Mac Sims 4 shadow bug

We have a new Mac specific bug that’s popped up since the November patch, game version 1.47.49.1220.

If you play with laptop mode off you will see a weird straight line shadow following your Sim around when they are inside:

A workaround at the moment is to enable laptop mode in your game. You could also go into the GraphicsRules.sgr file and change the RenderShadowsEnabled value to false but enabling laptop mode is a lot quicker and easier. You may get the awful pink floors bug back though so you decide which is worse!

We have a thread over at AHQ so please do take a minute to press the Me Too button so EA are aware of how widespread it is. If you have a minute I’d really appreciate it if you could please post your Mac model too and version of macOS – https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Mac-Sims-cast-weird-shadows/m-p/7178640

macOS 10.14 Mojave – Sims 3 and Sims 4 update

I have macOS Mojave beta installed and so far Sims 3 is still loading and playable.

I did get the following dialogue box stating that the game will stop working at some point with a future version of macOS, not dissimilar to the one currently popping up in High Sierra and linking to the same Apple support page:

I also tried Sims 4 and was surprised to get a similar dialogue box. Origin and Sims 4 are already 64-bit so this message shouldn’t be popping up:

I really have no idea what software this dialogue box is referring to. If anyone has any idea please share, it would be great to know 🙂

I’ll keep testing after each build is released and report any changes here.

Seasons is Expansion Pack 5

Seasons is finally coming to the Sims 4 and I am SO looking forward to it!

This isn’t a news site but I thought this was definitely worth a mention. I’m also interested in how this will perform on older Macs and those with lower specs. so when it’s released I’d love to hear your comments. You can get your sticky little mitts on this little beauty on the 22nd June!
