The Sims Down Today?

The Sims 4 was released in North America first on September 2, 2014, followed by Europe and Australia on the 4th, on the 5th the UK release was available and it was released for OS X worldwide February 17, 2015. Are you having The Sims server issues? This seems to be the main problem when it comes to this game, and here on Down Today you can report within the Sims community.

This simulation video game developed by The Sims Studio and Maxis published by EA never made it onto the console, by December 2014 1.10 million copies were sold worldwide but this wasn’t enough to stop EA closing its doors to the studio that created The Sims. Even so, this will not impact The Sims 4 players, new experiences as well as other expansions packs and updates will continue.

When it comes to the main issues with the game, servers going down are the most impacting as well as The Sims 4 crashing on gamers around the world. If you have any problems at all with The Sims 4 playing, not downloading or anything else please do share below.

Ever since the new update, I’ll get the error code:0 if I try save after altering any community lot even if it’s just adding a BENCH. I have all of my mods up to date and have ones that aren’t yet updated out of my mods folder, but it keeps happening.

Did you upload all sims data to playstation plus then go to Console settings then storage then save data then delete all sims 4 data and user data for sims 4? Then did you turn off console when it is entiely off hold power button on console untill you hear 2 beeps then hold it for anothe 7 seconds then connect ps4 controller with USB cable then press PS button on controller then log in to your ps4 profile. Put sims 4 disc in load it it should install all updates then after game has finished installing press PS button on controller go to playstation plus and download all sims 4 saves and user data that you uploaded. Then go to playstation store go to purchases then on sims 4 game click it to open it then under the games icon you will see different options click on Playstation Store option under games info under Trending In the store click on Game Icon like mine shows SIMS 4 and next to it will say ADD ONS click on this to show all add ons then click the arrow pointing down icon next to each one to download each one. Click PS button on controller to return to game and load up a game. When playing it will say unable to load some items quickly close this item then save then exit to main menu. This message box comes up for the ADD ON content you are downloading. Do this each time it comes up now save befor exit to main menu to have your add ons installed. Now it suddenly had to crash today 2 days after I got it working.

My friend called me last night chatting about life, she went on for like an hour discussing about bad people are to her and that life isn’t fair just to realize in the end she was talking about a flipping game called The Sims.

Not really liking this game anymore, got bored of it. When is SIMS 5 coming to release?

SIMS is a complete let down and i will never buy a new one if they release it. Keep on crashing is not my idea of immersive fun.

Installed the new update and now when I try to play the game a message saying ” The sims 4 game has stopped working. A problem has occurred that the game isn’t working properly.” I didn’t have a problem before I updated Origin. Now it won’t even work. This is BS.

Since the latest update gameplay on SIMS 4 has been all over the place, just keeps crashing on me.

This happened to me, but I found that leaving it for an inordinately long time (longer than before it was updated) allowed it to kick itself into action eventually. Annoyingly it opened (eventually) in windowed mode which seems to have slowed the load time down considerably.

In short: be patient and give it at least 10 mins (not even exaggerating sadly!)

Moving the mod folders will have no affect Chase. I tried it and it doesn’t make any difference.

Since the Origin update Sims 4 has stopped working when it tries to start. Is it worth moving the mods folder or something?
