    @Aussie_Simmer You can defiantly play with ultra settings on that PC and it won't hinder your game play at all. Some settings require you to close out and re launch the game after changing to take effect.

    Thanks for sharing your game specs @simasaurus09! :)

    I will keep that in mind! :)

    Edge smoothing is getting smooth edges on the objects. You will get jagged edges if you put it none or low.

    Mine take several minutes, don't know how long exactly. I'm using lowest settings on almost everything. I have edge smoothing on low and view distance high. Can't wait to replace my laptop :smiley:

    About 15 seconds in the game I have had going since September 2014. Settings on Ultra.

    When I play the game on ultra setting and 2K resolution there is this feel of heaviness when rotating the mouse, but on ultra setting and 1920x1080 it is buttery smooth.

    The loading times not just depend on PC specs but also the amount of CC and the number of households you have in the worlds
    Everything I post is an opinion here and I think every post of others is as well.

    Mine are about 5 seconds on a fresh save. On my current save, loading screens are 15-25 seconds. Still very tolerable for me.

    My specs allows for Ultra settings in game.

    Under 10 seconds, but in a new save like 2. I have everything on ultra but turned uncompressed sims textures off to save some ram.

    New save, 5 seconds. Once I've got a pile more Sims in the world, 10-12 seconds, and 12-15 for some non-residential lots. It's not bad - rarely enough time for me to even catch up on Twitter posts. Looking forward to getting a new graphics card soon (my son is upgrading his, and I'm getting his old one - nothing exciting, but better than what I have now) to see if it goes down.

    I just did a test:

    3.33 seconds from opening screen to my neighborhood.
    10.69 seconds to get from house to library.
    23.62 seconds to get home from library.
    12.28 seconds to get from house to park.
    26.01 seconds to get home from park.

    I play on Ultra settings. I have a gaming laptop -- don't know specs.

    I just checked on my main save and my load time for them to return to their lot was almost a minute. Mind you, this is a very big save I have been running almost a year now.

    typically anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute, depending on destination point. save file isn't very big - my laptop has just been running terribly after coming back to the US from Korea.
