Nothing to do with harddrive i know because i have over a tb of space yet i can sit here and run fallout 4 VR ( yes you heard) so this is not a pc issue it is the actual game causing the problems yet fallout 4 worst game ever IN VR Obviously running on a top notch gaming computer and yet here we still have the same problem with fps for the sims 4 like we did and have done for near on now 3 years . This is not a pc issue if it was I think id know this is a game issue and after the platform update well * we end up with bluescreen okay yeah they did sort that when they could be ahhem ..... arsed but to constantly rip people of like this is surely against consumer rights correct me if I'm wrong I'm so done with sims 4 if I can sit here gladly play fallout 4 VR
Considering we all know that fallout four runs complete and utter * even in normal controller /monitor. Yet I dont have a problem in vr version of Fallout 4 yet sims 4 quote supposedly to be able to work on lower end machines still has this issue after 6-7 years wow errrm anyone seeing a pattern here with ea lool this company are a joke they rip people off take their money charge 35 quid a pack then dont bother to do nothing about it and they just let people who've payed 35 quid a pack suffer for two weeks when ea decide they want to get their fingers out their arses nooooo not ea they just sit there an wait for two weeks while the cash roles in and everyone ends up with a 35 quid game they can not play whoot wtg ea lool its not pc problems its lazy * volunteers their now recruited because it costs them less and no wonder two of the most popular gurus left 3-4 weeks ago hmmm whys that then because they know the game has gone to * since origin.

@nrtmv2Sadly not. I reinstalled my Sims 4 last evening and wanted to play now. Playing on a 2k resolution on mid to high with 144fps but i only get 15 to 30 fps.
What i can suggest is: Update all Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable from 2015 to the current build 2019 ( https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads ) and DirectX is getting updated by Windows 10 itself. So no worries about that. ( https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/179113/how-to-install-the-latest-version-of-directx )
Im playing The Sims since Sims 3 and i can not believe that those issues still exist :D
EDIT: So i deleted everything that was related with Sims. I updated BIOS, Graphics driver, Mc Visual C++ Redist and reinstalled The Sims 4 again. Now i get to ~70 to 80 FPS. The game was released 2014.. im not happy.
Me too, I have a ryzen 2600, GTX 1070ti, and I still get 1 fps.
WE PAID 600$ USD, and EA CAN'T fix it !!!!
Please EA fix it.
I try EVERYTING
@brubruQC1998 Does this only happen when your computer is connected to the internet, or do you also get low fps with no connection? If the problem only happens with an internet connection, you could try these steps:
It may also help to use CCleaner (perhaps more than once) to clean out temp internet files.
@brubruQC1998 Then unfortunately you may need to play with no internet connection. I don't know of another way to solve this issue.

This is ridiculous.
I'm getting drops from 144 to 20 during gameplay. My computer is more than capable of handling this game.
We shouldn't be expected to do these "fixes" like clearing internet files, updating LAN drivers OR disconnecting from the internet. The game should just WORK without us having to do anything. We pay enough for it.
Edit: Just for your information, my Realtek driver is the latest and my temp internet file is already set to 330MB so please don't advise I try these "fixes". Also, the frame drops are there despite being connected to the network or not. Yes, I completely unplugged my Ethernet cable. Drops are still there when panning around or if certain events happen. This is a new build of Windows, all updates installed, all settings set to max performance etc etc. No reason for these drops whoever. Just a bugged game running on old Direct X 9.
It's extremely frustrating. I have rebuilt my PC several times to no avail. It's not a PC issue its a game issue. EA seriously need to sort this out.
