You know when you quit your game and the walls go a bit transparent and weird? I’ve always liked it but today I thought it looked really cool. The snow and light just looked perfect,… More
This is not a Mac only bug but affects users with integrated Intel chips. In the Mac family that is 13″ MacBook Pros, non-Touch Bar entry level 15″ MacBook Pros, all MacBook Airs, all MacBooks, Mac minis and entry level iMacs.
The bug is seen when entering First Person View/Camera in live mode:
Thankfully SimGuruNick has found a workaround and tweeted it for Windows users:
To access the GraphicsRules.sgr file on a Mac and make this change:
- Right click/Ctrl click on the Sims 4 app in your Applications folder and select Show Package Contents from the menu that appears.
- Open the Contents folder then double click the GraphicsRules.sgr file to open with TextEdit.
- Hit CTRL and F to bring up the search bar, type in skinning then hit enter.
- You should get two hits, the first one will already say false at the end. The second will say true and will be under the Intel section.
- Change the true to false then quit TextEdit, the file should automatically save. If it prompts for a save, save it.
You should now be eyeball and mouth free! Thanks to SimGuruNick for posting the workaround and also to adambrown_1982 at AHQ who allowed me to use his pictures and confirmed that changing the value to false also works.
Update 13/11/18 – The patch is out! And upside down screenshots are fixed!! You can read the full patch notes here.
The November patch will be released next Tuesday 13th and is going to be BIG. We haven’t had a patch since August so this one is long overdue. This is a lot of stuff we’re getting. As always, remember to move out your Mods folder before updating – you have been warned 😀
In the patch you can expect:
Get Famous update
We will get a pre-release update to ready our base game. This is nothing new and has happened before the release of all previous packs.
We don’t know what they are but fingers crossed there are lots of juicy fixes. Maybe the upside down screenshots will be fixed?
We finally get to alter the terrain in Lots. This was shown in a recent stream and it looks very, very cool.
EA/Maxis are updating the version of Python used by the game from 3.3.5 to 3.70. This is a really big deal for script mod creators as all current versions of script mods will no longer work. Thankfully SimGuruModSquad has given plenty of notice so most creators are busy updating their mods so they will carry on working. You can read more about it here.
What does this mean for those using script mods? You must move out all mods with the .ts4script extension from your Mods folder before patching your game. After updating check the creator’s page for an updated version of the file to add back into your Mods folder. If the creator has not updated it then do not add back the old version – it will not work.
First Person Camera
Just announced today, you can now switch to first person camera view in live mode. If you get motion sickness this definitely isn’t for you.
So, that is a lot of stuff we’re getting. As always, remember to move out your Mods folder before updating – you have been warned 😀
