    It seems to me that the title of this thread is meant to incite arguments... but I will play along with the 'fun clipping pics' since I have so many.

    LOL my thoughts exactly.. it's like she's thinking 'Oh my God.. I'm a witch!'. :D

    I know some people thinking clipping is bad, but I find it absolutely hilarious.

    I definitely feel this happens more in ts4 and it ruins many pictures. theres always someone clipping.
    Sims go through objects and insanely stand inside other sims bodies. I didnt have a problem with them passing through each other a bit when they need to get through, cause that made faster and better routing than previous games, but come one. Why do you have to stand on the same spot or stand inside a table?

    I don't really mind the clipping in TS4, but recently it's taken a turn for the worse, Sims don't smoothly clip through each other any more like they used to, now they sort of shake as they pass through each other like theres a mini earthquake happening under their feet. I've also noticed Sims have a lot more trouble routing in my game now, they tend to glitch through the staircase when walking up/down, and quite a lot of other objects too.

    Not game breaking for me, but it would be better if it worked smoother. :/

    I recall threads where some suggested there was no 'clipping' in Sims3. Once I understood what was meant by that term, I realized, they were mistaken. I have proof. And while I know it's suggested we give a toddler a book to read, whilst they sit on the potty during training, this is taking it a bit too far …

    This is one of my favorite shots of 'clipping' in that iteration: [img][/img]Screenshot-23a.jpg

    I have to say that this one is my All-Time favorite, though [img][/img]Screenshot-14.jpg I can only guess that the chauffeur really wished he was driving an Ice Cream Truck …

    Please, let's keep this friendly — and funny. I'm not trying to pick a fight, just to show those who have a more 'romantic', reminiscence about the previous iteration, that it wasn't exactly as 'perfect' as they recall.

    Please share your hilarious 'clipping' moments from either iteration.



    I'm not picking a fight but my point is to show you that TS3 is as bad as TS4. Seems plausible.

    And the first screenshot is a bug. As for cars yes they do clip but TS4 is the mother of clipping, due to the fact that there is no object registration in there.

    I had a lot worse clipping in TS3 than TS4 with my sims. Especially at parties. The clipping in TS4 is so much calmer and doesn't bother me as much as TS3.

    @HIFreeBirdIH Well as you can see one of the kids was telling a ghost story so the kids had more interesting things to do.

    You can tell it was post Generations though ;)

    Mine's about equal, like I said. The REAL difference is that in TS3 it's break my Sims or the gameplay, while in TS4 it prevents a break.

    @Sigzy05 Your name spelling keeps reminding me of the villain group in one of my games - SyZyGy. I smile every time I see it. lol *loves her own stupid characters haha*

    The first picture in the OP I'm completely unfamiliar with, never seen that, but of course there are occasional glitches. The second one is a car driving through another car (which is a blessing, we don't need traffic jams in the Sims and accidents aren't part of the gameplay). The only clipping I had (two sims clipping in each other) is when I used MOO in my active save, meaning the save where I actually play the game. Which is why I always build my houses in a seperate save. So much for 'proof'. Apart from that this can turn into a very funny topic, because clipping can look very silly. I'll dive into my own archive to find some ;)

    Just so you know I have never used MOO. Seriously, there are just some things of which I am timid. MOO is one of them. I was never fond of boolprop, either. That also scared me. LOL

    I have a gaming PC and, even so, I did have to make some adjustments for the game. Once those were done though (and with the help of NRaas mods) I no longer have issues. Although, I never have been able to play in Isla Paradiso. Crashes the game EVERY time. I'm considering just uninstalling that EP.

    I LOVE IP most (because IRL I am a beach freak), but it doesn't usually crash for me, UNLESS I had open the online feature to chat with others IRL, while playing.
    ( I had ALL expansions, stuff packs, & all Store content installed - even CC - sometimes around 10-12GB).

    Instead, in IP, for me, it randomly has occasional stutters. This is mostly from ROUTING issues. :s
    As in, whomever designed IP, put things in areas that made Sims try to do things they couldn't.
    Examples: pool ladder near doors, tub turned wrong direction, archways in bad places, door in bad areas, etc.

    With Sims 3, IF you have Sims trying to go, or trying to use, things that have OBSTRUCTIONS, it will cause much of the stutters/lags, in the game.
    I remember a time I tried to be silly & put a high-rise building onto an island area, before our Sims had the ability to swim in water.
    Guess what that caused? Game to freeze up, every couple of minutes. After I removed that building, game ran normal.
    So it's obviously not always about the PC.
    (The recolor/pattern tool didn't lag at all, when it loaded, unless I had a bunch of CC recolors added in.)

    *When I first had Sims 3, & played it on a laptop without dedicated memory, it DID cause random freeze-ups/crashes. I learned a lot since then. :*


    Clipping in Sims 4 is almost the same as with Sims 3, and not much to be done about it, I guess.

    However, there does still seem to be an issue in Sims 4 - that I thought that was supposed to be gone - but isn't...
    .....Sims are right IN FRONT of something, claiming they can't get to something, drop the action from queue list, but - there was NOTHING blocking, at all!
    And, Sims tend to still go the really long way around to do something, even when I tried to design house, or rooms, to avoid that. :/

    I get way worse clipping in TS4 than 3.

    I get WAY more routing issues than I do in sims 4. I'd rather have more clipping and less routing.

    Why I laugh about things being considered too mature with just kissing when the Sims 4 has some very questionable poses with the clipping feature.

    Oh, my! Is he ever going to be 'grounded' for that one. "Johnny Howard Sims!" his mother roared from the kitchen window, "How many times have I told you NOT to play with the mop like that. Now finished scrubbing the patio!" ;)

Then you get a call from your Liberty Insurance Agent and you break into your happy dance." Sorry, I couldn't help myself. LOL

    Only issue I have that does that is washing dishes sometimes. Never had it happen any other time yet.

    But even so it's much improved over TS3's issues. Same clipping but less issues? HECK YEAH I'll take it. Also you can't expect that issue to be completely gone. That's ridiculously high expectations especially for a simulation game made by much the same team. (Not aimed at you personally, just commenting in general terms)
