|9th Oct 2005, 11:15 PM||paper boy & slowed down lots #1|
In some of my lots on various rare occasions, my paperboy keeps delivering newspaper over and over, he just stays on the lot and keeps delivering papers, my entire lot was filled with old newspapers in matter of sim minutes, and because of this problem, the entire lot is slowed down incredibly. The only way I was able to solve this problem was to get out of the game, delete the lot and use the new lot. This is really annoying since I use custom content, which means I have to re-decorate the entire lot again. This happened to me several times since I've installed Nightlife. I really hope I'm not alone with this annoying bug. I wish Maxis was aware of this real annoyance. I'm afraid to play!
Slowed Down Lots Problem:
Everytime I go into lots such as Londoste from Nightlife or the Monty(Romeo) family lot, the gameplay is immensely slow. It's so slow that by the time my sims are seated and ready to order at Londoste, the date is over! The time on the date passes regularly, but since the gameplay is so slow, it takes up so much time for my sims to sit down and order! For this problem, I've tried deleting the lot and using the backup, but it doesn't seem to work. For the Monty (Romeo) lot, I've used the method and that appears to have done the trick.
I'm so tired of these problems. I hope I'm not alone with these problems. I'm beginning to really hate playing sims, with bugs as annoying as these and gradually depleting the gameplay, how can I play? My pc specs and my graphics card are pretty high when it comes to the requirements to play (no gloating intended). The problem is ever since I've installed nightlife, all these bugs started appearing. It isn't the hacks. I've tested that. Nor is the custom content the problem. I really wish I knew the source of these bugs, it's a long shot, but I won't stop hoping for Maxis to be aware of these bugs.
