Since downloading the two recent patches for sims 4 I have experienced problems with the launcher timing out when I try opening up the game to a point I have to close it and retry one to two more times before it opens smoothly. This problem I had before the most recent patch and though it doesn't bother me too much it makes going into sims 4 a hassle because I know this isn't my computer having trouble loading.
The second issue is odd, sporadic lag, this I experienced yesterday and this morning since updating again to the patch released a few days ago. it's not a game breaker but it's similar to that horrible problem everyone had shortly before City Living was released, the sort of lag that makes the world and sims feel like they're in a time warp and makes you feel sick if played for more than 10 minutes.
Before logging these I'd like to add that my computer is routinely defragged because of how much sims can do to it and the files within, I clear caches and don't use mods to a fault so there is no conflict between software and the like, I also have sims in its own file to itself out of the way of other things on my laptop which in itself is made for harder to process things like sims and other big games, all of the above is how I know these problems are the patches as everything was fine before them and my computer can handle a good amount, even sims itself pretty plum easily.
I hope logging this helps others with the same or similar issues with their game right now and perhaps before said patches.
Have a nice day everyone
