Simulation Lag Fix


This is an update to simmythesim's Simulation Lag Fix for the latest version of the game.
It was also previously maintained by Xerox on Mod The Sims, but they no longer are keeping it updated.

I have been updating the mod for quite some time now via the comments on Xerox's MTS page. But decided I should post it here so I do not forget to update it in the future.

I have not changed anything from the original mod, I simply just updated the python code and patched it for the most recent update for The Sims 4.

What does this mod do?


"This mod alters the game's simulation so that sim autonomy does not cause massive simulation lag in instances where there are many autonomy requests."

This should eliminate, or at the very least, alleviate, the following problems:

  • Sims head bobbing
  • Sims doing nothing for a few hours
  • time slowing down on speed 3
  • time going back to the past


Mod Explanation


This seems rather basic, but there's a video showing a scientist experimenting in GTW without the mod:



Here it is with the mod installed:



Everything runs much more frequently now, preventing the "bobbing head" effect. I haven't experienced any time rolling-back since I made the mod!

Resources

This mod overrides the following python functions:

  • time_service.TimeService.start
  • time_service.TimeService.update

INSTALLATION

Unzip the mod files into your mods folder.
Make sure script mods and custom content are enabled in your game!
