Very slow on loading (Just installed sims 3 & all Expansion)

Post by LuciferShea on Sun 24 Feb 2013, 18:45

Just finished installing everything (Base game & all expansion) by following every single steps carefully. I entered the game and found out the loading is rather slow, sim require an hour to make (I'm slightly picky but the game lags every time I click different tab). When the base game recently came out, I already started playing on my old laptop and it runs smoothly even on high quality. Right now I have a new laptop that that also runs smoothly for the game but it started to lag after I updated the game to install Late night (when it recently came out) and I also added some cc. I haven't played it for like a few months and I thought I would give it a try again since I already formatted my laptop, installed the game and expansion but it still loads really slowly even though I didn't even add a single cc or mod.

My computer spec
CPU : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz
CPU Speed : 2.0 GHz

RAM : 8.1 GB
OS : Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (build 7600), 64-bit
Video Card : GeForce GT 540M
Video Ram : 4.0GB
Pixel Shader version:5.0
Free Disk Space : 98.5GB

(Is my computer spec suitable?)

I'm sure your computer is fine.
But with all the expansions connected within the game, and combined with your CC, the game has a LOT of data to load every time you click on a new tab.

My game doesn't take absurdly long, but with the amount of CC and all the expansions, my game takes about 10 minutes from the launch of the game to actual gameplay, and my sims take quite a while to make as well.

The more content you have, the more time it takes to load that content. It's not really your computer as much, although that does also play a factor. Your CPU is fine, which I'm pretty sure is what gets used when loading the data.

Every time you change a tab in CAS, your game has to pre-render each article of clothing that you can choose. It's normal to take a while with a lot of content.

Hello there,

Your PC looks fine, not great, but should do for The Sims 3.
