Hi there! Smile

So, are you sure that this problem started with Island Paradise? It didn't happen before? 
Is your game already updated to 1.67?
And do you have any Mods or CC?

Hello,


That looks to me like something related to your system's performance. Is your computer strong enough to handle the game ? Also, does it matter when you lower all your graphics settings, at least a little bit ?

Plus, try defragmenting your hard-drive too, and then re-boot the computer. After that, re-start the game and see if you notice any differences. Good luck for now ! And keep us posted. Smile

Hi again. Smile

Do you have Gamebooster already? You can find it here:
http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html

It may help with the performance of the game, as TS3 is very resource-hungry. Also, did you follow Carlos' advice and tried defragmenting your hard drive?

Besides, and if nothing works, why do you need o "fast-forward" in-game ? You may want to try avoiding this, if really nothing works.

*sigh* yup well what i did was added someone to my family Via: testingcheatsenabled true by clicking on a random person and adding to family. and it worked for a couple hours no clitching nothing. and now that i made a resort yup did it again. and now that ( since my house is like really tiny) i was building a new one and for some reason it stoped working as i can still click on things but wont pop up and that cyrcle thing like its loading is the only thing on there. so yup took me 2 hours to build my house and now idk what to do. my computers running fine and i use that game booster nothing seems to be working.

I'm not sure if I understood correctly, but your problem is that your game is lagging during live mode and build mode, even when not in speed 3? I suggest you take a look in here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4692-game-lag-possible-fixes

I hope I got what you meant. Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

EDIT: After a session of TeamViewer, where I applied the 4GB Patch, added the game properly to Gamebooster, and installed Overwatch and ErrorTrap, the issue seemed to get better.

YourDeadlysin6654, please let us know if you consider that the problem is solved now, so we can close the topic. Smile

So you really tried everything we suggested so far ? Do you have similar problems, with other games/software too ? 


//EDIT

Also, try re-patching the game and re-applying the Ultimate fix. So...repeat the steps from #2 to #4 here:

Is there another solution for those boring sequences when we want the things to happen quickly than changing the speed to 2, 3 or 4 (that's what I understand for fast forwarding, anyway)?

Maybe you should turn the animation smoothing on, it helps a bit, but I survive with this issue since the first sim ever came to the face of the earth...

Hey Sven,


Good question ! But I personally only use this "fast forwarding" - VERY rarely. When all of my sims are asleep at the same time (which happens rarely, lol), I leave the game at normal speed, and do other stuff around the house, like a bit of cleaning up (with testingcheatsenabled true, you can shift + click on stuff, to delete it, like dirty laundry/dishes, etc.).
