UPDATE 11-9-2017: Updated for 1.36. Please redownload.

UPDATE 11-8-2017: the latest patch (1.36) broke quite a lot of mods, including this one. The good news is EA fixed the time rolling back bug. The bad news is the Simulation Lag could possibly still be there. For now, please just insert the tuning file (the .package one) in your Mods folder while I test out the script.

UPDATE 11-1-2017: Did a few more tweaks to tone down some of the time lag. Please redownload v1.8.
UPDATE 10-21-2017: PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE MOST STABLE VERSION, which v1.6! 1.7 was an experimental fix which didn't really work. I will update this for Cats and Dogs, if needed.

UPDATE 10-02-2017: I made an adjustment to the script file that should (hopefully) alleviate the time lags. Please download version 1.7, unless you encounter more issues. In which case, download version 1.6.

This is an update to SimmyTheSim's Simulation Lag Fix to the latest patch.

As per SimmyTheSim's description:

"This mod alters the game's simulation so that sim autonomy does not cause massive simulation lag in instances where there are many autonomy requests.

This should eliminate, or at the very least, alleviate, the following problems:
sims head bobbing, sims doing nothing for a few hours, time slowing down on Speed 3, and time going back to the past."


Differences from the old mod:
  • The MAX_TIME_SLICE_MILLISECONDS variable is now a tunable XML in the latest version
  • Only two Python functions are overridden.

COMPARISONS:

Before


After


ISSUES:
  • Some head-bobbing activity might still be present, but it should be way less than before
  • Times sometimes still rolls back from "ultra speed mode" (when all sims are either out or sleeping). Still trying to figure out how to fix this.

Resources
This mod overrides the following python functions:
time_service.TimeService.start
time_service.TimeService.update

It also overrides the following XML values:
03B33DDF!00000000!2BE55516548A9522.time_service.Tuning

INSTALLATION
Unzip the mod files into your mods folder. Make sure script mods and custom content is enabled in your game!

Basic Download and Install Instructions:
1. Download: Click the File tab to see the download link. Click the link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.
Read the upload description for installation instructions. If nothing else is specified, do the following:
No Extraction Required (Script Mods):
1. Cut and paste the .zip file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
  • Windows Vista/7/8/8.1: Users\(Current User Account)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
Script mods need to be placed directly in \Mods or one level below that (e.g. \Mods\Scripts) – sub-folders nested any deeper won’t work.

2. Cut and paste the .package file(s) into your Mods folder
  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\
