UPDATE 10-02-2017: I made an adjustment to the script file that should (hopefully) alleviate the time lags. Please download version 1.7, unless you encounter more issues. In which case, download version 1.6.

Some news: I currently have access for the pre-release version of MCCC (Patreon subscriber) and it seems like the exception errors are an MCCC issue (public release 3.7.0) as the pre-release version of 3.8.0 stopped the exception errors between this and MCCC. Until then, you may still encounter errors with this mod and MCCC 3.7.0, albeit much less than the previous version of this mod. My suggestion is to take out the lag fix or live with the exceptions until MCCC 3.8.0 is released.

UPDATE 06/09/17: Fixed constant exceptions bug. Please redownload.


This is an update to SimmyTheSim's Simulation Lag Fix to the latest patch.

As per SimmyTheSim's description:

"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, and time going back to the past."


Differences from the old mod:
  • The MAX_TIME_SLICE_MILLISECONDS variable is now a tunable XML in the latest version
  • Only two Python functions are overridden.

COMPARISONS:

Before


After


ISSUES:
  • Some head-bobbing activity might still be present, but it should be way less than before
  • Times sometimes still rolls back from "ultra speed mode" (when all sims are either out or sleeping). Still trying to figure out how to fix this.

Resources
This mod overrides the following python functions:
time_service.TimeService.start
time_service.TimeService.update

It also overrides the following XML values:
03B33DDF!00000000!2BE55516548A9522.time_service.Tuning

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

Basic Download and Install Instructions:
1. Download: Click the File tab to see the download link. Click the link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.
Read the upload description for installation instructions. If nothing else is specified, do the following:
No Extraction Required (Script Mods):
1. Cut and paste the .zip file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
Script mods need to be placed directly in \Mods or one level below that (e.g. \Mods\Scripts) – sub-folders nested any deeper won’t work.

2. Cut and paste the .package file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\


Need more information?
  • Anyone can use both .rar and .zip files easily! On Windows, use WinRAR.
  • If you don't have a Mods folder, just make one.
  • Mod still not working? Make sure you have script mods enabled
