How to speed up my game play?

Post by chikabow on Mon 16 Feb 2015, 16:59

I've had Sims 3 (for the 4th time, since I decide it takes too much space and uninstall it).
Now I have 1.67 patch and I am not sure if that is the reason why my game is so incredibly slow!

I have CC (both .package and sims3pack files), but I have had a lot more and game worked fine.
I have a couple of ExP's.

Is there any way I can boost the speed of my game? It freezes VERY often, most of the time and opening some section while building something takes AGES. Plus, to get to the game itself, it usually takes up tp 1,5 hours to open it and for it to finish loading.

Should I and is there any way to change back to patch 1.64?
Please HELP! I use Sims 3 only for building houses.

Thank you!

Hello chikabow,


If your Windows is a 64-bit version AND if your computer has 4 GB of RAM or more, then focus in particular on the "4 GB patch" from here.


After downloading, double-click on that 4 GB patch and in the next prompt, choose the TS3W.exe in your base game location. Usually, that's C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Wait for the message "executable successfully patched" and close the 4 GB patch.

Note that this method will not work if your Windows is a 32-bit version and/or if your computer has fewer  than 4 GB of RAM. After doing that, go on with the rest of the steps. These instructions should be pretty self-explanatory.

Now go to (My) Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete all contents inside the Currentgame.sims3 folder. Also, in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, delete the following stuff:


-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"



Re-start the game then and see if anything improved. You may even turn off your anti-virus program completely before playing The Sims 3. Also, have you also heard about the tool "GameBooster", which can help you improve your system's performance ?   Look at the guide here:

That's it for now. Good luck and keep us posted !
