If you'd like to find out, this site will give you details on how your graphics card, along with the rest of your system, measures up for the sims. Smile

Thanks a lot! That's a very useful site Very Happy

Then I don't have anymore than just one small thing that have been a bit of a problem, but should I still discuss it in this topic or start a new one?

Ok great Smile

I noticed an odd thing while my sim was in the garden and was taking care of the vegetables. Sometimes the sim just took care of one plant, and then the icon disappeard, even if you had given something elso to do.
But usually the sim "works" normally (takes care of all the vegetables, apple trees etc. that needs care taking).

Normally, the sim should take care of all the plants that needs attention, not just one plant, right? So it's really annoying when you have to click at each plant, one at the time, so that you get all the crops picked up.

Hello,

If you're using mods, try gardening without your mods. Though I have to wonder if your sim is absent-minded because then it would make sense that the action gets cancelled once in a while.

Ok, i'll try that then... And my sims isn't absent-minded, so I don't think it got to do with that. Maybe the mods are affecting.

I think I remember somebody else having this issue after installing Seasons. So it may be something that needs a new patch.

It didn't seem to make a such big difference to play without the mods, because the gardening worked fine with the mods, and also without them, so I can't know where the problem is because gardening worked fine both ways, but still doesn't always work Ok with the mods.

Hello there,

Yes, sounds familiar indeed.
I think it's a bug that needs to be patched. But let's wait for Lady ElDi's reply.

All you can do for the gardening problem is wait until EA releases a game update.

Hi,

Well, there's one thing, but I'm not sure if you can help. It's about that when I buy for example an oven or a fridge, the game slows down a lot, it actually almost freeze. And this happens only when you want to buy a worksurface, fridge or an oven. And then I think there was one more object, I don't remember what it was. Something that belongs in the kitchen anyways.

Are all the objects doing this game-installed objects, or custom content? Or does it make no difference?

They've been both custom content and game-installed, doesn't make a difference.

Hello,

Ok, try it with a clean The Sims 3 folder. To do this, backup and remove the The Sims 3 folder from Documents\Electronic Arts and start a test game.

So do you mean that I have to copy the whole "The sims 3" folder from Documents\Electronic Arts backup it somwhere and then start a test game? But should I delete the test game after testing and then paste the backup again to it's belonging place?

Hello,

If it works better with a clean folder, it's best to only grab your saves, mods and downloads from the backup. Because it could be bad caches and if you copy the backup of the folder back, you're also copying the problem back.

Ok, I started the testgame, tested the objects and it worked Smile So now just copy and paste back (from the backup file) only the files: "mods" "saves" and "downloads" in the folder Documents\Electronic Arts\The sims 3?
But do I lose anything, if I paste back only those files?

Hello,

Start by testing again with all your mods in place, maybe there's a conflict there, if there isn't, you can go ahead and copy the saves and downloads to the new folder. You can also copy the DCCache folder to the new folder to test, but it may not work that way since one of those could be bad and causing the issue, in which case you have to reinstall all your sims3packs.

I tested with the mods, and the objects still worked fine. But the problem with the "gray lump"- objects began. And I noticed that the game also was a little slower this time.

Hello,

That's a result of playing with mods. It takes longer to load. The "grey lumps" are caused by the game taking some time to render the objects. it could also be mod/packages related and there's not much you can do.

Yes yes. It looks like I can now paste the saves and downloads to the new folders. But is it worthwhile to also put back the DCCache in the new folder? If I have to install all the sims3packs again, there will be a lot of work with that then : (
