UPDATE 3-5-18: Autonomy lag should (hopefully) be fixed.

This is an update to SimmyTheSim's Simulation Lag Fix to the latest patch.

As per SimmyTheSim's description:

"This mod alters the game's simulation so that sim autonomy does not cause massive simulation lag in instances where there are many autonomy requests.

This should eliminate, or at the very least, alleviate, the following problems:
sims head bobbing, sims doing nothing for a few hours, time slowing down on Speed 3, and time going back to the past."


Differences from the old mod:
  • The MAX_TIME_SLICE_MILLISECONDS variable is now a tunable XML in the latest version
  • Only two Python functions are overridden.

COMPARISONS:

Before


After


ISSUES:
  • Some head-bobbing activity might still be present, but it should be way less than before
  • Times sometimes still rolls back from "ultra speed mode" (when all sims are either out or sleeping). Still trying to figure out how to fix this.

Resources
This mod overrides the following python functions:
time_service.TimeService.start
time_service.TimeService.update

It also overrides the following XML values:
03B33DDF!00000000!2BE55516548A9522.time_service.Tuning
03B33DDF!00000000!143F98639E4FDED3.autonomy.autonomy_modes

INSTALLATION
Unzip the mod files into your mods folder. Make sure script mods and custom content is enabled in your game!

Default What Did Ea Do Now?
So, reading through these comments it seems I am not alone with my recent issue. After the latest update my Sims just stand around, NPCs and active Sim. Working in the hospital my Sim wont do anything I tell him to do. Working the veterinarian, same thing....Sims just dont do anything. I did remove what little CC I have and it worked fine, so not sure what the deal is.

I will try this mod and see if it helps any.

So, this mod seems to have sims on spa lots freeze. I haven't done a complete vanilla test on this, but removing the mod fixed the problem. Possibly it was a conflict with something else, but I haven't noticed the head-bobbing elsewhere, so my game is going to be lag-fixless for now.

Mods rock my sox.

Currently, this mod decreases your performance (noticeable shuttering on low-end machine), but also improve your sim's autonomy a bit (respond time, interaction, and filling needs). No bugs or conflicting so far.

I've been seeing some pretty serious lag in some cases after installing the mod. The most note able had been the city living world. Most recently I joined the Science career and am seeing a lot of lag while at that lot. I saw this in the exception log
File "clayifiedsims_simulationfix.py", line 28, in update&#13

I don't know if that may be an indicator of the problem or if another problem caused that to be added to the log.

Sad but it's true. I have a serious simulation problem with this mod 2. Hope it will be updating as soon as possible.

I've been getting that LE, too. And when I have my sims do yoga, they just stand on the mat, bobbing their head.

Hi, I'm still testing out if the sim lag will be reduced with just the tuning mod. Not sure if the script mod is still needed

I've installed this mod on the latest update & with seasons. After few hours of playing I've had only 1 LE so far, but not really sure if its caused by this mod. Certainly I feel difference with and without this mod, so I can say its working and didnt caused any problem in my game.

Yay, you're alive and active! Yes, please: hopefully it'll be done soon, because damn... I don't know about others but I can't live without your mod. ^^;
