Sims freezes every few seconds
I bought the game during the special deal, and it worked perfect for the first couple hours, then I went to the gym in game and it it started freezing every few seconds (except the green diamond keeps spinning and music keeps playing so it's not a complete freeze). The freeze lasts around 3 seconds then resumes normally, and then freezes again every 20-30 seconds. I have a high end laptop so it can't be that. I tried the resetSim*, and cleared the cache's, and still nothing. I hope someone out there knows a fix. The only thing I haven't tried was a full re-install but I would like to avoid that if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

frezzes like this are hard to fix, specially since reset sim + only answer most people got for you here. Did you ever think of using mods
i know i few that fixed a lot of people's games, OVERWATCH (by nraas) be a big help at times.

other lag can be from animal spawns and there a mod to turn them down/ off which help a lot of people with pets.

are you playing at max? try turning down your lot detail to 6 instead of 8.

reinstall is not worth the time, cause most likely it something in game causing it ,and not your system yourself.

So I was doing Resetsim while at my home, but this time I went into the city and then entered ResetSim, and POOF!!! It worked! Now anytime that glitch happens, which is rarely, and most likely during or after a visit to town, i just go back to town and Resetsim. Hopefully this helps others with this problem.
