Eternal Island, a new Sims 4 Residential Lot

I really miss the ability to be able to edit the town or create worlds. When I saw the Reef Finery lot in Sulani I thought it would be perfect to try and incorporate the town furniture into the lot using MOO by overhanging objects across the lot boundary as much as possible.

I have loved making this lot, it’s so tranquil and instantly calming in game!

I made the lot look like it takes over the island with ample use of MOO and placing objects right on the edge of the lot so make sure MOO is enabled before placing. You can see the difference here between MOO on and MOO off:

I used content from the following packs:

  • EPs – Island Living, Get Famous, Seasons, Cats & Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get To Work
  • GPs – Strangerville, Jungle Adventure, Parenthood, Vampires, Spa Day
  • SPs – Laundry Day, Toddler Stuff, Bowling Night, Vintage Glamour, Backyard, Romantic Garden, Movie Hangout, Cool Kitchen, Perfect Patio

Sims 4 does not currently run in the macOS Catalina beta

Before you rush to install the public beta of Catalina, be aware that the Sims 4 does not currently run in this new OS. This is because of the ActivationUI file which is still 32-bit and 32-bit is no longer supported. EA fixed this in the April ’19 patch but unfortunately had to roll it back in the subsequent hot fix patch as it rendered the game unplayable for all users running 10.7 Lion..

If you are desperate to install a beta version of the operating system on your Mac then make sure to install Mojave on an external drive or install a VM so you can still play Sims 4 and 32-bit apps.

Bad lag in CAS since the June patch for Sims 4

As well as the Trackpad issue appearing since the 18 June patch we have a new lag issue in CAS that is pretty awful and affecting Mac users with Intel chips, judging by the posted specs. of some. You can see a video here of the issue.

Thankfully there are some really helpful Mac Simmers in the thread, candiecoatediv and twin-reverb-sims, who are being really responsive to requests for more information and actively trying suggestions. Twin-reverb-sims has suggested that doing the following has helped to minimise the lag a little:

  • Go into System Preferences > Accessibility > Display and check the box next to Reduce motion.
  • Go into System Preferences > Display and change the resolution towards larger text.

Please reply in the AHQ thread if you are experiencing this issue in CAS since the patch with your Mac information. And if you have any further suggestions which may help others, then definitely please post.
