Sims 4 Glitching and Crashing (MAC Book), help!
★★ Novice

Hi! I've had reoccurring problems with my Sims4 account for the couple of days following the latest update. 

At first it was extremely glitchy to the point where I couldn't see my character in the 'build a sim', they just appeared as a silhouette.  

I then deleted the old mods I had on the game. 

Now whenever I load up the game it lags a little bit on the opening screen. Once I load in the family it will be fine for about a minute then the character's/environment's 'skin' will stretch all over the page (Please ref. the attached video) Once it glitches for about half a minute my macbook will crash and close down. Has anyone else had this problem? I recently bought the Realms of Magic add on if this has anything to do with it. 


I have already tried the following: 


- Deleting all mods (and not re-installing) 

- Re downloading the game.

- 'Repairing' the game on Origin

- Moving the 'options' asset from the 'Electronic Arts' folder to the 'desktop' folder

-  Moving the entire 'Sims 4' folder to Desktop so it creates a new folder

- Changing the game graphics (so that the Sim is on 'high' & most of the environment is 'low') 


(I do have Retina display on, the one time I de-selected it the game immediately crashed.) 


If anyone knows any possible way I can fix this I'll be forever grateful! 

Many thanks,
