I'm also having this issue with my AMD 6600XT. I hope it's fixed soon. Frown

I think it’s interfering with ray tracing 

 

because Rx 6000 series have ray tracing

I've recently had emails from AMD customer support claiming that The Sims 4 is not supported by AMD 5000 & 6000 series gpus.  I feel like this is a massive mistake and that EA needs to contact AMD, why AMD would not support The Sims 4 one of EA arts biggest selling games with their newest gpu's is beyond me.  At this point I feel the community should be warned NOT to upgrade to a new AMD gpu until they officially support them and this will require somebody at EA or Maxis to reach out to AMD.  Honestly this is beyond dumb.

 

"AMD customer service response: "Please note even the SIM 4 game is not compatible with the latest hardware 5000 and 6000 series GPUs. Thanks for contacting AMD. Best regards, Tarun. AMD Global Customer Care"

have this same glitch, using a 6600xt. might swap for a 3060ti or someth

 

EDIT: I think I just found a way to fix this?? use DXVK (essentially translates directx games to vulkan or something idk if my explanation is accurate). It's a really easy fix, a matter of copying a file to the game/bin directory.

 

 

I literally just found out about this 3 minutes ago so i haven't played at length yet. But I booted a game and reflections in mirrors were normal.

@Therumlon Thank you so much. I can confirm it works. And was easy to "install". But still hope we get official fix.
