Try update everything that's possible including Windows.
And that weird that i've got the same graphics and it doesn't work, I might try reinstalling entire laptop then

It's not just this. With cards that render DSV from the pennticles you have to mash the tab key to see all of it. This happens on my PC with a GTX 670 card which is a high end card.

I have this issue too ...I tweeted sims 4 team about it but no reply lol. Looks like the city has been flooded, so disappointing as the view is so nice from the Pinnacles.. this bug is making me not wanting to even move there.

I'm having the same problem. I've done everything that I could think of and still the problem persists. Has anyone come up with a fix yet? I'm uploading my dxdiag as well.

could you try updating your graphics card ? I would think there's newer drivers than the ones you are using.

@crinrict

Thank you for your recommendation.

Unfortunately, updating my drivers to the latest iteration available had no effect on the presence of this issue in my game. I do find this issue to be rather unusual. While I do acknowledge the possibility that this is a hardware/software issue on my end, I feel it is strange that my computer (which is only about one-and-a-half years old and quite well outfitted considering its price point) Is capable of running every other aspect of the sims 4 nearly flawlessly and on full graphics settings, and is also able to run other programs more demanding than the sims quite well. It is the fact that I have never experienced any similar issue to this - not even in other particularly detailed neighbourhoods such as those in san myshuno or other places in del sol valley - that lead me to believe this is something beyond me or my computer. That said, I'm certainly no expert.

I have included an updated DxDiag file in case that should aid in this investigation.

Thanks again for working on this. Also, thanks for recommending the driver update, as I was likely due for one anyways.

I thought exactly the same! I run Sims on nearly full graphics settings (apart from Lightning everything is on the highest one) and got this issue with Del Sol Valley. I don't really know how gaming engines works but I hope they'll fix it in the next patch.

Haven't really been following this thread too much but I assume you all tried different graphics settings ?

 

  • Laptop mode on/off
  • Lowering settings
  • For Mac: Retina on/off
  • Uncompressed textures on/off ?

It's really a bit curious why it only happens on some cards and then also on certain drivers/settings.

 

I hope Maxis can figure out the cause with all your information though,

Happy Gaming
