What is this?

If you're not already aware, broken spots in the routing is what causes Freezes and Lags in your game, as explained in Game Help:Intermittent Freezeswiki FAQ. To permanently solve this, the routing need to be repainted over in Create-A-World. This is the result of that exercise. You can find the full guide on how to use this in Game Help:World Routing Lagswiki.

So, here is the Moonlight file with the FIXED Resources imported, for people who don't want to mess with their files in S3PE.

What has been done?

Please read this download thread Resources for Moonlight's various Fixes for the stuff that has been done. It might even be worthwhile to take the time to read the Comments of that thread, especially if you encounter issues, just so you can check if it has been discussed and addressed before.


Heed that backup instructions in Game Help:World Routing Lagswiki, really! You've been warned!

How to install?

How to remove or restore the file before updating?
  • Just in case, but not really necessary, as per past experience with EA's patches.
  • Go to the path above
  • Delete the *.world file. Or if you want to reuse it after patching, rename it with a ".fixed" extension, so the filename becomes "Moonlight"
  • Rename the "*.orig" copy by removing the .orig extension (or from whatever you have renamed it to).
  • Delete caches before starting game. Game Help:Sims 3 Delete Cache Fileswiki


As always, feedback is welcomed.

Notes & Changelog:

As and when I get reports of any issues, or new spots, or patch changes (if any).
  • Made while on Patch 1.38. Would most likely be compatible with any patches in the future as well, as EA has never ever modified a .world file in the updates.
  • Confirmed Patch 1.39 has no changes for the Moonlight file, as predicted.
  • The fixes contain 34 modified resources, imported from the other download thread, including the
  • Would conflict with any other download that make changes to the .world file that changed the above named resources.

Alternate Download:
No multi-parts. Please feedback any issues on this thread as I log in to MTS more often than on Wordpress. This is an experiment; if the account gets flagged for high traffic and exceeds the allowed bandwidth, I have to take it down. So please do download from MTS as a first choice.
