I'm kind of torn .... need some help (maybe)

I know it's been a while since my last update, and here I am asking for some kind of help ...

There haven't been a lot of updates since I really hadn't had much time. I changed jobs at the beginning of the year, and I'm no longer working in shifts. Since I only do day-work now, I don't have as much time to play, write or even keep up with the blogs I follow or the forums I'm a member of.
So I'm really sorry for that.

The other reason I haven't been updating a lot, is because I've been having the pink flashing problem Carla had. I've been ignoring it for some months, and since it's such a random problem, it sometimes seems the problem was fixed.
I've been able to play these past few weeks without any problem, and I was starting to feel confident again, untill today. After exiting a lot my hood was pink again. I entered a house, and went back to the hood, and then another house, and again back to the hood, no pink anymore and no crash, but I'm kind of scared to play again.

The thing is, I really don't feel anything for rebuilding, I had to do it once, and I'm really not looking forward to it. I'm have a huge respect for Carla and Maisie who are doing it at the moment, but I just don't think I can bring myself to do all of that.

The problem is that the only other solutions is to start all over. I'm not looking forward to this either. It will be a lot of work as well. And even though it might be a new chalange, and it will be interesting to see new sims and explore their personalities and backgrounds and all, I will miss my current sims so much.

And the last problem is that I don't want to redownload everything I have in my downloads-folder.

So this is where I could use some help, tips or whatever you all are willing to share; I have no idea what to do know, please give me your ideas!

Thank you!


  1. Oh dear!! Fortunately, I have never had the pink flashing problem myself and therefore can't give any advice on it. And I assume you really don't want to play without CC... it would still be worth a try, removing (not deleting) your CC folder and see if the problem persists, and then one by one adding your CC into the game so that maybe you could identify the culprit and then get rid of just those who cause trouble in your game?

  2. I already replied to this at N99 but I just wanted to add that I'm so sorry you're having this issue. I know from experience that it is so awful and extremely hard to track down. :( It really is the oddest game issue I've ever come across.

  3. Lots of huggles your way that things get solved quickly

  4. Librarian I still don't know what to do and what's causing it, but removing the CC folder temporarly might be helpfull. The pink flashing is so random that it's hard to test that way. I went for weeks without problems and than all of a sudden it's back ...

    Carla Thank you! I've replied on N99. I'm testing things at the moment, and I hope I don't have to go through the entire proces you are going through at the moment.
