can't see through windows when walls are up in Sims 4

★★ Novice

I play sims 4 on Mac, i have been playing it for a few years now, but recently something has happened which has caused me to not be able to see through the windows on any of my houses. You can't see in from the outside when the walls are up, it is quite annoying as i can't see what my windows look like properly. I was wondering if this has happened for everyone and it was just part of an update or if it is something wrong, if it is then how can i fix it? i have tried updating my game and fixing it.

These pictures show what i mean...

Hi @Sophiemolly11,

 

That could be happening due to low graphic settings. Lower graphic settings means lower details in order to be able to play the game smoothly

Thank you so much @fons_garmo! I had a look and my Graphics settings were on low, so i turned them up and the problem has gone! I can now see through my windows. Thanks for your help.

Nice one. Thanks for that. I play console and Mac. I added mods on my Mac, just to check them out then noticed the windows went opaque. Thought it was something to do with the mods as the windows were fine before I added them. 

The graphic settings must have automatically adjusted to lower.

how exactly do you adjust the graphic settings?
