Nah, they are just mods. The only thing you will need to do if/when you remove them is clear your caches again.

That the controller that resets sims, cars, and rabbit holes? Cuz when sims was slowing all the way down, i thought it was the graphics. However after alot of research, i found out that i could possibly have a sim or something stuck. I tried the controller, it brought my sims back to life. It resets all sorts of stuff periodically and i don't see any slow down. works with cc.

That's Overwatch you're thinking of. Same modder though. Master Controller does that too, but you have to tell it to. OVerwatch checks for borkages and tries to fix it automatically at 3am every Sim day.

Error Trap does a full reset when you install/uninstall it. That's not a function though, it's because it's a Core Mod.

I'm working on installing this now, but I'm unclear as to whether Master Controller is supposed to increase stability? Or does it just ad configuration options?

I installed the master controller, but it's crashing more than normal now. I can't load into the character creator now.

I installed the master controller and the mod. Should I remove one?

Could this be hardware related?

If Master Controller is causing you problems then uninstall it for now. Check your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 for Script Errors.

Well, I think I've given up. I've found out though in the troubleshooting that I can play the game unpatched. When it's patched something is screwed up and it keeps crashing.

I've uninstalled the game and reinstalled it without EA or the launcher and it's been working for the last few hours.

Maybe I'll try again at the next patch release.

Thanks so much for all your help!

Wow, I just posted that and the game crashed to windows.

Whatever, I've put more hours into repairing this game than I've played it 20 times over.

I think I'm done with it.

So after putting hours and hours and hours into this issue, I finally decided to take my computer in to get it checked out because I have also been having bsod issues since I bought it, and I just picked it up today, and the shop replaced and upgraded my RAM, motherboard and CPU all under warranty.

I'm thinking this must have had something to do with my issues.

I'm going to try and update sims and see if it works now. I'll post back and let you know.
