[NEEDS SAVES] [PS4] Severe FPS loss (Lagging) when entering/exiting Build Mode

[ Edited ]

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.27
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go into Build mode from Live mode.
What happens when the bug occurs? The game FPS drops dramatically and never recovers, even when switching back to Live mode.
What do you expect to see? A smooth Transition from live to build mode and no permanent FPS drops.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. 1.25/6/7

When entering build mode, often there is a serious FPS loss. The FPS never recovers, no matter how long you wait in build mode, and if you manage to get your cursor over to switch it back to live mode, the FPS loss is still there. You have to close the game and restart it to regain normal FPS.

 

This wasn't happening until the recent updates 1.25-1.27

 

Edit: Here's the link to the report from the console board. Game Constantly Lagging when I Enter Build Mode I had redirected users to make a bug report but they hadn't at the time of my making this report.

That any many other bugs I can't seem to get read of no matter how many times I restart reboot and rebuild data reinstalling the game it's like a never ending story

SIMS 4 lag during build mode

★★ Novice

Hey, I was wondering has there been a patch for the lag during the build mode or lag in general it’s so annoying. Especially when you’ve purchased packs.

@PoptartJuniper Okay thanks for that, your thread is very specific to what I was really trying to say and I really hope they fix this.

@PoptartJuniper But to keep from restarting the game when the FPS drops, just press the start button to display the menu and just press it again and that should make it go back to the normal FPS at least this is what works for me.

Game running slow on Build Mode -Sims 4 Ps4

★ Novice

The game is running extremely slow for me when I try to place items from my household inventory into my planter box to plant. The first time it’s quick, but every time after I have to wait like 2-3 minutes every time I select a plant, place it, then try to select another from a stack. It is very frustrating, and causing the gameplay to run slow for a few seconds after returning to live mode.

You can try bringing up the pause menu while in build mode for a second to clear the lag.
