Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

So, the map worked properly before you installed Generations? Do you have any Mods or CC installed?
Have your tried changing the graphics options in the game to see if something helps?

Also make sure that the drivers of your graphic card are updated, as that may cause this issue. It's also possible that the GPU isn't recognized by the game. Which graphics card do you have?

Hello Jackjon and welcome,


Adding to what SeoY said...especially if your hardware isn't so strong, it can take a while for the game to "render" (i.e. "create") the world, so for a little while, the neighborhood will be black, but then everything should show up. How long did you wait for the wolrd to become "normal" again ? Try waiting a little while.

Also, try lowering some graphics settings, in the in-game options menu. Good luck, and keep us posted !

So did you already try loweing the graphics settings in the in-game options menu ? For example, lower the resolution, edge smoothing, lot detail, world detail & reflections (or just lower ALL settings).

If you are in doubt about your computer's performance, feel free to check out this site here, and let your computer get "checked" if it is strong enough:

And are your graphics drivers updated too ?

I have to admit though, that this site I linked to ("can you run it") isn't always reliable. Sometimes it says your hardware is too weak, but in fact, you can still run the game, even at high settings.

Try Razer's GameBooster to 'boost' your game; read up on this here:
http://dl.razerzone.com/master-guides/RazerGameBooster/GameBoosterOMG-ENG.pdf



That's all I can suggest. If nothing works, then I'm afraid your computer cannot run the game, indeed. Sad
