Game freezes when switching between build mode and live mode.
My game has been freezing randomly when I try to switch between build mode and live mode.
I've been searching for ages for a solution, there are some similar posts but none which have helped.
I upgraded my system recently, the game speed is fine, I have also updated the base game, World Adventures and High End Loft Stuff with the latest updates and it's only after I've installed Ambitions that it's been freezing.
Any help please!!
On one Lot/Household or all the Lots/Households in that save file?
On one save or all saves?
On new town SunsetValley vs Twinbrook? Same behavior for both?
You shouldn't have Riverview if you had removed all CC.
When does it kick in? Right away or after a few hours of gameplay?
Could you describe the freeze more? Sound, no sound, background stuff moving? Do you have to Ctrl+Alt+Del out of the game, or how long until it resumes?
It happens on all lots I create on all saves.
It hasnt happened in Sunset Valley, only in Twinbrook and it only happens when I switch between build/buy mode and live mode, but it also doesn't happen constantly.
It only happens when switching between build/buy mode and live mode after about the second time I try to save.
When it freezes the music still plays in the background, the cursor still moves and when I hover over an icon it gives me the shortcut to it. I have to Ctrl+Alt+Del out of the game and in task manager it says that the game is running.
Also another problem I picked up on was that I'm unable to cancel an action, the sim stands stationary while the action is still queued with a cross through it.
I really hope you can help me out with this.

You might need one of the StoryProgression mods that clear out derelict vehicles and other world glitch - like overpopulation or underpopulation.
Both AwesomeStory (included in Awesomemod) and Nraas StoryProgression(by Twallan) has a "reset" world/town feature.
You have to read up on the respective sites on the exact how-to, though...to decide which mod has features that suits your gameplay style best.
If you already have been using one of these all along, then you should post a bug report at the modder's site.
