White trees in SimCity?!

★★★★ Novice

I have SimCity few months and its working normally during that time. But when I installed Update 8 all the trees turned white!  I have AMD Radeon 6570 1GB + Radeon™ HD 7560D Dual Graphics graphic card. Earlier I never had a problem.

I as well have this issue with SimCity, for all the trees within the game are white and very bright. I don't exactly see any solutions or any posts of this certain issue.

White Trees... No River

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Newbie

Okay, so one morning I load up my Simcity with the new Cities Of Tomorrow pack and when I open a new world, all the trees are white, and the water of the river is gone so it's just a valley in the ground. Is This Normal? If it is, how do I turn it off or remove the Cities Of Tomorrow pack? Please help me.

I also have that problem with water. It's like a mud and it's brown.

I don't know how to solve problem with graphics, but you can remove Cities Of Tomorrow pack. If you got Windows 7, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Then find SimCity Cities of Tomorrow and select Uninstall.
