Hi ! I just bought the sims castaway stories off Facebook market place, got the game downloaded and opening through compatibility mode and did the graphics rule changes in notepad to make the resolution match my screen, but the water looks like a blue blob mess and Im afraid to even load a household. I've been searching but I can't seem to find my next steps. Help me please!

    Hi :)

    I haven't played it in ages but there's information which might at modthesims for not only resolution, which you fixed, but for graphic details... maybe - http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=617794

    it sounds like you need to turn off simple terrain in the graphics ini. I am playing Castaway Stories on Windows 10 with a modern graphics card, and the game runs fine. search for simpleterrain and edit all three examples to be the opposite of what they were.




    This is how Castaway Stories looks for me in Windows 10, at 1920x1200 resolution, after simply changing the graphicsrules ini to have a custom resolution, and disabling simpleterrain. Looks pretty amazing for a laptop game.
