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!

SimmytheSim for the original mod

This works so well!

Anyone know any mod that fixes T-posing at stairs? This mod did reduce the amount of T-posing I got, but didn't remove it completely.

Default Error logs, error logs everywhere
Hi!

Thank you for updating this mod! I'm experiencing a repeating error log. I tried looking into the lastException, and I noticed reference to autonomy. Among the mods I'm using is MCCC, disabling some autonomous actions from the config file for that mod. I am posting this specifically because another user had mentioned an error when running this with MCCC (though I'm happy to hear it sounds resolved for them) and wonder if anyone has some insight.

Despite that error log, the mod seems to work? It ran without sims lagging, but the error log is too intrusive for me to ignore lol (and obviously something is not right)
Download - please read all instructions before downloading any files!

Hi, I am aware of this problem and am trying to find a fix as it's been occurring in my game myself. I'll upload an update once I resolve this.

That is part of the mod, yes.
Why do you think it is not needed?

I have recently ben experiencing lag issues, and I thought this mod could help me, but nothing happened. I have also never used a mod so it is possible that I did not install it correctly. So just to clear things we just extract all files into the mods folder, even the one that says scripts, because i just copied thme directly into the folder I dont know if that is the correct way of doing it

You're not alone! Seems like it doesn't work for me either, although I'm sure I installed it correctly.
