KittyKookay - take a look at the link in the post 3 posts above yours... How to Merge cc in ts4 (previous page, 18 - 4 posts up from the bottom)...

...merging cc really speeds up load time and reduces game lag.

~~~~~~~

Sjoslor (Nita is your name?) - would you please post a screen capture of your Mods folder Properties? You can post it in the thread over in Tech Edge so I can see it there :D

...or here, lol.

Here is an example of what I would like to see, please:



~~~~~~~

Etta - I really know what you mean! One of my game loads has 55ish gb's worth of cc :D

I am not sure how to get a screen capture of my mods folder properties, and even how to find it? And my name is Anita, but because there is more than one, you can call me Nita :)

Wow, PInk you are lucky!
Loading time is quite a frustration isn't it?
Ten minutes give you just enough time to get coffee going. behappy

With the merged packages no, less than a minute.  When I add new content and change the merged packages is when it take a little longer, but that is when I get my delete list ready for items that I place that aren't up to my standards.  I have quite the process down.  What is hard is when I walk away from the Sims 4 and come back a month later... I always have to try and remember my process :)

Nita - Thank you for allowing us to give you a nickname... you are awesome!

Nikkaa and Pink - it is wonderful to meet some more cc junkies! lol <3

Rosie - if you have any questions, please let us know. Also, I made a thread in Tech Edge on how to Merge cc in TS4 :D

Matt - I think EA updated its engine somewhere in one of the updates - my game has always loaded more quickly with merged cc files, but my 34.8gb game is loaded in under 3 minutes. I can remember when I had 29-29gb of merged cc and it was taking 20 minutes.

Anita - how much cc do you have in your game these days?

Etta - how much cc now? lol <3

LOL, Suzanne, I am down to 6,85 GB.
Slowly adding only stuff that I really like and would use.
And constantly deleting those that don't work for me in my game.

Needless to say my game loads really fast these days. ROFL

It's like a tradition in my house. I start up the game and go wash dishes and/or clean up the house. By time I'm done, the game is loaded up.

Mayetra I used to do that, even sometimes when the game loaded I just give up and do something else...
Now I merged the files ....3 minutes and it´s on!!!!!I was so happy. It takes time to merge but it´s totally worthy!!!

Well my Mac doesn't like package files much. Had to reduce them to 1,64GB. My sims3pack files are another story: should be around 30GB at the moment.

I'm slowly bundling my files now. I also store my objects recolors, walls, terrains and floors outside of my downloads folder. Granted this is for Sims 2 not sure how that translates to Sims 3 or 4 as I've never played them.

Mine has grown 25.52 GB since last time. I am going through the very slow process of reorganizing all my CC by creator and merging as many files as I can, so I can get my game to run faster.

I actually found out that part of the reason my game as running slowly was that I wasn't using the right resolution. I used the resolution my computer says it was, but apparently, that doesn't translate to the Sims.

What resolution did your computer suggest, Rosie?

...and what have you reset it to?
