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!

Hi, what are the specs of your computer? I've been testing this mod extensively and use it currently in my game with no issues at all so if you can give me as much information it will be much appreciated.

Uh... I never got a chance to try this before but seeing it now is shocking. The game has become such a frustrating and tedious experience to play and if it's already been fixed by modders twice, why hasn't EA done anything about it? It's so smooth now that sims aren't constantly derping out for hours at a time

It might be a stupid question, but will it still work if I have an older game version?

Thank you so much for this! My game was becoming unbearably slow until I put this mod into my game! There is still small amounts of lag, but it is way better than it was before. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
