Hello,

 

I have noticed that after this last update some problems are emerging in my game. The Sims are not obeying the requested commands to the game (eg: Washing dishes, bathing and etc). The last time this problem happened, my sim was in her studio recording job, and when asked to do the commands to complete the job tasks she just stood there and did nothing. I had to use cheats to complete the tasks.

 

I do not use cc and I already repair the game on Origin.

@PlumbobEmotion Did you try all the suggestions in this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORK-IN-PROGRESS-Autonomy-and-Simulation-Lag/m-p/6918287

Did you try a new house to see if it was related to the house ? Different family ?

Are all Sims frozen or just the one you gave the command to ?

@crinrict All Sims, when this problem occurs with the sim that I'm playing it affects the other sims in the world and also that those are in the same place as my sim.

@PlumbobEmotion Sounds like a lockup then.

Does it appear for EVERY single interaction you try or just some of them ? If so, which ones lockup your game

There's a few known ones like automatic homework

Re: [WORK IN PROGRESS] Autonomy and Simulation Lag

★★★★ Novice

How long has this been an issue and it’s still not fixed?!

 

my game went from working perfectly fine to not going into ulta and bouncing back, then no longer bouncing back but not going into ulta, then recently not going into any speed higher than 2 and now it’s not going higher than 2 and my sim takes 2 sims hours between actions. 

 

I have no mods, 3 expansion packs and 1 game pack. 

 

This is a serious issue, they said they’re looking into it but for 2 years there’s still no fix... it’s really does ruin the game Frown

Please describe the patch or change you made. Latest patch

Not sure if items were added, or just already there and unlocked- but however the release was done it, and whatever things (items, new interaction, whatever you did) were added, this has made my game really, really laggy and choppy in build mode.

Please describe the patch or change you made. The latest patch... You know, the one that everyone is having issues with (patchpocalypse).

All my games are vanilla, been not wanting to play because of the new loading screen (I am having serious issues with dizziness and nausea from the screen movement). The games I have tested are all vanilla. ALways remove localthumcache. Have repaired game, and done all the usual.

 

We seriously need a way to roll back patches (return to a previous patch), because it seems that the team keeps breaking our games even more than they were already broken (doesn't look good people). This needs addressing badly.

@crinrict I never had lag issues until the patch. The 'solutions' don't work. This is a specific issue with the patch. I will repost a new thread.
