I don’t actually know if I’m supposed to open a new topic or post here. But my game was running perfectly fine after Season patch, however, after they released the Fix patch on June 26th my game started having some of the problems that were supposed to be fixed. The grass is so green that it’s actually blinding, I’ll include a picture but I don’t think it shows it as bright as it is ! Also, the wallpaper issue. It’s so bad that I spent fifteen minutes painting the outside of a small house, it’s ridiculous and frustrating ! The whole build mode is lagging, but wallpaper is the worst !

 

I’m playing on a iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, late 2015) running macOS High Sierra, with a AMD Radeon R9 M380 2048 Mo graphic card.

 

My game and computer are fully updated. I repaired the game, removed The Sims 4 folder and generated a new one with no CC and it’s still happening.

 

My settings (written in French, but basically they're on high) :

The green grass (plus, it was a rainy day so the outdoor lighting wasn't the brightest) :

PS : The picture is of Brindleton Bay but I checked the other worlds and it's the same, Oasis Spring is the worst though, the contrast with the sand is terrible (also the sand is very orange).

@Pixellarious About the wallpaper lag: There is a post about a workaround suggested by Simguru Nick for this in another topic on here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-Extreme-Lag-When-placing-wallpaper-on-walls/td-p/68... (scroll down to Crinrict‘s last entry on that page) This might work for you.

If it's not duller, but the other way round, yes please, create a new thread.

What hood are you playing ?

Could you try turning off retina to see if it's related to that ?

My graphics in the game improved sometime last week, probably after the patch.  Got on today and it may be worse than before, even the atmosphere is gloomy.  

 

And by worse I mean back to dull, and almost dead looking grass.

Same for me here. The grass is so weird in Brindleton bay. Especially there where it was once very beautiful yellowish grass. I hope its a bug they will fix cause its very ugly now.

 

I played with my vampyr today and notice that you cant anymore change the type of tooth and others facial marks of your sims.

 

And still lots of bugs for cats and dogs, incomplete cinématiques. I mean sims that take the litter and are teleport to the garbage to trow the litter.

 

My game even bug loading le world menu. I had to stop it with task manager.

 

Thanks. And thats right after the patch of today so no excuses. Bugs arent fixed yet, some of them.

Same. I'm playing in the Pancakes neighbourhood from Willow Creek lately, and the grass doesn't have the usual bright green shade. It's much duller, some light olive tone.

 

I'm on the latest patch, but I don't have Seasons installed. 

I play on a Mac with an integrated chipset (Intel Iris 1536 Mb) and laptop mode is on.

I wanted to changed the color of my Sim’s grass because it looked dead, but it won’t let me!
