Sims 4 Build Mode Windows

★★★ Newbie

In my build mode in the sims 4 the windows are frosted in the game and you can't see out of them is there a way to make them able to see through them?

Thanks. Unfortunately there is no magic fix for your issue as you have low end integrated Intel graphics. You can try disabling laptop mode but your game may crash if it struggles to run on higher performance settings. If it does crash go into Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 and drag the Options.ini file to your desktop then restart the game. This will reset your graphics options as the game determines the best settings for your Mac.

Have you encountered this problem without custom content and/or mods installed? With which windows are you experiencing the problem and are these windows which had been previously placed on a lot or are they newly placed windows. Please list all items which are causing the problem.

It's a known issue with the game running in OS X and has been since it was launched a year ago. It affects all Macs with Intel HD 4000 graphics as the in-game graphics options need to be set reasonably low in order for the game to run semi-smoothly. It is also apparent if you have Laptop Mode enabled.

 

Which Mac do you have?
