I'm surprised that I'm experiencing this issue.
The Sims 3 Freezes every 5 seconds for a few seconds and to me, I find playing it difficult now.
More worse than a buffing internet video.
I've had Windows 10 Pro for a couple of years,, The Sims 3 installed via. Steam for many years and recently passed over and installed
via. Origin for a number of weeks and had no problem. It ran smoothly and all EPs worked like clock-work.
Then suddenly, a day comes when I get this. Freezing every 5 seconds, which lasts for 7 to 10 seconds long.
This sort of problem, if not resolved, could result in me losing interest in The Sims 3 and dis-regarding it, altogether.
Clearing the game CACHE hasn't resolved the issue NOR has the "reset Sim first last name" cheat.
I now need a third and working solution.
As I do not want to kiss this TS3 goodbye.
But who want a game that freezes all the time ?
Any help, I would be very grateful.
