Hello,

No problem, the word Overwatch in that topic is a link. If you
go there, scroll down a little and click on the "base mod" for patch level 1.31-1.33. It'll start downloading when you click it, should be done before you know it.
These are installed as described on this page.
Back up your saves before installing mods of any kind though, you never know. Just copy the saves folder from My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.
Overwatch will take care of those vehicles and stuck sims.

Well having a house that size, and that many sims would give a lot of games lag. I don't ever have more than 2, maybe 3 floors, and try not to have over 5 sims, including their pets.
So I would recommend trying to play with a smaller family and house/lot, and see if that helps at all.

Hello,

After you applied the Sunset Valley fix, did you clear the caches as the post at modthesims says?

Hello,

The only fix to that problem - as far as I remember from past experience - is just not using that function. Don't ALT+TAB out of the game. You can try playing in windowed mode. Maybe even temporary, until you've done your stuff and then switch back to fullcreen.
