Random crashing and no medicine?
« on: October 31, 2018, 01:21:20 AM »
Ive noticed that my game has been just shutting off. No warning, no error, it just slightly pauses and then closes back to origin. I'm saving every 20 minutes or sooner just to be careful. Sometimes I can go a few hours and nothing at all sometimes it does it 3 times in a few hours. Any suggestions?

On another note we cant buy medicine anymore? I know we didnt used to be able to go to a hospital except for birth is that different? Ive seen no prompts or options for medicine or hospitals.

Many thanks for the help!

You didn't mention what you've tried to troubleshoot the crashing, so please forgive any repeat tips.

Here are a few tips to try, with more in the post linked below:

1. You may need to check to make sure drivers are up to date.

Finding devices and updating drivers on your PC

2. The crashing could be a potential power supply or overheating issue. Try cleaning out your computer, if that doesn't help. You may need to either have a friend help clean it out or take it to a repair shop to get it cleaned out. You may also want to have them test the power supply to rule out issues with that.

3. Deactivate Origin in Game -- Open Origin, Select Origin > Application Settings > Origin In Game and deselect or turn Off to disable Origin In Game.

4. Start the game in Windowed mode -- In Origin, go to the Games Library tab, and right click on the Sims 4 Cover and select Game Properties - In the Command Line Arguments, add the following text: -w and click Okay.

5. Check that mods and custom content are up to date with the latest patch. These become outdated with every new patch and cause issues with your games.

Sounds like you can purchase medicine from the computer. I'm not sure. If that's not working, clear game cache and the localthumbcache.package from the Sims 4 folder even if not using mods and custom content. Try replacing the computer and try again.

I know this is a late reply. I fixed the game and repaired it and it no longer crashes. Thanks!
