I am posting this here because I am unsure if this is a bug or something very normal!
I have a PS4 and the game is extremely laggy even on brand new save files (this has happened to me on two different PS4s so far), especially in public lots it keeps freezing for a moment and then going back to normal. Just a lot of stuttering but it is becoming a bit unbearable and I am considering moving to PC even though I want to play The Sims 4 on the big TV..
I wanted to find out, is anyone else experiencing this? I am also interested to know if this problem is non existent on PS4 Pro
I think it's a game issue. They just need to make the game more stable thru a patch.
Now if you have Island Living and your placing a door or walls your game will crash. Their working on an emergency fix for that and yes it's a bug.
I'd wait. They've fixed the lagging before and will probably fix it again in an update.
The lagging has been happening to me ever since I bought the game, it just got worse and worse since then.. reading online this issue was also happening to many before I bought the game.. I don't really have hope.. this is quite sad for me.. for my birthday someone is gifting me Island Living, I don't want to make the wrong choice and end up with a laggy game forever if it isn't fixed as well as put someone's kindness to the bin. As a university student I just don't have money to be re-buying all packs later on and I feel like I would be mean to the person gifting me the gift! so I really can't take the chance
I have been playing the PC version and it's actually much smoother for me everywhere so far and I can enjoy the game finally so I am happy with it so far! I haven't encountered any lags on my PC with it so far.. and if I will encounter any lags in the big areas (haven't so far so yay) it will be much better than the game dying in one small apartment with one Sim haha
That's good! I hope it will be addressed, I won't switch back really as I have been enjoying The Sims 4 on PC a lot since I have had 0 lag and I also enjoy the nicer graphics.. and easier controls.. and already got the Island Living pack haha but I hope it will be fixed for all the other PS4 members!
I've been having this same crashing problem too now for over a month especially with the game crashing when I travel, managing households and exiting the game. Do you play on PS4 Or Xbox? I play on PS4 so each time I get the blue screen I enter "travel crash" as the reason. I also reported it on twitter to SimGuruLegacy and SimGuruJoystick -SimGuruLegacy is the one who suggested I report it on my PS4 using the word "travel crash" so they could find it in the logs. My suggestion to you and anyone else who has this issue is to report it through your console each time it happens and to report it on twitter (if you have one) to SimGuru Legacy, Joystick and SimguruNick so we can't get as many people on them about this so that they hopefully fix this in the next update. It's making the game excruciatingly unplayable.
