Same problem on my end.
FPS drops when entering and exiting buildbuymode.

Tested with new saves, with new Sims 4 folder, without mods/cc, with deleted cachefiles.
Happens all the time. Even with a blank tray folder

@pwcreations Yeah, there's currently a few threads (massive one in tech).

Leaving all separate for now.

I have the same issue. When going from live mode to build mode the game's frame rate drops. For me it works when going from live to build mode i save the game as soon as i enter build mode. At that moment the lag is gone.

I'm sorry i couldn't further test my game as i currently am very busy with college, but i remembered a detail that might help with reproducing the issue, the bug reported above can also potentially happen after having a sim snap a picture using the camera that you can buy in buy mode.

The lag does indeed occur when playing the game a little longer. I played again yesterday for a shorter time and there was no lag (I tried to uload the DxDiag but is says 'unsupported extension type')

I get massive lag from entering build/ buy mode and going back to live mode. I think some saves are more noticeable then others, haven't figured out a connection as to why that is.

 

They only thing to "fix it" is to click the settings (...) in the upper right hand corner and then esc. It clears the lag. Same for taking photos (meaning sims taking photos with an in-game camera). The game lags after the photo is taken and clicking the settings and esc help temporarily until they take another photo.
