Okay, so it’s officially my turn to promote how amazing merging is for your game. I’m going to tell it as a really dramatic epic:
It was a dark and stormy night. Weary after many months of having to wait 30-40 minutes for her build save to load, and realizing she could only take so many showers in a day, Jade ventured far and wide for something, or someone who could save her from this tiresome curse. She journeyed west, to the Temple of Waifu, where she spoke to the famed and powerful guru that resided there: Coleslaw Sifu.
“What can I do? Thirty minutes for 10gbs of CC is way too long!” Jade cried to the guru. “Please help me, Wise One. Bestow your wisdom on me.”
“You must harness the sacred, ancient power of Sims 4 Studio, my child.” Answered the Sifu.
“Sims 4 Studio? B-But what do I do?” Jade wept.
“It’s under Tools.” The Sifu said, dissolving into many particles and disappearing into a wispy mist.
Taking the advice she learned from the wise guru, Jade returned home where she divided 10gbs of sims 4 cc into 23 packages. Will this really help me? She thought. Anxious, she placed her new merged files into her game, and pressed Start. The minutes passed, one… two. Jade began to lose hope.
“Merging won’t make a difference!” She said, defeated.
A miracle! The eight minute mark hit… and the naive girl was shocked to see… the Sims 4 loading screen! It was incredible! Her loading time had decreased from a tedious 30 minutes to a mere eight! Gods be to glory, she was saved.
“Thank you Sifu Coleslaw,” she whispered into the wind.
Moral of the story: Merge your shit, seriously. I’m not kidding. It can make SUCH a huge difference. My life is fucking saved.
