Yes, that's what I meant, sorry for the mistake! I did the upgrade through the AMD Driver Auto-Detect tool and the latest possible version was the 13.9. I upgraded the drivers to this version and then manually downloaded the 15.7 version and tried to install it, but it still can't be installed. I guess my computer doesn't meet the requirements...?
I'm merging these threads.
I think there's an issue with some older integrated chips and weak graphics cards.
Seen other reports around the social channels. Not sure if there's anything that can be done that helps or if the cards are just too low.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
Maybe you should add a new computer to your christmas wishes.:eahigh_file:
So, could it be fixed with a future patch or do we need a new graphics card? I used to have the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 and now it pains me to know that it probably could have run with this one. (It died and needed replacement, that's how I ended with the HD 5145 one -which I think is slightly worse than the 5650).
GTX 660 doesn't have this issue. City fully renders on that card.
Great that you had a better graphics card lying around. Or was this another PC?
So can future patch fix it? My graphics is AMD Radeon R6 and the latest driver is 18/10/2018. I'm attaching my dxdiag file as well.
PS: My sister plays on intel HD graphics or something like that with not even 300MB VRAM, it's integrated into her i3 Intel processor as well and apart from playing on low to medium settings her game works completely normally. I just find that kinda weird, I hope they fix that in a patch ASAP. The Sims 4 is like one of the least demanding game so I don't expect problems like this to happen in this game whatsoever...
