The Sims 3 Tips

Fix the micro-freezes
At some point, most Sims 3 players will experience a frustrating bug which causes your sims to freeze momentarily (note: it doesn't cause the GAME to freeze, only the sims freeze in their actions) for a few seconds.
This is cause by a fault with the game itself and not your system. For most people using a simple cheat can fix the problem for a period of time.

1. Press ctrl shift and c to open the drop down commands box in the top left hand corner.

2. Type

resetsim *

in the box and press Enter

3. Your sims needs and wants will reset but the freezing problem should disappear.

It is a good idea to save your game beforehand just in case something does go wrong.
Happy Simming!
