Damage level appears nearly expansion-grade, so the update will take a bit. Don't go rushing to install it yet.

So Games4theworld released the expansion...is it an untouched copy with separate folder for their cracks or already an tampered copy?

Cracks are separate. Just testing it out on my laptop before I install on my desktop. I'm running an i5, with 6GB RAM and a Radeon 6470M, with about a quarter of my 750GB drive full, and the game takes forever to load to the splash screen, even when it's the only thing running. Might wait for a Fairlight release to see if it's just an issue with the Games4theWorld copy, as my game wasn't as slow before install. I'm running with everything, including Katy Perry's shit pack (I want the furniture for a kid's room).

Yes, it's bizarre. A solid update with new interesting features, many of which people have been wanting for a long time. (Moving to other towns.) Unlike other updates, which are simply an update of nothing much, but you have to wait either way for AwesomeMOD to be updated. However, it is worth waiting for this time, unlike any other time. I am surprised, because at this point I would expect less value while they push SiMMMORP4.

Therefore Evil Arts must be drunk and on drugs. How unprofessional!

@NoShitSherlock I tried their version as well, game takes forever to load before even hitting the save game load screen. Had to force quit it. So there might be something with their version of the game.

Edit: Now installing stuff from the launcher takes forever...I tried uninstalling Island Paradise and rebooting my PC, but it is still taking too long to install stuff. Is this a patch issue? I had trouble installing the patch, had to re-download the cumulative one over and over again until it finally worked.

The lengthy load times may be due to the shiny new .tmp files that you'll find in your dccache folder, a 'feature' of the new patch. Delete the .tmp files (they are duplicates of your .dbc files) and stay away from the launcher.  They will regenerate if you use the launcher.  In addition, check your SavedSims folder for a file called downloadedsims.index and delete that.

Also it can be due to me being an idiot and completely missing a mod. Once I removed said mod, the load times went back to normal for me.

I noticed those .tmp files and wondered if I could delete them.

You can delete downloadedsims.index? I thought that you couldn't? Shows what I know.

Had some difficulties getting it to work but the torrent that's out now works. If I don't have the launcher open my game won't even start. I had to manually kill the launcher through the task manager then restart it; it took a while to load but it eventually came up. Once the launcher was ready the game started and loaded as normal. Only using NRAAS no cd at the moment.

After quitting the game and trying to restart it, it doesn't work. It automatically gives a black screen and nothing. Killing the sims with the task manager and trying again works. So something isn't quitting/closing right when closing the game. So the launcher has nothing to do with it.

Eh, It's loading quicker now, I Also forgot to remove an outdated mod, as I never had the shiny .tmp files. A few crashes, as I had to go edit my graphics configuration files, because the game is no longer recognising my card. Trying with a fresh game now, and only NRAAS mods.

Love EA's attempt at being hip with the T-Pain/Lonely Island reference.

To be honest I think this might be the worst patch yet; it's completely fucked up my custom content. Trying to manually fix it now but not having much luck so far. Definitely don't install it until AM have made their patch.

I kinda jumped the gun and started playing with new patch, supplanting AM with some Nraas goodies. My impatience is costing me dearly however. One of the more annoying bugs i'm experiencing is that NPC Mixologists at bars and clubs just go dancing and playing darts, and any attempt at ordering from the bar kinda resets the sim ordering to a neutral spot nearby. Strangely though it does not affect the Mixologist For Hire over the phone.

Well the Arr'd version of IP that is out now was fine and now it's gotten so laggy I can't even play it. And NRaas mods keep throwing script errors at me, so I think that the patch 1.55 was fine, it's just arr'ing this early that is causing issues. And my sims still dance with the damn door. What is with that anyways?

Sims resetting from the professional bars is a reported bug, and I have that too. If you/we replace the bars it fixes the issue supposedly.

So if I already installed the patch and the EP my game won't work even if I update my AwesomeMod? Cause now it doesn't work anyway and I'm really hoping that the mod update will fix it..

there is no version of Awesomemod compatible with 1.55 yet, which you would know if you paid attention to the revision date on the file.

Would have been more fun to let them wonder why their game crashes on startup...

I share my game with my grandson and 6 days ago, while I was at work, he patched the game to 1.55.  He has just moved in with me and hasn't been playing the game very long and didn't know the dangers.  Still, he insisted that his game was running fine. 
After he quit his game, I ran my awesomemod updater, just to be on the safe side, started the game, and built a test family.  I've been playing my test family and he has been playing his reg. hood for about a week now and we haven't had a single glitch.  I even check with "showconfig" that awesomemod is installed and running.

So, maybe some of these people who are doing all the complaining about glitches and lags, etc. should look somewhere beside the patch and the lack of an updated awesomemon for the source of their troubles.
