**THE SIMS 3** // **MACBOOK 2015****PLEASE READ**

I'm actually here for The Sims 3, but I just received a 2015 MacBook for Christmas and I'm having issues with The Sims 3. (The Sims 4 works perfectly fine and runs smoothly on my new MacBook) but the problem is, the graphics start out low so I go into my settings to change them to high, restart the game like it says and then I go back into the game, the main  menu is fine but back ingame the screen is white and you can't see your game. I don't think it's my laptop but can anyone help with this issue? Frown I really wanna play The Sims 3 again. Thank you! -Lynsey 

 

MY MAC DETAILS (IF NEEDED): ***!!!

** Version 10.11 

OS X El Capitan **

 

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015)

Processer: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5

Memory: 8 GB 1867 MHz DDr3

The problem is your laptop as the game is not compatible on newer Macs because the graphics card is not supported. Please read the stickied thread on this forum specifically related to post 2013 Macs - http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/Mac-Issues-playing-on-newer-post-2013-Macs/m-p/4935394#U4935394
