So I’ve had recurring random crashes for a long while and now, even with a fresh restart and pretty much every tip and tool I’ve ever heard of, the hood shows signs of corruption. It doesn’t crash often and it’s definitely playable but I can’t ignore the flashing purple or the blank wants or what have you forever. I took out 10GB of CC when I did the reinstalling and while the sims are all there and the hood seems a lot less doomed than before, I’d still have to pretty much re-decorate every house and do makeovers for every sim.
I’ve decided it’s time for a rebuild. I’ve never actually done one before so this will be interesting.
