Awesome Mod Storymode population question.

I see that you can decide population in the configuration tool. Does that only effect actual residents with houses (like if you reach the limit it wont move in / create more sims) OR does it include homeless sims as well (service/role sims etc)?

It includes all sims instantiated in the world for any reason. It does not include homeless sims who are deinstantiated, such as service sims.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Okay, perfect thank you! what is a number for population that you recommend in order to reduce lag yet still have a full and active world, what is the sweet spot iyo?

I used master controller to check population, and found that I had 61 Service sims. So those are not counted as they only exist when the game calls on them by for example calling a service and what not? Am I understanding it correctly?

I doubt there'd be just one spot, I find I get real lag by about 300. I get better results by leaving the population set at zero and just concern myself with my sims.

ETA: Of course it is related to what your computer can handle.

0?? I have it at 150 and seems to run fairly well. About 70 residents, 50 service sims, and 30 homeless)

What would happen if I put it at 0???

Zero just means it's not actively controlling your population.
