see if your game can be fixed.

Causes of Sims 4 Crashing

  1.  Origin Client Server Errors
  2. Crashing Outdated Corrupted CC/Mods – Most Common
  3. Unnecessary Background Applications
  4. Memory Errors – Most Common
  5. Compatibility Issues and Patch Levels

Origin Errors/Server Errors 

Problems due to the Orgin game client would cause the game to eventually crash. Make sure you keep the software up to date so this won’t happen.  If you suspect that the game client is the cause of your game crash then a server issue could be suspected.

Another fix that could be done would be to relocate the Sims 4 Screenshots folder to another location or deleting some images from the folder itself.  Overloading this folder with images could keep the game crashing on startup or during the game.

The directory of the Sims 4 screenshots folder is shown below in the image

The Crashing Outdated CC/Mods

Custom content are one of the biggest causes that would make the Sims 4 crash. Incompatible outdated game mods would cause a conflict with the game patch level. For an example let’s say your game is patched to 1.33 but the game mod is patched to 1.33 BELOW then the game can crash.

Possessing a lot of mods in the mods folder would do the same thing. So make sure to remove the unnecessary ones , be particular about the game scripting mods as it could mess with the game settings.

It’s not that hard to detect which mod is making the crash occur sometimes it affects particular aspects in the game. For an example if the game constantly crashes while you are trying to woohoo two sims then it could be a woohoo mod that is causing the issue. So in this type of situations try to remove the conflicting mod or check the mod creator’s website for an update.

If you are seriously unable to detect the corrupted custom content that is affecting your game, there is a particular software that can detect conflicting mods called  Mod Conflicts Detector  that would automatically do the job for you.

A screen shot of this particular software is present below.

The rows that are denoted in red would be the conflicting mods and should be either replaced or deleted.

Unnecessary Background Applications

Don’t let other unnecessary programs consume your virtual memory. Don’t run download managers, Skype and other memory extensive programs when running Sims 4 that would most likely cause a crash.

Simply press CTRL+ALT+DELETE on your key board and select “Task Manager” and select  any unnecessary program and click “End Task” This would terminate the program.

Memory Errors

It is understandable that Sims 4 only uses 2 GB to run the game however it should be noted that when there are more expansions or if the save game file is increased this would need more memory than specified in the Sims 4 requirements.  This issue is clearly present when you have a very large lot along with a lot of residents.

A solution would be to evict the residents (which most people like me won’t prefer) or moving the sims to a smaller lot (which also sucks). The other solution would be to provide more RAM for the game.  You could buy a 16GB ram and insert into the PC but it might not still solve the problem, because the game is designed to ONLY use 2GB. Therefore, a method should be used so that the game could run using more than 2GB.

Increasing User VA is the most common solution that is done to handle this problem but should be attempted at your own risk. But it did solve the problem for me. However it did have many complications when i attempted in Sims 3 (read it here- Sims 3 Crashing to Desktop) but no issues were found in Sims 4.

Increasing user Va also helps battling Error Code 12 and other saving issues.  Due to the risks, the method would not be available here. Instead the article would introduce you to some mods that would help fix the crashing issue.

Mods that Fix Sims 4 Crashing to Desktop

The truth is there is not any mod to fix the crashing itself-  but use certain strategies related to such mods so you can either evict the house hold and maybe install the game again and start over. That usually solves the problem.

Compatibility Issues and Patch Levels

The Sims 4 could be played in any game OS regardless the game specifications. However, in some rare occasions an error would be shown that the game is not compatible.  The solution would be to right click the TS4. exe and go to properties and select program compatibility  and change it to another OS of your preference.

The patch levels should be checked and the game should be updated regularly to prevent crashing. Not updating the game would cause custom content conflicts where the CC would be updated to the higher level but your game is updated to the CC level.

In order to identify to which level you are currently patched in the game. You should go to the Sims 4 directory located in My Documents and select the game version file. Check the version it is updated to and simultaneously check the latest patch available on EA atm and download and install the latest patch.

The Finale and Useful Tips

Sims 4 is a great game but it’s developing and expanding and would have more errors like Sims 3 eventually.  Make sure to save regularly and keep the game updated to prevent your data from being lost. Always back up your save game files before attempting anything.

Thanks for reading and Happy Simming! 😀

The sims 4 smoking mod is currently the most requested mod by simmers to spice up the gangster vibe inside the game. The requirements for this mod to work will be two additional mods which is commonly used in the sims community The Pose Player and The Teleporter. Mod credits go to Lana CC

Functional Weed Mod

Ever wanted to be a drug dealer in Sims 4? Now here’s your simmie’s chance. This functional weed mod would let the player grow weed, harvest them, sell and buy weed and includes a clubber trait for smoking them. Remember getting addicted to weed is bad but still it does not hurt to make your simmie hit the pot a little while. The mod credits goes to Basemental.

Weed in jars

Gun Mod

Let me be honest, in Sims 3 there was a mod that let sims carry guns and actually shoot other sims but it is not present in Sims 4. So currently a gun could be held as an accessory which could really add some flavor to your cow boy movie themes. This of course excludes the the Sims 4 DLC  Get to Work guns.The mod credits goes to StudioKCreation.

Drunk Mod

The sims 4 drunk mod is finally here. Let all the parties start and never end. The mod would have the ability to enhance the over medicated moodlet making your sim woozy and dazed from having shots at the bar. Experience your sim behaving weirdly, rolling their eyes and walking not straight! Hypothetically speaking the dazed mood would of course go away from having a nap. The credits go to Candyd. You need the Get to work expansion for this mod to work.

drunk and juggling XD
yep woozy…

Birth Control Mod

Having sex in Sims 4 is can be unsafe if you are willing to get your story progression destroyed by making a sim pregnant (or if the sim become pregnant accidentally). This is an addon (named MCC Woohoo Addon) for a very popular MC Command Control mod which makes your sim take a drug name Illudium Q-36 Birth control. Rumor has that this option appears for sims who are flirty and swingers. Remember tohave the MC Commander mod first. And then the add on. Happy Swinging!

Full Body Tattoo

Nothing is badass than a full body tattoo for your sims. The mod is made by LounaCutex and is really popular on tumblr.

Anti-Social Master Mind Trait

Being a bad boy in Sims 4 means being a bit aggressive and antisocial. And this could be achieved through this mod by Kialauna. The sims with this trait would survive the lack of social interactions and probably would commit crimes and has a keen eye for mischief and being the little devil.

TS4 Torture and Chaos Mod

We can’t live without magic and dabbling with the occult is type of a bad boy trait. Introducing the book of Chaos and Torture which issues commands and some of them are pretty unusual and bizzare. I’ve read the list and I find the most unusual ones are as follows:

  • Drowning a Sim in Pee
  • Kiss of Death
  • Kiss of Flames
  • Electrocuting
  • Throwing a Poisoned Drink

Make your sim a spawn of Satan today with this wonderful mod. Credits go to Dramatic-Gamer for creating this awesome mod.
