Lag Due to Other Lots in Neighbourhood
★★★ Apprentice

A couple of weeks ago, I asked for help with lag I was experiencing in Del Sol Valley that was impacting my homes in The Pinnacles. I have three separate (though related) families living on the three lots and had noticed a drop in frame rate when moving the camera in specific directions at ground level (but when I tilted the camera towards the ground even slightly, the frame rate returned to 60fps). Since then, I have narrowed it down to the fact that whenever the camera moves in the direction of another lot, the frame rate drops.


I have:


==> removed all mods


==> repaired the game nine or ten times


==> upgraded my OS to Windows 11


==> created 'new' saves thrice via 'save as'


==> created new folders seven or eight times


==> upgraded all drivers


==> spoken to Microsoft AND HP in order to determine that it wasn't my computer at fault (a gaming laptop I bought brand new in Sept 2020 - 1TB SSD (200gb of which is free), 8GB RAM)


Nothing worked.


When I finally decided to remove two of the lots, the frame rate issue fixed itself. I removed all mods first and replaced them gradually, a few at a time, just to be sure, before finally playing with all my mods. No frame rate issue. 


I then downloaded my 64x64 lot from the gallery and placed it in game. The frame rate issue on the Ward Den lot returned. The second I moved the camera in the direction of the lot (at ground level), frame rate dropped. When moving the camera tilted towards the ground even slightly, the issue disappeared again (as previous).


The three lots are on the gallery under 'BansheeHVO' and do not contain CC.


I cannot think of why this is happening. I didn't have this issue until late last month and had been playing with my latest lot for at least a couple of weeks prior to that. 


I would really appreciate some help with this. I have no idea what to do now. The only solution I can conceive of is to move all my sims to a new save, but as I am making this a generational save, it contains at least thirty sims - most of whom are related. The nightmare it would be to have to repair all relationships is just... I'd rather treat that as a last resort.
