TS4 Loading Times REVEALED!
“One of the biggest downsides in The Sims titles has always been their load times. Currently I could fire up my Sims 3 neighborhood and safely go AFK for about 7-15 minutes before I get in-game. During the demo (which was stressed to be played on the alpha version of the same live client that players will have) it was amazing to see the initial load of the game take about 30-60 seconds. Another load into a gym lot took maybe 15 seconds, which was a short load time but much different to experience after playing in The Sims 3's open world so much recently.
I’d much rather have some 15-60 second load times than a 10-minute wait to get into my game, so I’m completely fine with how this works out! A further Twitter response from Sims 4 Producer Sarah Holding about load times was that “when you’re traveling between lots you incur a short load. There is only one lot that’s ‘active’ at any single time.”
On The Sims forums, a poster named Cinebar recently inquired whether or not there are loading screens tied to these extra load times. The answer is yes – even though the load times are short, you can expect to see the normal Sims-style loading screens with their silly phrases such as “reticulating splines” and the like!”
I think I may start up a livestream for when I build/decorate lots or make sims. What do you think?
I had forgotten that I downloaded the penis sliders and was VERY CONFUSED when I went to make a sim.
Like or Reblog if you’re a simblr! I want to find new adorable simblrs!
if you’re comfortable, reblog and tell us what country/region you’re living in and/or from!
southeast united states but from los angeles, CA :)
Central Florida, USA
Southeastern Ohio, USA :)
Southern California, USA C:
I live in London, but am originally from the sunny central belt (Scotland. That’s in Scotland)
Southern Maine, USA!
Nothing makes me angrier than a lagging Sims game.
I can’t even move a single slider in CAS without it freezing. Ugh!
A place to find simblrs in your area! Just put your URL in the title and your hometown (no address). To add a marker go to additions > add marker - simple
This lovely dear made up a list for simblr meet ups and I wanted to add on to that this amazing site. I got the idea from a similar one about K-Pop fans but thought this would be great for the simblr community since we are so close knit! This way, you can find people in your area and easily meet up!
Nice!! I added me. :D
I added myself too :)
Very,very cool idea :D
Wow this is scary some of you guys live down the street from each other.
Meanwhile, Australia is home of the “even when we’re close on the map it’s hours of travel from each other” markers it seems.
I added myself … I’m so far away from everyone :(
Not from me! I live in Portland!!
Long time no see!
So I’m in my last semester of school which means zero time to play sims, especially since sims 4 is coming out later this year. Anyhow, I’m slowly starting to play again, though probably not to the same extent as I used to which is too bad. But I’ll try to be active here a little more? We’ll see!
