Sims 4 Crashing On Startup

Here are some tips to try:

1. Move your mods folder to the desktop, clear your game cache and delete the localthumbcache.package from the Sims 4 folder to help with troubleshooting. Try playing the game again to test. If it loads okay, it may be that some of the mods/cc have become outdated.

2. Making sure graphics drivers are up to date.

After updating the graphics drivers, restart the computer.

3. If you have a dual graphics card system, make sure the game runs on the card and not the chip.

4. Turn off Origin in game:
In Origin > Application Settings > Origin In-Game. Turn this off. As sometimes it causes issues with the game.

5. Start the game in Windowed mode, via Origin:

In Origin > Games Library - Right-click on Sims 4 and select Game Properties.
In the Command Line Arguments, add the following text: -w and click Okay.

6. Try running Origin As Administrator:
Right-click on the Origin icon on the desktop and select Run as Administrator.

7. Reset your Sims 4 folder, as explained in the post below:
