No imporvement in graphics here. Maybe Pets automatically set your graphics to high, when you may have had them on low. I've noticed that my game runs amaxingly faster though! I can visit community lots!!

Yeah... alright, you can PM me to request a house I suppose... Might take a while though as forewarning...

My game is a little faster, but I still can't use community lots (but I'm not bothered).

I know the feeling, but there are many threads on how terrible the pack is, so I'm not gonna clog up this one. I haven't noticed graphical difference, as I said, but I still have CC enabled. The speed may have soething to do with it being on DVD not a CD. (In my case anyway)

Same here. After FFP and Pets my game is running amazing, which is weird. You think it'd be slower with more stuff on the computer.

I noticed with this pack they kept all my setting on high. When i updated with all the other EPs, it always reverted back to 'normal'. I also noticed with this expansion that the neigborhood automanticly shows now.. I didnt' set it that way!

Neighborhood automatically shows? What do you mean?

Cheeseisgood, you beat me to it by a few seconds!

Since I don't yet have Pets, I was wondering the same thing.

I think they mean that neighbor's houses automatically show up while on a specific lot, not sure though.

Mine are the same, can't say I've seen a change either way but since all graphics settings both in the game and my computer are as high as possible, I'd need a new card for them to get any better. lol

However the loading times *are* faster. I've noticed that from the begining.

I did. But then again I used to play on a laptop where my game was super slow and when I put Family Fun Stuff on all my houses blinked red because my video card wasn't good enough.

My graphics have always been exceptional so I wouldn't say they've improved at all. I probably won't see any improvment until they're midway through next gen card lines ;p

I really haven't paid enough attention to see if stuff is loading faster though.

Maybe she only has one neigborhood. So now instead of having to pick it, the game already throws her into that neigborhood becasue it's the only one.

I don't see any graphical improvement

And, I think the performance dropped after Pets was installed. XD

The game will be frozen 2-3 seconds, when a sim or a pet passes by.

Sort of annoying.

However, if the same sim or pet comes to the lot the second time, it won't be frozen.

Thats cause the gam loads the pet or sms file into the RAM to make it slightly faster.
