So I start my game normally, and as I play, it runs smoothly until after a few minutes of game-play my sims become jumpy or if I tell them to do something; they walk towards it, disappear in front of the object, then right back to where they last took their steps. (Instant Transmission). So I often ignore this until later after a few more minutes I would enter build/buy mode and after entering live mode again the music from build/buy mode plays continuously. And when I try to select an option, it jumps through them so fast or jumps around and you can't make a choice at all. (At first, I thought it was my cursor speed or acceleration but it isn't).

Then I restarted my system and turned the Sims back on and began a new game and when in CAS you can't switch cursors, It glitches after doing the sims name and trait picking and when you press start the start menu doesn't go away no matter how many buttons you mash).  

 

Thanks for listening to my complaints! 

Happy Simming!

Another issue is that I can't scold my adopted pets for misbehavior, it doesn't show up for anything they do.

I also have that "instant transmission" issue. They definitely teleport back and forth a lot.

Yeah, it's crazy, that's how my game started and day by day it became more and more unplayable.

Same, my CAS can't really switch between cursors, and a section is always highlighted. I also have sims walk over to something jump to something else and/or freeze. It only goes away when I open and close the gallery

1.13 has just been absolutely brutal in terms of performance. Every day, it gets harder to play.
