Will try that.

 

I actually already had the antialiasing set to 2x from when nvidia helped.I will change the others and post back.

Edit: In fact I had all of these already set.Except for application controlled.

Lines gone, but game is terrible looking, looks like I have it on low graphics.

@springfairy556  That's too bad; I was hoping there would be at least some improvement.  Thanks for testing though.

 

And nice house, even on low settings.

Thanks Standard smile I have my settings on high except for water and detailed lots.Aside from the lines the computer runs great.I regret not going to a desktop sooner😇 I ended just ignoring the lines, tech guy didn’t think it would cause any harm to my system.

I thought I would post an update here.I saw a thread where someone was having trouble getting their card recognized and you had mentioned windows 10 sometimes overrides the application on what it uses for CPU, even the nvidia control panel.

 

so I followed the instructions and set it so the sims 3 runs on high processing.

I loaded my game(after restarting my PC) and the lines are gone....as well as the flickering issues I was having.

I don't know if it will help with everyone, but it did for me.

This is what I followed.

Re: Sims 3 white lines

@springfairy556  Wait, what?  That is so strange.  I mean, your computer doesn't even have an integrated graphics chip for Windows to try to use instead of the Nvidia card.  Although now that I think about it... maybe the setting is more about power saving or performance, and not the cards listed themselves?  I don't know; this is something I'll end up asking the real expert.

 

It's wonderful that the setting fixed the white lines for you, regardless of the explanation.  I wouldn't have thought to recommend that for a computer already using the correct card, but I'm really glad you decided to experiment.  And yes, it's definitely helpful that you posted this, whether it helps everyone with the issue or only a few.

 

Tagging @SunflowerSimmies and @Bts152, so you both see the above post.  Please let us know whether it makes a difference.

It is so weird isn't, it was the only thing I hadn't done nor did any tech support do, so I figured why not.

Hope it helps others.

What settings was engaged before you changed to "High Performance"?

It was on default settings, I don't ever mess with windows settings.Everything is default.

But I decided to give that a try and it got rid of the lines for me.
