    Hi everyone. Really love this mod. Planning on doing a conqueror run through with either level 2 or 3 cities on Xbox one x. Leaning towards level 2 due to a history of crashing issues and lag on 3, but was wondering what everyone’s thoughts were now since the script updates kinggath and team have provided over the past year. I know the triangle of death is an obvious area to avoid, but was wondering about the other locations.

    I advise investing in an external SSD--it really smooths out a lot of hitching and stuttering.

    A lot depends on what other mods you're running alongside Sim Settlements and its expansions. With a minimal load order, you should be okay. If you set city plan upgrades to manual, then you can hold off upgrading if you are experiencing issues, or you can make a rollback save and give it a test run.

    I don't know much about them, so I don't have any specific advice. Mine is a pretty standard. I just went for the cheaper 500GB SSD. Loading times are improved, though still quite long. But the hitching and stuttering, mostly caused by loading when crossing cell boundaries, is much reduced.

    Ultimately, the hard crashes that can occur when too many objects are rendered on-screen are uneffected by having an SSD, since that just has too do with too much geometry rather than loading bottlenecks, but if you're going to put a crap ton of hours into this game, and you're willing to invest some extra money, I'd say it's worth it.
