What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything up to and including the Décor To The Max kit.

Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now, I've removed them

Here is a video of the problem - it's never been an issue prior to this update for me. Now it's a constant thing and it's really creepy, lol.

 

I have all the DLC available for the game, and have tried with and without mods/cc.

 

Also including my DxDiag.

 

I am not experiencing the other lag issues as reported in the other thread.

I can confirm

been seeing this for a little while now.. 

to see the issue faster have 2 or more sims talking to each other then paused in the middle of it. their heads will keep turning very slowly like a clock whining down.

my save game is old like 1 1/2 years old,  so I built a new game folder to see if that would clear it up// nope same thing

Ok, here's my video clip. I'm on normal speed except at the very start while waiting for the 3rd sim to enter the conversation, then I slow it down to normal when they begin talking. It only started happening  after yesterday's patch. I've played this household for a long time and never noticed it prior to this. This is one my regular save files/main households. I'm not sure if I'm doing this right but here's a dropbox link:

I'm noticed it too, some sims move slightly, sims may even spin around, but it's not effecting gameplay, in-fact I quite like it, it's reminding me that my game hasn't frozen-up or anything.

And still happening after the hotfix. I was hoping this would be fixed in it too but it isn't.

 

You're right, it doesn't have to be on ultra speed, I tested it on all speeds and it happens no matter what speed you're playing on. Even after I uploaded that video the other day I had one happen a little later on where Mrs. Crumplebottom was hitting someone with her bag in slow motion at the romance festival. It was pretty funny, I wish I had recorded that instead. Large smile
