Upside down screenshots in the Sims 4 on Mac since the August patch

This one is funny – since today’s patch all screenshots taken in-game are upside down and back to front.

Not really too much of an issue but something to be aware of if you like to share them from within the game. You can easily turn them the right way in Preview (Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Screenshots) by rotating 180° and flipping on the horizontal. This doesn’t help if you want to access them in-game though as they appear to have disappeared:

We have a thread running at AHQ on the issue but nothing really that needs feedback at the moment, EA are aware of the problem. It wouldn’t hurt to hit the Me too button though – https://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-Mac/Screenshots-upside-down-and-back-to-front-since-August-patch/td-p/6987234

Seasons Sprinkler Recolours

It’s so lovely to have the sprinkler back in the game but the colours are just too bright for me. I recoloured in six muted colours including two shades of green so the sprinkler can blend in more with the garden.

This is a simple recolour of the Maxis Sprinkle-O-Matic 2001 so you will need the Seasons Expansion Pack for this to place in your game. I also dropped the price from §350 to §50.

Just a quick reminder because EA have recently launched Origin Access Premier – as of today, 1st August 2018, neither Origin Access nor Origin Access Premier are available for macOS.

You will need to Boot Camp your Mac and run Windows if you would like to take full advantage of these services. You will get a warning window if you try to purchase Origin Access on a Mac:
