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

[ Edited ]
Champion

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.



I don't work for EA. I'm a player helping other players.
