THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I think we need a centralized thread to talk about the latest EP.  Skadi, Sooze, and I are all reporting significant lag in Starshite Shores.  I'm getting pauses every 5 or 10 game minutes, with nighttime taking excruciatingly long to get through.

I was good for 3-4 simdays, then I started with the sound lag last night. I've also had an error 12 already. I'm saving once or twice a simday. I have patch 1.31, all EPs and SPs and no CC or mods - bar Awesomemod - whatsoever.

I have AM, a handful of mods all reported to be compatible [Buzzler's stuff]. It is laggy everywhere. Spurts and starts especially when you are in a venue. Previous large households [8+pets] in Sunset Valley 2nd Ed and Lunar Lakes did not have this issue. It's going to be a painfully slow road to stardom.

Are they routing errors?  Those seem to inflict ever single EA-made neighborhood.

I'm not finding any stuck sims, and resetsim *.* didn't help.  Usually that temporarily clears up routing issues.

I think I'm definitely going to wait to get this EP if you guys are all having significant problems.  Just from past posts I know you all had functioning games before hand and are experienced users.  Is that the only neighborhood with problems, or does this stretch across your whole game?

I'm playing with no cc except for some store hairs and NRAAS mods. My game is really laggy and jumpy in Starlight Shores compared to playing 1.29 with a metric tonne of cc. I've tried turning down my graphics (yes jezzer, my graphics can get worse) and restting objects, but to no avail. I have not tried any other hood yet.

ETA: oh, and I don't seem to be getting any sound coming from jukeboxes.

I am about to test another world, to see if it's the new hood, or the new ep/patch.

I haven't tried a new world, but spent 4-5 hours last night continuing my game in sunset valley, patched to 1.31 and Showtime installed, and did not encounter any problems, definitely no lagging of any kind.

I wouldn't be surprised if it is the new hood that is problematic, just like Bridgeport was buggy as hell when LN came out.  It seems like the original hoods fair better than the new creations whenever EAxis expand the game.

I played Lunar Lakes for a little while with no issues, so I think it's just the new hood.

The only issue I've noticed so far is with the sound shutting off randomly.  No lag here.

Running atm with just awesome mod, my cc folder is pulled.

I was having issues with some of NRAAS stuff, with the portaits all being highlighted and not selecting the active sim properly, but it didn't seem to be portrait panel causing it. 
I've pulled it all until I can single out the problem.

Had a look in CAW, the routing paint is solid. The routing looks solid. That's unique among EA worlds. There's a road not connected in the middle of town, but I don't imagine that could be the cause. Figure it's probably a lot, but can't locate anything. No trouble in other hoods.

I'll most probably get sporked for using Simport but the bloody Simfests may show up at the same time and place where a Simport show got booked. This causes the show to stay in some kind of limbo where you can't complete it and thus can't use Simport anymore.

My Sim can no longer use her Swimwear hairstyle in-game; it disappeared and got replaced with some fugly Base Game crap.  I also have her in my SavedSims folder; and when I checked in CAS, the correct hairstyle was still there.  WTF?

The game is so used to shoddy routing that it just doesn't know what to do with itself, now.

They've replaced the "Steel Scalloped Roof" texture with something completely different.

I was hoping someone more CAW-savvy than me would check.  I've noticed that the venue lots have very shoddy pathing on the stages, with LOTS of people getting in one another's way, angry foot-tapping, etc.  During a Simfest, people not actually involved in the Simfest would get up on the stage like they were going to perform, only to have to cancel and get out of the way of the actual performer.  It reminded me of how you'd use the computer in TS2 and suddenly every sim in the house would zerg rush the room in an effort to turn the computer off.

I haven't had any/more lag in Starlight Whatever, but I have had several cases of the audio cutting out for a while (lets say five minutes) and then coming back on allofasuddenandrushedlike. It's very strange.

I added some venues to Lunar Lakes, and had no serious issues. When my sim did her first performance though, ever sim in the audience had a route fail thought bubble.

I have not had lags but any sims that fish at the main beach where the fish are swimming are stuck there until I lead them out or teleport them out to where they need to go. It is fine at the more distant beach.

And I am having the screen go very dark like a few other people have reported.

I'm still Showtime free, but I had a similar occurrence in Bridgeport. Have you tried resetting the entire town?

I can second this. The sound in my game has been cutting out while testing a lot I've been building (a watering hole IIRC) in Builder's Island. It appears that the ambient sounds are cutting off the music playing from a jukebox inside the lot.

I have had lag in Starlight Shores that was getting progressively worse. Once I resetsim * the lags became shorter, but they're still there.

Also having the sound cutting out issue.

I am having sound issues also, and now my singer cannot do anything such as audition, perform for tips, or whatever. She did simport out and back. My magician who had never been simported out still can get gigs. 

Hosted a singer and had the screen go almost black again so could not see her at all.
