This is an update to simmythesim's Simulation Lag Fix for the latest version.

As simmythesim's post description of what it does:

"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.

Mod Explanation

This seems rather basic, but here's a video showing a scientist experimenting in GTW without the mod...



here it is in game working as of 8-26-18:



Everything runs much more frequently now, preventing the "bobbing head" effect. I haven't experienced any time rolling-back since I made the mod!

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

INSTALLATION


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


Additional Credits:
simmythesim for the original mod.

If this works, that's awesome. I've noticed all those things that you mentioned, but I didn't know what caused it.

Hey there, i am a bit confused. The ts4script only contains py Files. Don't the Game need pyo Files? Did that change?

The replay version of SimmyTheSims by duderocks is redone with the .pyo, it would be nice to know if everything is correct for this new version. Your reaction concerns me because the other cover of this script is well done as you say. Thanks for keeping us informed, this script is super useful when it works well.

I'm sorry everyone, I had uploaded the wrong one before I compiled. If you had any problems with it, it should be working now. Again, I am very sorry!

A big thank you for this fix. I use your script alone, I have the game speed changed to 100, I already have a personal mod that changes the 'AUTOMATED_RANDOMIZATION_LIST', the slice change to 17 does not go with a modified game speed, so, I leave the EA version which is 33. My interactions are fluid and synchronized with your stabilized script, thanks for that.

I was just looking into fixing this earlier this week, but I am still not very familiar with python, cest la vie. What I came across in research, from the original mod 2 years ago was that EA removed the functions this referenced? I'm probably totally wrong about that but thanks a ton! My game has been practically unplayable because of lag issues for over a month.

It downloaded and opened fine for me. Maybe try again? Maybe your internet (or modthesims's internet) was having issues when you were trying before so the file was maybe getting corrupted?

I just tried, it seemed to open fine for me. Maybe try to re-download it again, like @Paeonia said.

Do you have a program that can extract the files in a .rar archive then?

Same, but updating my 7zip fixed the problem.
