Hey Esther did you do a resetSim * on the town?  You could have some weird routing causing issues.

Yes I did. I played a little while last night and it seems to come and go. I reset the town several times. I'm thinking of packing him up and moving to SV, but he's level 9 in the singer career and I'm trying to make it to level 10 before moving.

Every time I've played in Starlight Shores the game has become impossibly laggy in about the second week.  Last time I tried, the game was pausing every 10 minutes (game time).  Resetting provides a temporary, very short-term fix only.  I've pretty much given up on trying to play in that town.

Sounds like SS is as bad as BP! Ah well, I know he will keep his career and skills so I might just get him and his family out of there.

Starlight Shores (Snores) played without a glitch until maybe like 10 weeks in for me (Or two generations of Sims, however long that may be.)

Interesting.  I'd sure like to know what makes the same town behave so differently in different peoples' games.  I have a new, very powerful computer, so I know that isn't the problem.  But it would be nice to know why things like this happen.

This might be because of Overwatch, do you run it?

No, I have no Mods in my game.  Are you saying that it is Overwatch that keeps your game from having the Starlight Shores lag that my game experiences?

Possibly. At the time I was in Starlight Snores, I ran Twallan's Storyprog, Errortrap, and Overwatch. Since the other two don't speed up your game, Overwatch is the only logical choice. Of course, this is the Sims, and maybe my game was just being Special.

Wiry, given your inherent specialness, I could just about believe that.  ;)

By the way, when you typed the name of the town above, did you mean to spell it like that, or was it a typo?

Edited to add:  I'm afraid we're straying slightly from the topic here.  My fault.  I just couldn't resist "Starlight Snores"!

Yeah, sorry about the off topic. That was intentional  ;D

I moved them to SV and the same thing is happening. The only thing I have done differently the last week or so is buy and install Diesel. It's getting frustrating to play, even in SV where I used to have no problems at all. How could Diesel mess the game up?  :'(

Try opening a brand spankin New world and a new family.  See if problems persist.

Well... the more Expansions/Stuff Packs you have, the harder will run the game due to much content from the packs.  I don't have Diesel and I don't believe that Diesel is messing your game...
