Sims 4: Island Living - beach towels not showing and very glitchy

★★★★ Novice

I’ve downloaded the Sims 4: Island Living and having LOADS of issues! 

1) The beach towels aren’t showing AT ALL. Can find them on build mode but when I go to place them down, they’re invisible. Sims just look like they’re lying on the ground.

2) Suntan doesn’t work. Whether that’s to do with the above but when I get the sim to sunbathe, they just lay there and burn. I have bought the sunblock on build mode but you can’t even click on it to use it??? 

3) Snorkling. When I get my sims to snorkel, they just run around in circles around the buoy.

4) My sims don’t seem to swim when I get them to go back to land whilst they are swimming in the ocean. They just run across water!!! 

 

Bit annoying for game play. Does anyone have any solutions?!

Hi @VickyLH31 

 

1. This is a known issue for low graphics settings. There's a bug report for it here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-IL-Invisible-Beach-Towels-on-Low-Lighting-Settings/...

2. Can you click on the Sim to apply it ?

3. Sounds like a cc issue. Do you have any mods/cc in your game ?

4. see 3.

@latricenl Did you restart the game after changing the settings or is this about something else than the towels ?

Please use the thread linked above for anything towel related.

Thanks

It's the towels and I thought I was using the thread. I restarted the game,  but not my PC. Will try it again and do that. Thx.

@latricenl A game restart should work. If it still doesn't work, could you post a picture of your graphics settings in this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-IL-Invisible-Beach-Towels-on-Low-Lighting-Settings/...
