Hi again,
I certainly don't think SIMS is to blame - I seriously think you
ought to check out the condition of the hard drive - move to at least Mac
OS 8.1 or higher & back to SIMS 1.8b8
Maybe something is corrupted within the OS itself in the System Folder.
Also, has the drive started to run out of space?

Bye for now, Terry Allen
