Default The Sims 3 crashes in view map
I have a problem with The Sims 3. I have a simple notebook with an Intel HD 4000 that offers good performance on The Sims 3 (at least for me). However, when installing the expansion Pets, the game, after some time playing, closes by itself when opening the map. I saw that it is a problem related to deer, I don't particularly like them, so is it possible to prevent their generation or another possible cause for this problem?

How much RAM does your laptop have?

Always do your best.

you can use nraas register's animal control to disable deer. but 6 GB is not going to run well with more expansions.

Game can use max 3.2GB ~ 3.5. your OS and other processes is going to take another 1-2GB and your Intel HD, assuming med setting or lower approx 300-500mB. And winOS swap file triggers at 1GB limit.

so you're looking at...

Best case say game runs at 3GB + 1GB OS + 0.3GB vram + 1GB swap limit = 5.3GB. But it is unlikely.

Most likely, 3GB game + 2GB OS + 0.3GB vram + 1 GB swap = 6.3GB

Worst case, 3.2GB + 2.5GB OS + 0.5GB vram + 1 GB swap = 7.2GB

That is, if you only play the game, no web surfing.

Sanity is overrated.

Nitromon is a type of Pokemon encountered in the Pokemon Nitrome Version series.

There. Mystery solved.

I made some optimizations on my notebook, so the performance of games like The Sims on it is very good.

I run The Sims 3 with Chrome when I need to download worlds to put in my game, I usually have no problems. Problems only start after a while playing live (when Pets spawns deer).

Do you know how to disable deer by nrass? I looked, but I didn't find it.

Nrass Register is what you need
I believe the path is
Nrass/Register/Animal Control/Change the values to 0 for what you don't want in your game.
