TS3-Island Paradise (Underwater world is in low resolution)

Post by dreferreira on Mon 24 Jun - 18:31

Everything works fine with the expansion and i have the latest patch on the Launcher, but when i Dive in specific dive zones the underwater world is in EXTREMELY low resolution. Even when i max every option in the graphics menu the graphics in the entire game evolve, but the underwater world is still very choppy and very pixely like nothing I've ever seen in The Sims 3.
Please give me some assistance

Hello,

I haven't seen the underwater world yet, my game keeps crashing right after sims get into sea so I have no idea about either of the problems Razz

Maybe they kept to graphics lower not to affect the game performance? You know, Sims 3 already is too buggy and laggy so maybe they thought not to make harder to work the game? It's my personal opinion, I'll return with more information Smile

I'm pretty sure the game is supposed to show the underwater world in full definition option - just like the rest of the Sim World. And both in the previews and sneak peeks with the people behind Island Paradise the image of the underwater world was clear and crisp. And screenshots taken by people who tried the game before it was available, curtsey of EA also showed a very pleasant to look at underwater world.
I just want to clarify that at this point i've reinstalled the expansion and the "problem" is still there - bad graphics underwater.

I've been underwater and you ARE supposed to see it properly, yes. You can zoom in for more clarity / HD and zoom out for a more opaque cloudy looking view... so something definitely isn't right there. Not sure, maybe your graphics driver needs updating? Just a guess? Maybe it's too graphics heavy?! Can you get a screen shot?

Hello,

Are you playing your game on a laptop computer, by any chance ? If yes, what is the graphics card of it ? If it's an "integrated graphics chipset", then updating the drivers might not be enough.

Have you also tried the tool "Gamebooster" ? Google for that - it should be available on "Piratebay".

I don't know how this works in Mac computers, Phoebe, but in Windows, you should delete the contents of the folder Currentgame.sims3 (located in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3) AFTER EVERY CRASH. So if there is such a folder in Mac systems too, please delete the contents of it. Otherwise, this might be just another in-game bug. I will test this expansion as soon as I get to it. Wink

Hello,


Consider this: If you were to go underwater, things would look a little blurry, even if you were wearing goggles. Perhaps EA tried to recreate that effect.

Eeek.. No, this has to be their computers, cause my underwater looks nothing like this.  

I play on a laptop with "integrated graphics chipset" and everything is fine for me.

All my graphics are turned all the way up, and I don't use gamebooster.

Hello,


It may be the card, or drivers then.
I have not tested this myself and I'm not sure I will. Considering my pc shouldn't be able to run the game as reasonable as it does, I'm reluctant to add any EP's.

I have a GeForce GT 650M - used to play hard-graphics games like Tomb Raider and Batman Arkam City in almost maximum and very smoothly. I'm sorry but i don't think it makes sense to say my drivers are the problem, they are updated and have always served me best when playing The Sims 3. And yes i'm on a laptop with intel based graphics

Well , I downloaded Island Paradise on 24th of June , using utorrent on another site . Another torrent than *Games4world*'s one becouse the speed of the torrent was 0.1 Kb and that would make me wait for that download something like 1 month Smile) . Could that torrent have a problem ? 

(Again , sry for my English , i'm not used to talk so much using English . )

Well, more specificly, buy a new graphic card DESIGNED FOR INTEGRATED GRAPHICS AND GAMING. Well, the underwater view of my game is blurry as well. Maybe it's my graphic card problem. I experienced huge lags when I zoomed into uncharted islands also... Any ideas?

Guys i no longer have the problem. Here's what I did, but unfortunately i doubt many of you will be able to do as i did.
I right clicked on the sims 3 launcher in the desktop and selected "run with graphic processor..." and select "High Performance Nvidia Processor" - which is available on my pc, therefore the reason why many of you might not have the same option. The previous selection was "Default Nvidia Processor".
And the underwater world no longer appears in low def. Even with the default settings the Sims 3 comes with the world is STILL in high def. I hope it help you guys a little bit

I have the issues too. Even though it's not a huge problem, I would still like to fix it. I tried changing the settings on my graphic card to " High Performance" and also tired "High Quality" settings on my graphic card and still the underwater world looked the same - pixelated. This is only the underwater world though, my normal view of the game is fine. 

Sorry, if this was hard to understand. I don't post at all. :newfag:

Have you guys heard of Quxxn? She's got a hella alienware computer. Neevertheless, when she filmed her "Let's Play The Sims 3: Island Paradise Part 3", her screen looks blurry as well when diving underwater.
Check it out here:
