if you have more than 4 gb of RAM, you can give the Sims 3 more memory to use. Right now the game is set to use 2 gb.
Do not use more than HALF of what you have. So,if you have 16 (Cnih, looking at you), you can give it up to 8 gb.
Go into where your basegame is, mine is digital, so it’s in Origin. If you had a disk, it’s in ProgramFiles(x86)/origin OR EA/the sims 3/game/bin
copy that file and put it somewhere safe in case you screw up.Right click and open with notepad or something. Change and save as noted above.
I have 32 gb of RAM, but only gave the game 8 gb and it flies. What it does, that I needed it for as I make machinima, was rendering. I have a massive Nvidia card with everything on high, but it still took its sweet ass time to render. Now, it’s pretty much instant.
Kat watched a video the other night on cheap ways to heat a room with every day items. You get a baking tray, put 4 candles in it, then place a small sized ceramic pot on top, cover the hole to stop heat escaping and then place a bigger ceramic pot over the smaller one.
The theory is that the smaller one traps the heat and heats up (which it does and it’s to hot to touch). Then because the bigger pot over hangs the tray the heat from the smaller one sucks in cold air, heats it up and pushes it out the hole at the top of the bigger one.
We did this last night and it honestly made a difference in our biggish living room, totally took the chill off. Though I’ll probably make another one to warm our room up perfectly.

Oh man this is brilliant!
I wish I had known this when I was younger and trying to heat my studio with candles.
"Moreover, popular narratives about the end of [legally sanctioned black, U.S slavery] erase[s] the agency of black people themselves.
And, I suppose we can say that if Lincoln did not really free the slaves, he was shrewd enough to recognize that the only hope of winning the civil war resided in pre-aiding the opportunity for black people to fight for their own freedom.”
