New day, new patch, no apparent Mac fixes on the horizon

PC: 1.60.54.1020/Mac: 1.60.54.1220 has just been released with various bug fixes, none of which seem to address the multitude of Mac specific bugs starting to pile up.

If you’re on a Mac and no longer experiencing one or more of these issues please let me know so I can feel slightly happier that we’re not seemingly being overlooked again:

  1. Cannot run the game in macOS 10.11 El Capitan
  2. Cannot run the game in macOS 10.12 Sierra with AMD GPUs
  3. Static type lines across game screen
  4. Lines appearing over UI at bottom of the screen
  5. First Person View off centre
  6. Glitchy UI (not attributed to Mods)
  7. Shadow line following your Sim indoors
  8. Black square shadow under Sim

1 & 2 – are game breakers unless you update your version of macOS through the Mac App Store.

3 – may be fixed by turning off Edge Smoothing.

4 – can be fixed by playing in windowed mode.

5 – can be fixed by disabling Retina display in the in-game graphics options

6 – can be fixed by not skipping through the loading screens when launching the game

7 – no fix

8 – can be fixed by editing the GraphicsRules.sgr file (follow link above)

  1. Hi,

    It’s the first time that I try to download TS3 on a macbook. These are my specifics: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640:

    Chipsetmodel: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640
    Type: GPU
    Bus: Ingebouwd
    VRAM (dynamisch, max.): 1536 MB
    Fabrikant: Intel
    Apparaatcode: 0x5926

    I tried your help with downloading the super patch and I’ve followed all the instructions on this link https://bluebellflora.com/2018/07/24/sims-3-mac-players-i-need-your-help/#Filesready but unfortunately nothing is working so far. I still get the message: Unknown problem occurred. How could I fix this?
