Just to clarify for anyone who might want to help, @gracieandholly doesn't have an Alder Lake CPU. We're working on the separate issue in a separate thread.
Hey, @Miaa245 , thank you so much for the script, it works! I'm probably being dumb but how do I get it back to using all of my CPU cores after the game is launched? It's too laggy for me to play at the moment.

@x-Sakaeru-xWell >_< the script is supposed to activate all the processors once the game is running, at least that's what it does for me. Upon further googling.... I think that last line will only set the affinity for 24 processors, and if you have fewer, maybe it doesn't work.
Edit: ok nvm, I changed the original post with a new script. Please let me know if it works for you.
@Miaa245 Thank you so much for the script! This community is amazing. It works perfectly now that it activates all cores again :D What a happy new year!
@Miaa245 many thanks for this solution, worked perfectly fine for me!
However, the game crashed afer about 1 hour to the desktop without error message and this 2 times. May it be possible that happens due to the same issue (I think not, but could be that someone who used this solution got the same problem)?
Again thank you for your help!
@figimi Sims 3 crashes for a lot of reasons, so I'd still look into those: mods and custom content, playing in a broken or overly complicated world, that sort of thing. If you want help troubleshooting the crashing issue, please create your own thread and post a dxdiag.
