    Nothing can express how happy I am to have found this, any updates as to how close you are to being finished?
  • Gaxili1Gaxili1 Posts: 212 Member
    Thank you for those kind words @Tatsu_Dragneel :smiley: We are ready with a beta very soon, no more than a matter of weeks max :wink:
    All we need to do now is to finish 1 lot, edit 1 other and complete the routing paint and that should be it for the beta version :blush:

    Incredible! :o There aren't superlatives enough to describe the huge amount of work... Can't wait for you to share it...

    This is a very beautiful world! I'm not sure if you're still updating it at this point or not. Have you thought about using cheats to also create underground hobbit homes? I created one a couple of years ago. I followed a tutorial on how to do it. Now I cannot find the tutorial anymore and cannot remember how I did it. lol But here is a link to the exchange where I uploaded it. I would be happy to allow you to use it in your world and hope you can figure out how to replicate it. Oops! Apparently I cannot post links yet. It's called Underground Hobbit Mansion. Created by Amathyst8. http: // www .thesims3 .com /assetDetail.html?assetId=8386271 without the spaces.

    Aaw thank you! :smiley: She's a happy chubby baby, most of the day goes by with entertaining her now that she's this much more awake :wink: So I do not have more than 1 hour of computer time a day, but luckily we're almost finished with the BETA and Crowkeeper is working hard to finish the ini files which is the last thing we need before having a release ready!

    I'll post a download link in this thread of course :blush:

    Sims 3 Middle Earth status!

    Thank you for staying tuned!
    So if you’ve been following @crowkeeperthesimmer on Tumblr you’d know how she’s been buzzing around working extremely hard to finish the last of our upcoming world! You’d be amazed if you knew exactly how much work has been put into this project:-)

    So, on the positive side, we now have a BETA! Everything we planned to finish with the first BETA has been built, adjusted and ready to be tested.

    We planned on releasing the first version december 2015 but extended the date due to various RL events.

    We’re testing the world in game now and are trying to sort out some routing issues before we release anything - it has to be playable, right? ;-)

    So once we find the reason for the bit of lag, our world is ready to be shared :-)
  • AlleenmensAlleenmens Posts: 18,600 Member
    Awesome... :smiley: Thank you so very much for all your hard work and sharing with us... Can't wait for it... I'm doing a reality show and will like if my contestants can 'visit' this world... It would be so cool... ;)

    This is gorgeous! I really cannot wait for it :). Suggestions re: lag, if you've eliminated the obvious routing problems. 1) Sims going places (if all the community lots are set to 'no visitors allowed' it minimizes it). 2) Trees/rocks etc. placed next to lots. Even two spaces away it can cause issues. 3) Fences right on the edge of the lot. Causes trapped sims. 4) Having Island Paradise installed. No matter what world I play, the extra routing calculations makes my world slow down. 5) A large amount of trees/fog emitters/effects/spawners. Sadly, the prettier and more complex the world, the worse the lag. 6) That's just how it is with the sims 3. I usually use NRaas's Error Trap as sims get stuck in the daftest places, for no apparent reason. Oh. And Pets. Wildlife get stuck. All the time. Again - Error Trap helps.

    I hope you track down the cause. Lag is a super pain in the derrière. Particularly if it prevents us from trying out this amazing creation! Good luck!
  • anetherronanetherron Posts: 605 Member
    Oh, and an obvious one easily missed - if you haven't already, try playing it for 3-4 sims days and see if the lag reduces. The first few days of a world's life is always the worst as spawners spawn and npc's are created.
  • KarilynMonroe2KarilynMonroe2 Posts: 1,448 Member
    Good luck! What EP's are being used?
  • anetherronanetherron Posts: 605 Member
    I would definitely recommend ErrorTrap to find out what's wrong. I just had a nightmare with a world I'm working on grinding to a halt from lag. I used ErrorTrap and found out that two NPC's were corrupt. Soon as I deleted them the lag was gone. Excellent program!
