Hi all, I skimmed through the posts to see if anyone has had these problems, but I didn't see anything. Hope I'm not making too redundant of a post.
I installed the Sims 3 onto my 2020 Macbook with M1 chip. It runs very well, but I've run into a bunch of graphics issues I've never encountered on PC. From the least to most annoying:
1. Some thumbnails are randomly outlined in purple or have black backgrounds. It's weird but I don't really care.
2. Blocky eyelashes. From what I've heard, this is an almost universal problem on macs. My Sims are a little uglier than I expected in general, but IDK if it's my graphics or the game itself. Also not too bothered by it.
Now two more annoying problems:
1. terrain paints don't work. at all. I try to use them and it doesn't "stick." It also deletes all other paints on the lot. So I can only have brush-sized circle of terrain paint on a lot at any time. Hopefully I explained this issue well enough.
2. This has only affected one of my lots so far, so I think it's an issue with a specific texture/object. Whenever the walls are up, if I position my camera towards the house at a certain angle, the entire screen (minus UI) flashes reds.
These last two issues I'd really like to find a solution for, especially the terrain paints since it's on every single lot, unlike the red flashing.
