Help! EIG keeps crashing.

So when I try to edit a lot and add a rabbit hole to it EIG crashes immediately. But when I was adding stairs and other plants to a different lot it was fine. Does anyone know a fix for this?

    I haven't got this far yet but may I suggest you "do" the rabbit hole bit first using the game and then save to library. Upload lot to world using EIG.

    EIG hasn't worked well for most since a patch a while back. There are some work arounds tho, like taking out your CC folder and store content while you work on your map in Caw.

    I had the same problem and took all my mods and downloads out, now the problem is solved. Good luck!

    is this thread still active? I spent 7 hours yesterday making a world but it crashed when I went to EIG. I will start fresh today with caution(save, back up, save) does it really work to take out all cc and mods?

    Yes, It does work best without CC or as little CC as you need. Plus, it works best without much Store- only install what you are going to use in the world and nothing more. :)

    @Rflong7 So I want to really put in Dragon Valley .pack stuff. Will that be okay and not make it crash? I'm making a Viking/historical world. So I need the look of the town buildings to fit.

    Hi :)
    I can't guarantee CAW won't crash (save ever 15 minutes if you have problems. More if you're doing a lot of terrain painting) but that doesn't sound like a lot of store stuff. I don't see a problem.

    Another question, sorry for the noobness :) but I have now managed to go into EIG in CAW. But I can't edge scroll... I can rotate around and go up and down but not sideways. This is really annoying since my world is built lower on the map and my view is stuck on a mountain.

    Is the option to edge scroll on?

    @Rflong7 Yes it was. I fixed it somehow and finally got the lots in.
