    I'm very new to forums in general but the Sims forum especially... I've tired finding a thread (?) About this or just to mention it as it doesn't bother me and nothing damaging has occurred afterwards (and I don't make that type of food very often) but I thought it'd at least say it here so you know if it happens to someone else.. my Sims (so far only 2/3 Sims -different ones- out of a total of maybe 10 Sims) when eating the super food salad and sitting on a bar stool or couch at the same time will, like, in sitting position fall into the couch (as if it had a hidden door under them and it opened) (or like one of those carnivals games where you throw a ball to try to get someone to fall into a tub of water)& they will 'dunk'into the couch for a second or so which is accompanied by a pool/water splashing sound at the same time. They pop right back up and go on like nothing happened so obv. A bug I imagine. Just thought I'd share and honestly don't know how to create a discussion:)

      Is this only happening with Sims from the same household? Or all on the same lot? Have you seen this on multiple lots? Does it only occur with bar stools and couches? No other chairs? Similarly, have you only seen it when eating the super food salad? Thanks much for the report!

    I thought it may be best to give you my save file to your performance team instead of waiting around for the bugs to fix. My game-play is overall seems to be fine like the animations are very smooth etc. The only issue I am experiencing is with the ultra speed regardless of any world - it seems to set itself back like 10 minutes or when they are sleeping - it throws back for a couple of hours. I have tried to the work around like lower settings and emptying house inventories but it hasn't made much improvement. There are bugs in my game but they are not a big bother to me except the ultra-speed. I hope you get most of the issues in the game sorted - many thanks!

    Rosemow said its a good idea as a new member to hand you a link for a savegame for both the romance bug (in this case mother and son) and the command delay bug happening in this file.

      Edit: The game somehow changed a son to roommate which explains why former son and a mother started to have a romance bar.
      The savegame still contains the delay bug.

    Hey, I think I've found a cause of lag that you haven't mentioned anywhere: Plants. Literally plants.
    Let me explain: Whenever I'm in the Magnolia Blossom park, the game lags horribly. While there is somehow no lag whatsoever in the southern neighbourhood of Oasis Springs (where Zoe Patel etc. live). And the only difference between them is the amount of plants, with the park having huge trees everywhere and South-OS having just about nothing.
    Also, I just downloaded an Irish Pub from the gallery. It lagged extremely. But ever since I deleted the ground plants it doesn't lag even nearly as much anymore. And my computer really isn't the best, so that's a HUGE improvement.
    When I took a closer look I noticed that all of these things have animations. Especially visible on the trees. With the ground plants, the lag might also come from a high poly count and a lot of things sticking out of them (leaves, flowers). But deleting ground plants also removes some laggyness from the game.

      So what I propose is a new graphics setting, or rather three:

      - Enable/Disable plant and water animations (water because the Pancakes' neighbourhood is the laggiest behind the park, and it does have a lot of water there; I could live with fish jumping around in "still" water honestly)

      - Enable/Disable low quality plants (if enabled, this would reduce ground plant meshes to the "Low Object Quality" setting no matter what setting you put it on over there; this means that plants look worse, but should also lag much less)

      - Enable/Disable water vehicles (I've got no better name for this; what I mean is things like the paddle steamer in Willow Creek; my theory is that they cause lots of lag too, because whenever they appear the FPS go down a bit more than usually)

      Very interesting! Could you perhaps share a save file or point me to a lot on the Gallery that I can grab to easily reproduce this on my own? Thanks much for the help!

    Hi SimGuruNick,

    I have a saved game that has the same butler in multiple house issue I'd like to share with you. The Google Drive link is: h t t p s://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzPNWx3L-nC1dUFyNXhLbnJzcmM/view?usp=sharing (sorry I am not here long enough to post links so cannot do hyperlink).

    There are 4 Played households, 2 in Willow Creek and 2 in Oasis Spring. 3 of them have the same butler.

    Please note that often when my character leaves the lot, the game would change the butler to a different one upon coming back (the non-Goth family in Willow Creek ended up with the same butler problem because of that). So if you are not seeing the same butler upon first check, please rotate the families.

    So essentially, there are two problems here:
    1. The same butler in multiple families
    2. Family butler gets exchanged upon leaving the lot

    Hope this helps. It's a really annoying issue and really affects the joy of an otherwise amazing game. Thanks!
