[OPEN] Sims Become Invisible After Using a Rocket at Ultra Speed

This only happens occasionally, but it is a nuisance.

 

After Exploring Space in a rocket ship, and going at Ultra Speed to get through it quickly, my sim will sometimes become invisible after they leave the rocket. This can fixed by selecting Manage Worlds.

 

I have no custom content, the Get to Work and Get Together expansion packs, and run the game in Windows 10 Home 64 bit.

 

The effect can be seen here: youtube.com/watch?v=GB_tPVbRgNc

This has been happening on-and-off since I purchased the game a month ago. It's more likely to happen when multiple sims are on the lot, and I Woohoo in the rocket. 

 

I will try to shower and take a bath.

 

I will also attempt to get a better video of the bug.

I'll try if I can duplicate

 

Do you know what graphics card you have ? Do you have any other invisibility issues ?

I run the game on an Intel HD integrated graphics card, which is a low end card.

 

I do not have any other invisibility issues.

 

Something else I should note is that the rocket has all of its upgrades.

I had my sim take a shower, and they indeed became visible again.

Is the chip above minimum requirements ?

 

I'm going to see if I can duplicate but I might not be as I have a dedicated card.

You're likely right about this being an issue with my hardware. From what I can tell, my processor and graphics card are below the system requirements.

 

Thank you for the help. If you're unable to replicate the issue, we could assume that this is indeed what is causing the bug.

I'm not able to replicate so if your computer is below specs, I doubt it's something they are likely going to fix, especially since you can easily fix it.

 

I'm going to change the tag to Feedback to see if there's more users with this issue.
