Considering the amount of CC I have, and the system I have, it's surprising that the load time for my game doesn't take any more than about 5 - 10 minutes. I've never really timed it. Anyway, I either read a page, or two, in a book, or just do some quick clean up/house work stuff. Since I'm not a huge fan of Sims music (thank the gods I'm deaf in one ear), I usually have some music on as well, so I listen to that too.

Can you just picture that?!!?

My game loaded in no time. Only had up to OFB  and minimal Custom Content.

Or, I'd pester Carrie to no end. lolol

Have I ever complained? What you call 'pestering'....I consider a challenge. You know, it's like when you're on an unplowed snow covered road? Almost anyone would look at that and think: "oh heck no!". Me? I'm like: "Here, hold my coffee and watch this". Same concept, only I have FAR more fun with you!

Have too much cc to my game so it will take time to load, it's a little different to what I'm doing but I usually do a quick cleaning, get the mail, water the flowers, take care of the laundry or solving crossword puzzles.

Well,with only 7GB of CC and my little Black Box that can handle GTA V on high Settings it only takes around 15 Minutes until the Game has finished loading.Sometimes it`s a bit faster and sometimes slower,depends on how many Playsessions i keep the cache Files and if i deleted them before starting the Game.
Usually i do something small in the Kitchen like cleaning the Oven or read something,play around with my Lego Stuff (or making silly pics with them) or water the Plants.
Sometimes i`m lying on my Couch waiting for the Game to finish loading but get too comfy and fall asleep :yayoyay

My game loads pretty quickly (about 5 minutes or so with a little over 6 GB of CC), so normally I just check whatever notes I may have down from the previous rotation of the household I'm going to play.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

I watch it load sometimes. Other times I get on my phone and look up more CC to download. Then I close my game soon as it opens and go to download the CC I just found. :D loveybear

I have a ton of custom content so my game takes around 20mins to load fully. While I'm waiting I play Sims Freeplay on the ipad....an addict or what...eh?  youbet

I make a cup of coffee and browse the net on my phone. Mine takes approx. 15/20 mins to load right now, but I can't stop downloading cc so I imagine that I will soon be able to take a nap while the game loads, haha.

I second this! Often I scour simscave update threads for something I've missed on my last downloading spree. Or read legacies and other sim stories. My game takes about 20 minutes to load *sigh*.

My game is taking between 25-30 minutes to load, so I usually use that time to read or to work on some university stuff. I hardly play during the day, so there's never much cleaning left to do while the game loads

I just care for the coffee, or even do a little something in the house, or I wait !!, because my game does not take very long, I do not have much stuff to load,

Well I used to have to just sit and wait (I'm mostly bedbound), but then I got a tablet, so now I get to read. And still get impatient. And now I get a cat in my face because he doesn't seem to like me using my tablet! Little cutie pie!  kittymeowee
