It usually happens when playing the sims, regardless of the MacBook or PC you have! Don’t worry tho, you MacBook can’t take it! 

Mine also gets noisy and a little bit hot when playing but this happened to me with every single laptop/PC/Mac that I ever used to play the game. As long as it doesn’t crash you’re good!

Newcrest is having a MAJOR graphic glitch!

★ Apprentice

Ummm, I don't know what's going on, but Newcrest is having major graphic issues all of a sudden. This is the only neighborhood it's happening to, AND these are the only impacted lots.

 

Does anyone happen to know how I can fix this issue?

 

P.S. I deleted the builds on those lots thinking it had something to do with it, but it's still happening.

 

See sample images below:

I should also mention I’ve been playing this game well over a month with the same CC, so I’m not sure what happened all of a sudden for it to be acting this way. :/

Unfortunately, it’s your Mac! There’s been known issues like this going on for the new MacBook Pro 16” (I have glitches in San myshuno) and there are not fixes for it yet

I've moved your post into this ongoing thread around the 16" MacBook Pros as they are displaying similar issues.

Can you have a look at the opening post on page 1 and try the suggestions. Your problems in Newcrest look like the problems in San Myshuno which I think also affects specific lots.

Do you think this happened after the 18 August patch?

OK, I’ll go look. Thank you!

 

And I can’t say for certain it was due to the patch, but I can definitely confirm it happened after the 18th. So yes, there’s a strong possibility it might have been due to the patch. =(

Weird because I’ve never had it happen before.
Lame. Frown

 

Thanks for letting me know!

If you move your Mods folder out and trash the localthumbcache.package file does it still happen?
