I hadn't played my Sims 4 game in around over a month or so, and just opened it up to play yesterday.
I noticed some bizarre glitches in my Sims 4 game which started almost instantly after loading my saved game.
I tried all methods of fixing - removing mods/cc, repairing the game in origin, but to no avail. It seems the cause is most likely my OS (I'm on El Capitan).
I've attached images of the game glitches.
My laptop specs:
OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6 (15G1611)
MacBook Pro Retina (15-inch, Mid 2015)
Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB
I hope that this could get fixed somehow!
@samwisescott Thanks for all the info; it's really helpful.
@AriaMad2 This OP has already tested in a clean game folder, with graphics glitches still present. There are issues with running the game in El Capitan, so this is likely an OS problem, or more specifically a problem with the version of Metal built into this OS.
Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats & Dogs, City Living, Island Living, Get to Work, Get Famous, Seasons, Parenthood, Dine Out, Laundry Day and Holiday Celebration.

What happens when the bug occurs? In CAS there are strange dots in the corner of the aspirations and clothing options and in build and live mode strange black lines come out of the sims.
What do you expect to see? I expect this not to happen, but after just 5 minutes of playing the game freezes and crashes.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
