Title: Suggestion
Post by looseskrewz on 04/28/07 at 18:39:54

I think you should make the 'preferences' settings save with the sim.

I have a problem where I have many objects in my sim, so I set the do events to 1 and the graphics update to anywhere between 1-10 as suggested by someone else. This makes my sim run efficiently, where I am able to change settings, and whatnot.

The only problem I have is if I have to exit my sim and come back to it later.
At this point, it  loads the resume file, but the do events is back to 50, and it makes my my sim inoperable again.

...as a result, I am forced to always copy and paste a resume file of a lesser sim into the directory, change the do events back to 1, and then load my 'big sim' back up again.

kinda a pain in the butt.

seems like an easy fix though.

If you find yourself stuck because your computer wont respond as a result of a high "DoEvents" value, press and hold the "P" button on your keyboard for a few seconds.  This should pause the simulation, allowing you to choose Preferences and make the changes.
