Title: Game crashing in build mode
Post by: missharleyquinn08 on March 01, 2019, 10:37:12 pm
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue. Every time I try to search in build mode to find items faster my game crashes and I can't seem to figure out what the issue could be. I will start typing in the search bar and the cursor will turn into the I symbol and then the game crashes. Please help me I have not been able to enjoy my game all year.

I am not sure what is causing this issue I just started having it this month, I don't know if it's a mod or some cc to be honest but I hope someone will post the fix for it!

Here is something that may help. I did this when my game kept crashing when I would try to type something in the search bar in build mode or would crash when I tried to go into the gallery. This helped me out. Here is the link where I found this. I hope this helps.

Removing/Testing Problem Custom Content
So you've gotten content and you don't want it anymore - or your game is having problems and you need to find the problem CC. Don't panic! Just us a logical process of elimination.

Go go to your Mods directory and move the content out of your game to a different folder outside of the game folders. Perhaps Desktop/TS4 CC. (Don't toss it, you may want it again.)

Testing for problem CC just takes time and effort.

Make a holding folder on your desktop called TS4 CC and copy ALL the mod folder contents to that folder.
Make a folder on your desktop called Problem CC
Make a subfolder under the game's Mods folder called Good or whatever you want to call it.
Also make a subfolder under the game's Mods folder called TEST.
Now the tedious part. Take half the content from the Desktop/TS4 CC folder and stuff it in the MODS/TEST folder. Start the game.
Did the game work ?
Yes? - GREAT! Move all the test folder contents to MODS/GOOD
No? - Temporarily stash it in the Desktop/Problem CC folder.
Move the remaining content from the Desktop/TS4 CC folder to the MODS/TEST folder. Start the game.
Did the game work ?
Yes? - GREAT! Move all the test folder contents to MODS/GOOD.
No? - Temporarily stash it in the Desktop/Problem CC folder.
Now you have to sort the stuff in the Desktop/Problem CC folder the same way.

Move it all to the Desktop/TS4 CC folder.
Move 1/2 of it to the MODS/TEST folder and start the game.
Repeat the steps above as needed until you find the CC that is causing the problem.
