Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So whether we want to admit it or not we’re all experiencing some sort of Animation Lag since the Easter Take Down for TSTO hit our games earlier this week. If you’re game is running slow, or you notice a stutter or hesitation when scrolling through your town (or a neighbor’s)…I can assure you it’s not just you going through it!
While we all await a new “hotfix” from EA for the lag (and note…it’s not just TSTO going through this..other EA games are experiencing it as well) there are a few things you can do to try and lessen the lag in YOUR town. And in return it might help lessen the lag for your neighbors when they visit you!
Our awesome readers here at Addicts have been posting various things they’ve tried throughout the last couple of days to try and limit the amount of lag their game creates. We’re not saying these will work for everyone, but it doesn’t hurt to try 🙂
-Try to avoid outside tasks for your characters, especially joint outside tasks. Less animation for characters to lag on.
-Try storing all of your Non-Playable Characters in Inventory for now. Let’s be honest they’re just roaming your Springfield right now taking up valuable TSTO memory!
-Try removing some roads in your town. This will create fewer places for your characters to walk, thus potentially lessening the lag in your town.
-If your town is loaded with decorations, try storing some of the ones that will be easy to place again once the fix comes out. Don’t destroy any of your 2d or 3d creations, but if you have some fences that can easily be stored and replaced try that.
-Finally, if you’re noticing a TON of lag when visiting your neighbor’s try checking out their Krustyland. Usually KL has a lot less going on in it, so it may be lag free for you! Just remember..if you’re visiting KL’s someone might be visiting yours too. So don’t forget to pop into it every now and then and clear those handshakes!
Hope these tips help you guys lessen the lag in your town! And even more importantly I hope the fix comes soon!!!
Happy Tapping my friends!
