Default a possible way to solvetoo many mods causing the game running slow
I currently have around 900 mods (not include sims3pack format mods)

it takes me 5 mins to get into the game and once i get into the game, it starts to lag constantly and sometimes freeze for 2~3 secs.

I know it's because of too many mods (mainly clothes and hair) but I dont want to remove any of them..

so just wondering if there's a way to solve it without remove the mods.

actually I have an idea but i dont know if it works.

i found out that no matter how many sims3pack format mods you installed,
the game's still running flawlessly.

maybe it's because they combine all of the sims3pack format mods into one package file? so the game only needs to load one package file instead of loading the package files one by one like package format mods?

is it technically possible to combine all of the package format mods into one package file?

another dicovery...

sims3pack format mods are all installed and merge into dbc files under
Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\DCCache
which proove that i am right, but just dont know if it's possible to do this to package format mods....

even tho i know that it is not possible to convert package files to sims3pack files, but as long as there's a way to merge all the package files in to 1 or 2 package files or even dbc files...then it will work...

In order to better solve your problem, please go through the following as listed below:
