@XXJOEY145  I've split your post into its own thread because the other thread was quite old.

 

Try removing options.ini from Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.  This will reset all your in-game options, including the graphics options.  Don't change any of the options, at least not yet.  Instead, first load a new save and see how it looks.  If it's normal, quit to desktop and load your existing save.  If that's normal too, you can exit to the Main Menu and adjust your graphics and other options to whatever you want.  Afterwards, be sure to quit to desktop before loading any save.

 

If the graphics issues show up even in that new save, please run a dxdiag and attach it to a post.

★★ Guide
I would also recommend checking DeviceConfig.log in the same folder. This often arises from a poorly edited GraphicsRules.sgr file. If DeviceConfig file is blank, then GraphicsRules is almost certainly broken.
