‌Greetings All, here is the situation.  With master level handiness I Completely upgraded both versions of drones, however, no matter what I record the quality of the recording is always poor; now I know I can increase the Quality by editing, adding effects etc, but that only brings the quality to great is there a glitch or was it deliberate?  will I never be able to get an excellent quality recording with the drone?


Either way is fine with me I would just like to know.


Thanks in Advance




even with the debacle that was My First pet Stuff Pack (which you recovered from...mostly way to go) Sims 4 has still managed to remain relatively UN-Effected by whoever was responsible for battlefront 2, Mass Effect Andromeda and Star Wars the Old Republic not to mention microtransactions in FIFA...What? anyway, keep up the good work.

I feel that if I completely upgrade my drone it should not continue to produce only "Poor" quality videos. Why make it upgradeable, then?
