First, I didn't know which section would be best for this, but since it helps loading of cc quicker/better I figured I'd pop it up here & it can moved if a better spot for Everyone.

This allows you to combine your package files to make your loading time faster & help with lagging too. Here is the direct link to Club Crimsyn along with their tutorial on installing. (It does take awhile to run once combining.....this is normal) Please read the tut & info on their page here:

I really hope this is helpful!!! If anyone already uses this, I am curious to know if it actually works good? I heard some fab reviews on FB & want to try it out more love

Yes it's following this post that I learned how to combine my CC. Works perfectly, just be careful because some things aren't compatible when merged.
For example at first I merged the pose player with my poses, it wasn't appearing in the game after. So I have my pose player with other objects, and a single file with several hundreds poses in it.
You also need to make a separate merge for patterns, and just in case my NRAAS mods are seperated as well.

An observation I have: most things (clothes, objects, ...) will merge in a file with a smaller 'weight' (sorry for my bad English xD), but when it comes to hair the merge file is actually bigger than
all the original ones together. So make sure the file doesn't go above 200 MB or the game will take too long to read it, creating lag again. I have 3 merged files just for all the hair I use.

Have fun!

Edit:
Here is the link to the tutorial on Simlogical (the ones who made S3PE)

Just don't do what I did a year or so back and forget to keep the un-merged files somewhere safe.

Slight issue with having to find everything all over again haha!

You are quite welcome :) Been busy lately but I am still coming by Wink
I think that apart to take some screenshots for contests or testing new created items, I haven't had time to play in... months xD

Oh and yes I do keep a copy of the files when I download them also, and as I have the space I keep also backup folders with all the files I merge.
Whenever I add new items and want to add them to the merge file after I test them, I can add them to the merged file, but I rather add it
to the folder and remerge everything.
