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!

That is so annoying. It literally takes hours to have a Sim decide to go potty train a toddler, who by that time has used their diaper.

I'll give this version a try but the original version by the original author made my game worse, not better (before it was broken with a later patch). I have a high end gaming PC with a 4 GHz Quad-Core Core I7 processor, 64 GB RAM and a 980 GTX Nvidia card with 6 GB VRAM running Windows 10 64-bit (fully updated). I'll report back on how it goes. I'm afraid I'm not very optimistic. I run very large neighborhoods with 200+ custom Sims with large homes and lots of visiting Sims.

Has anyone experienced any conflict with this mod and MC Command Center? I just started getting script errors for the first time ever after installing this mod..and it's the only mod I have installed other than MCCC.

Can you show me your exception log files? I use this with MCCC with no issues, so I want to check where the error is coming from.

Thank you for your efforts but like the original mod this version makes my game lag 300% more than it did before. I uninstalled it and everything is back to normal. Like I mentioned in my previous post I have a high end gaming PC. This mod may help those running the Sims 4 on a laptop or old computer but my hardware isn't lacking. The only time I do lag is when I have 30+ custom Sims (with lots of cc) on a lot at the same time. Hardware, CPU power, or memory isn't my problem. Thank you for trying though!
