So I just downloaded Sims 4 on Mac. When it finished downloading I went into CAS and I couldn't see any of the clothing or hair color. I could only see little grains of color. I tried changing the graphics settings but nothing worked. Any help is appreciated.

Is it normal for my whole computer to slow down and lag while playing in full screen mode? When I play in windowed mode my computer doesn't lag. I don't know if it's normal since I don't normally play games on my mac side. I didn't have that problem in bootcamp.
Model: late 2013 15-inch retina macbook pro
Processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750M 2GB
Storage: 500 GB flash storage

so I was playing the sims 4 on my pc and now I want to play on the mac. so I read that all you need to do is go on your existing origin account and download it. however when I try to go to my games and click on the Sims 4 it says "game only avaliable on windows" what do I do?

For anyone with the Intel HD 4000 I may have a suggestion that prevents your game from crashing. My Intel HD card specifically has 1,024 MB. When I first launched the game there was no problem whatsoever, but the problem did start after I transferred my bootcamp saves to OS X. The game would have glitched graphics and would essentially crash my system and/or the game. I uninstalled and reinstalled but I was careful as to which transfers I switched into the mac portion.
Specifically looking at the folder named "saves" within the Sims 4 folder are two folders and one save file which should be named something like "Slot_00000001.save" When transferring my saves I didn't just replace/merge the folder/files, I went inside the folder of saves that I wanted from my bootcamp portion, selected all the save files (do not transfer/replace the two folders "Scratch" and "SerialGUID" or the file "Slot_00000001.save") take the rest of the files and move them to your mac "Saves" folder.
This solved my crashing problems and i'm now able to change my graphics settings, and I even have my saved games! What I'm thinking is that some windows files from my bootcamp portion were corrupting and tampering with the Sims 4 on my mac portion thus making it crash constantly. I should also mention that I tried transferring the "Tray" folder and the "SavedSimInfoData" folder on my first install, but I didn't on the second installation (I would recommend not transferring those folders). I also unchecked laptop mode, even on my bootcamp portion this mode was kind of weird for me but it may help you. If anyone needs any further help I will do my best to help everyone I can, I know this may all seem confusing through text but if it can get us HD 4000 people playing before we wait for a possible patch it's all worth it!
Just as a post note, all the folders and files I'm referring to should be located in Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4

@bluebellFlora Ok, I changed my graphic settings the first time I played and after that I've tried to start the game but it just crashes, is there any way to clear these settings back to the default??
Please help! Thank you
Some users with the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics card are reporting issues in CAS. If people with this card could post about how their game is running that would be great. If you have this card DO NOT up your graphical settings from the default Low setting. If you have already upped your settings and the game has gone haywire, go into Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 and move your Options.ini file onto your desktop. Your game will recreate a new one.
