Re: Weird lag in build/buy mode and sometimes in Live Mode too

★★★ Novice

i'm having the same problem but worse and mostly in live mode, as in your video i have lag when moving around and when i attempt to switch sims. also when i try to get my sims to do actions (eg, cooking, sleeping) it takes ages to load up the different options and usually freezes in game. i have a small amount of cc in my game but not much compared to people with a lot of cc and their game seems to work fine. if anyone could help me this would be appreciated. thank you.

I have been having recent issues with my game lagging when I switch to build mode and back to live mode. Another issue I have is when I am trying to travel inviting others with me it is only letting me click on one sim in my friends list. PLease fix this bug.

@abc1381541026 In this topic: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-PC/CURRENT-ISSUE-Incredibly-Low-FPS-when-connected-to-Int...

you'll see a lot of options for attempts. the attempt I used was Attempt #5 which is also the attempt that worked!
You need to go into Device Management in your PC. From there, you'll want to go to your Network Adapters.

From here, you'll choose the PCIe adapter that you use. It can be one from Realtek, but also one from Intel. In my case, it was labled as an Intel Ethernet Connection I219-V. So I googled on that one rather than the one from my motherboard.

Download the latest drivers, install them for your Ethernet connection, restart PC and try troubleshooting again!

In my case (so far) no problems anymore with lag in B/B mode.

@JeanVW  I'm not sure this approach would be any benefit to @abc1381541026, who has an HP laptop that may block the installation of any non-HP-approved drivers.  You can see a dxdiag on the laptop here:

I'm about to answer there, but the errors in the dxdiag are mostly system issues that need to be addressed.

I dont know if having an HP laptop affects the way LAN drivers are installed, I'm merely trying to find a solution.

I'm having the same issue lots of people here are having, everything ok during live mode, constant 60fps on ultra settings, then as soon as I go into build mode it drops to about 10fps. When I go back to live mode if I click on the 3 dots to open the menu it goes back to 60fps and continues playing fine.

@Helithe  You could try step 5 here:

It seems to work for some people who have the same fps drop you've described.

I'm having the same problem. I took out my mods, repaired my game, made sure I have a strong internet connection, cache and cookies were cleared when the Patch launched on June 4th, and I only use this laptop for minimal internet browsing (Google, Facebook, Sims Forums) and Sims 4 so I have no other impeding software. I have all the packs and I use a PC that meets all of the required and recommended specs.

 

I click on a sim for their menu, lag

Click another sim, lag

Laptop, lag

The ground, lag

 

It's becoming annoying, I feel like I can't play my game because I'm constantly waiting for it to load.
