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

Oh yeah, the map screen is also in the Upside Down when you try to place a lot from the Gallery:

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.

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.
