Suddenly lagging game

[ Edited ]

I have been playing the Sims 4 for several months without any issues on my Mac. I know that my laptop can handle the game, but suddenly last week the game stopped working properly for no reason. I can get the game to launch (after lengthy loading screens), but it lags so badly that it is not playable. I have done all of the general suggestions such as lowering all the graphics settings, playing in windowed mode, but nothing works. I have no mods on my game and 100 GB of storage left on my laptop.


UPDATE: I moved my Sims 4 folder to try and see if the game would work normally with a new game and it did! How can I pinpoint what is causing the issue on my old save files? I would hate to lose everything. 


Here are my computer specs:


Mac OS Catalina

Version 10.15.2

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015)

Processor: 2.7 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5

Memory: 8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3

Graphics: Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB




Thank you!!
