I have windows 7 64 bit 16gb or ram and 3.50ghz processor and the new expansion is lagging pretty bad. I have tried looking at the forums but have found no answers. Sorry if I posted an already asked question. Thanks for any help you can give.

Do you have any mods? or any custom content at all. I have no mods on my game but I did have something from the exchange and I tried removing that but I havent been able to test it to see if that was why it was lagging.

I had the same massive lag issue that made me hate Island Paradise. I did exactly as benny1983uk indicated above. In addition, I used "gamebooster" and I was still lagging. Then I noticed it is not the expansion pack itself(which causes the lag), but the massive map of Isla Paradiso. Just yet I've discovered something that reduces this lag in a great deal. For this:
1- Get "Error Trap" and "Overwatch" from -Nraas- (place them into Mods/Packages of course)
2- Start a new game when you run the game(Do NOT use your old savegame).
That's all. I hope I could be helpful.

Try resetting all your Sims in your town with the cheat resetsim *.
You might have a stuck Sim somewhere

I thought it might have been a stuck sim too, so I did resetsim * did nothing.
It sometimes works for all of an hour sim time but here is still massive lagging. I'm thinking I'm going to have to abandon this world and go back to another town until there's some sort of patch.

I have no custom content and dont even know what mods are. I just know that since I installed the expansion I have stopped playing because its so frustration.
