Islo Paradiso is fun with the house boat thing on the water, yes, but not being on the water helped me... i returned to the dock and i didnt really get lag for a while...

the problem that is happening is that sims 4 came out so the makers aren't making any more updates on the sims 3 and the sims 3 is bugged right now.I'm getting the same problem it keeps pausing every 45 seconds and it's really making me mad. so really there are ways to make it better but no way to stop it. Im probable gonna get sims 4 because I love the sims and I don't wanna stop playing it. I hope I could help you outStandard smile

After browsing so many threads and forums on this freezing issue and trying many methods, which i wasted a whole night doing, all i had to do was change my framerate from default to 60. It worked for me hopefully it works for you :/

My game does exactly the same thing, changed my frame rate and that didnt make it better at all. So annoyed because I love the expansion pack!

Make sure you have nothing running in the background and no peripherals, liked a phone or MP3 player, plugged in to your system.  Windows will stop pr5ocessing the top program to check on the peripherals every minute or two - it is really annoying.

I also had the same
What worked for me is
Right click on the sims 3 in the origin app and select repair
Hope it will work with you
I have 4 gbs of ram and a core i7
I have all the expansions but into the future and im in the ip world
The game is working ok now
